The records in the office of the Adjutant General, War Department, Washington, D.C., show that William Herman served from 10 Jun 1777 to 16 Aug 1780 as a drummer in North's Company, Col William R. Lee's Regiment of the Continental Troops, Revolutionary War.
 
 
 
According to family history, "two Herman brothers came from Pennsylvania and tied their horses so they could graze while the two men slept". North Carolina appealed to them so much that they decided to move their families here.
 

Around 1786 William and his family moved from Pennsylvania to North Carolina where they settled in Lincoln County.  The family was active in the Lyle Creek Community near Newton and Conover, North Carolina.

 

Wilhelm signed his will on 22 Jan 1813 in Lincoln County, North Carolina. He died on 29 Jun 1813 in Lincoln/Catawba County, NC, and was buried in the Old St. Paul's Lutheran Church Cemetery, Newton, NC.
