Engraved Powder Horn owned by John Greer

Nice 19th century Powder Horn that was engraved and owned by John Greer with animals, a house, an Indian and a federal eagle.  The engraving is cut lightly. This wonderful engraving is easy to see especially in good light. Pvt. John Greer (1753 – 1838) served with Virginia during the American Revolution and after the war came home to his family in Bath county. In Jan 1797-1798 John was married in Bath, Virginia to Jane Callaghan. 1805 he is listed as owning property in Bath, Virginia. By 1810 he is listed as a property owner in Mason County, Virginia. John and his family did not move as Mason County was formed from Bath County and other Virginia counties around 1807.

This Powder Horn bearing John Greer’s initials (JG) and descend though the Greer family to the present owner. While John served in the Revolutionary War this is clearly a horn he created for his personal use while living on the Virginia Frontier during the 19th century before his death in 1838. Based on the engravings it is clearly that John encountered Indians on the frontier, embraced the American Eagle  for the loved his country, encountered wild animals and loved his home all of which are featured on his personal early 19th century frontier Powder Horn..

Neat Virginia Frontier engraved Powder Horn.
