Born in the year 1761 in the state of Pennsylvania on the Schuylkill River near Philadelphia.2. He has a record of his age in a family Bible at his home.3. Union District, So. Carolina. At the time he was called into service until the close of the Revolutionary War he was residing in Union District South Carolina, then in Gaines(?) County Georgia, and then to Morgan County, and then to Jasper where he now resides making in all a residence in Georgia of 37 years as well as he recalls.4 & 5 (unclear)6. He received no written discharge7. He refers to Jerimiah Saunders, a clergyman __ The last a Revolutionary Pensioner.Sworn to and Subscribed in open Court this 29th day of April 1834 (Signed) - Lucian H Lamar and John Davidson."Major Raymond Deméré II (1750?- 1791) was the only son of Captain Paul Deméré (d. 1760) of the British Army. Raymond was most likely born and lived at Lot 5 of the South tract at Frederica for the first few years of his life. Raymond was named in honor of his uncle, Captain Raymond Deméré (1702-1766) who himself had a son in 1752 whom he also named Raymond Deméré. This cousin Raymond remained on St. Simons Island until his death in 1829.Raymond Deméré II (1750?- 1791) would have had an interesting childhood: in September 1752, a disastrous hurricane struck Charleston; in 1754 his father traveled to England to present himself to King George II and to begin the purchase and appointment process for his commission as Captain; in July of 1755, Captain Paul Deméré survived the great massacre of General Edward Braddock's expedition against the French in Pennsylvania; in 1756 a massive hurricane directly struck St. Simons Island; in late summer 1757, Captain Paul Deméré was ordered to command Fort Loudoun (now in Tennessee), which was the westernmost outpost of the British Empire; and when he was just 10 years old, Raymond Demeres father, Captain Paul Deméré, was killed in a massacre in August 1760 at Fort Loudoun.Raymond Deméré II (1750?-1791), was married twice: first to Mary Elizabeth Milledge (1759-1783), who died childless at 24, and second to Mary Ann Miller (1744-1808). Their children were Raymond Deméré (1785-1788?), Ann Miller Deméré (b. 1786), Mary Elizabeth Deméré (1788-1863), Frances Anne Deméré (1789-1849), and Raymond Paul Deméré (1791-1885). At 25 years old in July 1775, Raymond Deméré II was one of the forty- five deputies assembled at the Provincial Congress in Savannah. This Congress approved sending delegates to represent Georgia in the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia. The following year, an incident that became known as the Battle of the Riceboats occurred near Savannah. In February 1776, seven British ships came up the Savannah River. On the night of 2 March 1776, British troops landed on Hutchinson's Island and captured an American officer, Captain John Rice.The next morning, Captain Raymond Deméré II and First Lieutenant Daniel Roberts went under the flag of truce to demand release of the captured officer, and the British took Deméré and Roberts prisoner. The Patriots took several prisoners and placed several prominent Loyalists under arrest. On 20 March 1776, all prisoners were released, including Raymond Deméré II.In just the first three months of his adventure, he was shipwrecked off Cape Hatteras and traveled disguised through Delaware, finally reaching Philadelphia. On 31 May 1777, he met and dined with General George Washington. Raymond Deméré II then participated in the Battle of Short Hills in New Jersey. They then participated in September 1777 in the Battle of Brandywine where Stirling's brigade engaged in the fiercest part of the battle. Shortly after the Battle of Brandywine, Major Raymond Deméré II was apparently sent back to Georgia as the British launched their campaign in the South. In October 1777, Congress authorized the establishment of the office of the Clothier General [quartermaster] of the Continental army. Major Deméré became the Deputy for the State of Georgia. His duties would have included receiving cloth being imported by Congress, having it made into uniforms, and forwarding the finished articles to the Continental Army.Savannah was eventually captured by the British forces under Lieutenant Colonel Archibald Campbell. On 29 December 1778, British forces met little resistance, and literally marched around the Continental flank into Savannah. The British quickly restored the Royal Assembly of Georgia. It is assumed that Major Raymond Deméré II fled Savannah when the British captured it, but his actions of 1779 through 1782 are not certain, although he evidently acted in the capacity of Clothier General of Georgia until at least mid- 1780.Major Raymond Deméré II returned to Savannah and his Parnassus Plantation in Bryan County on the east bank of the Medway River after the War ended. On 20 May 1791, he was thrown from his horse at Major Hardee's Plantation on the Great Ogeechee near Savannah, his neck was broken, and he died in about half an hour. Raymond Deméré II, Revolutionary War Major and hero, only son of massacred redcoat Captain Paul Deméré, was only about 41 or 42 at his untimely death. Given his family lineage and prominence; his wealth, military experience, connections, and status as Revolutionary War hero, Raymond Deméré II could very well have had a second half of his life to rival the first. His next forty years could quite possibly have brought him statewide and perhaps even national successes as they did to James Monroe, his fellow aide-de-camp to Lord Stirling.

Ithaca, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $70 - $200

Description: Title: Asimov's Sherlockian LimericksAuthor: Isaac Asimov - Isaac Asimov (born Isaak Yudovich Ozimov) was an American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books. Asimov was one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards. His books have been published in nine out of ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification.Asimov is widely considered a master of hard science fiction and, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, he was considered one of the "Big Three" science fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series. The Galactic Empire novels are explicitly set in earlier history of the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series. Later, beginning with Foundation's Edge, he linked this distant future to the Robot and Spacer stories, creating a unified "future history" for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A. Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson. He wrote hundreds of short stories, including the social science fiction "Nightfall", which in 1964 was voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America the best short science fiction story of all time. Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science-fiction novels using the pen name Paul French.The prolific Asimov also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as much nonfiction. Most of his popular science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage. He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms. Examples include Guide to Science, the three volume set Understanding Physics, Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery, as well as works on astronomy, mathematics, the Bible, William Shakespeare's writing and chemistry.Asimov was a long-time member and vice president of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members of that organization as "brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs". He took more joy in being president of the American Humanist Association. The asteroid 5020 Asimov, a crater on the planet Mars, a Brooklyn, New York elementary school, and a literary award are named in his honor.Publisher: The Mysterious PressCity: New YorkYear: 1978Printing Information: Signed EditionBinding Style: HardcoverPagination: 60 pagesWidth: 6.5" Height: 7.5"Book Details: Condition / Notes: This is a scarce author-signed first edition.
