PREFATORY NOTES. 



I!\it few viiluuiL'S of the Colonial and State liecords cniitaiu more 
iuteivstiiig iufViriuatioii than tliu twciity-secoiul. It contains the 
Journals of ihu Constitutional Conventions of 1788 and of 17S9, 
tlie latter of whieli, at least, has l)een lieretofore inaccessible, altiiough 
the debates in I he former ha\'e in a measure been preserved through 
the liberality of James Iredell and General Davie. For five days 
the Convention of 178'J discussed the Constitution, which then was 
in force in the other States, except Rhode Island, Washington having 
become President in the previous jMarch. The discussion was thor- 
ough, and eight amendments were j)roposed by tlie CJonvention ; but 
whereas in the pre\ious Conventii:in tiie Constitution was neither 
ratified nor rejected by a vote of 18-4 to S3, being 101 majority, now 
the Constitution was adopted by a vote of I'Jo to 77, a majority of 
lis. The change of sentiment indicated by these figures was remark- 
able; but there are some contemporaneous expressions of opinion that 
if Virginia had not acceded to the Constitution, North Carolina 
would not have done so. ii>'S*/'i60 

Some interesting data has been colh'cted with regard to the several 
"alarms" made on the coast by Spanish invasions. In 1741 some 
Spanish privaleers toijk jiossossion of 0<-racolve Inlet, seized the vessels 
arriving, landed and destruyrd the cattle of the inhabitant^, and 
devastated the cuuntry. Vessels of provisions were sent for tlie relief 
of the sufferi'rs, at a cost to the Province of more than ten thousand 
pounds. 

In June, 1747, the Sjjaniards took ])ossession of the town and 
harbor of Jieanfoit, and Colonel Tlionias Tovick called out liis 
regiment to repel them. !Major Miioch Ward was on duty wilh tifty- 
cight men A\hen the tcjwn was taken on '_'() August, and the alarm 
continued mitil 10 Seiit.endH'r, alllioui;h ]irobaf)ly tlie Spaniards 
dejiarteil earlier. On (1 September \\'illiam Moore brought in his 
bill against the public for fifteen hundred pounds of beef foi' main- 
taining and imprisoning ten S])anish negroes, and for a gun wliich 
iiad burst in time of action which lie said cost him eii^liiy jioiinds. 
Tlu'se Sjianisli vessels were largely manned by iiegro(>s and mnhittiies. 

In like manner, there were two alarms on the ('api' J'Car in ihe 
following year. It was early in September, 1718, that the Spanish 
cruisers made an attack on Brunswick, one of th(' vessels being lilown

tion of the defence. IJe tinned ever to Dr. Samuel (ireeu t^evcu'al of 
the Spanish soldiers who were wounded and some whu were badly j 
burnt when the vessel was blown \ip. 'i'lie doctor seems to have taken i 
good care of the prisoners and to have charged reasonably for his J 
dressingj nursing and attention; while William ('ar\er charged tln' 
l)ublic with keeping twenty-nine Spaniards. It was from this vessel 
that the picture was oblaiueil which is still jireservi'd by the \'estry 
of St. James Church at Wilmiugten. 

The ('(liter has thought that it would be interesting to embrace in 
this \olunie the wills of Governor Gabriel John-t(in, Afatlhew Rowan, 
Arthur J)obbs, and Colonel Thomas Pollock as throwing light on the 
jieriod in wliieh they ]i\(.'il. 

Oil page .'il-1 in the n^turii of (Jolonel Kiillierl'ord's Regiment of 
the iiladeii Alilitia for the year 1754 will be found some remarks of 
interest in regard to the inhabitants "(Hi Didwiiing Creek, un the 
head (d' Little I'eedee, lift}' men, a mixe(l crew, a lawless people,

PREFATOIIY NOTES. 



The curivspoiideiice i'oi' 1781 when tlic Tories were so active from 
Surry lo Jiriinswiek well siippleinenls the letters and reports hereto- 
fore puhlislied in these IJecords. Taken together, they remove much 
of tJie oWeurity iu which the operations of that ])eriod have hereto- 
fore heen invuh'td. 'J'lie narrati\-e (if Cdhniel i)a\'id l'\iiiniiig', 
also contained in the ^■(llllnl<■, aids in mnkinj^- clear nnicli that has 
Ix'en iincei'tain. Diit ihi-^ journal \va.- wrilteii ycar^ after the e\'culs, 
i and eori'ohi)rati\-e lestinioiiy is al^'ays desiralilc with rri^ard to 
I Manning's statements. One of the letters pnhlished, that of iVndrew 
Armstrong to Governor Hnrke, written 2S August, 1781, taken in 
1 connection witli Fanuiiig's narrative and sdiiu' letters contained in a 
[irevious \(jhinu', settk\s a point ahoul, wiiieh there has been some con- 
lro\ersy — the date of the IJattle of k'Jizabcthlown. The account given 
in Wheeler's llisl(.iry gi\rs that date as in July, while AFoore fi.xi'S 
it about the middle of Septeudjer, and some very intelligent gentle- 
men have, tlioiiglit that it was in the last, days of Septeiiibor. At that 
baltk' (.'o]on( I Slini;sby was killed. Arni-triing in his lolti-r iiu-nlions

day or tw(j later Tanning reached Cross Cr<'ek-, and tlic Tory parties 
then separated. k\iuning continued down IIk; river, devastated the 
plantations <d' the luibesons and carried his prisoiu'rs to Wiluiiuglon, 
where he obtained another siijjply of ammunition. Neil and liay

to his post at klizabi'tbtown. fanning left Wibningtoii on -IJ 
iVugiist, .-toppeil at Slinu>by's eanip some lioui'S ami then eouliiiued 
his courBC to the interioi'. The next day information reached him of 
Slingsby's disaster, and he sent aid back from his own f(.ree; while, 
lueausc he learnl that .Veil and i'ay were being pressed by Colonel 
Wa.le al Kail Swamp, he liasleue.l (here and readily did'eated Wade 
on tin- tirst day of Septendiev. This woiild li.x Sling-hy's death aliout 
the last of .Vni;iist. Tl is li> be obsrrved llial about a month earlier, on 
4 August, Wade had had a pre\'i(jns ( ngagenieiit, al Kaft Swamp, 
on the N'ei'v saim^ iiioumi, in wdiieh he defeated lYeil and Kay; but 
now he met with a hinaaitable disaster. l''i'om there {''aiming took 
up his r<inle lo l)(cp l;i\-er, and a few days hiter caplured (lo\-ei-iior 
Ihirke at llilkboro; was iulereeplcd at Cane, Creel; by (Jeiieral Ihit- 
ler, and in the haltle was so badly woumieil that tVir <e\-( ral wc(dcs 
he had lo rcanain in hiding in that vicinity. All dotibt ahout the date 
of the Ikittlc of Elizabethtown seems now to be removetl. 



VI rUKFATOIlY NOTES. 

Similarly, some of tlie movenieiits of General Lillington aud the 
gallant Colonel Kenan iu Uuplin are made more clear by the corre- 
spondence contained in this volume. There is an(jther particular iu(n- 
dent on which light is shed — tlie threat of Major Craig to put to 
death Major Sam Ashe, his young brother, and some other Whigs 
who had been eajjtured by tlie marauding Tory bands. It seems that 
General Caswell liad allowed live men taken at Xew liivrr iu Ousluw 
County to be executrd at ICinston. Doubtless these men liad been 
guilt}' of murder and rapine', as was connuon with both bands of 
Tories and Whigs, for tlu^ bloody work done on botli sides in the Cape 
Fear section at that period has scldtnii l)efii e(pia]liMl iu eulighlencd 
times. j\Iajor Craig charged Caswidl with uiurdering these men, 
and lie tlirew ]\lajor Ashe and his comrades into irons, intending to 
deliver them over to the Tories that they might have ample revenge. 
]5ut Craig was a sol<lier, and thought twice about it, and brought tlic 
matter to the attention of CJoveruor IJurki-, ■who pnaiiptly advi-cd 
him lliat if he should ]>ut his threat in execution there would bo 
I'etaliatinn on some prisoners then iu tlie Governor's power. Tliis 
deterred Craig from extreme measures. 

The roll of lievolutionary pensioners gives additional interest to 
tliis volume; whih', the declarations maile liy the different apidieants, 
wiien seeking pensions, contain some account of the movement of 
the military forces during tiie war, aud throw no little liglit upon 
military afl'airs iu the struggle for independence. 

In the volume will be found, also, I'ousicK'raljh' new uuitter in 
regard to I'ryon's exjieditiou against the liegulalors. The receipt fi)r 
the ])aymeiit of thirty-six )iounds to the executioner of tlie six IJegii- 
latoi's hung is a niehiueholy uieuiorial_ of that ineideiit. l''i'om the 
list of those who owed (piil-reuls iu tlie .Mbeuiarle .section at the time 
when (jovernor Johnston eauie over in IT.'il, it appear^ that Mdge- 
combo Precinct was then (|iiite well selth'd. 

'Idle Journals of the Council of State, beginning immediately upon 
the institution of tlie Stale (loverumeut under llie Coustitiitiou, are 
also of unusual interest. What tlie. ]iali'iols of that trying period had 
to contend with is well summed up iu a iiie-isage by (iovernor ])\n'ke to 
the General As.senddy after four year^ had elapsed from the orgaiii- 
xation of tlie State Governiuent : "T iierctise the country ev(rywlier(.' 
uu])i'e|)ared for defence: without arms, ^\■itllout di-ci]iliue, wiihout 
arrangements; even the hal)its of civil law and obedience ti> laws 
changed into licentious contem])t of authority and a disorderly iudul-

g'ence of violent propensities. Industry is interaiittcd, agriculture 
nmcli decayed, and commerce, struggling feebly with almost insuper- 
able difficulties. The public money is unaccounted for, the taxes 
uncollected or unproductive, the individuals creditors of the public 
for the whole produce of their industry for years past, and the 
Treasury totally unable to nuike paymeut." Truly, those were "times 
that tried men's so>ds," and the strength of purpose with which the 
patriots persisted in their struggle for liberty anil self-goverriiiient 
entitles them to the halo of imperishable glory. 

The Constitution of the State of Franklin, and the correspondence 
relatiug to the establishment and the passing away of that C(Knmon- 
wealth within the limits of North Carolina will also be found of 
much interest. The editor regrets to observe that there is an unusual 
number of typographical errors in this volume; although some of 
these errors may have originated in the copying of the manuscrijits. 
The intolligcnt reader will, however, readily correct these errors.

i.r inserted in their room, viz: 

This Convention having fully deliberated on the constitution pro- 
posed for the future government of the United Stati's of America by 
the Federal Convention, lately held at Philadelphia, on the seven- 
leenth day of September last, and having taken into their serious and 
~<iienui consideration the present critical situation of America, which 
induces them to be of opinion, that though certain amendments to the 
siiid constitution may be wished for, yet that those amendments 
slioidd be proposed subsequent to the ratitication on the part of thi.^ 
State, and not previous to it; 'J'hey du therefore, on iiehalf of the 
Slate of North Carolina, and thc' good people thereof, and by virtue 
of liie authority to them delegated, ratify the said constitution on the 
jiurt of this State: And they do at the same time recommend, that 
as early as possible, the following amendments to the constitution 
uiuy be proposed for the consideration and adoption of tlie several 
states in the Union, in one of the modes ju'cscribed in the fifth article 
thereof. 

AMENDMENTS. 

I. Each State in the Union shall respectively retain every power, 
jurisdiction and right, which is not by this constitution delegated 
to the Congress of the United States, or to tJie departments (jf Gen- 
»Tal Government; nor shall the said Congress, or any department of 
tlie said government exercise any act of authority over any individual 
ill any of the said Stati's, but such as can be justified uiuler some 
jKiwer, particularly given in this (Constitution; hut tlie said Con- 
blitiition shall Iw considei'cd at all times a solemn instrument, de^ 
tilling the extent of their authority, and llic limits of which they 
ciiiinot rightfully in any instance exceed. 

II. There shall be one representative for every thirty thousand, 
," according to the enumeration of census, mentioned in the Consti- 



24 - STATE RECORDS. 



tution, until the whole numher of i-epn:s(?iitativi'S amount to two hun- 
dred ; after which that number shall be continued or increased as 
Congress shall direct, upon the principles fixed in the constitution, 
by apportioning the representatives of each State to some greater 
number of peo])le from time to time, as jjopulatinn increases. 

III. Each state, resjiectively, shall have the power to jirovide for 
organizing, arming and discipling its own militia, wheiis(jever Con- 
gress shall omit or neglect to provide for the same. The militia ahal' 
not l>e subject to martial law, except when in actual service in time 
of war, invasion, or rebellion; and when they are not in the actual 
service of the United States, they shall l>e subject only to such fines, 
penalties and punishments as shall bo directed or inflicted Ijy the 
laws of its own State. 

IV. The Congress shall not alter, modify, or interfere in the 
times, places or nnuiner of holding elections for Senators and Repre- 
sentatives, or either of them, except when the legislature of any 
State shall neglect, refuse or be disabled by invasion or rel>ellion, to 
prescribe the same. 

V. The laws ascertaining the compensation of Senators and rep- 
resentatives for their services, shall be postjioned in their opera- 
tion, until after the election of represt^ntatives, immediately succeed- 
ing the passing thereof; that cxcejjted, which shall first be passd on 
the subject. 

VI. Instead of the following words in the Hth section of the 
first article, viz: ''Nor shall vessels Ijound to, or from one State, be 
obliged to enter, clear or jiay duties in another." (The meaning of 
wiiich is, by many deemed not sulticiently explicit). It is proposed 
that the following shall bi; substituted : No vessel bound to one 
State shall be Ixiund to enli'r or [lay duties to which such vessel may 
be liable at any port of entry in any other state than that to which 
such vessel is bound ; Nor shall any vessel bound from one State be 
obliged to clear or j)ay duties to which such vessel may be, liable at 
any port of clearance, in any other state than that from which such 
vesael is bound." 

This motion made by J\lr. Iredell being objected lo, tin; cpiestion 
was put, "Will the Convenlion adopt this amendment or not ^" and 
it was negatived: Wheri'upon iJie yeas and nays were required 
by Mr. Iredell, and seconded by Mr. Steele, as follows:

Adjourned iintil Monday mornin;^' (J o'clock. 



Monday, August 4, 1788. 

Met according to adjournment. 

Mr. William Barry Grove, according to order, ])resented the fol- 
lowing protest, subscriLxHJ by the persons whose names are thereunto 
annexed, to-wit: 

Dissentient. — Because the establishment of a seat of government in 
a jdace unconnected with connnerce, and where there is at jiresent no 
town, will be attended with a heavy expence to the pe(jple, and the 
town when established never can rise above tlu; degree of a village: 
The experience of Virginia and Maryland have given a striking- 
proof of this in the towns of Williamsburg and Annapolis. 

Because the establishment of the seat of government at Fayetteville 
would have a great and instantaneous effect \ipon the decayed com- 
mei'ce of this coimtry, by holding out immediate advantage to those 
who are imployed in the culture of tobacco and other valuable articles 
of export, the princijial part of which is now exported fi'om Virginia 
and South Carolina. 

Because it should be the ])oliey fif this State to encourage a gTcat 
commercial town, at the iiead of the best navigatiim in the State; a 
situation which .seems intemled by natui'c to eommtind the |iroduce 
of the interior settlenu-nts. 

Because we conceive the ])laee fixed on is nut authorized by thci 
resolution of the General Assend>ly, under whose recommendation 
this convention met, as that resolutimi ex])ressly says, "the conven- 
tion shall fix on a particular ])lace ;" whereas by a resolution of the 
convention a latitude is given of twenty miles to a given spot, and the 
appointment or selection of the iilentieal spot now re\-erts to the Legis- 
lature, contrary to the spirit and lueiining of the const itutiun.

■ DECLARATIONS FOR PENSIONS. 



(From the applications for Pensions for service in the Revokition the following 
euijii-8 and extracts have been taken, as they throw liglit upon those eventful 
Uiiius. It would have taken too much space to copy and print them all and some 
of those which would doubtless have been most interesting have been lost from 
the files. — Ed. )

Frederick County, in the State of Yiruiiiia, whei'e he lived about 
vvfii years, and then removed to Rowan (Nmnty (now Wilkes), in 
Norlii Carolina which was' in the month of Sc]itember, 1770. Tn the 
iiioiiili of October, or November, 1775, he entered the service of the 
t'nileil States as a volunteer for six nmntlis in C'apt. Jesse Walton's 
Cniiiliajiy (-if minute men (it IxMug the first comi)any ever raised in' 
ihc county of Wilkes), of whieli company he was appointed first

nif;agcd in training- and exercising the men, after which they wei'e 
iliw-liargcd and returned home, where. ihcy ai'riv(<l a few days before

Capt, Walton ami liis wniiwiiy wore diseliar;2;cd and returned home, 
where they arrived the iDtli J\lareh, having been gone near two 
months. 

After their arrival at home ihey met twiee every week and con- 
tinued to train and exercise themselves until Iheir term of six months 
had expired. Not long after the expiration of his first term this 
deponent was chosen an I'li.sign in the comininv of militia command 
ed by Capt. Benj. Cleveland, and veiy suon afterwards they receiveii 
orders from Col. Armstrong to go against the Indians who were com- 
mitting great depredations upon i he frontier of the Western ]jart uf 
North Carolina. In this expedition they served about two weeks 
principally in scouring the frontier .settlements. Soon after their re- 
turn orders were received by Ca])tain Cleveland from Col. Armstrong 
to take his company and go in p\irriuil of Col. Koberls (a Tory Colo.), 
who had embodied a number of Tories on ihe North-west side of the 
Blue Kidge. They immcdiatidy set (Jut in jnirbuii of Col. Itoberts 
and continued to pursue him and his eumi)any without being ablfi 
to overtake them until tlii'V advancc'd considi'rably into the State ot 
Virginia, when they learjied that lloberts had disbanded his nu'ii and 
that they had dispersed. Upon n;ceiving this information they ri- ; 
turned home, having been g(jnc about three weeks. 

Early in the year 1778, Captain Benjamin Cleveland was ap- 
pointed a Lieutenant Colonel and tljis dc-ponent was appointed to 
succeed him as Captain of the company wliieli commission he held 
until the close of the war. in the latter part of the year 1771), a call 
was made for troo])s to march to the defence of Charleston. .V draft 
was made from th(> militia in Wilkes for the company ami a draft 
also made from the Captains (}f CJomjianies for a Captain to eomnumil 
that company. The lot fell ujion this de])onent and he acciu'dingly 
repaired with his company to ILuubliu's old store, where they ren- 
dezvoused on the 13th of January, 1780. As soon as they could or- '■ 
ganize and make the necessary [)re]iarations they nutrclicd dirt'ct to 
Charleston, S. C, where they joined the third regiment of North 
Carolina militia,-conuuanded by Col. .Andrew Hampton. .\fler join- 
ing the regiment they were stationed about two miles fi-om the city 
at the smoky cam])s wiicre they remaini'd a considerable time and until 
a report obtained currency that the T(jries intended to set fire to 
the town and thereby pnahle the British to eflfect a landing.

Upon hearing of this report Gen. l.ineoln ordered all the troops 
into the city where they remained niitil llie term uf service of tiii.s 
< (Ic'ponent and his men expired, when they wi're disi-liarged and re- 
turned home, where thoy arrived sumetinie in the month of Ajjril,

H month of April, to September, 1780, tiiis deponent, witli small detach- 
I iiu'iits, of the men nnder his command, served three short tours, the 
5 precise length of each not particularly I'ccidlected, one uf which was 
ngiiinst a body of Tories assendiled near the head of the Catawba 
river, another against Col. Bryan (a Tory (!(d.), who had embodied 
a hand of Tories in the Southern ]iai1. of the State, and the other 
ajL'ainst some Tories on the north-w(>st side of the Blue Ridge. In 
i these three tours this deponent believes he served about two months. 
\ In the month of September, 1780, information was received by Col. 
Ucnjamin (Meveland that Maj. Fergusun (if the British army was ad- 
viiin-ing from South (Jarolina with a large liody of Rji'itish and

were joined by Cid. Camjibidl with a ImkIv of ti-oops fi(jiii Virginia 
iiH also by t!ols. Sevier, Shelby', and Mc|)owell, with ti'oojjs from 
North Carolimi. Aft<;r a junction of llie I roups was formed, as most 
of them had horses, it was [)roposed iliat all lliosc who bail horses or 
Ciiuld ))rocure them should ad\a]icc iniiucdiatidy upon l'\-i-guson. 
^ 'i'liis ilepiiuent had a horse and was anxiou^ to proceed with the main

Carolina, under Capt. Thomas DonalRiugh, about the 25th of April, 
ITyi, in the First Regiment of Statr 'I'mops, commanded by Col. 
llenr^' Dickson, in Gen. Sumner's Lrigade, at Oi'ange Court House, 
in N(jrth Carolina, and was marched to Oxford ami from thence to 
the siege of Ninety-six in South Caroliua, where we joined the Con- 
tinental army under Gen. Ciccn. This was the Spring after the 
battle of Guilford Court House, fought jiy Gen'ls Gri^en and llorgan 
against Cornwallis. We were ordered on to Ninety-six to reinforce 
Gen. Green and at the siege of Ninety-six we lost over a hundred men 
and did not then take the ])lace. 'j'his was in the month of Miiy, a 
little after the middle of the month. After this Gen. Green marched 
his command, b.ith Coutinenial and Stiiie troops, t(j the high hills of 
Santi'c and the Dritish retired to the Eulaw Spi'ings and in the early 
part of the Fall we fought the battle of ihe luitaw Springs against 
Lord Uawdon. Gen. Green connnaiidcd in jierson, a hard battle, 
and we took upwards of a thousand jirisoners there. This battle was 
a little past the middle of September the same year after I enlisted 
or volunteered. This place is about forty miles above Charlestown 
where the British returned and we returned to the high hills of 
Santee again. When we got tlu^re Capt. Donahough, wIkj was nunie 
Major after the battle of the Eutaw S|jrings, commanded tlu; detacfi- 
ment that carried the jirisoners up to Sali^lmry, .\orih Candina, 
where the prisoners were put in charge of a detachment of militia 
who took them on, as I underst(jod, to N'irgiuia, and we were ordered 
back to join the nuiin army again. We vv(;nt on by Cheraw ( i)

and then uiir detachment was ordered on to a place called the round

! About this time tliere were orders for a few companies of volunteer 
i cavaliy to be raised for Nordi Carolina scouting service to keep under 
I the Tories that were constantly doing mischief and plundering the 
I Country. When we were marched away about, or on, the first of

I where Fayetteville now stands, or alwut the phu-e, we were under a 
i Major Allen from North Carolina. This enrollment was fcir twelve

I washed up in my jacket pocket and the other, iu the lapse of years 
I was lost, and I know not what become of it. The first tour my dis- 
■ charge was given l)y Col. Henry 1 )ick.-5(iii and the last by Maj. Allen 
; as before stated. 1 then returned home to Orange County, North

(E.xtract from the declaration for pension of William Armstrong 
iiiikIc in Cahlwell Co., Ky., May 20, ISD:}.) 

Tiiat he entered the sei-vice of the United States and served as 
herein stated; to-wit: 

During the Revolutionary War I lived in Lincoln County, State 
of North Carolina, and was a militia Cajitain of a company in said 
County when I first entered the sei-vicc of the United States, which 
was in the month of July in tlie year 1780, and the following are the 
oircumstanees : 

Just after the appointment of Gates to the command of the South- 
ern army, orders were ri'ceivcd by the loililia oilicers to hold a draft 
for men to serve in that anny for three months. Accordingly the 
draft was made and six were drafted out of my own company, as well 
as I remendjor. I was commissioned tiie Captain of the Company 
from Lincoln and commanded as such during the esj)edition. We 
rendezvoused near Charlotte anii my cnmpany was placed in Col. 
Alexander's regiment, and in the IJrigade commanded by Gen'l Grif- 
fith Rutherford ; one Wm. Rankin was Lieutenant in my company.

From Cliai'ldtte we iuar</liecl (l(j\vii the Y'adkiii river and thence across 
Black River to Ridgeley's ^filis ainl there eiicuiiiped for the night. 
But at about 12 at uight we received orders to hasten our march and 
join tlie main army as soon as possible. 'J'he line of march was im- 
mcdiateiv formed and we proceeded towards Camden. During the 
night our advance guards had some skirmishing with the enemy's 
guards, and sometime in the night we juined ihe main army. 

Alxnil the dawn of ilay tlie battle of Camden commenced and soon 
ended in the defeat of our army. Having juined the main army sc 
short a time before the battle couunenced 1 am not able to describe 
tiie (jrder in which Gales formed his men, but in regard to Ruther- 
foi'd's Brigade, I distinctly remember it was divided into platoons 
and on that day T had the command of a platoon instead of my com- 
pany, liy whose fault this battle was lust 1 know not, but one thing 
I (111 kniiw, it was not mine, for I know I dune jny duty. The blame 
was attributed to CJates, but whcliier he was nhnoxitais to the charge 
I \sill nut veiitiu'e to say. At any rate the loss was great and the 
fall ut' I )eKalb at the head of the C'unlinentals was an iri'ejjarable loss. 

The bravery of this officer and ihose under him, and the undaunted 
courage shown by them when there was none to support them, created 
a universal symiJathj' for their sufl'erings and no doubt served to 
increase the blame against Ctates. .Vs otiun as our terms of service 
were luu wo. were discharged, which I think was in the month of 
Octiilier fulhjwing, having fully served uut the three muntlis for which 
we were draftei,!. 'J"he success cd' the enemy at Camden gave the 

Tiu'ies mure eontidence and they became mure hold, mure daring, and 
mure niuui'rous. Assistetl by detaclieil jiarties of the British they 
marched through the country almost with impunity, committing every 
sort of crime. They established ])Osts in variims places and for a 
while seemed to have subjugated the cuuntry. VeL there was a few 
wIkj ke])t the field, and if it is nut Ixiasling to say so, I was one. 
Ahout this time I was re-connnissi(ine(l by the Governor of N. Caro- 
lina and appointed again a Ca])tain in the militia of the State. 
Tiider this commission 1 returned lu i.iiiculn euuiity tu i-aise a vulun- 
teer comj)any and to join Col. JJi.xon wbu had the cumnuind of a 
regiment of vulunteer militia. But on my return tu my old comjjany 
I found but eight men who were good and true, the rest had joined 
the Tories. Such was thi^ disaffection in tlntt country at that time. 
With this eight 1 took the field about the first of November, 1780,

and increased by adding to it sueli as were from Lincoln County 
tiiiil who had volunteered and joined Col. Dixon. This nuide my 
coiiiliany more res])eetable. Col. Dixcjn was stationed in Lincoln at 
ihe time I joined him whc'i'ci we remained for some time foi' tlui 
, |Hirposu of restraining detached pai'ties ni' the Jiritish and |(rotecting 
till) inhabitants fnjni them, for at this time Curnwallis was marching 
Ills tii'my through Lincoln County, Northward. We were all mounte(^ 
I iiit'ii and for a \vhile our duties were very sevcu'c. Cornwallis lay at 
f Kinusour's and then crossed tlie Catawlia at Beaty's ford and at 
[ Cowan's where Gen. Davidson was killed in defentling the ]iass. Our 
t regiment ke])t on tlii' Hanks of tlic enemy as mueii as jiossibK- and u\y 
1 strncled their march. We jjursued lliem in lliis manner as far a* 
Salisbury. Xear this pLice I was delaelied at the head of eight men 
III Sarvis' Mill (Rowan County), for ihe jnirpose of discovery, and 
(in arriving there we came suddenly- on 'I'J fool men and 1") di-agoon;« 
i)f tlie enemy. They had reached there bcfoi'c us and discovering 
our apiiroach lay in andiush and tired on us as we entered the ('reek, 
but luckily killed none. We turned to fire but at the moment diseov- 
. cred the dragoons advancing on u.> from their ambuscade. We re- 
treated across a contiguous old liehl with considt'rabh; haste. On 
arriving on the ojijiosile side we balled and, strange as it may seem, 
\\v were nol only not pursued, bnt ibe eneniy were reti'cating ihem- 
seives in haste, having thrown out their forage (for tliey wei-e forag-

to Col, Dixon for aitl, bul none came in lime to iln any good ami 
ilicy escajH'd — we were too few in niimber hi elFecl anything ourselves. 
On the next day we returned. This was somelime about the 1st

embodied in considerable niinil)er3 while the British anny was march- 
ing tliroiigh till,' country, (^n our return into that section of the 3 
State we found the Tories in such numbers that we were obliged to 1 
cr(jss (jver the Catawba into Alecklenlmrg County, for we wore too ' 
weak to opjjose liicm. However, we again returned in a short time 
and moved from place to place as most needed our protection. Thus 
nuitters continued until the Fall of that year (1781). For after the 
ca])tnre of Cornwallis at York in October of that year, the Tories in 
that quarter seemed disheartened and it was not longer necessary for 
us to keep constantly in the field. C'onseqnently Col. Dixon came 
to the C(jnclusion t(j disband his forces, at any rate for the present and 
nnlil they were wanted, and according discharged his troops some- 
time in the latter part of October, 1781, (I do not now remember 
the precise day — it is impossible). 

During my service nnder ( 'ol. Dixon, we were engaged in many 
enterprises and many circumstances took place \\hich I have not re- 
lated, and indeed my memory does not enable me to describe particu- 
larly all the circumstances that hajipened. On my return from Cam 
den 1 found Col. Dixon, engaged in raising a Regiment of volunteers 
for the defence of the country and I immediately joined him as be 
fore stated and went into my old company to raise my quota of men — 
indeed get all I })ossibly could, mid having \>eon commissioned l)y the 
Ciivernor of iS'orth Carolina Ca|itai]i nf the company from Lincoln 
in the ex])editi()n to Camden, and having been ]ire\'iously commission- 
ed Captain of a comjiany in Lincoln, as such officer I used every exer- 
ti(Ui III raise men for tin- dcFeiK-e of ihi- couiiti-y. I entered into this 
last service under Col. Dixon soineliuie in ihr- uioiilh of Novi-udicr, 
1780, about the first of that month, and continued in that service 
without a days intermission until alwut the last day of October follow- 
ing. 1 remember distinctly we werc' not discharged until a short linu 
after the battle at \orktown and surrender of Cornwallis. f will 
nunition that during the year 1781, while 1 was (uit on service, the

nearly all my property and among the rest they took five horses from 
me. *****

Wilson, in which (.;om])aiiy he served sometimes, and sometimes iu 
that of Ca])t. O'Neal "And was used to cduntei-act ihe scouting par- 
ties sent out by the British while on Dan Kiver, Va., and in Eoi^king- 
ham and Guilford Counties," hut does not recollect how long he was 
thus engaged, probably, however, he thinks, at least two months. 
In the latter jiart of June, 17S1, he v<duiiteered and marched under 
Capt. Ilol)ert Bell, with other ( 'miipanies from the neighboring Coun- 
ties, to join General Greene, at Camden, then over the Waleree to 
Fiitaw Springs and at that ])laee he was engaged in th(^ battle of 
Se|)tember 8th, 1781, wliicjj conimeucec] early in the morning and ' 
very (piiekly became general. Afler the battle he was marched with 
about ;i()0 ])risoners of till- enemy, to iinwan ('(junly, N. C. During 
the battle his Company was jilaei'd under the command of a French 
Colonel, named, he believed, J\Ialmedy. He was di.sehai'iied after 3 
months .service. His rank during his term of duty was as a ]irivate. 

He was l>orn in H'eland and brought when a child, by his parents to 
America and he settled in Cbe^lrr County, I'enn., where he lived 
until I77i!, then with his jiarents moved to N. C, and settled in 
Guilford County, M'here since he lias iieen living. In the reorganiza- 
tion of the Continental Army in 1778 and i) and a more gene-al 
one in the Fall of 1780 and early in 1781, Tlegimenls and Com- 
])anies consolidated which changed the officers in command, and i 
some became supernumaries.

(Petition filed in ;5d Aiulitor's Offiee.) 

To the Honoralile, the Senate and Ifonse of Ke[]resentatives of the 
United States in Congress assend)led — 

The petition of William Lee Davidson showetli to your Honorable 
Inidies that he is the son and heir of General William Davidson who 
was a soldier of the Revolutionary War and served his eounlry faith- 
fidly from the Iwginning of said war until he was killed at the battle 
of Cowan's Eord on the Catawba River, in the County of IMceklenburg 
ill the State of Nortli Carolina. 

"When the Revolution broke oiil on the ii-2(l of April, 1777, tho

V o„s to Ins your petitioners Father, W,u. Davidson had been pro- 
moted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the line. As the troops 
passed through North Carolina Colonel Davidson obtained a ^.^Z 

year. This saved h„n ironi the fate that befell Lineola at 
Charleston; i,,. when he approached Charleston, he found it so 
losely beleaguered by the British Anuy, that he was prevented from 
jonung his regnnent. When Lineoln surrendered, your petitioner's 
Father re urned to Mecklenburg and rendered important services in 
subduing the lories, who, encouraged by the success of the British 
became numerous, daring and dangerous. 

He raised a troop of volunteers and marched against them. At 
Colson's Mill he encountered a strong force of ToHes, and a sever 
engagement took place in which petitioner's Father was severel, 
wounded. A bal entered the umbilical region and passed through hi 
bod, near the kidneys. This had nearly been fatal. He wa's con- 
fined for_ two months with this wound. On his rec-overy he t<,ok the 
field having been promoted for his bravery to a brigadier general in 
the place of General Rutherford, taken prisoner at CJainden, S C He

in assembling the militia of his district t„ aid CJenl. Green (who had

of three hundred men, he took post at Cowan's Ford 

At day break on the 1st of February, 1781, the British Army 
under Cornwalhs entered the waters of Catawba (then swollen by 
heavy rains) at Cowan's For.l. The morning was dark and rain/ 
The light infantry under Col. II.ll entered first, followed by the 
grenadiers and the bat.alions. The pi..ket of General Davidson chal-

out the whole force of General Davidson, who kept up a galling fire 
from the bank. The guide of the British alarmed at he iirin-

enemy from the expected landing of the force, and Col. Hall led them 
directly across. Col. Hall was killed as he ascended the bank. Lord 
Cornwallis's horse was shot in the river and fell as he reached the 
bank; three privates killed, and thirty-six British wounded. 

Petitioner's father, General Davidson, in riding from the point 
wlicre he expected the enemy to the point where they landed, was 
Autt ; the ball passed through his heart and he fell dead from his 
borse. "Your ])etitioner further showeth to your Honorable bodies 
lliat in consideration of the gallant services of his Father in the 
defence of his country — the Congress of the United States, in 1781, 
passed the following resolution — "Resolved, That the Governor and 
Cmuicil of the State of North Carolina be desired to erect a monu-

five hundred dollars, to the memory of the late Brigadier General 
Davidson who commanded the militia of the District of Salisbury in 
llio State of North Carolina and was killed on the lirst of February 
lighting gallantly for the defense of the liberty and independence of 
these States." 

That jietitioner's Father entered the service of his Country at the 
eonnnencement of the Revolutionary War and continued in active 
service until his death at Cowan's Ford* — a period of more than five 
yearSj serving part of the time as Lieutenant-Colonel and part as Brig-

Mr. Evans made the following 
REPORT. 

[To accompany bill S. 512 ] 

The Committee on Revolutionary Claim.s, to whom iras referred the 

petition of William L. Davidtion, heir of General W illium Uand- 

soH; deeeased, haviiuj hud the same under conaide ration, report: 

That the liistoiy of the military .services of the father of the peti- 

ti<.ner is fully set forth in Wheeler's History of North Carolina, and 

in^ the Journals of CVjngress from 177.5 to 1781. He was a meinher 

cif the Meeklenhnrg' eonventic.n, which, i,, ihiy, 1775, made the first 

declaration of indej)endcncc whi.-li emanated from the American 

people. 

After the hattle of Lexinj^ton when it Ijceaine manifest that the 
<litficulties between the colonies and Great Britain were to be decided 
by the sword, the conventicm of North (Jarolina raised six battalions 
for the common defence, and tcnderiHl their services to (.'(jii-i^ss. Of 
the 4th battalion, Thomas I'olk was aiipointed Colonel, Jaines Thack- 
stoii lieutenant colonel, and AVilliam David.son major. Thi-se aji- 
pointments were made by the ( 'on-re.ss <,f the United'colonics, on the 
recommendation of the convention of North tJaroiina. on the 7th of 
May, 177(".. The North Carolina tro.ips were iiuuvhed to the Xorlli, 
under General Nash, to reinforce the ari.iy under the command <,f 
General Washington. 

In this arduous service he remained until November, 1779, when 






STATE RECORDS. 119 



llio North Carolina troojjs were ordered to reinforce General Lincoln 
ill Siiutli Carolina. In the meantime Major Davidson had been pro- 
iMotcd to the rank of lieutenant colonel. 

As the troops passed through North (Jarolina, he obtained leave of 
absence for a short time to visit bis family, whom be had not seen 
.■■iiice he left them to join the northern army. It is slated in the pe-' 
liliun, and ther(! is no reason to doTibt the fact, that when his furlough 
(■xjiired, he immediately repaired to Cbarlestoii to join his regiment; 
but when be arrived in the neighborhood, he fmiiid the city so closely 
U'leaguered that it was impossible for him to go in. 

When Charleston capitulated, in -May, 17S0, his regiment were 
iiiado prisoners of war, and he, being out of active employment, re- 
paired to Mechlenburgh, bis native county, and raised a volunteer 
corjts for the purpose of keeping in subjection the tories, who were 
inuiierous in that part of North Carolina and the adjoining parts of 
South Carolina. In this service he \vas actively engaged until after 
dates' defeat in August, 17S0. In this battle Ceneral Rutherford, 
who commanded the militia of the Salisbury division, was taken pris- 
oner, and his conuuand was conferred by the government of North 
Carolina upon Colonel Davidson, who thus became a brigadier of 
militia, retaining at the same time his rank in the coutiuentul army, 
ready to resume his command when bis regiment should be exchanged 
or again recruited. 

In January, 1781, whilst General Greene was retreating through 
North Carolina, pursued by a superior force of the enemy under Lord 
Cornwallis, it became of great importance to retard the march of the 
enemy as much as possible, and to enable the American general to 
cross the Yadkin before be could be overtaken. To this end Colonel 
Davidson, by the order of General Greene, posted his command, con- 
sisting of 300 militia, at Cowan's ford, on the Catawba river, which 
it was supposed was one of the passes by which the enemy would 
* attempt to cross that river. This conjecture proved to be correct. 
■ On the morning of the 1st of February, 1781, the enemy, in large 

I force, appeared on the opposite side of the river. Their passage was 
! resisted with great vigor aTid courage, and was effected at a heavy 
loss; but in the conilict the American commander was killed. In 
cciiisideration of bis gallant conduct, Congress, on the 20th day of 
, September, 1781, passed a resolution requesting the Governor and 
council of North Carulina to erect a monument, at the expense of the

LIEUT. COLONEL lIENliY DIXON. 

(In tlie Petition of Iloirs of Lt. Col. Henry Dixon.) 
Ilerndon Haralson, then of Haywood Co., Tenn., makes oath, May 
11, 1840, "tliat in the year 1781 when Gen. Greene retreated thro' 



United States, not exceeding in value $500, to the memory of the late 
General Davidson, who commanded the militia of tiu; district of Salis- 
hury, in the State of North Carolina, and was killed on the 1 Feb., 
1781, fighting gallantly for the defence of the liberty and inde- 
pendence of these States. 

Under these circunislances, the petitioner claims for himself, and 
the other children of Colonel Daviilson, the seven years' half-pay, to 
which they conceive themselves entitled nnder the resolution (jf Con- 
gress of the -iltli of August, 1780, which is in these words: "Be- 
soUtccl, That tlie resolution of the 15th day of Alay, 1778, granting 
half-pay for seven years to the oliicers of the army who should con- ■ 
tiiiue in the service to the end of the war, l>c extended to the widows 
of those olHcers who have died, or shall hereafter die in the service, 
to commence from the time of such ollicer's death." A subsequent 
part of the same resolution gives the allowance to the orphan children 
(it ihe deceased officer, in ease there bo no widow or she should after- 
wards marry. From the facts herein statetl, there is no d<jubt 
that, in conse(iuence of the death of General Davidson, his widow, if 
ho left one, and if none, his children, who were then oi-phans, were ' 
entitled to the seven years' half-pay." 

He was one of those who were entitled to the seven years' half-pay 
under the resolution of the 15th of May, 1778, and he was afterwards 
killed in battle acting under the orders of Major General Greene. 
His command of the militia, and bearing the commission of a major 
general of the militia, could not change the legality of the claim of 
his family, under the rest)lution of the :34th of August, 1780. 

The committee, therefore, report a bill to pay to the petitioner, W. 
L. Davidson, for himself and the other children of his father, the half- 
pay of a lieutenant colonel of infantry for seven 3'ears. They are not 
orphans now, but they were at the death of their father. If they did 
not receive it then, they are entitled now. Such has lx;en the uniform 
construction of the resolution, as appears from nuiny acts passed with- 
in the last tliirty years.

JOSEPH GRAHAM. 

In October, 1832, he was residing in Lincoln County, N. C, aged 
73 years and stated that he enlisted in May, 1778, under Capt. Gooden 
in the Fourth North Carolina Jvegiment commanded by Col. Archi- 
l)aKI Lyttle, a part of the time was orderly sergeant and the balance 
Quarter ^Master Sergeant, the term of his service to be months after 
arriving at the place of rendezvous at Lladensburg in Maryland. 
Tlicy assembled at Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, N. C, where 
! Iip then lived, from thence marched to near Virginia, receiving re- 
iTiiits from tiie other Ccninties. The field officers on this march were 
Colonel Wm. L. ]Javidson, Major William J*olk and Henry Dickson. 
('iil)t. Smith ]L\rris and others were all assembled in Caswell County 
ii? a place called Moore's Creek. At tiiis place received the news of 
tlif battle at ]\Ionniouth, N. J., (June 28th, 1778) and that the Erit- 
i.-ih had gone to -New York City, and as their services were not wanted 
at the North, the men became uneasy that the time of their service 
lind not commenced and it was uncertain when it would. A meeting 
Ii>ok place which with some difficulty was suppressed. Some officers 
broke their swords and some soldiers were crippled. "It was after- 
wards proposed to such of the soldiers as would accept, to take fur- 
iiiiighs of which Graham was one," and he went home to ^lecklen- 
hui'g some time in August. On the 5th November following he was 
called into the service under General Rutherford (Brigade of Mili- 
tia) for 5 months, in Col. Lyttle's Regiment At the "10-mile

discharged the whole duty the most of the time. During this service 
he was „, a skirmish with McGist (or McGirt) wh„ conunandc.d the

Infantry was twice detached under Count Pulaski, i„ ,me of which 
a -"tcmant Chevalier Dc.Vallier, (a Frenclanau) in a rencountre 
w.th a British piquet, received a mortal wound. Graham was in the 
l-attle ot Stono, June 20th, 1779, and discharged in Au-nist, 1779, at 
which time he was ill with bilious fever, from which be liad not fully 
recovered at the end of two months. The fever together with the re- 
col eetion of the hardships in a southern campaign along the sea coast, 
l.ad so depressed his spirits that Graham did n„t re-enter the service 
iinti May when the defeat of Colm.el Hntord (of Virginia by Col.

On falling in with Piles and the Tories, instead of Tarleton passing 
along in front of their Vnio drawn up, none of Lee's men knew their 
character, but Lee, as his men having so recently come to the soutli, 
did not know the distingiiislicd mark of the Tories, but when the 
militia came near and discovered the red strip of cloth in their hats, 
they made the first attack on them. Some of the blacksmith sworda 
broke, others bent, &c. Tarleton, who was in the vicinity, as soon as 
informed of the result started for Ilillsl>oro, tlie Americans imrsued 
abdut lialf way and without overtaking him turned to the left up the 
country. Tlie next day, with reinforcements, he attacked our piquet 
guard in the night in which engagement Majcn' Mieajah Lewis, a 
Continental officer, was killed, and the Americans compelled to retire; 
this was followed by various movements, wdiieh brought botli armies 
to the south of Ilaw River near Alamance Creek. On tlie 2nd of 
IMarch a detachment of 800 men, all militia, except Lee's L'/gion, 
advanced in three columns, under his command, Graham and Cum- 
I)any in front of the left with orders to support the left Ihuik. After 
passing through a farm near Clapp's Mills entering a coppice of woods i 
encountered a large party of the enemy drawn up in position, a 
smart tiring commenced, and after three or four rounds our lint 
gave way, the gi'ound was so hampered with tliick underbrush, and the 
course of the Tories on the kit flank, it was done witli difficulty, re- 
treated about one mile to the ford on liig Alamance, where Col. Otho 
Williams with the regulars under Jiis command and Washington's 
Cavalry, were drawn up to supjiort; the enemy did not pursue more 
than 500 yards. In the affair two were killed, 'd wounded and 2 taken 
jirisoners of Graham's Comjjany, in all 7. On the first of llarch tlie 
time and service for wliich the men had engaged was up and about , 
one-third of them would go home, the others were persuaded to stay ^ 
longer, being daily in expectation of a general action. 

The day after the battle Graliam was directed by Lee to take 25 ^ 
men to ascertain if the enemy were occupying the field and, if they 
had left, to follow the trail until he actually saw them which he did, 
on the Salisbury road witliin half a mile of their headquarters. He 
disi)atched a sergeant with six men to inform Lee, and Graham with 
the rest of his party moved after dark through the woods in an imsuc- 
cessful effort to capture two sentinels who fired at them, but as Gra- 
ham and his party proceeded a 1-2 mile up the main road met a patrol 
of cavalry, wliom they hailed, then discharged a volley in their faces,

Ifli's Mills on Keedy Fork under Colonel Washington, when (Jol. 

Wclteter with tiie elite of the British army f(.)r l:i miles jiassed so 

rioscdy as to compel Colonel Otho Williams, the commander, to fight 

long in expectation of a general action. Being disappointed with 

only heavy skirmishing, in which they had acted a jjrorninent part, 

bis men determined to return home. General Greene directed Graham 

logo with them in order to keep them in a compact body until they got 

through the disaflfected settlement on the I'a.'^t side of the ^'adkin 

Kiver, which they passed on the 14th of March, 17S1, and on the 

17th most of the company arrived home. Owing to the early death 

of General Davidson under whose orders he acted, he received no 

written commission, but Colonel Dickson gave him a written dis- 

F fharge. During this service he was in 8 battles or skinnishes and 

I lost four men killed, three ^vounded and two jirisoncrs.

Graham was afterwards delached by General Uullierford witl| 
three Companies, (jne of which was I)rag<jons, by Rrnnswick, over 
Lockwood's Folly and Wncanio Rivers, to a place called Seven Oaks, 
near S. 0. line, and was attacked about niidnight, by the noted 
Gainey of S. C., who wa^ then uiuler a truce with General Marion, 
but apjjcars he did not consider it binding in North ('arolina. The 
Cavalry charged defeating them and killed one. Graham had onci 
killed, 2 wounded and four horses killed. This service lasted over 
three months and was in four battles. Jle rccajiitulated his service

llic more western Counties arrivt'd midcr the; commaml of Alexander 
Martin of the Continental line. As the 'i'ories had been defeated a day 
or two before Ilenderson arrived at Moore's Creek bridge (February 
27lh, 1770) he did not remain longer than was necessary to nuike 
[irisoners of as nmny Tories as was possible, but returned, with others, 
lu tiioir respecti\'e homes — absent one or two months. In tlie latter 
part of summer or Fail of 1778 a lirigade of Militia was ordered to

General Lineoln ordered a corps of Liglit Infantry to be organized, , 
consisting- of one Company of Regulars and three of ililitia from the 
N. C. Brigade, with tlie command to Col. Lytic and ilajcir iSfelson. 
The Militia Companies were promptly filled frdmthe brigade by vol- 
unteers and Hcndersim was assigned as Lieutenant in ime of the Com- - 
panies, conmianded by Cajit. Janieison. In a few days it was ordered 
to Augusta on the S. C. side of the river, with all possible dispatch 
as the British were pushing up a detachment on the Georgia side of 
the river. This march of 100 miles was performed in four days, tak- 
ing possession of a Bhiff, on tiie S. C. side, called Fort ^Moore Bluff. 
Tlie following morning the enemy arrived and took possession of 
Augusta. In a week or two General Ashe with reinforcements also 
arrived from North Carolina and as Senim- otficci' assumed the com- 
mand. It was not long before the Britisli evacuated Augusta and -b 
quickly as possible the troops crossed the ri\'er in pursuit until inter- 
cepted by the dcstructioTi of the bridge at Brier Creek, which also 
jircvcnted the junction with a strong detachmeut under General 
Rutherford, for the want of boats. Before it cimld be effected the . 
enemy being reinforced from Savannah returned liy a circuitous route 
and surprised General Ashe with an ea.sy victory, ^la jor Tlcndersoii 
was not in the battle, for the day after the arrival of the army at 
the bridge, lie was selected and sent by General .Ashe to Pnrysbnrg, 
General Lincoln's Headquarters, with a verlial c(jinniunication, :is 
to the wants and condition of his army. The intcrmediatr country 
being so infested by Tories that a communication in writing was un- 
safe and impolitic. The battle of Brier Creek was March 3rd, 1779. 
The army retreated to General Rutherf(jrd's Station, the Twin Sisters 
Ferry, and remained in a great measure inactive until tlu^ expiration 
of its terra of service alwut the last of April. "Henderson was ap- 
pointed Paymaster of Colonel Sanders' (or Landis) regiment in 
which he was an officer as aforesaid." 

His third and last tour of duty was in 17(>1. In consecpience of 
Lord Cornwallis entering the State of N. C. in ]>ursuit of the pri.son-

Tlie regiment did not join General Greene until tW(] days after the

the regiment reimiined until their service ex|)ired. The only skir- 
mish the regiment had with (he enemy was at Ramsay's ilills wdieu 
a i)arty of horse attacked, as the regiment made a charge on a piclvct 
guard not man}' yards from the qmirters of Lord Coruwallis. Had 
it not been from tlie circumstance that ihe guard was surrounded by 
u strong fence that the horse could not break o\'er the whole ground, 
u Captain would have been sabered. As it was it resulted in killing

Drake). The hat tliat fell fi-oin liis licail wlicii woumlcd was taken 
possession of by his brother Jo. Hester, who was present at the time. 
His brother John was alsu one of the party. Benjamin Heater 
states that DeGlobaek, \\'ho was with Taylor in the attack on the 
pickets of the enemy, had no eonimissi(ju at that lime, nor did he 
receive it until afterwards near Wilmington, as his expression at the 
time of receiving it was "Dam 'cm, T will fight them to the very hell." 
The 3 prisoners taken in that attack were wounded by thcx sword of 
Benjamin Hester. The two first were sentries at their post. Ou 
their retreat he captured the third who was sheltered behind a tree 
and he drove him along lK3fore him until he came up with the rest of 
the Company from whom he had been partially separated. DeGlo- 
baek immediately ordered him to kill the Hessian, which was not done 
although somewhat maltreated. He was in the ])ursuit of Cfirnwallia 
to Wilmington, N. C. 



WILLIAM HUNT. 

William Hunt, a witness, of Granville County, in Deceml>er, 1832, i 
stated that in August, 1780, a regiment of mounted Volunteers was 
mustered into the service in Oxford, Granville County, N. C, com- -j 
manded by Col. Phil. Taylor of which he (Hunt) was ilajor, whioh 
marched through Ilillsboro to Salisbury, where was embodied another 
regiment of Volunteers imder Col. Davie who took the command in 
chief of both regiments, from thence going to Charlotte, but before 
reaching the latter place, a detacliiiieut of the main body in advaTice 
had an engagement with the; rear of tint British Army, in which a son 
of General Locke was killed. The command had uo ])articular desti- 
nation but to follow Cornwallis, so as to protect the country from the 
ravages of the enemy and to harass his army. They were for short ' 
periods at 6 Mile Creek, 12 ]\Iile Creek and at Waxhaw Creek. When 
Cornwallis crossed the Catawba River they returned to a place or set- 
tlement called Providence, where the}- remained until relieved by 
General Smallwood. Their term of service was for three months but 
the General in connnand refused their discharge by reason of the 
unprotected situation of the country until one month latc-r, when 
relieved by General Snuillwood. John Taylor, Sr., was in the regi- 
ment, of which Hunt had in part tho conunand, but he was employed 
occasionally in tho Commissary Departujent,

At Brier Creek, the enemy set tire to tiie bridge and while the Whigs

Two Sisters, about four or five miles from Brier Creek. Tlie de-

joined Gen. Lincoln and the main army. Another time the B. anny f 
were marcliing near the S. river in Ca. Both armies seemed for some 
time watching each other on (jpposilo sides of the S. river. CapL W. 
was ordered from the main army and jjosted on a lagoon running into 
the river between Tuliber's ferry and the Two Sisliirs' Ferry, and I 
was one of the guard sent with him. During the winter we had a 
skirmish with the 11, who were a.seending the Rivi'r in boats near a 
place called the White House, wlii're our commissary stores were de- 
jiosited; thence by a forced march we went up the river to reinforce

reached the Ferry on Savannah ri\ir otf wh. Livu. Ashe was en- 
camped and heard the firing (jf the Guns and a jiart of the army had

March, 1779, when we were dischargcul, from whence, however, we 
were marched to our Co. off back to our homes in Rowan Co. — dis-

mons was ordered over the Cape !Fear River, and marched on the N. 
E. river, which we swam on account of the B. having burnt the end 
of the Bridge, and marched into Wilmington, where we remained a 
few days, and then .we marched down Cape Fear to a place called the 
.Sounds, watching the B. vessels, which lay in the river. Here we 
ri'iiiained until our three mo's had expired and were discharged and 
went home. 

This declarant further states, that during the years 1780 and 1781, 
lie served seven tours as a minute ui;in, which averaged at the least 
10 or 12 days each tour, against the Tories, sometimes called out by 
the Colonels, sometimes by tli_e Captains. These tours were in Ro- 
wan and the adjoining Cos. I was two of the afsd tours under 
Col. Locke and Col. Brandon, and marched as far as Broad River, 
where Col. McDowell was encamped. 1 was on one (jf these tours 
with Gen. Wm. Lee Davidson and \vc had a skirmish with CVirnwallis' 
army at Cowan's Ford on the Catawba, and Gen. D. was killed at this 
place altout the 1st day of Feb., 1781, as well as this respondent now 
recollects. This declarant served several other minute tours, which 
he does not enumerate and claim pay for, but states that in the tours 
and campaigns before and herein specified he served faitlifully 
fourteen months and upwards for which he asks for pay. 

The applet, states that he was born in York Co., Penn., in the yr. 
1760, and removed to settle in Rowan Co., where he resided dur- 
ing the Rev. war. About the year 1824 removed to present res. in 
Daviess Co. Ky., was a volunteer in all the tours performed. 



WILLIAM LENOIR. 



In May 1833 he was residing in Wilkes County, N. C, and states 
be was born May 8th, 1751, in Brunswick County, Va., and lived, 
during his service in the war of the Revolution, in Surry (now 
Wilkes) County and he has resided there since. He was a volunteer 
in the service and that his commission as Ueutenant was sigiied by 
Governor Caswell, as he Udii'vcs, but by wlKmi his couunission aa 
Captain was signed he cannot say, as Ixith arc lost. After the said 
war he was promoted to higher rank in the Militia and gave no at- 
& ;) tention to the preservation of his former commission. 



136 STATE RECORDS. 



In the year 1770 a iXHiuisirRni was made by the government, to / 
raise a certain numlwr ef Militia, as minute men, and lie volunteered ' 
as a private (although he was hieutenaut in the Militia (.'onipany of 
Capt. Joseph Ilerndon) under Cai>t. Jesse. Walton, which was soon 
oi'dcred to the eastern or lower i)art of N. C. to snjtpress an insnrrec- • 
tion of the Scotch Tories. After he had proceeded about fifty miles , 
assisted in the cajituii' of ihe Tory, Ccdoiiel Gidecm Wright, wliosd 
house was surrounded in llu' night, and conveyed him to the little 
town of liichmond, whei'e he was dispdsed iit' in some manner not noW 
recollected. After this evi'iit J,enoir was taken sick on the road ren- 
dering him unable to travel, and (Jajit. Walton tliscliarged him. IIq 
nuule his way home with nuie-h ditlieulty. The calls for IMilitia fronl 
Surry (\ninty to supjiress insun-ection were rrjicated in cpiiek suc- 
cession and as soon as he was able to travel he volunteered as a Lieu- 
t<'nantof Militia Co. to which he belonged, connnanded by Capt. Hem- 
don, which marched to Shallow Ford on the "I'adkin, distant GO or 70 
miles, fj-om the place of rendezvous, Aviien orders were received tfl 
return liome. A very short tinie afler the (Jompany was ordered to 
the same point of destination as liet'ore ami after marching the same 
distance, tliey were again directed to retnrii home. In these two 
ex])editious Lenoir was absent live weeks. 

As Surry was a fi'ontier County the inhabitants were much an- 
noyed and alarmed by the freqnent depredations of the Indians, it 
was necessary for the public safety and security that active measures -: 
sh(mld be adopted to en'ect that object and Lenoir was selected, by 
the Colontd of the Count}-, to raise a Com|)any of ilangers to patrol 
the frontier settlement and [irolecl them from the incni'si(Uis of the 
Indians. In obeilienee to tliis order he oiganized a L^)mpany which 
was stationed at a convenient jjoiut on the headquarters of the Yad- 
kin River, from wdience they ranged the country on the Blue Ridge 
for a considerable distance as well as west of it, Ixitween the water 
of the Yadkin and New River, the inhabitants of wliich localities, 
fi-om dejircdatious and ihe great danger of their ex[)osnre, were eom- 
l)elled to abandon their homes to seek security in llui interior settle- 
ments. In tliis service, he believes, he was engaged as (^^aptain of the 
CompaJiy for 6 weeks oi- upwards in the si\uiiuer id' 177li. 

In Augiist 177G he volunteered as Lientenant with Capt. Benja-

position under Capt. Cleveland, who had a very largo Company that 
n'(Hiirod two Lieutenants, of which he was the first. He set out ort 
the march iinder Colcjnel Martin Armstrong, the Colonel of tlie 
Coimty, direct to the Pleasant Garden, in the County of Buike, where 
tliey joined General Griffith' Rntherfcjrd tn make the necessary or- 
pniiizations and other arrangements. l''r(iiii thence they went to tiie 
("lienjkee Nation, the towns of which were generally abandoned, ex- 
cept by straggling Indians, women and children. Capt. (ylcvoland 
was statione<l witli a few men at the middle towns, while Lenoir was 
appointed to the command of the remaindi.'r of the Comjiany, and 
marched, under Colonel Armstrung, to the; Iliawassee towns, which 
they destroyed and killing some Indians. The S. C. ]\lilitia was to 
have met General Rutherford at the Middle Towns, but uiMin his ar- 
rival no intelligence could be obtained from them and lu^ set out 
for the Iliawassee towns as before stated. After the departure of 
General Rutherford from the ]\liddlo towns, the S. (J. trooj)S arrived 
there and immediately started for Iliawassri^ ^vith expectation of 
jdining him at that ])laci', but taking a <liirereut ro\itc llicy were 
attacked on the way by a Jjarty of Indians wiio had formed an am- 
buscade, but by tin; skilful and prudent cunduct, of their oiiicers they 
were dislodged with a consiih'rable muid)er killed whom it is l>e- 
licved they carried oil'. 'J'lie S. C troojis lost about 15 men who were 
buried in a swamp and upon whom they constructed a pole causeway, 
over which the Militia maix-hed as they returned from the Iliawassee 
to the i\riddle tuwns. Lenoir sei'Vcd ■_'() days as Captain nw this (jc- 
easion. After lia\'ing destmycil the Indian towns, with all their 
stock, corn, and ntlier pro])erty that could be found, ttu; troops re- 
turned to N. C. and their respective homes. Although but few were 
killed in this expedition, yet from the fatignie, exposure and privation, 
a great number died after they arrived home ''much of which Lenoii' 
suffered." He believed he served 70 days as Lieutenant, making with 
the twenty days as Cajitain, three months. After his return home he 
was ai)])ointed Ca])tain (if the Com])any in the Dishiet where he re- 
sided, which rank he h(dd until ibe (dose of tbc war. In 1777 Surry 
County was divideil by an Act id' the Legisbiture and Lenoir M'as 
included in that ])(jrtion which is now WilKc~ County, but hi.~ Com- 
]iany District was the same. Sli(U'tly after the division he was or- 
dered by Colonel Benjamin Cleveland who was Colonel of the County,

to march liis Company down Hunting Creek to dctoct some outlying 
Tories and other susiiieious characters. He was unsuccessfully em- : 
ployed for some weeks in the Spring of 1778. In the Fall of 177S 
he, with his Company, accompanied Colonel (.'leveland over the Elue 
Ridge and down New River to Virginia to detect and suhduc some 
Toric.^ who infested that section of the country and captured sou.e of 
tlieni and thus after restoring trancjnilitj^ and ajuiari'nt security to 
the settlements, in'crosscd tlie mountains for their lionies. The 
Toi'ies taken, after an examination, were permitted to go at large by 
l)roniising future loyalty to the cause of independence. In some in- ■ 
stances Colonel Cleveland administered the oath (if allegiance. He 
was gone about 26 days. He was again ordered out with his Company i 
to march across Brushy ilountain together with other troops under 
Colonel Cleveland, to subdue some Tories on Cowe's Creek and it? 
waters, who kept that neighborhood in a state of alarm. A Tory bv 
the name of Williams was ca]itured, from wlmm they endeavored to 
obtain information relative to susi)ccted persons, but he refused to 
give any until Col. Cleveland adopted the expedient of hanging him 
to the limb of a tree, or a bent down sapling, which, liow(>ver, tlid not 
produce the desired effect. This was repeated a second time with 
more severity, then only to give encouragement to the Whigs and 
alarm to the Tories. The result of the exjiedition was to restore a 
tolerable state of security in that jjart of the country. Ho was ab- 
sent 20 days. 

In May or June 1779 information was received that the Tory 
Captain Whitson with a Company was coniinitting great depredations 
on the waters of the Catawba, and Lenoir was ordered with hia 
Company and some others to march under Col. Cleveland up the Yad- 
kin River, and across the Catawba, in quest of Wliitson. On the 
march down the Catawba, Coh)nel Larkin Cleveland, a brotlier of 
Colonel Benjamin, was badly wounded by a shot from a high cliti 
of rocks, supposed from a Tory, who nnide his escape. Ca])t. Lenoir, 
with a detachment of forty men, well mounted, was ordered to jtatrol 
the country between the Catawba River and the South Fork after 
Wliitson, which they did all night witliout success. On tlii>ir re 
t\irn Colonel Cleveland returned home, after an absence of about 
one month. A short time after this last service Colonel Cleveland 
received (late in the afternoon) intelligence that the Tories were 
embodying, towards the head of tho Yadkin, whereupon he repaired

iminediatoly to Wilkes C. II., distant fourteen miles from his resi- 
dence, where Lenoir with what men he einikl collect immediately 
jdinod in and by their united exertion succeeded in raising alxmt 200 
iiH'U, and at daybreak on the following morning had marched to the 
[dace where the Tories were said to be, a distance estimated at 21 
iiiiies, but the Tories had tied with great precijiitatiou towards the 
fciiutli. They promptly pursued them with all possible speed as far 
as hincolnton, but did not arrive until after ihe celebrated battle at 
Kiinisour's Mills, in which the Tories were triumphantly defeated 
(June 20th, 1780). Upon hearing of this event they ri'turued home. 
al«cut about one month. 

In August or September 17S0 he was ordered by Colonel Cleveland 
to inarch with his Company soutliwardly against the British and 
Tories wlio were harassing the i)eople to great extremities in Burke 
(!oimty, and Colonel Cleveland receiving information of the encamp- 
ment of about 100 Tories at Little John's Meeting House, a few 
miles in advance of his troops, directed him to select 25 men, well 
iiioimted, to ap])roach the Tory canij) until they tli'ed uiion him, with 
strict injunction to retreat without returning the lire, in order to 
lead them into ambuscade, which he, Colonel Cleveland, would form 
for that ])iirpose. This arrangement was countermanded by an ex- 
press M'hich was received before the Tory Camp was reached, and 
all the men to return except five, to be selected by Lenoir, with whom 
lie was to proceed to execute the original arrangement, but he found 
the camp abandoned. They, however, advanced considerably farther 
into Burke ('ounty, where they joined a regiment fi'om Virginia 
under Colonel Campbell and some Militia from the Northwestern 
side of the Bhie Ridge under Colonels Sevier and Shelby, together 
with the Militia of Burke Ccninty under Ccd. Charles McDowell. 
With these reinforcements the march was continued soutliwardly 
until reaching Rutherford County, when they were informed of the 
j)rogress and advance of a larg<' Injdy of liiitibh and Tories, com- 
manded by Colonel Fcrgus(jn. Ujioii this iutcdligence orders were 
immediately given for every man that had a hoi'se, or could j)rocur(« 
a suitable one, to be ready to march at suni'isc llui next morning to

taflinicnt. They accordingly tuok up the lino of nuirch at the ap- 
pointed time (leaving behind all those who had been unable to pro- 
cure horses) and on the way were joined by some militia from South 
Carolina under the conmiand of Colonel Williams, which augmented 
their munber to about 700, according to the best calculation which he ' 
(Lenoir) could make {the fddtmcii wlm were left beliind auKMinting ti) 
about 1500). They contiiuied ibeii' niarcli all day that day and all 
night, it being very dark and rainy, and on the next day (Ix'ing the 
"til October 1780) attacked Cnhjuel Fergu.?on on King's Mountain, 
near the line Ixjtween North ajid South Carolina, and after a hot 
engagement, which lasted about three-cpiarters of an hour, achieved 
the total defeat of Colonel Ferguson and his whole anuy, every man 
of whom was in cam]) at the cdUimeneement (if the action, V)eing 
either killed or taken. Tiie killed <in the side of the enemy being 
estimated at 250 and on the side of the Whigs at IJ'J. The remaindci' 
of the army amounting to alxiiit U'M, according to tlie best I'Stiaiate 
which could be made fmm the jiapcrs df the eummander, were de- 
tained as prisoners of war. In this action, he (Lenoir) received two 
wounds from bullets, one in his side and the other in his arm and a 
third b\illet passed through his liair above where it was tied. 

The next day the American army started on their return with the 
prisoners (of whom as counted by Capt. Lenoir, 725 were embodied 
men) who, exclusive of officers, wounded, sick, etc., were comjielled 
to cany the gams that had been taken, many taking two gams each 
and proceeded on until tiu'y met with the footmen who had been left 
behind. Together they marclied to and halted in Rutherford Ccmnty, 
where a court martial, composed of fieUl utHeers, .selected about 32 of 
the most obnoxious of the Tories who had been taken, and ordered 
them ti) l>e hung. After executing three at a time until nine were 
executed, the remainder were resjjited. The army then left Ruther- 
ford Count}' with the prisoners for the J\loravian towns in Stokes 
County, where they were stationed a considerable time guarding them, 
until relieved by other troops, tlu'u Capt. Lenoir with his Compimy 
returned home. Absent three months. 

About the time, but Ijefore, Lord Cornwallis arrived at Salisbury 
from S. C, Capt. Lenoir, with his Coiiipaiiy vobintci red and also six 
other Captains from Wilkes County with llieii- ( 'oiupnniea, nuirched 
to join Gien. Greene, as they expected, at Salislmry. On the way, 
there being no Field Officers with the troops, a dispute arose be-

tweeii Lenoir and Ciii)t. Bonjaniin llerndoii respecting their seniority, 
or who was entitled to assume the command, and being nnable to de- 
Icnnine it themselves, agreed to leave it to the soldiers to make choice 
of a connnandor for that tour, when all but six followed Leimir, and 
he assumed conuuand accordingly. IJcfore n-aching Salisbuiy ho was 
iiifdnned Gen. Greene had .nnirclu-d toward Virginia, and (^n■nwallis 
was in or near Salisbury and he changed his cnursc towai'ds Salcni, 
crossing the Yadkin at Enoch's Ferry. On the way he succeeded iiy 
etratagein in retaking three Jiritish oiKcers, who had been cai>tured by 
General Morgan at the battle of the Cowjiens, but had made lheii> 
escape from the guard. Several outlying Tories were also taken who 
were in the Company of the Rritisii officers. In pursuing his nnireh 
tliey campjed all nit;ht near the old Moravian town, where he learned 
that the British Army was then in that place. Not knowing where 
to find Gen. Greene he turned his course up the country to eti'ect a 
junction with General Pickens, which took place near j\litcbell's 
River in Surry County. Selecting alxuil forty mounted infantry be 
joined him and leaving the renuiinder of bis tr<iops which were under 
his conuuand, under the conuuand of ('apt. llcrndoii, imniediatcd^ 
set out with General Pickens towards llilL-^lMiro, at which place Corn- 
wallis was. Gen. Pickens having understood that Tarletou with bis* 
dragoons and infantry had cros.>;e(l Haw River, set off immediately 
in pursuit, after being joined by Colonel Lee with his cavalry. They 
crossed Haw River at Batler's Ford, but before (jvertaking Tarletou, 
fell in with a Iwdy of Tories under Doctor I'yles, a Tory Colonel, 
with whom they immediately engaged and literally cut them to pieces, 
some, however, made their esca])e and some wvrc taken pi'isoiiers. 
When the conflict first comnienccd it was believed thai they were :> 
part of Col. Tarleton's infantry, but they were not. Lenoir esciijied 
without a wound himself, but had his hor.se wounded and bis sword 
broken. General Pickens learning that Tarletou was encampctl at 
Colo. O'Neil's Mill detached Capt. I.cnoir with a few men to recon- 
noitre his camp, by which means he learned that Tarleton had de 
camped about midnight going on the roail t(jwards Ilillsboro. Gen 
eral Pickens being ap])riscd of this movement, started forthwith in 
pursuit, but finding that be could not be ovciiakeii k'fore arriving at 
Ilillsboro, it was abandoned ami be turned his course u]> ihe' north side

At this time Lenoir being Clerk of the Court uf Pleas and Quarter 
Sessions for Wilkes County, and the session of the C'ourl coming on in 
a few days, it was necessary for him to return home. He accoriliugly

JAMES MARTIK 

In May, 1774, I moved from the State of New Jersey to Guilford 
County on Dan River and on the iir^nd day of Ajiril, 1774, T was ap- 
|N)iiited Colonel Commandant of the Guilfoid Ivr'gimcut (jf ililitia by 
Samuel Johnson, President in Congress, then selling, and afterwards 
made Governor of this State, and soon nflci', in the year 1775, there 
was an insurrection of the Scotch Tories in and about Fayettevillc. 
I was ordered by my brother, Alexander ^larliii, who was appointed 
Colonel of the Second legndar Picgiment, to raise the Guilfoi'd ^lilitia 
and, as ordered by C(jngrc.ss then selling, march them to Fayette in 
order to suppress them. ] accordingly marched to Fayette where; 
said Colonel A. Martin was placcci having been made Colonel of Ihe 
Second Regiment in the regular service of the I'nited Stales; but

tempted to cross said brid-e and the rest took tu fli-ht and said Colonel 
Martin and myself took most of tJieir head men and imprisoned them 
and then I was ordered home with my regiment. The time that I 
spent in raising the men until T n.tnrne<l lunno was alxnit two nioutlis 
as near as I can reeolloet for 1 ke].t nu written journal. 

About the middle of June, 177(1, soon after the above campaign, 
I was called ujwn and commanded by General Ruth.>rford of Rowan 
to raise as many of the Gaiilford iniitia as I could muster and to 
march them to join him at the Catawba river and to march thence to _ 
the Cherokee towns of the Indians in order to destroy them. Accord- i 
ingly I marched with about 400 Jililitiamen and joined the General 
as he ordered. Lieut. Col.^nel John Paisley assisted me to raise the 
men and marched with us and thence we marched to the Turkey Cove 
at the foot of the Blue Ridge and then crossed ovei' it to Swananoa, 
thence to Pigeon river, thence to French Road river and thence to 
Tennessee river where we came to some of their towns which v;e 
burned and cut down their corn moving from one toAvn as we destrnyoil 
it and marched to another. Our .Nnnmissnry had about ,3,000 Iwves 
and about as many pack horses loaded Avith sacks of flour and where 
we encamped one night the beeves and i.ack horses destroyed the 
whole of it to the very stumps and destroyed the grass to the bare 
ground. 

General Rutherford took the pick of the Ijfltter half of the army and 
went to the over hills towns as they were called and left me with the 
remainder of the troops to guard the- provisions until he came back. 
ITe was gone ab<jut two or three weeks before he returned but had no 
skirmishes with the Indians and I hdieve saw none and destroyed 
some of their towns as he reported. While he was gone the Southern 
Army of Militia, on the same intentions we had, marched through onr 
camp and fell into an ambuscade the Indians had made about a mile 
and a half from our camp and had a smart .skirmish with them. I 
heard their guns firing very jilain and their commander soit to me for 
assistance and in the meantime I sent a Cdonel Cleveland « itb about 
150 men for his assistance, but before Cleveland g,,t to them they had 
routed the Indians and killed alx.ut ten ,,r twelve ,,f them and they 
lost about as many of their militiamen. I had sent out scouts every 
day to reconnoitre the country but they never ha].].ened to fall into 
their ambuscade. After destroying all their towns and com we took 
our march for home by ovder§ from onr General. A few of the

Tories in our Cininty could not be less than six weeks off and on and 
I returned home to Dan river, where I then liveil. This is from recol-

In 1781, alwut the first of Januai-y or the last of December, 1780, 
I was ordered and commanded by General Greene to raise and call

Caswell Connty and thence to purt of Gnilford, nianenvering about * 
nntil he conkl collect all the luiliiia of the different counties of the ^

and inarched •\\illi General Greene to the high Rock Ford on Haw 
river and encainji tliere on iho east side of it. 'I'iie Bi-itish were 
nianenvering on the west side of the county and General Greene after 
lialting there abfjut tiiree works thought he had collected all the forces 
from Virginia and the lower counties of the State and resolved to 
move towards the British to give them battle as ho did. He came to 
Gnilford old Conrt Tlouse where he made a halt and hearing that tlie 
British were moving towards him lu' drew n]> his men in three lincj 
about 100 yards liehind each other and waited the advance of the 
British. I was posted in the front line with scarce a com])lete Cap 
tain's company commandi'd by Ca]itain Forbis, a iirave nndauntcd 
fellow. We Avere posted bchiml a fence and I lobl the men to sit 
down until the British who were advancing came near enough to 
shoot. When they came in alK)nt 200 yards I saw a British officer -j 
with a drawn sword driving uj) his men. T asked Capt. Forbis if he 
conld take him down, lie said he c(juld tor he bad a got)d rifle and 
asked me if he should shoot tlien. T told him to let hiui in TiO yards 
and then take him down which he tliil. ft \vas a Captain of the ^ 
British army aud at that instant (Jeiieral Greene sent his Aid-de-camp 
for me to go to bim an<l T wcnl and asked iiim his commands. He told 
me as the battle hail begun and as 1 bad not a complete regiment he 
wished me to go with Nfajor lliintei' to the ('"url House in c-as(; (if

was marching them to tlie battle ground when 1 met (nmeral Stephens

I asked if the retreat \vasby General Greene's orders and he told me 
it was. T then retreated with iiim and onlered the men to repair 
to Troublesome iron works to refit as General Greene had ordered me, 
which we olwyed. The British then louk possession of the Court 
House and after a few days lliey moved up towards Wilmington.

1 to join liim again. This was in 1781. The time I spent then from 
I Hie time I received orders was about two months. 
i' In 1778 or 1779, I forget which, a party of Tories commanded V)y 
f llnir leader one Bryan on the Yadkin river rose in a body in Surry 
: County and started to join the Eritisii at Wihnington and being in- 
formed of it by express I ordered out C'aptain Gihispie with liis light 
P. kfirie company and I went with them got uii their track, pursued them 
IS far as Uwharrie Creek and found they had got out of our ri;ach, 
returned back again. The time we si)ent then until wo returned home 
• lis about six weeks, that is one month and lifteen days. 
*' We had then some relaxation till the year 17S1 of better than two 
Oionths when about the iirst of July I was ordered by General Ruther- 
fonl of Rowan County to raise a jiart of my reginieut and to join him 
nn his way to Wilmington to ti'y to dishidgc a Hrilish j\lajoi- Craig 
Itationcd there. 1 raised about L'OO militia njcn and inaiThed and 
jiiiiied him at the Raft swamp and hearing a nundier of Tories had 
Irtkcn refuge in it General Rutherford took about one-half of the 
may and myself the other and hi' enlo'cd the north end of it and I 
tliP south end. We made our way with much ditHculty through bogs 
and morasses and some of the men and horscmeu got mired l>ut got 
out again. But we found no Tories (jr any boily else save several 
i-«nips which we sup]josed had been made by them. Thence wo pro- 
truded towards Wilmington but halted at a small stockade Fort Fos- 
lor ( ?) about 20 miles from Wilmington off the South East branch of 
Cape Fear river near Frederick Jones's on the south side of the river 
i near a bridge over it and our army encamped on the north side and 
while we contemjilatcd to storm ihn said Fort we were; saved the 
trouble and danger without fighting by their vacating it which wo 
fU|)[)osed was oi'dered by their .Major (,'i'aig j)osted at Wilniingtiui. 
Al this time we heard of the cai^turi.' of the Hi'itish Genei'al Cornwailis 
being taken prisoner by Genei'al Washington at \'orkt(]wn near the 
mouth of James river. We nnirchetl then to the town of Wilmington 
which we found was vacated by the British ]\[ajor t.'raig and sup- 
|Mjscd it was by the orders of his Jjritish General (1 think his name 
was Clinton) to leave the State and como to him iuid W(; thotight it 
very good luck that by their vacating Ijir town we were released from 
the danger of fighting. So we wert' (jrdci'cd home again and the time 
we spent on this campaigii was fi'oni about llie first of Jidy until we 
got home again the 2.^)th of Novemlx'r of the same year, 17S1, about 
four months.

liat he was well acquainted with Capt. Salatliiel Martin who served 
as Captain in the Revolutionary War, but was not in the immediate 
Di'igliborhood when he entered the service, although he was in the 
neighborhood a very short time after the close of the war, and after 
llio close of his tours of service, and lived with tlie said Capt. Mar- 
tin for some time thereafter, and often heard him speak of his serv- 
ing us' Cajjtain. lie has heard many of the men who served under 
Cupt Martin, and while staying with him just after the close of the 
wur, say that they were in the service with him, and always saluted 
hiiu as their Cajjtain. Such was the case with all the people in the 
ijoighborhood and that he was a good partizan oliicer, being a man of 
great personal strength, very tall, being considered a head and shoul- 
ders taller than any other officer, at the time. After the war, all 
|«Tsons conceded to him the honor of being one of the best olhcers 
lliat served in North Carolina. The witness was conlident of his ac- 
tive service, from the testimony of jiersons living in the vicinity where 
(,'aptain Martin resided, but could not state tlie jirecisc perioils of it. 
lie thinks he must have served dui'ing a greater [xirtion of the Revo- 
lutionary Wai'. lie was well acqiuiinted with his wife iMary before 
Ler marriage to Salathiel ]\Iartin, which took place Ixifore his own 
marriage which was in 1784. 

The Secretary of North Carolina certified that Salathiel Martin 
was a Captain of Dragoons.

ceived of the ravages of the Tories in the neighborhood of Capt 
Forbis, who obtained permission to return home with his Company

had fled tlie County, and Capt. Eorbis resolved to join the army again 
but before leaving Guilford, prisoners were sent to him to guard, \ 
of which g-iiard Montgomery was one and he was on that duty when | 
the battle was fought at Guilford (March 15th, 1781). After the 
battle he was released from the care of prisoners to go to Randolph 
County against some Tories gathered in the High Hills, called the 
Caraway Mountains. (About 10 weeks.) The September follow-

JOHN TAYLOR, SENIOR. 

In December 1832 he was residing in Granville County, N. C, and 
states that he was 76 years old on the 4th inst., and that he was born 
in Virginia ; removed at the age of two years with his parents to 
Mecklenburg, in the same State, then in 1777 he settled in Granville 
County, N. C, where since living. 

In 1778 a Company was raised in Granville County to aid in 
the defence of S. C. and Georgia and was told that his brother Richard 
Taylor was the Cajitain thereof, but lie has no recollection of the 
fact. The wife of his brother Richard had received no intelligence 
of her husband in some time and expressed uneasiness in John's 
presence, to which he replied that as he had no family, he would go.

and if permitted, serve out his time as a substitute. Accordingly 
he started with two young men, Solomon Walker and Solomon 
Mitchell, to join the American army, which was stationed on the north 
side of Savannah river, opposite Augusta, then occupied by the 
British. There he learned that his brother Richard had returned 
Lome, for what cause and under what circumstances he has no recol- 
lection, but has recently been informed and believes that by reason 
I of his disappointment in not being raised to the gi-ade of Major, he 
,. had resigned his commission and left the service. lie was received 
into the service and a considerable time in the early part of his tour, 
he was in the family and marquee of Colonel Lyttle. A detachment 
\ under the command of General Ashe were ordered across the river to 
take their station at the point where Brier Creek empties into the 
Savannah River. At this time he belonged to the Company of which 
Lt. Pleasant Henderson had in jiart the command. A few days 
before the attack on his detachment, which j)ruved so fatal to it, 
General Ashe sent Lt. Henderson with dispatches to General Lincoln 
ut Purysburg and Taylor was selected to accompany him. Lt. Hen- 
derson, observing when starting, tliat Taylor did not have his saddle 
bag's, insisted on his return for them, but as Taylor hesitated, re- 
peated his recpiest, and he got them. On the road Henderson remark- 
ed he had particular reasons for insisting on his securing his saddle 
bags "for you nor 1 will see this place again as there will be a battle 
here before we return." They remained three or four days at Purys- 
burg before commencing their return to their station and soon met 
W the stragglers of their troops flying from the battle ground at Brier 
I, Creek (March 3rd, 1770) to whom he gave all the clothing in his 
saddle bags. He thinks they returned back to Purysburg, of which 
he has no recollection, nor when or where discharged. He thinks his 
service was about 5 months. 

In August 1780 he was mustered at O.xfurd in a regiment of Volun- 
teers under Colonel Phil Taylur, which marched through Ilillsboro, 
Salisbury, and Charlotte, to tlu,' Catawjia liiver. At Salisbury the 
command was changed and assumed by CJnlonel Davie. Taylor ap- 
pears to act as commissary at times for he mentions the jmrchasing 
of a large qimntity of Hour, on one occasion, for the use of the army. 
The regiment being aware of the liability to be attacked laid down 
to sleep on their arms. In course of the night they changed, with as 
little noise as possible, to another place. A short time after leaving

the ground, it was covered by Tarleton's Cavalry. At tlie Waxliaw he 
was in company with General Davie, wlien the latter pointed out the 
meeting Imuse with tlie remark that he was educated by his uncle to 
succeed him as the pastor at that house. Absent about four months. 
A regiment of mounted Volunteers was raised and placed under 
the command of Colonel llalniedy and Major Pleasant Henderson. 
A company was raised in Taylor's neighborhood, wliich elected him as 
Captain. Among the members were James Lyne, James Lewis, 
Josejih P. Davis, John Farrar, James Minge Benton, two of his 
brothers, Lewis and Edmund Taylor — one older and the other 
younger than him — and Ifobert Goodloe Harper, who afterwards be- 
came distinguished in the public councils of his country. The Com- 
pany met at Oxford to elect their Captain. After joining Colonel 
Malmedy and within seven miles of Guilford C. H., while at break- 
fast, tliey heard the report of the artillery in the battle, which started 
them to reach the battle ground by a short cut through tlie woods, 
but the route was so rocky and uneven, they abandoned it and returned 
to the more circuitous road, meeting hundreds flj'ing from the con- 
flict, from whom no information could be obtained as to tlie location 
or the issue of the engagement. Colonel Malmedy reached the battle 
ground and found it in the possession of the enemy, with their guns 
stacked around their fires. A council was held by the officers as to the 
"propriety" of attacking the camp, and ^J'aylor thinks it was only op- 
posed by Colonel Malmedy. The regiment was ordered to pursue 
after Cornwallis, who had left Guilford. In course of this pursuit, 
Capt. Taylor with as many men as he was pleased to take, was ordered 
to ascertain the position of the Britisli Army. lie selected seven, 
one of whom was Richard Goodloe llarjicr, and after two or three 
days search the required infcirmation was (ibtained of the situation of 
the main body, and on another road the enemy were driving 300 
beeves and would be compelled to march 15 miles before intersecting 
the main body. Soon after this discovery and while in the immed- 
iate neighborhood of the enemy, so mucli did tlie Company and 
horses need refreshments, that they were tcmijfed to lialt at a cabin 
and turn the horses into a wheat lot near the house. While the wo- 
man was j)reparing their breakfast of fried hominy, Cajit. Taylor, 
with all but one of his men, went to the eastern side of the cabin to 
bask in tiie sun, — the morning being cool, — leaving their arms within 
the house. Cajit. Taylor turned round to see the front surrounded

by seven or eight ai-mod men on horsebaek. AVhispei'ing to his party 
to follow him ho walked to the eabiii, but llie others not knowing 
whether they were friends or enemies, or ))erhaps from pure eoward- 
J ice, did not resist tlicir progress. Seizing liis sword and the men 
tlieir guns, presented himself at the door witli the inquiry who they 
were; and observing a motion as if to retreat, ordered his men to tire, 
but this in so liurried manner, was without mueh effect, although the 
enemy had to pass through a small gate in front in single file. One 
man put his hand to his back and dropped his hat from his head. 
It was afterwards said that a Capt. Drake of the British Army had 
died of a wound received at that time and jilaee. The wiuind was 
well understood to have been inflicted by Robert Ilarjter. Capt. 
Taylor M'as so much alarmed by the occurrence, and the danger tliey 
were in, that the party mounted their horses and set out for their regi- 
ment, which was not in the place that had been designated for that 
day. Soon afterwards he learned it was while Cornwallis was at 
\ Ramsay's ilills, Colonel Malmedy ordered an attack on Tarleton's 
Cavalry in order to draw them out in pursuit, so that Major Pleasant 
Henderson, with a detachment placed in ambush, might attack them. 
The Command of this attack, Taylor was recently informed, was 
given to De GloTtack, a Frenchman, though he (Taylor) had always 
believed the Frenchman was subordinate to him. After the neces- 
sary preparation, the young Frenchman and himself set out at the 
head of the Comjiany of alxiut forty men ordered for the attack. 
Riding side by side DeCloback remarked to Taylor that one or the 
other of them, would in ail probability, be killeil ; li> which he rejilied 
that if the enemy kept double pickets, ]H'rha])S both would be killed. 
Shortly after, seeing two pickets, and getting within abo\it forty yards 
of them, received their fire, then pushed on at full speed until they 
joined, in a short distance, some 20 or more, who were sentries to the 
main body and all ran in the direction of the army, which was prol)- 
ably within 200 or ;!00 yards further on, but were overthrown and 
three captured. Whih' thus engaged with the guard, and before they 
were aware of tlu; movement, abjut four hundred Hessians had nearly 
surrounded tliem, intercepting their return the same way from which 
the advance had been made for tlu; attack. The party, eseaiicd in 
another direction and notwithstanding the shower of bullets from the 
enemy, brought off the prisoners without receiving an injury. It was 
estimated by Major Henderson that there were three thousand bul- 



158 STATE RECORDS. 



lets sent after them. It was subsequently i-P])oi1ed that Tarleton 
refused to jmrsue the attacking party suspecting that it was a <lecuy ' 
by General Greene. De Glohack ordered tiie execution of the prison- 
ers on the pretence that the encrny would pursue, but this order was 
countermanded by Capt. Taylor. James Lyne, one of the nearest 
neighbors to Capt. Taylor brought oil a Hessian Rifle which he car- 
ried home. When Cornwallis left Ramsay's Mills (latter part of 
March, 1781) for Wilmington, N. C, Col. Malmedy was ordered 
to pursue in order t,i jtrotect the inhabitants and intermediate country 
from ravages. Absent two months, liut rated three months on account 
of the men furnishing horses. C^>t. Taylor states that he was em- 
ployed by General Davie as assistant in liis commissary department, 
hut the service may have been rendered after his hist military cam- 
paign. The first occasion he was called on to act was to go to the 
lower counties of tlie State to receive from the Sheriffs or Collectors 
of public monies such sums as they may have collected, and to pay 
the same over to General Davie. Ho thinks he has two months on 
this duty. 

On one occasion he was ordered to follow the track of the American 
Ai-my to find the sitiiation, and in whose possession were cow hides 
belonging to the public for the supply of the puldic tanneries. This 
duty took him to the S. C lino and was employed in it three months. 
At another time he was out to engage beef to bo delivered at different 
points for the use of the army, and was thus employed by General 
Davie from 12 to 18 mouths. 



JOHN WILFONG. 

In Octol>er, 1833, he was residing in Lincoln County, N. C, and 
stated that he was born in N. C, April 8th, 1702. He was living in 
said County when he enlisted on or before Sept. 1st, 1780, under 
Capt. Sigman and Lt. Vanhorn in Col. McDowall's N. C. Regiment, 
which marched to Morganton, N. C, thence to Cane Creek in Burke 
Co., whore they had a slight skirmish, then to Watauga. They re- 
turned i>y the same route, joined by Cols. Sevier, Shelby and Camp- 
bell, to (Jane Creek, iiarkc Co., fnmi llicuce to the Cowpens, where 
they were joined by Cols. Cleveland and Williams and Lincoln's 
troops, after which they crossed Broad River and fought the battle of 
King's Mountain. The same day Colonel Ferguson was killed and the

whole of his army taken prisoners. In this battle Wilfong was 
wounded in the left arm by a ball and returned home October 8th, 
1780 (the next day after the battle). 

In Jnly, 1781, ho volunteered for 10 months with Capt. Cowan 
and Lt. George Hammond, in Colonel Hammond's regiment, which 
marched from Lincoln N. C, to near Augusta, Ga., from thence into 
S. C, joining the army of General Gi'eene, from thence to Eutaw 
Springs and was in the battle in 1781 (Sept. 6), then to White Hall, 
S. C. In March, 1782 he marched to the Cherokee Nation under 
Capt Jesse Johnson, returned to General Pickens in S. C, where 
he served the residue of his time.

NARRATIVE OF 

COL'O DAVID FANNING, 



WRITTEN BY HIMSELF, 



Detailing Astonishing Events in No. Ca., 

FROM 1775 TO 1783. 



TO THE READER. 



Courteous Reader: 

Whoever thou art, tlie Author being only a Fanner bred, and not 
conversant in learning, thou inay'st think that the within Journal is 
not authentic. Rut it may be depended upon on that every particu- 
lar hei'ein mentioned ia nothing but the truth: Yea, I can boldly 
assert that I have undergone much more than what is herein men- 
tioned. 

Rebellion according to the Scripture is, as the Sin of Witchcraft; 
and the propagators thereof, has been more than once punished; 
wiiich is dreadfully exemj.lified this day in the now United States of 
America but formerly Provineos; for since their Independence from 
Great Britain, they have been awfully and visibly punished by the 
fruits of the earth being cut off; and civil dissention every day pre- 
vailing among them; their fair trade, and commerce almost totally 
ruined; and nothing prospering so much as nefarious and rekdlious 
Smuggling. Whatever imperfections is in the within, its hoped 
will be kindly overlooked by tlie courteous R^>ader, and attributed to 
the Author's want of learning. 

I do not set forth anything as a matter of amusement, but what is 
really, justly fact, that my transactiojis and scenes of life have been 
as herein narrated during the term of the Rekllion ; and that con-

duct, resolution, and courage perfonri wondrous things beyond credi- 
bility, the following of which laudable deeds will give them, are 
exercised therein the Experience that 1 have gained. 

In the 19th year of my age, I entered into the War ; and pr(X!eeded 
from one step to another, as is herein mentioned, and at the conclusion 
thereof, was forced to leave the place of my nativity for my adher- 
ence to the British Constitution ; and after my sore fatigues, I ar- 
rived at St. John River ; and there with the blessing of God, I have 
liitherto enjoyed tJio sweets of peace, and freedom under the l>enevo- 
lent auspices of the British Goveruinent — which every loyal and true 
subject may enjoy with me, is the wisii of tiie Author.

.A JOURNAL OF 

COL. DAVID FANNING'S TRANSACTIONS, 

\ DURING THE LATE WAR, IN AMERICA; FROM TIIE 

YEAR 1775, 

COMMENCING 1ST OF MAY; UNTIL THE PEACE. 



Col. Thomas Fleachall of Fairforest, ordered the diifcront Cap- 
tains to call the musters, and present two i)apers for the inhabitants 
to sig-n. One was to see who was friends to the King and Govern- 
ment; and the other was to see who would join the Rebellion. 

The first day of May, Capt. James Lindley, of Rabern's Creek, 



182 STATE RECORDS. 






sent to me, as I was a Sergeant of tlie saiil comiiany, to have liis com- i 
pany warneil to meet at his honse 15th of said month. 1 did ac- 
cordingly, and presented two papers; there were US men signed in 
favour (jf the King, also declared t(j defend the same, at the risk of 
lives and jirojierty, in Jidy 1775. 'i'here was several advertisements 
set up in every part of said district, that there was a very good 
jirespeteariug minester to call at the l)itferent places, to preach, and 
Baptise children. 

But at the time appointed, instead of meeting a Minister, we all 
went to meet two Jews hy name of Silvedoor and Rapely; and after 
making many speeches in favour of the Mehellion, and used all their 
endeavors to delude the jieojjle away, at last presented Revolution 
papers to see who would sign them; they were severely reprenianded 
hy Henry O'Neal and many others. It came .so high, that they had 
much adue to get off, with their lives. The Rehcls then found that 
we were fully determined to ojjpose them. They began to embody 
in the last of said month ; to compel all to join them, or to take away 
our arms. Our officers got word of their intentions. I then gut 
orders from tJie Captain to warn the Alilitia t(j assemble themselves 
at Hugh O'Neal's mill; which was done by several (.'aptains' com- 
panys, and continued for several days under arms; and theti both 
parties was determined on this condition, that neither parties should 
intercept each other. This continued for some time, until the Rebels 
had taken Thomas Brown, \\\ut after that had the honor to Ix; Colonel 
of the Regiment of the East Florida Rangers, at Augusta. They 
burnt his feet, tarred, feathered and cut <iff' his hair. After that he 
got so he was able to set on horseback, he came to our poast, and the 
Rebels then began to endnjdy again. Col'n Fletehall found a large 
camp, and marched from the Liberty Springs to Mill Creek on our 
way towards Ninety-Six ; Twelve miles from Ninety-Six the Rebels 
found that they were not strong enough for us, and sent an Express 
to Col'n Eletchall to come and treat with them, which said Eletchall 
did. But the terms of their treatment I did not know. We were all 
dismissed until further ordi-rs. In a short time after the Rebels 
took Capt. Robert Cunningham ami carried him (df to Charleston. 
Our party was then informed of his being taken otf in the night time, 
and by making inquiry after him, ^ve got inforuuition of a largo 
quantity of Ammonition, that was there, on its way to the Cherechee 
Nation for Capt. Richard Paris to bring the Indians down irito the

settlement, where the friends of tlie Govc.niiueiit lived, to murder 
ij all they could. We iiitercejited the auionition and took Oapt'n Ji. 
I Paris, who swore to tliese facts. We there formed a large camp, and 
I (Jul. Fletchall being so heavy, he gave iij) the commaud to Maj. Jo- 
k seph Eobinson. 

In the month of Nov'r 1775, the South Carolina Militia, of which 
I was at that time Sergeant, under the connnand of Major Joseph 
llohinson, laid scige to a Fort, erected by the Rebels at Ninety-Six ; 
i connnanded by Col. Mason: which continued for the space of three 
(lays, and three nights — at the ex])iration of which time the Relx>ls 
were forced to surrender, and give up the Fort and Artillery. Ma- 
jor Robinson then ordered the Militia to the North side of the Saluda 
River, and discharged them, for eighteen days. Afterwards orders 
were issued for every (Japtain to collect their respective conqianies at 
Ilendrick's Mill, about 20 miles from Ninety-Six; 'J'he Rebels hav- 
ing received intelligence of our intended motion, they imuicdiately 
marched before us; and took j)ossession of the ground, which pre- 
vented our assembling there. But alxjut liOO of our Men met at 
Little River and marched from thence to Reedy River; and en- 
camped at tlie Big Cane JBreak, for several days. The Rebels being 
infonned of our situation, inarched unexpectedly u\)Ou \is, and made 
prisoners of 1^0 of our men; the remainder Hcd into the woods and 
continued there, with the Cherichee Indians until the 18th Jan'y 
177G; when I was nnide a prisoner by a [larty of Rebels comnuinded 
by a Captain John Burns; who after detaining me four days, re- 
peatedly urging me t<j take the oath of allegiance to the United States, 
stript me of everything, and made me give security, for my future 
good behaviour, by which means I got clear; On the 10th of May 
i 1776 hearing the Rebels had issued a proclamation to all friends of 
government, offering them pardon and protection, provided they 
would return to their respective habitations and remain neutral, this 
induced me to return to my home, where I arrived on the ISth of 
June. 

On the 20th, the Rebels being apprehensive of the Cherichee In- 
dians breaking out, despatched several eiriissarios among the Loyal- 
ists, for to disc(jver their intentions. One of which was Ca])t. 
Ritchie, who came to me, and told me 1k' was a fiiend to Govern- 
ment, and some time 1>efore left the Indian NatiiJii, and then wanted 
a pilot to conduct him to the Indian Nation again. I agreed to con-

duct him to any part of tlio amntry lie wantfJ fur to go, provided he l 
would keep it secret. This he jjromiscd for to do. But iiurne- '1 
diatcly lie went and lodged information against me, and swore that 
I then had a company of men, ready in order, for to join the Indians, j 
In consequence of this, I was made prisoner again, on the 25th, by 1 
a Capt. John Rogers, and thrown into close confinement with 
three centinels over me. On the 1st of July, the Indians came down 
into the back country of South Carolina, and killed several families; 
at which time, the rebel camji being in great confusion, 1 made my 
escape, and went to my own house at Rabirn's creek; but finding a 
number of my friends had already gone to the Indians, and more 
disposed so for to do, I got twenty-hve men to join me; and on our 
arrival at Parishies plantation, on Reedy River, in the Indian land, 
we formed a junction with the Indians, on the ICth inst., in the 
evening; the militia and the Cherickees to amount to 200 surrounded 
the fort built with logs, containing 450 of the Rebels. After a smart 
hre on both sides for two hours and a half, we retreated without any 
injury except one of the Indian Chiefs being shot throiigh the hand. 
I then left the Indians and j)ursued my way to North Carolina; 
where, on my arrival, I was taken up again, and close confined ; but 
was rescued by my friends, three different times. After which I 
made my escape good. I tiien endeavored for to go home again ; and 
after experiencing numberless hardshiiis in the woods, I arrived the 
10th of ]\Iarch, 1777, at Rebun's creek, South Carolina. 

I was made prisoner again on the 11th, by a Ca[)t. Smith, Ixiund 
hand and foot, and carried under guard, towards Ninety-Six gaol; 
after marching twelve miles, the company hailed fur the evening, and 
watching an opportunity, I cut the ropes 1 was bound with, and stript 
myself when the guard was asleej). 1 thi'cw myself out of the win- 
diiw and returned back to Reburu's creek, by a ditfercnt way, from 
that which they had carrii'd me juisoner. I was obliged now for to 
secret myself in the woods, ami was supjdied with jirovision by sonio 
Quakers, and other Ixiyalists, in the neighburhuod. 

A company of Loyalists, of which 1 was onr, was then raised by a 
Richard Parish, and it was determined to go to jMobile, and join tho 
British army. One cjf the company proving treacherous, gave infor- 
mation to the Rebels, who raised a body of troops for to suppress us. 
They took me, with five more prisoners, and carried us to Ninety-Six 
gaol, on the 5th August, 1777. Captain Parish escaped with some

T>oyalists, belonging to the eoiniiany, and made liis way good to the 
British army at Mobile, in West Florida. Myself, with five others, 
, who were taken, remained in close C(jntineniont, until November fol- 
lowing, and we were tried for our lives, on a charge of High Treason, 
for rising in arms against the United States of Ariierica ; but were 
acquitted and went lnune. The fees and exjionses of my confinement 
aiuuunted to £300, Virginia money, allowing dollars at six siiillings 
eucli, which I paid, and was then ordered back to the gaol for the rent 
' of the room. 

On the 1st of March, 1778, Capt. John 7ork, of East Florida, 
received orders from the conunander-in-chief iov the ]A)yal Militia, 
of Georgia, and South Carolina, to assemble themselves. Accord- 
ingly they were embodied. — The majority of the people chose me 
their eoniniaiiding officer, we took a number of prisoners, furnished 
ourselves wilh horses, and marched to Savannah river on the borders 
of Georgia, (two miles above Augusta). Capt. ^'ork, who was our 
pilot, then got discouraged, and would not suil'er any of the militia 
to proceed with him back to Fast Florida except three men; we were 
then under the necessity of returning home, upwards of one hundreil 
miles, through the rebel country; and betake ourselves to the woods 
as formerly. During our retreat, we were persued by three hundred 
rebels; but we got back home to l^eburn's creek safe. When the 
Rebels f(jund we were returned, they raised a liody of men for to take" 
us; and for the space of three months kept so constant a look out that 
we were obliged for tu stay in the wikhIs; six weeks of which time I 
never saw a man, except SamiU'l Hiuwn (who was aftei'wards killed 
at Tiger river,) that shared my snlTci'iiigs ; wi' lived entirely without 
either bread or salt, up(jn what we killed in the wihhu'uess. , We de- 
termined, let the consequences be what they would, to proceed to the 
settlement of Green River, Noi'th (-arolina, where we rested our- 
selves at a friend's house, about a week. Here we parted. I then 
proceeded to Tiger river, where 1 armed safe (in the 1st of June, 
1778. Myself, and Samuel Smith, now associated, and were taken 
by a company of reljels commanded liy a Cajit. Goiry. Wv. made our 
escape the second night, by bi'ibing tlie sentinel, and parted company. 
I met with One of the horses belonging to the i-ebels, about a mile from 
the house I had escaped from, and mounted him. They jicrsued me 
through the woods by the horsct's tracks, \iiiwards of seventy miles, 
and came to Reburn's Creek where 1 lived. They were anxious to

recover tlieir horse froin me, and jiruiuiseJ for to return one of the • 
four tliey had taken from me, if I would deliver up the said horse, i 
This being agreed upon, I went with them for to receive my own j 
horse back; when we had advanced 30 miles we came near to where 
a rebel fdrt was-; I desired them to go, a little out of the way, and : 
a\'iiid it, which they iiail promised to do before we jiroceeded on our 
journey. One of them laid hold of my horse's bridle, and told me to 
surrender myself a prisoner, for they were determined to confine me 
in the Fort, or carry me to Ninety-Six gaol, about 80 miles off. They 
said I was not in that damni'd tory country at that time. I, there- 
fore, after sonic conversaticji;, I'cjnchided to s\dimit for to l>e disarmed 
at the time, as they tlirealened blowing a ball through me every in- 
stant, if 1 did not surrender; wiiicii I did. On my arrival at the 
Kort, 1 was stript of my clothes, and coiitined close !till morning, 
wiicu they tied my legs under a horse's Ixdly, and took me before a 
magistrate to conniiit nic to gacjl. However I was admitted to bail 
for my good behaviour. On my return to the people, who took my 
horse, aii<l (dutlies, and asking for them, 1 was retaken before another 
magistrate, and cdHimittcMl to gaol, tinder a stronger giiard. On my 
pi'oceeiling towards the gacd, the guard was particularly careful about 
setMiring me; and in order for to do it, the more effectually tied me 
with a rii]]c, to a .stout fellow who was one of them. When I found 
iiim asleep, I took the ojiportunity to cut myself loose with a knife 
(or rather with a i)air of horse fleames) which was accidentally left 
lying in the road, and throwing myself out of the window made my 
(scape, and took to tiie mountains for shelter. 1 e(Hitinued there, for 
some time, when Col. Mills of the I.oyal _Militia on knowing where T 
was, projjosed at several meetings, we had, to raise a company; which 
we did, iif 500 men, for the purpose of going to St. Aug^istine. One 
of the coniinmy proved faithless, and gave infonnation to the Rebels, 
who immediately emb<jdietl themselves, and took Ool. Mills prisoner, 
with 11) of the company, arid carried them off to Salisbury Jail. 
Myself with 14 more persued about 20 miles with an intention of 
rescuing them, until we were in sight of Gilbert Town ; where the 
Rebels had a guard ; and finding wo could not affect our purjiose at 
that time, our numbers being so small, and theirs increasing, we re- 
turned back. The Rebels persued us all night, and in the morning, 
we perceived them within shot of us ; we fired upon them, which they 
returned; anil continued skirmishing in the woods about an hour;

wlion they retreated. Wluit injury we did them wo eo\ild not tell; 
■ on our part we suftercd no loss. Here our party separated. I made 
way for Ilolsten River about 140 miles through the woods — I had 
proceeded about 40 miles on my way, when I was met by three men; 
one of which knew me. ITc came to me, with seeming friendship, 
niul on taking my hand, called his comjianions to assi.st him in secur- 
ing me; which they did; and made me a jirisoner. They tied my 
liaiids behind ni}' back, and feet to each other under the horse's belly 
and took me to Ninety-Six .Tail again, wliere 1 was closely confined 
for 17 days. During my confinement I got acquainted with a friend 
to the government, who lived there, I)}' talking to him through the 
grates; lie furnished me with two files and a knife, by wJiich means 
I cut through the iron bars and esca|)cHl. I returned again to Re- 
burn's Creek and after rcnuiining some time in the wujods there, I 
was advised by friends for to make peace with ('apt. tiillian, who 
commanded a company of Ivebels on the Indian lines. lie said I durst 
nut be seen by any one of the Rebel party, 1 got one of my friends to 
go to him, and desire him to nieet me alone, at a jiarticular place, and 
give him my word I would not injure him. We met accordingly, and 
]iassed our wcirds for not to disturb or injure each other. We con- 
tinued our meetings, in the woods, generally, every day, or two, for 
the space of a month ; until we were discovered by some of his com- 
l)any ; who thi'eatened f(jr to have him punished for treating with me ; 
lujwever he still met me, now and then ; and introduced a friend of 
ills to me ;■ who he told me I might dcjiend upon. One day, I ob- 
served an alteration in their behaviours, and asked them when at some 
distance, if he meant for to keep his woril witli me. He replied "by 
all means." We were all on horseback, and I had my rifle across my 
saddle. When we were going to part, as I expected, he suddenly 
seized my rifle; and the man who was with him seized hold of my 
iiorse's bridle, he presented his rifle to my breast and told me 1 was 
Ills prisoner, or a dead man. I was under the necessity to surrend(;r, 
and they carried me again to my old quarters at iSIinety-Six, where; 
we arrived on the 11th of Oct'r, 1778. I was stripped entirely 
naked, thrown into irons and chained to the floor. I remaint^d in 
that situation until the i^Oth of December lullowing, when I again 
made shift, for to get my irons ofl', and having sawed one of the grates 
some time before, I again escaped by moans of fellow prisduer, who 
supplied me with some old clothes, of which I made a rope to let mo

(lo^\'u; I received a fall in getting clown, but luckily did not hurt my 
self. The Gaoler heard nie fall, and presented a musket at me, out ; 
(if a wiudiiw; hut I avoided hini. lie alarmed the guard and they ; 
]iersued me; h\it however 1 got clear dtf. I found myself much hurt \ 
liy a fall I got in their chasing me. I got hack to Rehurn's Creek; 
hut was laken in thi'ce days; and iigain introduced at Ninety-Six. I 
was chained and ironed as before, in the centre of a room 'M feet 
square; forty-five from the gr(mnd, the .snow beating in, through tlie 
roof, with four grates o])on night and day. I remained in this state 
eleven days; I got my chains (jif in the night of the 12th; The Gaoler 
did not chain me down again ; but I had still part of them remaining 
on one of my legs, which weighed seven pounds and three quarters. 
1 continued loose in Gacd until the Itith of February, 1779, when I 
took a bar out of the window, in the night, and prised one of the ' 
jjlanks out of the tiuor of the Room, and frcun thence went down- 
stairs ; I found the door fast, secured ; but I went to a breach, I had '^ 
formerly made in the back of the chimney, and got out. One of my 
fellow ])ris(jners escapeil with me, and we kept together for some time 
after. We fotmd a number of Horses grazing in a field belonging to 
a company of Rebels, imdcr the command of Capt. Fair; who that 
night come into Town. We mounted each of \is, and rode off to Re- 
burn's (.'reck. On our way, we stopjied at a house, and furnished 
ourselves with a iville and a pair of Pistols; we also supplied 
ourselves with clothing. By this time, the neighborhood was alarmed 
and the Reliol militia sent in pursuit of us. They laid several am- 
buscades, btit without effect, and continued emlxalied, for six months. 
I was so fortunate as for to cscajie ; b\it my companion was taken. 
The day after, he was taken, I \s'as riding through a piece of timbered 
wocjds, when I discovered a party oi men — they discovered me, and 
juirsued on full speed for seven miles; hut I was lucky enough to 
escape them; but my Horse falling, threw me, and I unfortunately 
lost my rifle. An advertisement was, then, made public, for appre- 
liending me; and a reward of Seventy silver dollars, and Three Hun- 
dred paper ones, was offered to take mo. This nmde me very cau- 
tious, notwithstanding which I was l)etrayed and fired upon by a 
]jarty of iicbels, in ntuiibcr, sixteen; I received two bullets in my 
back; one of which is not extracted. 1 luckily kept my seat in the 
saddle, and rode off. After proceeding 12 miles I turned my horse 
into the woods, and renuiined tJiere eight days; having no support

but herbs/except three oggs ; my wuuiuls, at that time being trcnible- 
BOiue and ott'encive, for the want of dressing, I got my Horse again, 
and moved about twelve miles to a friend's house; where on my ar- 
rival, I made a signal, whieh they knew, to acquaint them, of my be- 
ing alive — a young girl of fourteen years old, caine to me; but when 
slio came near enough to see me, she was frightened so at the sight, 
alio run off. I persiUHl after her on horseback, telling her wlm T was; 
She said she knew it was me, but I was dead; that I was, liien, a 
spirit and stunk yet. I was a long time Ijefore 1 could got her to come 
to me. I looked so much like a rack of nothing but skin and hones, 
and my wounds had not been dressed, and my clothes all bloody. My 
iiisery and situation was lx>yond ex}danatioii, and no friend in the 
world that I could depend upon; However, these ]>eoplc seeing me 
in that distrest sitiuition, took IIk; greatest care of me, and drest my 
wounds. My lujrse having been seen by some of the Relxd party, 
Tiioy concluded I was not killed; and wrote several letters which 
they gave one of my friends, offering to treat with me ; and advising 
uie to surrender; threatening at the same time, in case I did not, to 
banish eight families of my friends out of South Carolina. A 
limited time was given for ray answer, but it had expired, Ind'ore that 
I received the letters; in consequence of which, their threats were put 
into execution ; and the peo[de's i)ro])erty was taken from them, and 
they confined. On the receipt of my lettci', the i)eo])le were liberated, 
but their properties were still detained. 

The second day, after, 1 treated with the Colonel of the Rebel 
Militia, and had an express sent off to Gov. Hutledge at Charlestown, 
about a week after his answer came back witli a conditional pardon 
for that which 1 had done, shouhl Ik: fcirgotten, and that 1 should 
live quii.^tly and peacefully at bouie ; and In' ol)liged to pilot parties 
through the woods as occasion might re<piire. 

Before I exce])ted of these conditions, I advised with my friends, 
and company, who all a])proved of it, as it conducc:d both to their 
ease, and safety. 

I rcnuuned at home a year and twelve <lays, and was re])eatediy 
urged for to except of a c<jm])any in the f^mtinental .service, which T 
always refused. 

After the reduction of Ciiarlcstown, uiyM'lf and one William Cun- 
ingham, concluded for to eud>ody a party of men, which we affected. 

We detennined for to take Col'n Williams, of the Rebel Militia,

jirisdiK'!', and tlicn to join Capt. Pai'isli, wlm was to raise a company 
and assist us. Col'n Williams got notice of it and pusli(.'il off; and 
though we got siglit of him, he eseajted us. 

We now found ourselves growing strong, and numbers flocking i 
daily to us. 

I then took the King's proclamations and distrihutcd them through ; 
the country, for upwards of a hundi-cd miles. 

Ca])t. Parish had command of the party, and marched up to Ninety- 
Six, whicli he took commanti (jf, without tiring a sliot, where I fonnd , 
him again. 'J'he day affi'r, we marchcul about 12 miles, to Gen. 
Williamson's at Whitehall; who commanded a fort with 14 swivels, ! 
and two companies of ])rovincial troops. On our ap])roach, he met ( 
us, about three miles of the Fort, attended by several officers, re- 
q\iesting he might discharge the troops, and have protection for him- 
self and them. 

We granted him what he requested; and took possession of the ] 
Fort, and their arms, which they jiiled up; after that they nmrched ; 
out of the garrison. 

Three days after that. Col. Pickins, witli .'iOO nicn, marclied out ■ 
and laid down their arms. 

General Robert Cunningham, <if the l.oyal Militia, now took the 
connnand; and formed a camj). 

We kejit scouting i)arties, through the country, and had many 
skirmishes; but none of consecjuence. 

After the Britisli American troops, had taken poss(>ssion of Ninety- ; 
Six, I continued scouting on the Indian lines, until Col. Innis for- ''. 
warded his mai'cli \i\) to Ifusgrovi' ]\lill, on tlu> Innoree Rivei', I then 
joined them with a ]iarty of fourteen men. 

The f(dlowing morning the pii'kcts were attacked by a party of 
Rebels. Col. Innis ordered us to advance and su])port them, whicli 
we did, and followed them initil we arrived where the main b<jdy 
lay, under Col. Williams. Col. innis was unfortunately wounded, 
with several other officers. 

We engaged them for some time, and then retreated alKiut a mile 
and a quarter; where we encani])ed and in tlie night, marched off to- 
wards Ninety-Six, undei- command of Capl. Depisler. 

The next morning 1, and my small party returni'd back to the 
Indian lines. We continued .scouting on the lines, for some time, 
until I met with ('apt. Parish, of the British American South Ciaro- 



STATE RECORDS. 191 



Una Regiment, who gave nie a list of some soldiers that he had per- 
mission for to visit their families in the country, on tli© return from 
Florida to Ninety-Six. I was desired by him for to go to give them 
notice for to join their regiments. 'On this expedition, I fell in with 
Major Ferguson's party, which was defeated five days afterwards. 
Tlie Rebels after that, began to Ik? nnmer(jus and tronblesojue; and 
little or no regulation amongst lis, I made the iK'st of my way to Deej) 
River, North Carolina, where 1 remained until the month of Febru- 
ary, 1781. 

I was, during tlii.s time, discovering tiie disposition of tiu' )ieij])le; 
Iteing informed that Lord Cornwallis was marching tluit way, I kept 
my intentions secret, until I received certain accounts. 1 tiien 
caused this advertisement to be jmblishcd, and used all my influence 
t() get all the Loyalists to join me, and defend ours^dves, when occasion 
might require. A true copy of whicli is here set forth. 

■'advektisement. 
"If any of his ]\lajesty's loyal ami faithful subjects, able and 
willing to Serve in the Royal North (!ar(dina Regiment commanded 
by Col. Hamilton, are hereby reijuested to repair to his encam]i- 
nient. The Bounty allowed for eaidi man, is three Guineas; and 
I the terms of engagement are that ho sliall servo during the Relxdlion, 
and within the Provinces of North and Soutli Carolina, and Virginia

, Provisions, and all the advantages of his llajesty's Regular, ami 
Provincial Troops, and at the end of tiie Rebellion, when he becomes 
discharged, of course, he is to receive as a reward for his services 
during the war, a free grant of Land agreeable to his Majesty's procla- 
mation." 

Of his persuing Gen. Greene, as far as llillsboro, this struck such 
a terror on the Rebels, and was so jileasing to us, that we imme- 
diately disarmed the disaffected and embodied alx)ut i500 men >inder 
tlie conunand of Col. Pyles. He fell in with a party of Rebels (Col. 
Lee's dragoons) and lost 20 men killed beside the wounded, that died 
afterwards. At this time I was with a snnill ])arty at Deep River, 
where I took two ReKd officers, ])risonc'rrt and several soldiers. T 
then directed my march where I left Col. Pyles and came in a little 
distance of the Dragoons, that bad cut him up, when 1 was informed 
of his misfortune by some of his })arty that had fled; we then sepa-

rati'd into small parties and took to the woods for some time. 

The (lay J^ord Cornwullis defeated Gen. Gri'eiie at Guilford, I was 
siirprised by a Capt. Diiek, with a ccniipany of R*;l)ols, where I sus- 
tained a loss of all (jur Horses, and anus; we had (Jiie man killed on 
eaeh side. 

The day following, myself, and three more of the company, fur- ,| 
nished ourselves with arms, and [)ersued the Rehels, who we discov- ''■■ 
ered had gone to their respective homes with their plunder. We 
visited one of their houses and found the horses which had been taken { 
from tlie friends of the Government; and discovering one of the said 
party in an out house. I fired at him, and wounded him in the neck 
with buckshot; but he esca])ed. We then mounted ourselves, and ^ 
turning the other horses into the woods, we returned back to Deep i 
River. We kept concealed in the woods and collected 25 men, having 
scouts out continually until we ju'ocecded to Dixon's Mill, Cane 
Creek, where Jxn-d Cornwallis was there encamped. On our arrival 
there his Lordship met us, and asked me several questions respecting 
the situation of the country, and disposition of the people. I gave 
him all the information in my power, and leaving the company with • 
his Ixjrdship, I returned back to Deep river in order f(jr to conduct 
more men to the protection of the British arms. 

Two days following, I returned to the army at Chatham Court 
House, after being sur]irised and dispersed by the Rebel Dragoons; 
on my bi'inging in 70 Lijyalists, 1 joined my com]iauy again and 
went with his Lordship, to Cross Creek, and as we had lost most of 
our horses, we determined to return to Deep River, and join his Lord- 
ship when on his way to IlillslKirough. General Greene followed his 
Liu'dship as far as Little River, and then returned to Ramsey's Mills 
on his way to Camden; his men marched in small parties and dis- 
tressed the friends to Government, through the Deep River settle- 
ment ; I took 18 of them at diiferent times, and paroleil them, and 
after that we were not distressed by them for some little time; after 
a little while some of us had assembled at a friend's house, where we . 
were surrounded by a party of 14 Relxds under the command of Capt 
John Hinds; we perceived their ap])roach and i>rc])ared for to receive 
them; when they got quite near us, we run out of the docir of the 
house, tired upon them, and killed one of them; on which we tu(jk 
three of their horses, and some firelocks — we then took to the woods 
and unfortunatidy had two of o\ir little company taken, one of which 



STATE RECORDS. 193 



tlie Relx»ls shot in cold hlcxjd, and the other they hung mi the spot 
H wliere wc killed the man a few days ht^fore. We were exas]ierated 
at this, that we determined to have satisfaction, and in a few days I 
collected 17 men well arme<l, and fdinied an andmscade on Deep 
r' Kiver at Coxe's Mills, and sent out my s]iies. In the course of two 
iioiirs, one of my s)iics i;ave nie infoi-iualion of a party of Rebels 
plundering;' his house, wliich was ah<iut threes miles oil'. I instantly 
marched to the ])lace and discovere(l them in a ri(dd near the housi'. 
I attacked them innnediately, and kept u|i a smart tire for half an 
hour, during which time we killed their Captain, and one ])i'ivale, 
on the spot — wounded three of them, and took two ])risoners besides 
eight of their horses well appointed, and several swords. This hap- 
pened on the lltli of May, 1781. The same, tlay, we ]iersiR(l an- 
other party of Rebels, and came U]) with them the morning folhnving; 
we attacked them smartly ami killed four of them on the s])ot, 
wounded 3 dangerously and took one [irisdner with all their horses, 
and ajipointments. In about an hour after that, we took two men of 
the same party, and killed one more of them ; the same evening we 
had intelligence of another party of Rebc-ls, which were assembling 
nlxjut 30 miles off in order for to attack us; as 1 thought it best to 
surprise them where they were; collecting, I niaiched all night and 
akiut 10 o'clock next morning, wv came up with them; we com- 
menced a fire iqxin each (jther, which continued for about 10 minutes 
when they retreated; we killed two of iIumm, and wounded 7, ami took 
18 horses well aj)pointed ; we then returned to Diej) River again. I 
still kept the company together, atid wailt'd for another op])ortunity, 
during which time, 1 t«Jok two Rel)el soldiers and parolled them, who 
gave me information of a Col. Dtulley coming from Gen'l Greene's 
camp at Camden, with baggage. 

I mounted my men and set forward in search of them; and T 
concealed my men by the side of the road; and I thought the time 
long; according to information 1 had from the soldiers — I took one 
man with me, and went to see if 1 ccjidd make any discovery. 1 
rode a mile and a half, when I saw (\)\. I Mid ley with his Iciggage. [ 
then wheeled my horse, and returneil to my men ; where I came 
within a hundred yards of them. Dudley and his Dragoons were 
nose and tail and snaiijied their pistols several tinu's. 1 then, or- 
dered a march after them, and after marching i!'/^ miles I discovered 
them, and immediately took three of tjiem prisoners, with all the,

wliieb agrecal>l}' to Col. Dudley's rejniit was valued at £1,000 ster- 
ling. 1 returned to Coxe's J\lill and remained there till the 8th 
dune; when the Kelnds end)odifd KiO men to attack me, under the 
eomuiand of Cols. C'oUyer and Halt'cjiir. I determined to get the 
advantages by attacking them, whicli 1 did with -1!) men in the night, 
after marching ten miles to tiieir encampment. 'Idic}' look one of the 
guides, which gave them nutice of my approach. 1 proceedi'd within 
thirty steps of them; but being unacquainted with the grounds, ad- 
vanced very cautiously. The sentinel, however, discovered my party, 
and firing upon us, retreated. They secured themselves under the 
cover of the houses, and fences; the firing then began ; and continued 
on both sides for the space of fnur hours; being very cloudy and dark 
— during which time I had one man killed, and six wounded; and 
the guide, before mentioned taki'U ]>risoni-r; whom they kilh'd next 
morning in cold blood. What injury they suffered, I could not 
learn. As the morning appeared, we I'etreated, and returned again 
to iJeep River; leaving our wounded men at a friend's house, pri- 
vately. 

'idle Rebels then kept a constant scouting, and their munbers were 
so great, that we had to lay still fur some time; and when Collier 
and Halfour left the seltlement, he and the said (!(doncl Dudley, be- 
fore mentiiined, took the place with ;!(M) men from Virginia. Jle 
tdtik a negro man from me and s(d<l him at public auction for 110 
l)ounds; the said negro was sent over the mountains, and I never 
saw him since. At length they all began to scattei'; and we to em- 
body. William EIrod being jealous of my taking t<io niiudi com- 
mand of the men, and in iny absence, one day, he jnirsnailcd them 
that I was a going to nuda' them regular soldiers, and cause them 
to be attached to Cid. John Hamilton's Regiment; and vindicated it, 
by an advertisement, that I had handed to several of the Loyalists; 
that 1 thought had the greatest influence with the Loyalists. He so 
ju'cvailed with the coninion sort, that wbi'ii I eann' to camp 1 fijund 
most of my men gone; I (hen, decdaicd 1 never would go on another 
sc(iut, until there was a Kicdd Ollicer. The majority chose nic. 
They, then, drew uj) a petition to the commanding ollicer oi the 
King's troops.

aequaiiiting- tliem, that tlie ill ti'eatiiieut of some iirisoners they had

inandcd at the time before, and I received the following answer. 

"Sir, 1 received yours by a iiag, and can assure you that I shoidd 
be as sorry as any person living to misuse a prisoner; but at the 
same time, I think that it is my duty to oppose my enemies, and if 
any of your men should fall into my hand.s I shall endeavor to use 
what iniiuence I can to have them treated as prisoners ; and I hope j 
you will do the same. 1 must also inform you, that I am not the 
conmianding oiiicer; if I was, I should immediately return you an 
answer; As your letter was not directed to the commanding officer 
he will not undertake it. \\n\ will tlirect to him ; Colonel O'Neal is 
Commander at present.

To Col. David Fanning. 

I ais(j reci'ived a message from (Jol. O'Neal that whenever they 
met, they would tight me, but not by an immediate appointment; I 
directly orderd a march and proceeded to the place where 1 was iii- 
formeil by the Bearer of the Flag they lay encamped; but on my 
arrival there, they had marched off; and from intelligence I had 
procured, I had reason to sujipose they had gone to Salesbury to get 
reinforced, by General Rutherford. I then concluded to go, to Wil- 
miugton for a suj)))ly of ammunition ; finding my st<ick Ix-gan to grow 
low. J got to Cnjss CJreek on the 11th of August; and early in the 
morning following eros-sed the Cape Fear River, when Alaj. tSamuel 
Andrews joined me with his company and scouted through all the 
rebel settlements, on the north side of the River; and took a number 
of prisoners, arms and horses. I also discovered where 25 barrels of 
salt were concealed ; designed for the rebel army. I distroyed it ; 
and then marched down the side ; and came to a plantation belonging 
to a Capt. Robertson — which I burned ; From tluince I marched to 
his brother's Col. Robertson, which served in the same manner. On 
my march, I took several prisoners, wlujm I jiaroUed, except 20; 
those I delivered to Capt. Leggett, tlien commanding at Wilmington; 
where I arrived on the 24th. Having got sup]died with ammuni- 
tion, 1 proceeded up the country on the 2Gth.

On my arrival at Elizabethtowii, I foiiiid Col. Slingslicc, of the 
lA)ya\ Militia of Rladcii county, with a miiiihcr of paroled reU'ls in 
bis camp. I disapproved of kee])ing- them, there, and told him I 
thought it imprudent and unsafe. The event proved so; for that 
night they, having some arms concealed, fired upon his camp, and 
wounded him mortally. Five Captains were also wounded, some of 
whom died afterwards of their wounds. The day following I arrived 
et McFalls mills ahout 00 miles, where I disjiatched HO of my 
men back, to render assistance, on receiving the unfortunate accounts 
of Col. Slingsl>ee's misfortune ; but it was too late ; as the relxds 
I Lad taken to the woods. and got off. 

I had information of the rebel, Col'n Wade with 450 militia, was, 
then, on his march to attack Col. JMcNeal, who had assembled 70 
of the Loyal Militia of Bladen, and they lay on the side of Drown- 
ing Creek. 1 instantly dispatched an express, to know his situation, 
and offering assistance ; in three h(mrs, I received for answer, he 
would be glad to see me and my party. 1 marched tlirectl}-, and by 
daylight, arrived with 155 men. Our pickets were fired upon ; and 
retreated into camp, having exchanged shots with those of the Kelxds. 
We had information that they were crossing a bridge on Drowning 
Creek, about three miles off, when the pickets fii-ed upim them ; 
and that there was 420 men crossed the bridge. 1 immediately or- 
dered all my men to arms, and counted them; which in ninnber was 
225, horse and foot ; I then marched inuaediatcly to attack them ; 
when I formed my little jiarty I loft great vacancies in order to ap- 
pear as niimero\is as possible, and to ])revent their turning my 
Hanks. We attacked them at 11 o'clock; and engaged them an huur 
and a half; on my ordering a charge; they retreated. We [nirsni'd 
them 7 miles and took 54 prisoners; 4 of which died that night. On 
our return we found 19 dead; and tho next day, several came in 
and surrendered, all of whom were \vi)\indcd, and we had r(>ason tu 
suppose that several died in the swam[)s, by accounts, we received 
from those who came in afterwards. Our loss was only 5 men 
wounded; one of which died; and 5 Iliirses killed; lx?sides a few 
wounded. We took 250 horses; nuist ni' which was loaded with 
effects they had plundered from the friend.s of the Government ; 
and as I had formerly ordered that wdioever found concealed goods, 
of any kind should keep them ; I also now ordered that every man 
should keep what he had taken that day, after mounting and equip-

treated. I lost twenty-seven men killed, and si.xly, so badly Wdund-

accepted them; and ilajor (Jraigg introdiice(l his Excellency, and 
J?egiment, to the l'ru\'ust Master. 1 am infurmed by letters from 
Col. Arch. McDngal, dated (ith of Aug., 178i), that uo provision lias 
been made for him yet. Also Major Rains, the 2iid of Oct'r, 1789. 
But I am in liopes when the Government comes to be iTifonned, of the ' 
many services tliat they have done, they will consider them, and 
make sume allowance for them. 1 am personally acquainted with 
their services, !^^ajur John Rains, was tlie first man, that tuok up 
arms within North Carolina; and the last man with me, and took 
an active part in command in si.x and thirty skirmishes in N. C. 
(also Capt. George Ruins). 

At the departure of my little anuy, I was left with three men; 
and in four days 17 more came to my assistance. I made encpiiry 
respecting the loss of the Rebels, in the late action; and funiid that 
the inhabitants had buried L' 1, and that the wuundcil the}' had left 
were UO, besides those that went ull' and that my party bad taken 10 
])risoners. Of the number uf the killed was Cul'o Liittrell, and 
Major Ivnowles, who were inveterate enemies tti the Loyalists. 

The ]5arty we had engaged 1 fuund consisted of fu\ir hundred Con- 
tinentals under the command uf Cubu ^laybin and Geu'l Butler. 
In twenty-fuur days 1 fuund myself able tu set u\k and then disjiateh- 
ed four uf my Ca])tains iluul;cr, Kains, Knight an<l Liiidly, tu Wil- 
minglon for a sujiply of ammunitiun ; and b('fure their return, I had 
sent out, and embodied l-tO men, diii'iiig which time I heard of a 
quantity of leather, wbii-li was prejiareil fur the use of the rebel army, 
and was ordered for Gen'l Green's quarters at Camden. I went to 
the place, and finding the leather agreeable to Jiiy information, I 
took enough thereof to equip the company com])letely, and ordered 
tlie rest to be destroyed. On my return to Bru.sh Creek, near where 
I had been secreted during my illness, occasioned by my wounds, I 
sent out sjnes for discu\'ery. Two uf them rettirned, in less than 
an hour, with the iiifurmatiun uf six huiidreil relieb. whu were ad- 
vancing for to attack me. liut they ]n'u\-ed nu murt' than 170. Their 
accounts disheartened a niind)er of my uwu. From my being in so

Sometime after the receipt of the foregoing letter T intercepted

near the lines ntJt far from Charleston; amongst which was Lord 
Cornwallis's capitulation, which 1 have sinci' \i><t. We continued in 
snndl ]iarties until Major Craigg evacuated Wilmington, when one 
day I took a man with me t(j go for intelligence and to provide oats 
for the party 1 kept with me. When at a house I spied a party of 
thirty rebels, coming towards said house; where I was. We instantl} 
mounted, and rode off. Oi] my ret\un to my men, 1 ordered sixteen 
of them, to mount ; and went back t(j the house wc had left, hut found

np with them. We killed three of them and wounded two; who I 
took prisoners. I had no loss (ir accident ,<n oiir part. 

I had now certain intelligence of Major (.'raigg's evacuating Wil-

During which time T luid iiiforiiKitidii, of a Capt. Kennedy ami his 
party, who had taken a munbcr of horses and a quantity of house-

f firing, took him and eight of his party, with the booty they had plun- 
dered. He gave intelligence that a Capt. Txipp with a party of sixty 
men, who had been discharged by Gen'i Rutherford were on their way 
ap the country. Ttie said ('apt. Kennedy (Cannady) all tlic time 
of our attacking Lopp stood ami looked on; and as he declared tliat he 

I' would not make his escape neither wo\ild he let any of his men inter- 
fere, if we drove off Capt, Lopp, I left him in a house with only two 
men, to guard Eleven, and found them all there. The guard in- 
formed me that he would not let any of his party make their escape, 
lie proved so much to his honour, that T gave him u{i one (jf his 
horses, saddle, and bridle; and paroled him with all his men. I 
liad at this time but thirteen men, with me at a House near the road 

^ where they were to pass. I mounted my men, and place<l them in 
concealment along the road. On their coming up, I ordered them to 
fire, and then to charge; wddch wo did, three times, through them;

we could n<it tell what injui'y they suffered.

him, and he would give them protection agreeable to proclamation; 
Rut on their assend)liiig, he made tliem prisoners of war; ami march-

and were going witli their own men, coutinnally tliroiigh the eonntry. 

During all this time I was in the woods and k(>pt moving with a 
small party as occasion re(iuired. One evening, I had assembled thir- 
ty men, at a friend's houHe, and sent out s))ies. '^1 hey snon retiiriie<l 
with the account of a jjarty (if rehels within f(jiir miles df us, dis- 
tressing and ]ilundering our fiiends. We iiiiiiiediately sel forward 
to render our assistance, and gut within a half a mile of liieiii; 1, 
then, sent out to get iiif()rniati(jn how th(;y wei'e situated, ami by break 
of day came upon them. We ri'took seven horses which they had car- 
ried off, with a large quantity of baggage. We wounded two of them 
mortally, and several of them slightly; wo came olf without injury 
except two h(jrses wcjunded. The day f(dlowing, we pursnetl them, 
to C'und)erland C(ninty, and on my way, I burnt ('apt. Ooxe's house, 
and his Father's. 1 had also two skii-mishes and killed two of the 
rebel party. On my return to Lillle Kiyer, J beard of a ('apt. 
Golson; who had l>een distrc'ssing tlie Loyalists; and went in search 
of him, myself; but unfortunately I did not niei't him; but f(dl in, 
with one of his men, who had been very assidmius, in assisting the 
rebels. I killed him. I mounted a nuin of my own on his horse, 
and returned back. 1 then took Capt, Currie and the man of my 
own before mentioned, and I went with a design of burning (.""ajjt. 
Golson's house; which I did; and also two others. In my way, I 
fell in, with a man, who had been very anxious for to have some of 
my men executed. I sent him word lor to moderate and be slitnild 
iiave nothing to fear, but if be persisted, I would certainly kill him. 
He took no notice of this; but persisted, for several months, and on 
observing me tluit day, he attempted to escape ; but I shot him. 

Two days after, Capt. Walker, joined me which nnulc four of us, 
and hearing that one Thom]ison, a Rebel and Magistrate, had takcji 
up a horse belonging to me, I went lo claim him; lie gave him u|i 
without hesitation, and n]ion examining what arms he had, h(i owned 
to one ritle, which I took from bini ; He also informed nii', (hat tiie 
rebels were willing to make ]icaee witii me on my own terms, and 
would allow me any limiled Ixiunds 1 would rccpiin^ ]u'o\ ided I would

Terms required by Colo. David Fanning from Govr. Burke, for- 
warded to him by Lawyer Williams, and Capt. Ramsay, of 1st bat- 
talion of North Carolina C(jntinentals. 

1. That every friend of the government shall he allowed to their 
resjjective Ikjuios unmolested. 

2d. 'I'hat they shall lie Tinder no restrictions of doing, or causing 
to be done any thing pi'cjudicial to his Majesty's service.

I recpiest that they may be immediately conveyed to me, at my quar- 
ters by a flag of true, appointed for that purjjose, and by such Otfi- 
cers, as I can rely upon, from your hands and seals. 

If these terms are not granted you may depend my sword being 
continually unsheathed ; as I am determined, I will not leave one 
of yoxir old offenders alive, that has injured his Alajesty's Govern- 
ment, and friends, who would have been of sei-vice to your country in 
a future day and I do hereby recommend it to you to govern your-

Sir: 

I received yours by Mr. Riggan at the Court IKuisc, on Sunday 
last, and immediately wrote to Gen'l Butler on the subject of your

llic best stej) to bring matters to an aceouimodation. The bearer, 
Mr. Riggan, has executed the trust you rc]i(isod in bini. T there-

Concerning your surrender Ctd'o Ray and ('ol'(j ]\IcDugald, have

I also received another letter from (^ai)t. Ramsay by another con- 
veyance. 

Jan. 8th, 1782. 
Sir: 

I saw a letter to Mr. Williams and observed what you say concern- 
ing my case. As to breaking iny ])arol, that 1 am clear of; as Major 
Craigg a few days before he left Wilmington sent a ])arty of dra- 
goons to where wo were paroled at the Sound and ordered us under 
the main Guard; whence I made my escape; which I am certain 
you will not Idame me for; as you ai'c well ai'ipiainted with my 
honour; when J was taken prisoiu.'r, 1 iiad it in my power to cscajie 
many a time; but as long as 1 was trcatcil liki' a gvnllcnian, or 
agreeably t(j the rules of war, I would rather sull'er death, than for- 
feit my honour. 1 observe what you say, concerning your parole; 
but the kind treatment I received at your hands, you may rely on it, 
any thing Mr. Williams or myself can do for you, in honour, shall 
not be wanting. Your letter I understood is transmitted to the 
Governor, who I niake no do\ibt will comply with your rcnpiest. 
For my part I wish for nothing else but peace. 

I am Sir your humble servant,

greatest reason to believe that yon will act on the same princii)lcs. 
No inhabitants of this county shall be molested either, in person or

Ill the course of this coi'res])ondi'nce, cndea\'ouring to make jieacc, 
I had reason to hcdieve they did nol intend to be as j^ood as their 
words; as thi'Ce of their people followed (.'apt. JJnley; and cut him 
to pieces witli their swords. I was iimiiedialid>- informed (d' it, and 
kept a look out for them. Fi\'e days after their return, [ look ihem 
niid hung them, by way u{ retalialion, both on the limb of the saino 
ti'oe; the third made iiis escape. Aflir lliis Coin. Alston, who was a 
prisoner of war, at this time, came to me, at Cenl. IJutler's recpiest, 
to know if 1 wa.s willing to eonu' to any terms. I asked the reason 
wliy the G<ivernor had not answered my letter, and wdiat was the 
cause of their behaviour to Ca]it. i.iuley: I, then, with a number 
of my OfHcers, set down, and wrote the fidlowing letter to General 
Butler : 

''Sir, On Friday the 7th of Jany, last I wiote to Mv. Williams,

(Mr. Baalam Thompson) acted as honourable, for the minute he 
arrived he let inc know it, and declared himsidf innocent. This 
gave me reason to think that he would act wiih honour; still on the

JOHN BUTLER, B. G. 

Ab.mt Ihe 7th of Marcli 17S2 Cajit. Walker and Currie, of the 
Loyal Militia fell in, with a ]iai-|y of Rebcds, and came to an en- 
gagement, and fired for some lime, 'till the rebels had iired all their 
anunnnilion; and then, wished to come to terms of jieace between 
each party; and no jilundering, killing or unirdering should be com- 
mitted by either ])ai'ty or side; which was concluded (ijjon by each 
Goloncd, for such certain limited Ijounds; which was to be agreed 
u]ion by each Gohmel ; and if tiiey could not agrt'c, each parly was to 
be neutral until matters was matle known, respecting the terms 
which they had to agree <in. Soon after my men came to me and 
informed what they had done; we received the rebel Col. Balfour's 
answer; that "there was no resting place for a lory's foot upon the 
Earth." He also innnediately sent out his party, and on the Kith, 
] saw the same coni])any coming to u certain house where we were 
fiddling and dancing. We immediat(;ly pre|)ared (jurselves in readi- 
ness to receive them, their jinniber lieing 27 and our nundier only 
seven; We immediately mounted o\ir horses, and went some little 
distance from the house, and conunenced a tire, for some considerable 
time; night coming on they retreattHi, and left llie ground. Some

and on the l^^th of Alavch, my men beinji' all ]iro|ierly eqiiippeil,

endeavonred t(] make his esca|]e; bnl we soon |ii-evented him, lirc'il at 
iiini, and wounded him. 'i'lie first ball he received was through one 
of his arms, and ranged througli his hotly; the other throngh his 
neck; which ]iiit an end to his commilling any more ill deeds. 

We also Wounded another of his men. We ihcn proceeded to their 
Colonel's (Collier,) belonging to said county of Randidph ; on our 
way we burnt several rcdxd Ikjuscs, and catched several ])risoners; 
the night coming on and the distance to the said Collier's, was so 
far, that it was late before we got there. lie made his cscaiie, hav- 
ing received three balls through his shirt. lint 1 took care to ilistroy 
the whole of his jtlantatitju. 1 then persiu'd our route, and came, to 
one Capt. John liryan's; another reb(4 ollicei'. .1 tohl him if he 
would come out of the house, I would give him jiarole; wdiich he re- 
fused, saying that, he had taken |iarole from l.cu-d ( 'ornwallis, swear- 
ing "by God! he lia<l broken that and that lie wtmld also break our 
Tory parole." With that 1 immediately ordered the house to be set on 
fire, which was instantly done. As soon as he saw the llanies of 
tlio fire, increasing, he called (jiit to me, and desired me to s]iare his 
house for his wife's and children's sake, and he would walk nut with 
his arms in his hands. 1 inuuediat(dy answered him, that if he 
walked out, that his house shoiihl lie sax't'd, J'oi' his wife and chil- 
dren. When he came mit, he said, ''Here, damn you, here 1 am." 
With that he received two balls thnuigh his body: He came out with 
his gun cocked and his sword at the same lime. 

The next day following l)cing- the llllb .Maich, was their election 
day to a])point Assembly men, and was to mei.'t at Kandolph Court 
House. 1 ]iroc<'e(led on in oi'der to see the gentlemen re|iresenta-

scattere<l ; I pre\'ented their cloiiig any thing that day.

On our way I catclu'd a coimuissary fi-cjin Salisbury wliu had some 
of my iiieii prisoners and almost jjorislicd them, and wanted to hang 
some of them. I carried him immediately to a certain tree, where 
they had hunj;- one of my men liy the name of Jaekson, and delivered 
him uj) to some of my men, who lie had treated ill when prisoners; 
and ihcy immediately hunt;' liini. Afti'r hanj^ini;- 15 minutes they 
cut him down. In the meantime there was al>o>it 300 rebels who had 
einlwdied themselves and eame after us; On account of the rainy 
weather our guns wouki not fire on either side. We were obliged to 
retreat, on account of their numbers l)eing so much sujierior. We 
had received no damage. About the Sth of A]d, a certain Capt. Wil- 
liams came into the settlement, and sent an old woman to me, and 
informed me that ho had arrived from Governor Burke that instant; 
and had come in order to see me ; which by her description, I and my 
little party immediately met him, and he informed me, that he had 
come to know if I was willing to come ujion the terms I had already 
presented; and requested to have from uudei' my own hands a true 
copy of them; that the (Jovernor would do everything in his power 
to have the same agreed u|)on by his C^)uncil and Assembly: for 
which purpose the said Williams was sent from the Governor. He 
also t(dd me, that the Governur had .-^aid that any thing I should do, 
or cause to be done, from the eharneter, he heard fi'om the British at 
Charlestown, that he had nut iho least doubt, ihey would assent to; — 
that he wished, to make peace with me; — saying that if I was taken 
a prisoner, and killed; that !<)() would ('ertainly I'lse their lives for it; 
and he looked upon it miieli better to come to terios of [leacc — that 
he heard in Charlestown, J was killed ; whi(di (jccasioned him to run 
away from Cliarlestijwii ; Upon which I gave iiiiu a co]>y of the ar- 
ticles which 1 wisbe<l to cunipl}- to. With whiidi he ordered the 
Light Horse to dejuirt to their dilferent stations, till they received 
orders from the Governor and Council. 

As I was oldiged to lay neutral until I received their answer, 
which was to l>e upon terms of hon(jur on both sides, as the dilferent

Sir : 

J, ii.s an officer in the behalf nf tlic State of North Carolina, have 
turned out, iu order to suppress any iiei'd(jns disturbing the peace of 
said State; but when I ariiveil at Deep River, 1 understood that you, 
and (.'aj)'ts Williams, ajid Duuuan, were about to make a treaty of 
peace; which I ap]irove of very well; and withdrew my frooji toward 
home. Hut my i^i-eat sur]>i-ise, o\\ ujy way, L learned that your nier., 
wei'e roiiliing tlie ]ieacefid and inoifensive ])e(iple of Cane Creek, and 
liiickey River; which wicked condnct, and tlu' j;'reat desire, I had, 
for tlie wcdfare of my Counti-y, induced me t4i slay, a little longer, 
and enilea\'or to stoj) siudi robbery. I Ihercforc wish to inform you 
that 1 ilid not pretend with an>- \'iew of making you any way dis- 
honourable, but many persons are ow ing true aUegiancc to the laws of 
(his State, are running at large; and call you their oifieer. As I 
ho))e you a gentleman, and will not iirotect any vagalicpud, I will 
tlniidv you, to let me know every ]iarticular of your 'J'reaty; what 

bounds you ha\'e; and u| tlie honour of a gentleman, i will not 

inlei'ru])t any pi'rsiui within .said b(uiiids, that is of good character 
with you. 1 would recommend, that yon ordei- Joseph Currie, and 
Rlair, to return the widow DixiJii's ]iropei'ty, whi(di they I'ldibeil her 
of; and I will not wrilr to the (io\ernor concerning it, as you want 
peace, lie would think very Utile (d' your honour, if he beard your 
men were robbing his people, after ymi bad petiti(meil t(j iiim.

To Col'o David Fanning. 

AlKiiit the 18th of April CaplaiiL Williams, canie to me, again, at 
Fork Creek and informed me that the original articles of treaty had 
been laid before the Govern. ir, and .\ssembly ; and lliey wei'c upon 
a e.uielusion of the terms I wanted; iiut were prevented by a Cidonel, 
wdio came from over the mountains and was oiu- of the: Assenddy, 
who did everything agaiirst it. Their objeclions were; the articles 
res])ceting the Continental s(ddiers taken U]), and they could not ab 
low any passports for an}' of the friends id' ihe go\crnment lo have 
any correspondence or conneclious wiib the llriiisb. JM-cry (ilhcr 
article they were willing t(j grant. Their Assembly continued nn 
the b\isiness for thi-ec day.s; as Mr. Williams inf.jrmed me. My 
answer was that 'T would forfeit ni}' life, before 1 would withdraw

any one of llie artirlcs, that J liai] jji-csi'iitiMl, as 1 wislictl to liold tlie 
same couiicctioii witli tlic Britisli, as furuKuly ;" I likewise tulil him 
tliat I had understood, tliat lliey had )>ieked out twenty four of their 
liest horses, and men, from Vii'ninia in (inler to ])ersiu' me, and my 
answer to Mr. Williams was "they mif;lit do their Ix'st and be 
danmed" as 1 was fully di'lerniiued (o still suppcnl my intej^'rity, 
and to exert myself in helialf of the l\ing and country more severer 
than I ever did." Willi this Mr. Williams dejiarted. 

I then set out for Chatham, \vhen 1 learneil a weddinj^ was to be 
tliat day. On my way I took one- prisoner, before T came to the 
house. There, being but five of us, we immediately surrouiuled the 
house in full charge. I ordered them, immediately out of the 
House; three of my men went into the house and drove them all f)ut 
one by one; T ciuiscmI fhi'ui all tu stand in a row to examine them, to 
see if I knew any of them that V'as bad men. I found one, by the 
name of William Dundy, eoneealeil up staij's. One (if my men fired 
at him; as be was running from one liouse lo the other; be received 
the ball in bis shoulder. I then ha\ing my ])i.-liils in my hands, dis- 
charged them b(jtb at his breast, with wbitdi he fell, and that niaht 
expired. I then paroled the rest, on the 25111. 

I concluded within myself, that it was betti'r fur me tu try and 
settle myself, Ijeing weary of the disaLiici'able mude of lixing I had 
borne with for some considerable time. Fur the many kindness an<l 
the civility of a gentleman \\bo lived in the settlement of Dee]) 
Kiver, 1 was induci'd to pay my addresses to bis daughter, a young 
lady of sixteen years of age. The day of ]\rarriage InMug ai)])oiuted; 
— on making it known to my jieople, Cap't William llooker, and 
Cai)tain William Carr, agreed tu be mari-ietl with me. They b(jth 
left me to make themselves, and iheii' inlendi'd wives ready. The 
day before, we wei'e to be C(.pU]ded, the Ueb(ds, before nuuiti(Uied, 
with those go(]d hor.ses, attacked ns (Cap't lluuker's burse being tied 
so fast he could not get him loose,) they ca\i<:ht him and murdered 
him on tlu- s})ot. Myself and ("ap't Cai'r, were nnirrieil ami ke]it 
two days merriment. The Rebels ihought they were suri! of mo 
then; however I took my wife and concealed her, in the woods with 
Cap't Carr's, and caused an oration lu be put out, that I was gone 
to Charlestown. In order to be convinced, the Rebels sent a n:an in, 
as a sjty, with two letters from Gen'l Ix'slie with instructions for me

had his name signed to it : 

CiiAiu.ESTOWN, 20th Jan., 1782. 
Dear Colonel, 

Altho I have not had the lia|)])iness nf being aciiuainted with you, 
yet I can apjiland you very mneh, for your B])irited eonduct and ac- 
tivity. The only ohjeetion T have to yonr eondnet, is yonr being 
too strenuous with those wIkj have Ix'en subjects to his ]\Iajesty, whom 
the Reliels have overcome and forced them to c(_)m])ly ^vith their laws. 
If you would let them alone, the severity of the Relxds Wijuld cause 
them to return to their allegiance again. But Sir since you have 
made so brave a stand already, ju'ay stand steadfast to tlu; end, and 
we shall be well rewarded at the last. Try to s]iirit up your men, 
and enlist, if ]iossible, three hundred men this s|)riiig, i-eady to 
join three hundred more; which shall be put under your coninuuid; 
and as many mon- as you can gel, and you be brigadier General of 
ihem. We sliidl, I hope in the monlh of May land 1,300 troops in 
Xortli Carolimi, .'iOO of your corp.s, 1,(;00 in the whole, to ai-t upon 
the defensive, until yon are reinforced. 

Keep good discipline among your troo]is, and keep out fellows, who 
will do nothing but jdunder. They ai'C but false dejiendence, and 
will not tight, lait only cori-u))t good men. iM'ei'y man y(ju enlist 
for 12 months, shall receive ten guineas; and a full suit of clothes; 
as soon as we land our troops, and llicy appear tuider your connmind 
ready for action. 1 can as.stiri' you, lis _\-our fame an<l worthy ac- 
tions has, through and h_y j\laj'r Craigg given, reachcil his ilajesty's 
cars, and I expect, perhaps by the next packet boat you will get a 
genteel present from our gracious Sovereign. So hojjing that you 
will be in the way of your duty, I will take leave of you, without 
mentioning your name, or subscribing mine, kist this might mi.scarry 
— the man who is entrusted with the care of this, dares not at present 
be seen in it; but a friend and send it to the man as is

FROM GEn'l LESLIE. 

Dear Sir : 

I would come to see you myself, but am afraid of the rebel light 
^ horse. I have a great many things to aequaint you with and a good 
I deal of good news, but dare not write for fear of miscarriage. If 
you have any desire of seeing me you mtist come soon away, instantly. 
Don't let the bearer know the contents of the letters — the fewer 
trusted the better. In tlic mean Time, 

I am your friend and serv't, 
Ap'l 29th, 1782. JOSEPH WILSON. 

To Col'n Fanning. 

My answer was in Maj'r Rains' name as follows: 

Sir, 

I am very sorry to think that there is so many damned foolish 
Rebels in the world, as to think Col'o Fanning would be ever de- 
ceived by STich damned infernal writings, as I have received from 
you. Col'o Fanning lias gone to Charleston, and is not to return 
here 'till ho comes with forces sufficient to defend this part of, the 
country. I would have you to disband ; and be gone immediately ; 
for if I ever hear of any one of your people coming witii any thing 
of the sort, I will come and kill them myself. I am in behalf of his 
Majesty's armies, 

JOHN RAINS, 
Major of the Loyal Militia. 

To Jos. Wilson. 

On the 1st of May 1782 I heard a wagon being in the road, I 
imagined she was going down to nuirket, as I heard of a number of 
wagons which was to proceed down with liquor to the market. On 
the 2d I mounted and persued the wagon, which 1 heard of tiie day 
before; as I was alxjut setting out for Charll■^l(lu I con^•ludcd to have 
a frolic with my old friends, before we parted. After riding alwut 
ten miles, I overtook the said wagon, wliich liclonged to a certain man 
who had been taken prisduci- and paruh'd by the Britisli ; and had 
broken his parole. In the mean time, I was examining his papers 
I set a eentinel over him. He knowing himself guilty, expected 
nothing but death. He took the oj)port unity, and s])rung upon my 
riding mare, and went otf with my saddle, hol.'^ters, pistols, and all

deliver up my mare, and jjropi'riy, eontaiuing my ])a])ers; for which 
ho wrote me the f(dlowing insolent letter: 

Sir, Col'o Fanning, I hope that yon do not hlame me for what I 
did. Hoping you will have merey on me, as I am wounded, and let 
my wife come to me. ^^jur mare shall lie returned to you without

I also received the following letter from Edw'd Williams, on the 1 
subject of the Mare:

On the 7th of May, finding I could see no opportunity of getting

left my wife, horses and negroes; as I was entirely a stranger to tlie 
situation of the country and roads, I was obliged to procure a pilot to 
proceed to Charlcst-own, I could not get one for less than 20 guineas. 
After my departure I fell in with the relnd dragoons coinnianded by 
Colo. Bailie, from Virginia. 1 was with tllom for about an hour; 
iiiirl informed iheiii thai we were S(iuie iif the ri'hcl [JUrty then on our 
way to General Marioii's head (|uarters. They never discovered 
Otherwise; it being in the dusk (if the evening. We fell in the rear, 
nnd went into the woods and struck onr camp, and pnjmised them we 
would see them next morning. ][owe\'er we pi'oeeetled on that 
night, and arrived at Herald's point on the 17th June, and I imme- 
diately ju'ocured a passage to ( Iharleslown, wiien 1 immediately ap- 
plied for a dag; to si'iid aftei- Mrs. Fanning and jirojjerty. The 
flag had left C'harlestown two <lays, when she came in, as Maj.

ceed to CharlestiAvn ; lie wnuld nol let her have any of <iur jiroperty, 
not even a negro tn wait on her. 

Soon after the Loyalists, That had got to (Jharlestown from diti'er- 
ent parts of the world hearing that the Southern ( 'olonies were to be 
evacuated by the Britisli forces, called a meeting to point out some 
measures to try to hold some foothold in the country, until we got 
some part ]iayment for our prii|)erty which we wia-e obliged to leave if 
wo ever left the country. Hand hills were ])rinted and stnck up 
throughout tlu> town for tin; Loyalists t(i chouse their representatives 
to represent our situation and tlu^ desire we had to supjxjrt ourselves 
and property. It was proposed that if) Gentlemen should be chosen 
a committee for that ])ur])oso. The day was a]j])ointed to take the 
vote. I was chosen amongst others; an<i drew u]) a ])etition and sent 
to Sir Guy Garleton, Commander in Chief; p]-aying the lil)crty of

I continued in Charlestown until the 5th of Sept, and my horses 
having got recruited, and one of my negroes having made his way 
good through the country, came down to me; I then set out for the 
country again, on account of my misfortune of losing my Mare, 
which was of oTeat value to me. I w.nt up to the settlement again,' 
to the man I sent to Hunter k^foro; i.nd, he inform.nl me, that Hunter 
refused five negroes for the uuire, and would not return her. He 
also, went to where, I left one of the negroes and took him and sent 
him over the mountains tfl keep him out of my way. I continued 
in the settlement until the 22d of the month, trying to get her but 
was disappointed in my hojies. luiowing that Charlestown was to 
be evacuated, I was obliged to return ; and as I was on my way, I im- 
■ derstood my mare was at a certain place, ab.-ut 125 miles from 
Charlestown; being alx>ut half the distance from where, I then was; 
and my riding horse was so i)articularly known, 1 sent a man up to 
the house and he was known ; they directed us the wrong way, and 
immediately sent word to where my mare was: I found out, we was 
wrong; and took through the woods, and to a house within half a 
mile, where they had word of my coming and vvas niaking ready to 
go to their assistance. On seeing us come uj., he immediately left his 
liorse, and was running off through a field; he turned around and 
presented his piece and snapi>ed ; but siie missed fire; With this, I 
ordered one of my men to fire at him, who shot him tiirougli tlie body, 
and dispatched his presence from this world. The other two men 
that was at the house did not run; and informed me that they had 
received word of my coming a half an hour before I arrived ; and 
also that there were men lying in ambusli ready to attack me. With 
this, as the man who had my mare iiad gone ofi' with her, and liaving 
only two men and my negro that set <,ut with uie from Charlestown'^ 
also two little negroes that J had for my mare, I thought it was my 
best way to proceed to Charlestown; and on the 28th Sept. I arrived

In a short time after I heard that tliere was another act of Parlia- 
ment passed to receive claims for losses and services, also that the 
Oommissioners had arrived at Halifax. On the iiOth j\hirch, I set 
oat for Halifax, and ])rcsented a copy of my claim, as follows: 

To the Honourable Commissioners appointed by act of Parliament, 
further to eiupiire into the losses and services of the Ajiierican 
Loyalists: 
Tho Memorial of David Fanning, late Col'o of tlio North Carolina 
Militia, hund>ly showeth ; That your JMeniorialist is a loyalist from 
North Carolina; who uniformly and religiously adhered to his duty 
and loyalty to the best of Sovereig-ns; for which he suffered perse- 
cution, and many other inconveniences — that your lyiemorialist, by a 
warrant from Major Craigg of the S2d Reg't then commanding at 
Wilmington was placed at the hcail of th(! Alilitia of that province — 
that, your memorialist during the late war, did command from one to 
nine hundred and iifty men; wilh whom lie was engaged in six and 
thirty skirmishes in North Carolina, and four in South Cai'olina ; all 
of which were of his own planning and in which he had the honour 
to coniuumd — that yo;ir Memorialist killed many of tlie Rebels — and

and foui-tccn times taken ])ri.soncr: That, on the conclusion of ]ieace, 
y(ini' MeuHirialist settled two hundred and lifty snuls in Kast Flcjrida; 
and Iniving tocik refuge in several |iarts of his iMajesty's renjaining

DAVID FANNING. 
St. John, March 1st, 1780. 

When i ]iresentcd my claim to Peter lluntei', Seci'ctary to the 
Commissioners; he gave me no kind of satisfaction, and on my ask- 
ing him if I c(jnld conld under an exauiination, he t(dd me to be gone, 
he did not think the Commissionei-s would receive my claim. When 
I found 1 could get no hearing at Halifax, at that time, I returned 
home with a full resolution never to troulile myself any more. At 
the time ni being in Halifax 1 met my old friend, Cap't John Leg- 
gctt, of the Royal North Carolina Regiment, Avho said he would speak 
to the Commissioners in my favour. He also gave me a copy of the 
following letter from Lieut. Col'o Arch McKay: 

ivONDON, Nov. inth, 1785. 
Dear Captain : 

Ever mindful of your good will and the kindness you showed 
unto me since I had the ])leasure of Ixdng acquainted with you, in- 
duces nie to write you a few lines at present informing you id' my 
success since I came to England, knowing you wu\dd be glad to hear 
of the provision made for me. When 1 came to luigland, I got a 
hearing by the Commissioners of American claims, and they granted 
me Thirty pounds, yearly for temporary subsistence. 1, then laid a 
memorial to Sir George Young, for Cajitains half jiay; but I must 
confess I th(3ught my chances for that bad enough, as 1 was not ac-

I 



quainted with any of tlie Generals who connnanJed in America; but 
since it was only amnscinent to try, I got a certificate from Col'o 
Craigg, and another from Col'o Hamilton; and laid them in with 
the memorial, it was with a good many others, a long time from Ottice 
to Office; at length they allowed me Seventy pounds sterling, yearly, 
for life for my services in America, cxclii.sivc (if t]i(} 'I'iiirty ])ounds. 
Upon the whole 1 do not re]Mnit coming to Lundun, as thijigs have 
turned out. 

^ I wrote to Cap't IMcNeil this mciriiing, nut thinking I slionld have 

it time to write to yun, Ijefore the Shi]i saiicil ; inid i liad nut time to 
write liim so fully, as I cnuld wi.-^li ; hut I will mind lK'tt<:r ne.xt 
time. 

I intend to spend next summer in Scotland, if every thing turns 
out here to my expectation. I would l)e glad to get a lung letter 
from you concerning yonr new settlements. You will please to write 
to me, undercover to Messrs. -lohn and Hc'ctor .McKay, A'o. 5, Crown 
(^ourt, Westminister; and if I am in l?ritain T sliall Ik.' sure to get any 
letter that may come for me. After my jaunt to Scotland J hope to 
do myself the honour to call and see you on my way to New Pruvi- 
|! dence, where Alex'r and Malcom iMcKay are gone. 1 am, Sir, with 
due respect. 

Your sincere friend & humble serv't. 
To ARClllBAiJ) McKAY. 

Oapt. John Tx'ggett. 

I returned home and continued until the 27th June, 17S7; wlien 
I was entering the suburbs of the city of St. John, 1 aci-ideutally uiei 
Ensign Henry Niss, with a letter, fi-om the commissioners, desiring 
me to attend immediately for an examination. I still retained .ny 
opinion; but on infoiining Col'o Josejih Robinson he prevailed witli 
me, after a long persuasion, to call and see the Commissioners; which 
I did ; in company with Col'o Robinson : I was treated with every 
civility and all attention paid to me. After my examination they 
gave mo the following certificate :

After this I received a letter from my vVuent and found I had lost 
jirojicrty to tlie anituiiit uf luKiiif) S 10 aeeurdint'- to an ajipraiseinent 
of three men aequainleil with the |]riipert_>-. iJiit, as it was not like a

one uf which cust mure than all 1 ever got frtiiii tlu! Government; and 
six licad uf cattle, t:.'M) fur property sold at the commencement of 
I he war, and the land wliicii I was heir to and for which I refused 
many times £liOO() \^ir<iiiiia currency. But because I turned out in 
llie service of my King and cuuulrv in tlie JOlli year uf my age, and 
my exertions were \'ery exemjdary, 1 have lost my all, for anil account 
of My attachment of the British ('ro\vn — only Sixty pounds received

1 can |)r(ive what I have here wmte tu lie fai'ts, and the world will

The Field Officers of the Regiment Rearrf Itaiik thus: 

James Innis, L'olonell, now goue to tlie L)liio Kxpodition. 

William Dry, Lieutenant Colonel. 

Thomas Jones, Formerly Major, but now has gi\en up his Com- 
mission, and John Ashe, being Eldest ('ajitain, now acts as AJajcjr 
to the Regiment, and has the best Rigiit to have a Commission as 
Major, and his Lieutenant now Ought iu have a Coiuniission to be 
Captain of the Sound Comjjany, whereof John Ashe was lormerly 
Captain. 

The Lieutenants and Ensigns were always made by the Field 
Officers and Commissions given tiiem from ihe t'onnnandiug Field 
Officer to act as Lieutenants & Ensigns. 

The Clerks, Corporalls & Serjeants are always made by the Cap- 
tain of Each Company. 

We have no Arms nor ^\jnuijition frcnii any of ills .Majesty's 
i. Stores belong to this Regiment, but are very much in want of a 
parcell to be Lodged near the Sea Slan-e for the Safely of the Lower 
parts of the River. 

We have no Indians whatever in our N'eighborhood Excepting 
f now and then a few Tuskeroras that cmiie and Hunt amongst ns and 
go away again, never above Six or Juglit ai a lime, and lluy but in a 
pore Condition of defence. 

My observations on the i\lelitia Law umv depending are as thus: 
Every Company to be obliged to meet ami lv\creise at least four 
times in a year as Common Musteis, and One a Year as General 
Muster. For Each Captain not attending at Common JMustcrs, 30s. 
Fines at Common Musters to bo Raised, \'i/.t. : For Each Frivate 
man, Gs. 8d; For Each J^ieuteuanl not attending at Conunon .Mus- 
ters to be hnd 20s. ; For Each Ensign jiot attending at Common Mus- 
ters to be find 15s.; For-Eacli Serjeant taking on himself that othee 
^ & not attending at Connnou Musters, Us. bd. 

Captains to Grant Warrants to SiTJeants to Le\'y the feese as 
, above and the Serjeanta to be Obligeil to Serve Such Wai'i-auts and 
to Receive for Each Warrant that lie S(.'r\es 4>. out of the goods so 
taken, or forfeit 20s. for every warrani ibat be Kel'u.io to Serve, to 
be Recovered by warrant of the ('aptain directcMl to another Ser- 
jeant 

And for those that do not Attend at General iMusters in their Sev- 
eral Othces to forfeit Double tlie Sunr as for Pi'ivate Musters.
