According to his application, he entered service as a militia man about the commencement of the revolution and made a short tour from Granville County North Carolina to Hillsboro, and there employed a substitute and returned home, names of officers not recollected. He made a second tour from Granville County (N C) to Camden South Carolina (the year not recollected) believes the Captain's name was Tatom or Hicks, was in the Regiment of Colonel Reed, and joined the Army of General Greene before reaching Camden, he was not in the battle at Camden having been sent off to guard the baggage which was in hearing of the battle.
