BIOGRAPHY


In late 1779 or early 1780 Reece Gullet volunteered for a term of 18 months and that the Battle of Guilford Courthouse was in the last 6 months of his service; he was present at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse [15 Mar 1781] and received two wounds upon his head by a sword and the other in his thigh by a ball. He volunteered under Capt. Jesse Evans in the neighborhood at Chiswell's Lead Mines, remained at said Lead Works about the year when Captain Evans left with his regulars for the Falls of the Ohio. Captain Isaac Taylor arrived and took the command of the volunteers or Militia in place of Captain Evans. Shortly after he proceeded under a volunteer Captain by the name of William Montgomery to Guilford Court House in North Carolina where he arrived the evening before the Battle at that place and went into Battle next morning and was badly wounded and recollects very little of what took place. His pension was rejected – did not serve 6 months

IN THEIR OWN WORDS


From Pension: When called into service I lived in the State of Virginia then Montgomery now Wythe County. I moved from Virginia to Tennessee then a Territory and about 15 years after the Revolutionary War and resided in Tennessee until 1817 as I believe but my memory is so imperfect that I recollect but very imperfectly. I removed to Alabama in 1817 I believe and am so informed where I have since & do now reside.
