    against the Tories in South Carolina, we were scouring the country up and down Broad River, and then we were marched [to] a River called Green River the names of the counties not recollected, we caught and took Prisoners some Tories at the High Shoals of Broad River and sent them to Salisbury, we caught and Took Prisoners many Tories in other places, and all were sent to Salisbury who did not join the service, some Joined the service. In this kind of service under Samuel Martin as Captain he served
    for three months and was then discharged at Beatties Ford on the Catawba River and received a

    militia & served a three months Tour, he met at Warrenton and was then marched to a place called Miller's old place to me other Troops.

    about that place for some time until the month of May & this affiant was one who remained under General Butler. From thence was together with the Troops marched to Wake Court House in the County of Wake North Carolina and from thence on to Abernathy's not far distant where he and the other Troops were discharged, having served three months. He received a discharge but has long since lost it. He is unable to prove his first Tour of three months because he knows of no one now alive who was with him. He therefore has to rely on his own oath to establish it. As to the second Tour, he can prove and does hereby prove by the oath of Francis Riggan1 & Frederick Sherrin [sic, Shearin2] that he
