That he entered the service of the United States under the following named Officers and servied as hereafter states. He was drafted under Captain Spencer Shelton for a three months tour he thinks in August 1780 he being then a resident of Pittsylvania County Virginia, and marched in that company as soon as it was organized to Halifax Courthouse, Virginia, and he stayed there some time waiting for further orders. And afterward was marched into Granville or Coswell County of the State of North Carolina, and after remaining there some time he was discharged. The precise time he was in actual service during this tour he does not remember. In January 1781 he volunteered in the company of Rifleman commanded by Captain Thomas Smith in the County of Pittsylvania and State of Virginia. That he immediately marched in the same company and joined the Continental wing in the State of North Carolina and was attached to the Infantry in the corps of Col.

Also Col. Morgan and Col. Washington of the Continental Army. The Americans retreated with some in considerable loss. How long hr remained in service during that tour he does not exactly recollect having lost his discharge, but is under the impression that he returned home some time in the month of March in that year. Sometime in the month of August 1781 he was drafted in the County of Pittsylvania and Sate of Virginia, in a company commanded by Capt. Charles Hudgins and immediately marched in this said company to Yorktown Virginia and joined the Continental troops. Capt.

Wood Jones, which discharge is herewith exhibited and bears date of 20th Oct. 1781 He has no personal acquaintance with any of the Continental Officers commanding at Yorktown, but frequently saw General Washington and Gen. Lafayette who were pointed out to him by some persons who knew them, and he frequently saw many other Officers of this Continental line but does not remember their names. He cannot say the precise time he servied in all but believes it was not less than eight months. He has no documentary evidence, save this discharge documentation, or verbal evidence with his mark to prove his services. He was born in the County of Pittsylvania and State of Virginia according to the (?)Reg---- of his parents on the 11th day of March 1762 and raised in that County till April 1823 when he removed to the County of Patrick where he now lives.
