My Notes On This Group: The Roman Empire was the first to use troops all over the world they left blood groups ever where they went from Countries of Africa to England: The Roman Empire was one of the VAST spreading Empires in the World to first use troops of other Countries it conquered. The use of using other troops from Conquered Countries spread with each developing Empire.

Teal is being used for Quaker dates, these are not the same as the Julian Calender for all the other information, these need to be transcribed to be used in a Julian Calender.

 

Quaker dates have not been translated Before the 1752 calendar change, the first month of the year was March. From: Mary E. Stewart  

 

In 1752 the new year began to be counted from Jan 1. Before that it ran from March 26-March 25, Julian Calender changed. So a date in July 1750 would be earlier in the same "year" as one in Feb 1750 (which once 1752 rolled around, would be thought of as the next year). From: Barbara Schenck

1776-1883 ERA GIDEON JOHNSON Served From Anson Co NC

 

State of Tennessee, Williamson County

 

On this 2nd day of October 1832 personally appeared in open Court before the Worshipful Wright Stanley Joseph Crockett and Jabez Owen and George Shannon Esquires composing the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of Williamson County now sitting at Franklin, Tennessee, Giddeon [sic] Johnson aged seventy eight years 7th November 1832 who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of an Act of Congress passed

June 7th, 1832.

 

That I enlisted in the army of the United States some time in the last of the month of July 1776 for the term of twelve months under Capt. John Armstrong from Surry County, Lieutenant Joseph Tate from Guilford County in North Carolina. I resided in Guilford County N.C. at that time and joined the army in the County at a place called Spring Garden. Capt. Armstrong’s company joined the Second Regiment of the Continental line at Salisbury shortly after my enlistment, as well as I can recollect, which regiment was commanded by Col. Alexander Martin. We lay at Salisbury about three months

when we marched thence to a place near Hollisworth [sic, Hollingsworth?] mills on Duncan’s Creek which I think is a branch of the Catawba River. Receiving information that there was a body of Tories collected either on Rabin's Creek or Duncan’s Creek about fifteen miles distant. We were marched thither in the night and surrounded them near day break when we were fired on by their sentinels and our men closed in upon them and took, as was reported, 100 prisoners whom we marked to headquarters on Duncan’s Creek where we guarded them two days when they were sent to Charlestown

[sic, Charleston], South Carolina. Shortly after that we rendezvoused at Salisbury, I going by home by furlow [sic, furlough] whence I, in the company of Capt. Samuel Martin who had recruited a company of 50 men with some delinquents, marched to Charleston, S.C., where we joined the main army the latter part of the summer 1777. I in the meantime having been employed in assisting Capt. Samuel Martin in recruiting men, he being a recruiting officer of the U.S. army, and in scouting after the Tories

in N.C. On account of the sickness of the troops in Charleston we left that place, where I took sick, and was hauled to Campden [sic, Camden] in a wagon, where we lay 8 or 10 days. From that place the army marched towards Salisbury, N.C., and I being too sick to travel further was left at the Widow Sutton’s on Seven Mile Creek under the care of Sergeant Reuben Curtis. At the end of ten days I went to Charlotte, N.C., where I met with Capt. Samuel Martin with whom I traveled to Salisbury where I arrived about the last of October 1777 where I think I received a discharge signed by Col. Alexander

Martin, which I have lost not thinking it would ever be important to me.

 

Some years after this when Col. Alexander Martin was chosen Governor of North Carolina, the year I cannot recollect, it being necessary for him to have a life guard, I was chosen by him as one of his life guard and became such in Guilford County and marched with him thence to a place called Nutbush in Granville County where we, after remaining some time, were dismissed and returned home after an absence of about four weeks. Captain Josiah Gates commanded this company of Life Guards. It was represented to us when acting as his guard that that tour should answer as a three months’ tour but

whether I got a discharge for the same I do not now recollect.

 

In Dec. 1778 or winter of 1779, I carried an express from Col. James Martin of the County of Guilford to the western part of the state into Birk [sic, Burke], Burkum [sic, Buncombe], and Wilks [sic, Wilkes] counties and delivered the same to Col. and Maj. Ervin, Col. and Maj. McDowell and to Mr. Greenlea of Buncombe County. In this expedition I underwent much hardship on account of inclement weather and high waters and returned home after having been absent about four weeks.

 

I was born, as I have been informed by my father, in Amelia County, Virginia, on the 7th day of November 1754. I have a record of my age now with me which I got from my father and in his own handwriting. I lived in Guilford County, North Carolina, when I was called into service. Sometime after the Revolutionary War the County of Rockingham was taken off the north part of Guilford, in Rockingham I resided until 1819, when I removed to Davidson County, Tennessee, where I resided till

the year 1826 when I removed to Williamson County, where I have ever since resided.

 

I know of no person, except Abner Johnson1 and John W. Crunk, by whom I can prove my services personally, all my other companions in arms whom I have known in this country having departed this life. Neither have I any documentary evidence by which I can prove any said services.

 

I hereby relinquish every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declare that my name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.

Sworn to in open Court 2nd October 1832

S/ Thos. Hardeman, Clk.

 

State of Tennessee, Williamson County: Circuit Court January Term 1840

 

On this twenty second day of January 1840 personally appeared in open Court before the

Circuit Court of Davidson County now sitting, Gideon Johnson a resident of Davidson County and State of Tennessee; aged eighty six years, who being first duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832. That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers; and served as herein stated.

 

He entered the service in the month of June 1775, he thinks in the 7th Regiment of the

Continental line of North Carolina as a regular soldier under the command of Colonel Alexander Martin, in which there were four companies;

 

First company commanded by Captain John Davidson of Rowan County,

 

Second company and to which defendant belonged, commanded by Captain John Armstrong of Surry County,

 

Third company commanded by Captain __ [blank in original] Picket of Anson County,

 

Fourth company commanded by Captain John Bell of Guilford County, which four companies composed said Regiment.

 

Defendant states that he first turned out as a volunteer under Lieutenant Joseph Tate; who was Lieutenant under his Captain, John Armstrong, at Spring Garden, Guilford County, North Carolina, for a term of (he thinks) twelve months; rendezvoused in the latter end of the same month at Salisbury and (he thinks) left Salisbury in September following. While at Salisbury a dissatisfaction arose amongst the troops and a second enlistment became necessary and was proposed by Colonel Alexander Martin for a term of eighteen months for which time said defendant volunteered, he thinks about the last of July or first of August 1775.

 

The troops when leaving Salisbury were ordered south; kept headquarters at Hollingsworth’s Mills on Enoree River about four weeks after which the troops were ordered south on a meandering route to the Hickory Camps, he thinks, near the borders of South Carolina. From thence he thinks in the month of January following; they were informed there was a company of Tories collected on Duncan’s Creek, to which place the troops were ordered and marched under the guidance of our informants. On

our arrival at said Duncan’s Creek we had a small skirmish with the Tories – they fled, save 300 prisoners we took and marched back to Hickory Camp, guarded them there two days and nights, thence they were sent to Charleston, South Carolina, under a guard of militia. From Hickory Camp we marched south in the direction of Ninety Six through the country watered by Tiger [sic, Tyger] river, Congaree, Wateree [River] &c, falling down below Ninety Six. There we bent towards Bell’s Mills on Deep river in the direction of Fayetteville in North Carolina; thence we returned to Salisbury where we

stayed five or six weeks, and where many of the troops were furloughed for a small space of time.

 

We were from there marched to Charleston, through the swamps of Santee River, and arrived at Charleston some time in August just in time to see the British embark, when they evacuated Charleston or Sullivan’s Island, near Charleston, where we continued until (I think) the latter end of October following, occupying the old British Barracks, from which place we were then ordered to march in consequence of the bad health of the troops, of whom many had died. On our first or second days marched at night going towards Camden on Goose Creek, deponent for the first time was taken sick

and put in a waggon, he thinks, about twenty miles from Charleston; and hauled from there to Camden, he thinks, 130 or 140 miles – there in consequence of sickness of the troops we lay about three weeks, some two or three men died there. From there we marched to Seven Mile Creek at Widow Suttle’s. Deponent was given out for dead and left in the care of Sergeant Reuben Curtis for an attendant. Deponent thinks he lay here about three weeks, from whence defendant started alone, leaving his gun,

shot bag, and belt, not being able to carry them, has never heard of them since. He pursued the army alone (having left Sergeant Curtis sick) to Charlotte in North Carolina; where he stayed with Samuel Martin, about two weeks. From thence by the assistance of the said Samuel Martin, he went to Salisbury, where he joined the remaining fragment of his Regiment, he thinks, some time in the month of November 1776. After remaining at Salisbury a short time defendant, by permission of Colonel Alexander Martin, left for his home in Guilford County, being very weak; arrived there he thinks in November; near the latter end. He afterward saw Colonel Martin who gave him a discharge, his term of

eighteen months being ended.

 

Some time in the month of January or February in the year 1777 or 1778 declarant was engaged by Colonel James Martin of the Militia of the County of Guilford to bear some expresses, he thinks to Joseph and Charles McDowell living in Wilkes County, North Carolina, both bearing commissions in the United States service, and to Major Alexander Erwin and Major Green Lee living he thinks in Burke County and state aforesaid, for which service Colonel James Martin gave him a discharge for a

term of three months served as a militiaman.

 

Deponent thinks in the month of May, June, or July 1779 he again volunteered as a life guard to Colonel Alexander Martin, to guard and convey him to Wilmington, he being appointed Governor of the State of North Carolina to fill the place of __ [blank in original] Governor3 who was taken prisoner by the British; in consequence of some express which Col. A. Martin met, we did not escort him quite to Wilmington. Josiah Gates being Captain we marched back to Guilford, for which service declarant

got from (he thinks) Colonel Martin a certificate for a three month term of service as a militiaman.

 

Deponent further states that he was at home plowing in his field, when he heard the firing of the cannon and plattoons at the battle of Guilford on the 15th of March, he thinks, 1781 or 1782. He immediately took out his horses, seized his gun and hastened hither, though not at that time in service himself he had a substitute (Elise Curray). He met the baggage waggons near Guilford making their way to a safe place out on Dan River. He turned around and led them on till he knew they could not mistake the way. He then hastened to the place of action and joined his country men in that engagement. It having nearly ended, reconnoitered and assisted in burying &c for about nine days. This

service was voluntary for which deponent has no receipt; nor did he expect, demand or wish any.

 

Deponent had been previous to this summoned as a guard to the Legislature at Salem in North Carolina in which service he was engaged about three or four weeks. The receipt from Colonel James Martin and the lost receipt from Colonel A. Martin making in all a term of two years service. He viewed said documents as being of entirely useless to him and he thinks he destroyed the same in the year 1819 when he left Carolina to remove to Tennessee in Davidson County where he now lives and has lived ever since.

 

Deponent further states that his name is already on a pension roll of the agency of the State of Tennessee, was placed there on the 20th day of August 1833 and receives a pension of fifty dollars payable semiannually; that said pension is not proportionate to his term of Revolutionary services for the want of living testimony to the facts herein before stated. That he has since making application before found living witnesses of whom he did not know, which accompanies this declaration. Many

things have also come to his own recollection since, which are true and not named in his former declaration.

 

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and he declares that his name is listed on the pension roll of an agency of the state of Tennessee in the amount

stated above. S/ Gideon Johnson
