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

State of No. Carolina} Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions Aug. Co. AD. 1833

Warren County}

 

On this 29th day of August A.D. 1833 personally appeared before the Justices of the

Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions for the County & State aforesaid now sitting – Joseph Johnson of the County of Halifax No. Carolina, aged Sixty nine years who being first duly sworn according to Law, makes on his oath the following amended declaration (the one heretofore made having been returned for informably[?]) in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by Act of Congress passed June 7th 1832 –

 

Declarant states that he was born in the County of Bute (now Warren) in the year 1763 as he believes altho’ he has no means of ascertaining the fact save by reference to a record of his sister’s age. He was drafted in the militia service on the 10th day of Feb’y 1781 on a Tour of Three months – as to the time he was drafted he states it to the best of his belief – but he has no doubt it is accurate because it is confirmed to the very day by Frank Riggan [pension application S9054] whose affidavit is hereunto annexed – and who together with Frederick Shearin [S7495] whose affidavit is also annexed – was drafted and served out their Tours with this Declarant. We marched first to Harrisburg Granville Co. N.C. thence by Oxford to Hillsboro [sic: Hillsborough] – thence to the High Rock Ford [in Rockingham County] on Haw River – Thence to Guilford C. House N.C. where we met the enemy and an engagement ensued [Battle of Guilford Courthouse,

15 March 1781].

 

His officers names as well as recollected – following. Capt. Jordan Harris – Col.

Herbert Haines and Gen’l. Thomas Eaton. After the Battle of Guilford we were ordered to rendezvous at the [Troublesome] Iron Works from which place we marched to Ramsey’s Mills [in Chatham County] on Deep River. The enemy had some time before passed over on a temporary bridge made of rails or riders From Ramseys mills we were marched to a place called Abernathy, near Wake C. House near Raleigh. here we were discharged on the 10th May 1781 – our Three months having expired.

 

Within a few days after his return from the service as above he volunteered on a Tour of three months under one Capt. John Colclough[?] of Warren Co.John Benton Lieut. & James Powell Ensign. he was marched to Halifax N.Ca and was kept there guarding the Magazine until his time expired. he went to Halifax in July 1781 & was disch’d in October of that year.

 

As soon as he was discharged he immediately volunteered on another Tour of Three months. this was in Octo’r 1781 under one Capt. Joel Sherwood of No Hampton Co. [sic: Northampton County] N.C. Under Capt. Sherwood he was first marched to Tarboro NC. from thence to Johnson [sic: Johnston] C. House N.C. – thence to Fayetteville – then called Cross Creek – thence to Wilmington where we joined the forces of Gen’l. [Griffith] Rutherford & Gen’l. [John] Butler. Cornwallis was taken at York sometime before this [Yorktown VA, 19 Oct 1781] – but the enemy still infested this part of N.C. & the Tories were very troublesome. he was disch’d early in Jan’y

1782 at Buford’s Bridge near Wilmington – peace being made & his time having expired. Thus making in all Three Tours of Three months each. He knows of no person by whom he can prove these last Tours & his discharges have been lost. In all his Tours he served as a private soldier.

 

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a Pension or annuity except the present and he declares that his name is not on the Pension list in any State or Agency whatever.

Sworn & subscribed in open Court. Joseph Johnson his X mark

1764 Nov 19:Joseph Jefferis mortgaged his livestock and furniture in Bute County to Charles Johnson on 19 November 1764 [Wills & Inventories 3:12, by Kerr, Warren County Records, 2].

1749-54, "Joseph Jeffries a mullatto" in Southampton County when the court ordered the churchwardens of Nottoway Parish to bind out his children [Orders 1749-54, 388]. He was a taxable head of household with (his brother?) John Jeffries in Granville County, North Carolina, in the summary list for 1755 [CR 44.701.23], and he and his wife Ruth were "mulatto" taxables in the Cross Road District of Granville County in James Paine's list in Robert Collier's household in 1761 and in Thomas Hawtorn's household in 1762 [CR 44.701]. He mortgaged his livestock and furniture in Bute County to Charles Johnson on 19 November 1764 [Wills & Inventories 3:12, by Kerr, Warren County Records, 2]. He and John Jeffreys were insolvent taxpayers in Bute County in 1769 [Miscellaneous Tax Records in N.C. Genealogy, 2431]. Joseph was taxable in Warren County on an assessment of 59 pounds in 1779 and taxable in Captain Colclough's district from 1781 to 1785: 610 pounds assessment in 1781, 83 pounds in 1782, taxable on 140 acres and poll tax in 1784, 2 polls in 1785, perhaps identical to Joseph Jefferson who was taxable on 196 acres and no polls in 1788 [1779 Assessments, p.2; Tax List 1781-1801, 17, 27, 63, 81, 97, 156; L.P. 64.1, p.19]. http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Jeffery_Johnson.htm

State of Tennessee, Fentress County, on this 28th day of January 1833

 

This day personally appeared before the worshipful Justices of the Court of Pleas and quarter sessions for the County aforesaid now setting, which is a court of record, James Johnson a resident citizen of the County of Fentress in the state of Tennessee aged 73 years agreeable to his record as kept by his parents and himself in his bible, which is now destroyed, and after being duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of congress passed the 7th day of June 1832.

 

That he entered the service of the United States in Caswell County, North Carolina a private to serve a nine month tour, the precise time as to date of entering said service not recollected, but it was the month of May and about 12 or 14 months before the Battle of Stono. Applicant understood that said call of nine-months men were to be balloted for out of the different captains' companies, but when the different companies met at John Hughes in said County of Caswell the field officers nominated and appointed seven men out of the captains' company to which applicant belonged, namely William

White's company, the other six men that were appointed to serve out of Captain White's company were William Allen, George Anderson, James Wadkins, John Wadkins, James Swinee [sic, Sweeney?], Thomas King, and the men that were appointed in the different captains' companies met at the house of William Prowel's in said County of Caswell and there chose Robert More [sic, Moore] captain. There he was put under said captain and Col Arch Little [sic, Archibald Lytle] and Major Dixon, his first name not recollected, and Adjutant Mikel McMullinshehe [sic ?]. They were marched from said Prowel's to Moon's Creek in said County and stationed there four or five weeks and from there to Peytonsburg, Virginia and then stationed there about two or three weeks, and returned to Moon's Creek, joined no other troops and was furloughed until the last day of the next March with an understanding that when we met that the time we had served was not to count as part of the nine months tour, but previous to the time our furlough was to expire, there was a call for militia and a great part of us nine-month men went out on that tour, but this applicant did not; and according to the stipulations of applicant's furlough he met at the house of Col William Moore's in said County of Caswell and was there put under a Major Tatum, his first name not recollected. There was about twenty of us nine months men of Caswell County put under Major Tatum a great part of them being then out on militia tour, applicant marched off under Tatum and joined head quarters at Galphin's in South Carolina and there joined General Lincoln's Army [Benjamin Lincoln] stationed there a few days and marched on through the country to many places under General Lincoln until the expiration of applicants tour. They marched to a place about five miles from Stono, and camped about four weeks at the camp ground before the noted Battle at Stono applicant was in said Battle on the left wing Lieutenant Charleton commanded the platoon that applicant was in when he was marched into battle, said Lieutenant was shot through the belly and died. There was two of the mess of applicant killed in the Battle, to wit: Thomas Searles and Benjamin Haguewood. Applicant was of the third regiment of North Carolina Troops and being of a remnant of the nine-months men was frequently transferred from one captain to another in the regiment to supply the occasional losses that happened in different companies. McCajah [?] Parker was adjutant of the regiment that the applicant served in [one line at top of page is lost] in some .few days after the battle at Stono applicant was marched with the Army on to General Bull's, Staid there about two weeks and then marched to Bacon's Bridge, staid there a few days and thence to Moncks Corner and thence to Charleston and stationed there about one month and we was then marched to Sullivan's Island. Applicant and some few more about forty five in number we was then under Capt Ramsey, staid there about one month, and marched back to Charleston and there staid until we was finally discharged on the last day of November ensuing after the Battle of Stono, the dates not remembered. Applicant received a printed discharge at the Barracks at Charleston expressing that it was for a nine months tour agreeable to an act of assembly. His discharge expressed that he was of the third Regiment and of the north Battalion we of the nine months men were called the new Levees and was not mixed with the militia but served with the regulars and when we nine months new Levees were discharged our sergeant William McCarty called us out from among the regulars and we were discharged accordingly by him for a nine months tour having served two months previous to that last tour for which he had no discharge; being all the service rendered by him in the War of the Revolution against the enemy of his country.

 

Applicant from the information of his parents was born the 10th day of May 1759, about eight miles from Murfreesboro in North Carolina near Virginia line, he is not certain the name of the County. Lived there until 14 years old and then moved to the place where he lived when he entered the service and continued there until three of four years after the end of the Revolution and then moved to Lawrence Co [sic, Laurens] South Carolina, staid there about ten years thence to Pendleton County in said state, there about nine years thence to Buncombe County, North Carolina, staid there near seven

years and thence to where is now Fentress County, Tennessee, where he has lived ever since. Applicant's discharge has been lost a great many years and he knows of no military evidence and knows of no person by whom he can prove his services nor any particular circumstances connected with it, further than is believed from his own tradition, applicant can prove his character as a soldier by William Smith & Daniel Spurlin and others -- they being his neighbors.

 

He hereby relinquishes every claim to a pension or annuity except the present and discloses his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.

Cole [sic, William Temple Coles]. That said Company was attached to the Regiment commanded by Colonel Sexton, that said Regiment was attached to the North Carolina line, on the continental establishment, he enlisted as aforesaid in the month of April 1776 during the war.

 I William Hill Secretary of State in & for the State aforesaid do hereby certify that it

appears from the musterrolls of the Continental line of this State in the revolutionary war, that Crawford Johnston [sic] was mustered as a private in Captain Coles’ Company of the 4th Regiment on the 11th of April 1776 for the war -- There is no remarks opposite his name, I cannot therefore say any thing as to the length of time he served –
