That he enlisted in the Army of the United States as a private in the year 1777 with Colonel Leonard Marbury a Recruiting officer then in the State of Georgia for the term of 18 months, but the month or particular time of that year, this declarant does not now recollect, having failed much in recollection by reason of old age and infirmity. That he served under said Colonel Leonard Marbury in Captain Robert Middleton's company, and one Travis as Lieutenant, he being then when he enlisted about 17 or 18 years of age having been born in the State of Maryland and while young his parents moved into the State of North Carolina, from thence they removed to the State of Georgia, during this term of 18 months for which he was enlisted, these troops was employed the most of the time in the frontiers of Georgia as scouting parties, for holding the Tories and Indians in check, that some short time before his term of service expired, he was taken sick with the pleurisy and returned home on furlough, but in a short time Recovered again and join his company in the same Regiment under said Colonel Marbury where he continued until he was discharged by his Officers after having fully and faithfully served the 18 months for which he was enlisted. That during this time this declarant states he was in no Action with the Enemy but was at all times ready to risk his life for his country, and he further saith that at the end and term of his service he was regularly discharged by his Commanding officers, but has lost his discharge, the date of which he cannot now recollect but to the best of his knowledge it was in the year 1779.

      This declarant further states that Luke Marbury who was then living in the State of Georgia at the time of this service recollects facts and circumstances of his entering into the Army for the 18 months and of his leaving it by being discharged, has deposed to the same, which Certificate and affidavit is hereunto annexed, And he further states that Eleanor Moore was also then living in the neighborhood, has deposed the facts, also hereunto annexed, but being at the distance of near 700 miles from the scene of action where these things occurred, he knows at present of no other positive proof, he neglected to preserve his papers of discharge and knows of no documentary evidence positively which can testify to his service. This declarant further states that after he was discharged from the Tour of 18 months he was twice called into service in the militia under the United States in the State of Georgia and did serve 2 militia Tours, which he is now unable to prove and for which he claims no compensation -- that about the close of the Revolutionary war he removed again into the County of Roan [sic, Rowan] in North Carolina and lived there till the year 1810 from thence he removed to the State of Tennessee and now resides in the County of Haywood. He relinquishes hereby every claim whatsoever to a Pension or an annuity except the present and he declares that his name is not on the Pension Roll of any agency in any State.
