Notes: Multiple patriots by this name listed in Peden and DAR records making it difficult to assign service and other details to a specific patriot. This patriot would have been 65 years old in 1780 making it unlikely that he would be serving actively in the militia at that age but the military service details listed above do not fit the other patriots by this name.
