Many of the members of our family at the age of 20 - 40 probably served in the Revolutionary War. Many of the records however were destroyed during the attacks on Virginia by the Union Army during the Civil War. Just because there is no listing here or in the Archive Records, does not mean they did not serve. However, there is equally no proof that they did.

County dodged British invasion

By Roy Parker Jr.
Contributing editor
Along with the flowering dogwood, the early spring of 1779 brought sighs of relief to the Patriots of Cumberland County.

It appeared that they, and all of North Carolina, had dodged a bullet, at least for the time being.

The threat of a British invasion, which had so alarmed the previous six months of the fifth year of the American War of Independence, abated.

The month of May 220 years ago brought welcome news that the British and their Loyalist allies were falling back from a short-lived siege of Charleston, returning to their base at Savannah, which they had seized in December of 1778 as part of Britain’s new “southern strategy” for victory over the Patriots.

But June brought a sobering footnote promising that the war was far from over in the South.

Gen. Benjamin Lincoln’s little army of Continentals and militiamen, marching on the heels of the British force, was badly bloodied by the Redcoat rearguard in a sharp fight at a river crossing known as Stone’s Ferry.

In a quirk of history, the British heroes at Stone’s Ferry would become a household word in Cumberland County.

They were men of the 71st Highland Regiment, a unit that in the next 30 months would fight across the Carolinas, march through Cross Creek with Lord Cornwallis in 1781, and surrender at Yorktown.

Forty years later, a township in Cumberland would be named in honor of the kilted Redcoats.

The British presence in the South was doubly threatening to Patriots of Cape Fear, who rightly surmised that simmering Loyalist sentiment would flare into open defiance as it had three years earlier, only to be thoroughly suppressed at the Battle of Moore’s Creek.

Some Loyalists from the area were already in the fight.

The British forces in Savannah included units of Loyalists, among them the North Carolina Royal Regiment under Lt. Colonel John Hamilton.

Some men from the Cape Fear region were serving under Hamilton’s royal flag, and may have taken part in the shootout at Stone’s Ferry.

The threat of British invasion turned Cross Creek into a busy staging point for North Carolina militia units called out by Gov. Richard Caswell and ordered south to join Benjamin Lincoln’s army.

Cross Creek merchants acting as commissary officers did a brisk business provisioning units marching from as far away as the Chowan River valley.

The operations of the provisioning system were evident in a letter that Caswell wrote in June to Cross Creek merchant Peter Mallett: “Find enclosed a warrant from the Treasury for $5,000 which I request you immediately apply to purchasing flour, grain, for the Continental Troops and militia who may make your way to the southward.

“You will also be pleased to provide them flesh provisions from the public stock.

“I should have wrote you on this subject sooner, but it was til very lately altogether uncertain if these articles would be necessary at Cross Creek.

“Let me to entreat you to give every assistance in your power to the troops on their march.

“Col. Lamb, with a party of men hired by the militia will, I suspect, be with you in a few days.”

The summer of 1779 saw a return to less hectic times for the village’s few hundred residents.

The county government, holding its quarterly session in July, attended to an agenda of mostly peaceful pursuits, such as laying off roads and approving tax collectors for the various “captain’s districts.’’

There was even time to levy a fine of five pounds on one John Murphy “for being drunk on jury duty.”

Until he paid up, Murphy was to be “taken into custody.”

But there was also war-related business. The court proceeded to prove that Patriots were still firmly in control of local affairs in Cumberland.

Even with the Loyalist rumblings under way across the Carolinas, the Patriot county government proceeded to enforce a “confiscation act’’ seizing the property of Loyalists who had already left the county.

Perhaps meeting in a new courthouse on Maiden Lane in “Upper Campbellton’’ (the new official name for Cross Creek), the justices of the peace who comprised the local county governing body appointed three notable Patriots as “commissioners of confiscated property.’’

They were taverner George Fletcher, merchant Pat Travers, and planter Thomas Armstrong. The latter, who did not live in Cross Creek, failed to make it to meetings, and was replaced in October by John Matthews.

By August, the alarms from South Carolina were so muted that a body of mounted militiamen stationed at a “camp near Cross Creek” since earlier in the year was disbanded.

Its commander, Lt. Col. James Thackston of Orange County, reported to his superior, Brig. Gen. Jethro Sumner, on his collateral duties organizing militia units for the southward march.

He wrote:“I have just finished discharging all the soldiers whose time has expired on the first and fifth of this month.

“Those whose times does not expire until December next, and the old soldiers, we by order of Gen. Lincoln, formed into companies, officered and sent to Charleston, a return of which, together with a return of the Brigade for the last month, you will receive withall.

“All arms and accouterments in possession of the men now discharged have been sent to the assistant quartermaster general in South Carolina, except for about 30 stand that were went with the prisoners (apparently deserters) to Salisbury.

“By order of Gen. Caswell, the whole brigade was mustered out and paid off, up to the last day of this month. I will send (muster rolls) to you. In the hurry of business, Lt. Col. Lytle, who was appointed muster of the regiments (when he left me), carried them off with him.

“I was under the necessity when before I left headquarters of applying to Gen. Lincoln for money, on the account of this state, to purchase necessaries for the officers on the march home, which was cheerfully granted, to the amount of $4,180, which sum I put in the hand of Col. Madearis, to enable him to furnish the requisites.

“I have had a very troublesome and tiresome time of it since you left, but I have at length got through with it, I hope to your satisfaction.

“I have given orders to all the officers to come in with the men now discharged to be diligent in apprehending deserters who may be lurking in the counties adjacent to the places where they are until they receive further orders from you.”

With that, the 1779 Cross Creek military establishment of the War of Independence shut down for the season.

State of North Carolina
County of Guilford
     On this 20th day of November AD 1832 personally appeared in open court before the court of pleas and quarter sessions for the county & state aforesaid (being a court of records) Massy C. Medaris aged Seventy Seven years and then was, a resident of the county of Guilford and state aforesaid who being first duly sworn according to law doeth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed 7th of June 1832 ---- That he entered the bond of the United States under the following named officers and served as follows - Some time in the summer of 1780, he became a volunteer in the county of Chatham in which Cty he then resided under Col. Littrell & Capt. Richardson and was marched from the barracks near Chatham Court house for the purpose of joining the Southern army under Genl Gates. He was marched to Coles bridge on drowning creek when given men from each of the three companies under Col. Litrell was detached to remain at that place and collect buf 1 and provisions, and establish a store for the supply of the army, this declarant was one of the seven detached from Capt. Richardsons company, and remained at Coles bridge till after Gates' defeat at Camden. The rest of his company went on to the South, and many returned as a company to his knowledge. After Gates defeat, this declarant and the company with him marched back in Chatham County to Ramsey Mills where they were put under the command of Col. Ramsey & Capt Gregory, from Ramsey's Mills he was marched by Col. Ramsey, down into the county of Wake & Granville with two hundred & fifty head of cattle and a large number of hogs which Col. Wade had brought on from SC. The object of taking this circuitory 2 route was to prevent their provisions from falling into the hands of the British army which was at that time lying at Hillsboro. In the county of Granville this declarant to parting with the rest of Col. Ramseys men was joined by Genl Eaton with forces going to join the army of Genl Greene, with whom he marched to the High Rock where he joined Greens Army. From this place this affiant was marched with Genl Greens army to the old iron works when he was discharged two days before the battle of Guilford.
     This declarant volunteering for the term of three months, but actually was in service at this time for upwards of seven months before he was discharged.
     This declarant again entered the service of the United States under the command of Genl Butler & Capt Clark shortly after the battle of Guilford. On account of the British army having passed through this county and during this time of their continuances in the same county the Tories became very much insubordinate, and committed a great deal many outrages. This declarant at this time volunteered for the purpose resisting the tories and putting an end to these outrages. From Chatham Court house he was marched to Crowsford on the Haw river. The tories but a short time before had taken the town of Hillsboro, from which placed they returned to Lindlys mill on Cain Creek. About two hours before day this declarant marching with two hundred & fifty volunteers with him from Crowsford to attack the tories on Cain Creek.  In this engagement the tories to the number of seven hundred was defeated with loss of one hundred men & completely dispersed. The loss of the whigs being on Seventeen. The success of this attack was chiefly owing to the skill and good management of Col Mebane an officer of the Continental army, who had been previously taken prisoner by the Brittish, and was about this time passing through this secction of county to join Genl Greens Southern army. Hearing of the intended expedition against the tories, and being fond of the short, he took command of this expedition which ended as above stated. Shortly after this engagement this declarant went under the command of the same officers in pursuit of a band of tories who had taken Chatham Court house, and afterwards returned down toward Cross Creek near Fayeteville. At Rock High this declarant and the forces with him joined Genl Rutherford with fifteen hundred men, and was marched by him down into the low country where he remained for a considerable time in scouring, the raft swamp this swamp on Drowning Creek. the brown marsh he at a place cutting the three bridges or seven bridges, a slight skirmish 3 took place with tories and the right hand of Genl Ruthersford. And account of the considerable force of Genl Rutherford which very much intimidated the tories, they were unwilling to encounter him, so that no engagement of any note took place. This affiant was involved in excursions of similar from this time, of turning out as above mentioned till the end of this war, with the privilege only of returning home for a few days only.
     This declarant was born in Essex County in Virginia from which place his brother after the death of his father moved him to Chatham County NC when he was quite young. He does not know in what year he was born, the family record of his age having been as he has been informed destroyed. About six or seven years after the war this declarant moved into this county of Guilford where he has ever since that time resided.
     He never received any written discharge from service at any time that he has now any recollection of.
     He is known in his neighborhood to the Rev. Travis Jones, James Nelson Esqr 4, James McNary Esqr & Philip Jean who can testify to his character for veracity 5 and their belief of his services as a soldier of the Revolution.
     He hereby relinquishes any claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.

Pension Application Of Rachael E. McDaris

State of North Carolina)

Buncombe County ) Section Act 4th July, 1836

On This the 17th day of August, personally appeared before me the undersigned, an acting justice in said county; Rachael E. McDaris a resident on Big Ivey in said county and state of North Carolina, aged ninety-three years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doeth on her oath make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by an act of congress passed July 4th 1836: That she is the widow of Rice McDaris, who was a private soldier in the company of North Carolina Militia commanded by Capt. Silas Martin whose company belonged to the Regiment of militia commanded by Colonel Benjamin Cleavland. That her husband McDaris was drafted the first time on the 13th day of June in the year A.D. seventeen hundred and seventy-seven(the widow is not certain whether it was 77 or 78 but is of opinion it was seventy-seven when her husband entered the service.) and was at the time of his being drafted, a citizen of Wilkes County and state of No. Carolina.

This term of service(she thinks) was four months, and was expressly for the Cherokee Indian war, and was marched directly into the country inhabited by said Indians, and was gone from the time he entered said service until he returned home four months and sixteen days. She thinks that his return home was about the beginning of November, and year above mentioned. She further says that her husband, the afore mentioned Rice McDaris, was at home something like four weeks when an express again arrived for the men in Wilkes County again to enter the Service, That her husband was again drafted, and served a tour of six weeks under one Captain Allen, still belonging to Colonel Cleavland's Regiment of Militia which expedition was against a body of Tories, which were then collecting not far from said county, She further says that if he was in any battles this time that she does not now remember it. The said Rice McDaris was at home but a short time when he was again drafted (or, as she says, pressed into service, and under the same officers, being Capt, Allen and Colonel Cleavland) for the term of three months, and was during this period of service in a battle called The Hanging Rock but in what county said battle was fought she is not certain, or even the month when it was fought. This time their time expired and the said Rice McDaris again came home and remained there but a short interval until he was again called out.

The applicant further says, that her husband, the afore said Rice McDaris, served another tour of three months, and was drafted again, belonging to Captain Lewis Company and belonging to Col. Allen's Regiment; the same Allen she thinks who before a Captain and under whom her husband served his first tour of service: That During this period of service the said Rice McDaris was in another battle called The Gum (?) Springs, and is of the opinion that this battle was with the Tories, and perhaps a portion of British with them, She further says that her husband was again drafted for the term of three months under Captain Allen, and Colonel Ben Cleavland: That during this tour of service the said Rice McDaris was in the battle of Kings Mountain, after which he returned home as did all, the men In Capt. Allen's company who were not killed.

She further says that her husband, Rice McDaris was again drafted (and which was his last tour) for the term of five months, and was under Captain Martin and Colonel Allen.

She further states that her husband was away this term of service stationed in the town or Charleston, South Carolina three months and twenty-one days; after which the said McDaris finally left the service in the month of March, seventeen hundred and eighty-two. She further says that her husband the afore mentioned, Rice McDaris was engaged under the above mentioned Officers at different times and periods the whole time that he was basted in the Southern States, that the above mentioned towns or periods are all that she can now remember distinctly, and these officers (Captains and Colonels) she does remember well. The widow further says that she has no documentary evidence in support of her claim; but that her husband the afore said Rice McDaris had discharges from the officers underwhom he served for each of his tours of service which were consumed by fire in his house in the state of Virginia and that was the reason why application has not been made heretofore for a pension. She further says, on her oath that had the house of Rice McDaris (in which were destroyed his discharges by fire) was in Russell County and state as mentioned heretofore.

She further declares that she was married to the said Rice McDaris on the 18th day of June in the year A.D. one thousand seven hundred and seventy-five and that her husband the afore said Rice McDaris, died on the 22nd day of July eighteen hundred and twenty-four and that she has remained a widow ever since that period as Will more fully appear from the proof annexed.
