Served in the Revolution:He was in the company commanded by John Chilton. The enlistment was for two years. Shortly before the enlistment was to expire, he enlisted for two more years. He served until 1780 when he was taken prisoner at the siege of Charleston. Part of the time he was a prisoner he was held on a prison ship. The balance of the time he was made to work on a fort which was built by the British on a small island in Charleston Bay. During high tide the island was under water. He was a prisoner until sometime in 1781 when he was exchanged for British prisoners held by the Americans. His health was so destroyed that he was not able to return to the army. He applied to General Muhienburg for a discharge which he received. He was in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth and at the siege of Charleston.
He was married to Martha Atwood. Their children were: Elijah, Nancy, Archibald, Elizabeth, Gilbert, William, John, Joseph and Mary Polly.
