During the American Revolution, James Herndon commanded a company of Chatham County North Carolina Militia which in 1779 marched to Camden Courthouse and Charlestown, SC. The regimental commander was Colonel Lytle, whose regiment was a part of the army of General Benjamin Lincoln. References are found of James Herndon, as a captain, and as commander of a fort. He was one of the prisoners captured by David Fanning in his attack on Pittsboro, who reported to Governor Burke, 22 July 1781 from the camp at McFall's Mill, Raft Swamp, concerning their capture.
