Thomas Dalton Revolution War Pension #W-6983 State of North Carolina, Rutherford County. On this 10th day of July 1834, personally appeared in open court before the Justus of the Court of Pleas and Quarter session now sitting Thomas Dalton age 71 years, a resident of the United States in the county of Rutherford and State of North Carolina, who being duly sworn according to law doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of congress the 7th of June 1832. Sayth that he entered the service of the United States and served under the following named officers and served as herein stated. In the year 1780 my mother and family moved from Albemarle County State of Virginia to Rutherford County N. Carolina. I was then in my 17th year of age. My brothers all engaged in the war of the revolution. I soon after our landing, joined a volunter company under the command of Capt. Adam Hampton early in the Spring of 1780. I server a tour of 3 months under Capt. Adam Hampton and Capt. Andrew Hampton. I was kept out as one of the spys on the lines to guard the frontiers against the indians. I was discharged and returned home but when I came there Fergerson and his army was stationed within 2 miles of my mothers. The company was kept together to annoy his army. We followed his rear and cut off his straglers on the head of Cane Creek where they had a schrimage with the Burke troops, they then from that place retreated back, we was in the rear but now changed to the front. We parlied before them, we annoyed them and scattered their outpost and foraging parties and took from them our support. This service lasted ar least 3 months before I got home. When I came in the neighborhood of my mothers all was confusion. Capt. McClain was beating up for volunters to guard the frontiers. I joined him and served 5 months. We was kept on the out post and frontiers and had much difficulty with the indians and troies. After our times was out we returned home. Soon after my return I was a volunter under Capt. McClain and served 3 months at Waddles and Ruphill Forts and on the lines as an indian spy. I then returned home, we was principally under the orders of Capt. Hampton and Capt. McDowell. The last service, Capt. Miller had the commission. This service was performed in the years of 1780 and 1781. I can't state the precise months but I will remember the years. I know I did not serve less than the four tours mentioned above and not less then 3 months at each time. Which made 12 months that I served during the revolutionary war and for which service I claim a pension, thereby relinquish every claim to a pension except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any other state whatsoever.
