Research Notes

From Virginia Colonial Militia, 1651-1776, Land Bounty Certificates, p.31, Edited by, William Armstrong Crozier, Baltimore, Southern Book Co., 1954.[2] "Freeman Lewelling, John Gaulding, Chas. Howall and James Foster, severally privates in late war between Great Britain and France, under command, of Col. Wm. Byrd, and continued in service during their enlistments. Prince Edward Co., Feby. Court, 1780." This would be from the French Indian War (1754-1763). If this is for John Jr. It would be given very close to his Death Date.

1735-1782, South Carolina[3]
