They are mother and son; Daniel’s father Alexander died several years earlier. Daniel’s brother John appears on the same page, and brother Jesse appears on the previous page; neither has any numbers next to his name. There is some question as to what the numbers in the columns refer to; Caswell County has just been formed and it may be a survey of acreage of the residents, and number of horses or cattle. It seems unlikely that the second column refers to number of white polls as some of the numbers are very large. Unfortunately the columns are not labeled on any of the pages found for this record. 1777 NC State Archives, Raleigh NC  1777 Tax List – Caswell County, North Carolina.

“Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of an Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832. State of Tennessee, Bedford County John Bearden, Senior, a resident of this county and aged eighty-nine [89] years, two [2] months, four [4] days. Entered service of United States under following officers and served as here stated.  Born in Spottsylvania County, Virginia, March 11, 1744, agreeable to his family record, but has no record of it at this time.  He says he entered the service of the United States as a private and volunteered in a company of rangers, or spies, commanded by Capt. Joseph Wofford and Lt. D. Graham, Spartanburg District, South Carolina some time in the month of April, 1777, the precise day he cannot recollect.  He was marched to a fort on the head of Enoree River to Prince’s Fort, and there was stationed, but was frequently out on a scouting or spying expeditions against the Cherokee Indians and a Tory family named Bates.  [The town of Batesville, South Carolina is located 10 miles east of Greenville on the Enoree River.]  Four in number: William, Harry, Isaac and their father–who were skulking about with the Indians, were frequently engaged with the Indians in murders of frontier settlers; and there remained in service until some time in January, 1778, when he was dismissed agreeable to orders.  Thinks in February, 1778 he volunteered again and joined a company of spies or rangers under command of Captain John Gowen, and marched to a fort on the south side of the Pacolet River [probably near present-day Landrum, South Carolina] and was frequently raiding on the frontier settlement on the Tyger River.
He states that on one of the scouting expeditions he was on, Captain Gowen arrested and took prisoner two men, one by the name of Fanning, the other by name of Smith; that they brought them back into a white settlement [probably Gowensville] and delivered them up to a magistrate, as they were both Tories, and both had stolen horses, each taken from a Mr. James Ford and a Mr. John Patten.  Deponent says he was marched back to the last-mentioned fort [near Landrum] on the south fork of the Pacolet River, where he remained in service until some time in the month of August, 1778, and was again dismissed, it being thought and frequently said by Captain Gowen that the Indians had become quiet and that there was no further use for the troops at that time.  He states that he served in the last-mentioned town [Landrum] not less than six months.
Deponent further says that he removed shortly after that into Union District, S.C, and there entered the service of the United States again, about one week before the siege of Ninety-Six.  That he was marched off that place a drafted soldier and was in the engagement at that place.
He says he was then transferred from Captain Blassingame’s company and marched through the country in a different direction in search of a band of Tories under the command of Jesse Gray.  That he continued in service under the last-mentioned captain a tour of duty of not less than four months, and says he was finally dismissed from service, after serving in all, a tour of actual service of not less than nine months, for which he claims a pension.
Applicant says he remained a citizen of South Carolina until 1824 when he removed to Bedford County, Tennessee, where he now lives.  He further says that he was not acquainted with any regular officers with the troops when he served or any regiment of regulars whatever.   s/s John Bearden”.  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms007.htm

Revolutionary War Pension of Levi Goines
Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the acts of Congress for the benefit of Revolutionary Soldiers.
State of North Carolina
County of Moore
On this 26th day of April AD 1852 personally appeared before the court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions held for the county and State of aforesaid, Levi Goines a resident of said County of Moore, and State of N.C. aged, about ninety years, who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit, of the provision made by the acts of Congress for Soldiers who served in the Revolutionary war. That he volunteered in Fairfield County, State of South Carolina, and agreed to serve until the end of the war, the time he entered the service he does not recollect, but believes it was about the time that the British took Charleston that he served as a private in a Company Commanded by Captain John Gray and was attached to a Regiment which was Commanded by Col. John Winn, and Gen. Richard Winn. He continues in actual service for about the time of twelve months though his recollection is not very distinct as to the time he served but he was honorably discharged as he believes, at the close of the sad Revolutionary War by his said Captain, having been marched back to said Fairfield County, which was also the residence of his Captain. He obtained no written discharge. He was engaged in a battle near the confluence of the Congaree and Santee Rivers. Gen. Lee he (note at bottom of page reads “He thinks two year, but is determined to be written bounds”) believes was the commander though his memory as to this is indistinct. Says the town surrendered here without much fighting. His services was entirely confined to the Sate of South Carolina, marching from Wynsborough to the Congaree Fort. And various other parts of said state under his officers. He recollects the names of many officers and soldiers with whom he served but does not know any regulars the following are some of them. Gen. Sumpter, Majr John Pearson, William W. Morey, James Steel, Joseph Kennedy, John Greggs, Liut Andrew Gray, & Saml Croslin (the latter was a regular). He knows of no person living, whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his service having removed from the state of South Carolina to North Carolina Moore County soon after the close of the Revolutionary Warwhere he has resided ever since he has never been positive until recently that he was entitled to a Pension. Several years since a gentleman informed him that he was entitled to anything and made no further effort until now. He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.
Sworn to and subscribed the day and year aforesaid in open court.

The declaration of Levi Goines, a Revolutionary Soldier, with the proof of his services here unto annexed, is respectfully submitted for you consideration, it is believed that under the several acts of Congress he is entitled to a Pension for life from the 4th day of March 1831. To back pay since that time and to bounty lands having volunteered during the war and served as he believes until its close or until discharged by his officers which several claims he respectfully asks the department to allow him. He has no living nor documentary evidence of his services but has transmitted a correct statement under oath showing as near as frail memory will allow the time place and manner of his services the officer under whom he served and with whom he was acquainted. He also produces the certificate of three of the most respectable and intelligent men in his county who establish beyond doubt his food character and general reputation as a soldier and I imagine there are but few of those Veterans who have been mercifully spared until this day that would swear falsely. This proof I trust will be sufficient to establish his claim. Time has so reduced the number of Veterans and of the witnesses of their services and sufferings that to require of them positive proof independently of their own statement would be to deprive them of the benefit of the act. An early investigation of this claim is respectfully solicited. If consistent with the regulations of the department, his humble condition in life and very feeble health require it. All of which is respectfully subscribed. My address is Carthage, N.C.

On the 28th day of June A.D. 1852 personally appeared before me a justice of the peace within and for the county and state aforesaid Gen W. D. Dawd who being duly sworn according to law declared that he is well acquainted with Levi Goines of said county and from his general character has no hesitation in saying that he is entitled to full credit upon his oath. That he has recently been requested to examine said Goines relation to his services as a soldier in the Revolutionary war. That he has examined and conversed with him on that subject at various times and with great particularity and has no doubt that said Goines volunteered in the state of So. Carolina for and during the war and continued in actual service in the Revolutionary war for nearly or quite two years. That he inquired of said Goines when he entered the service. Said he could not tell but it was about the time the British took Charleston that he inquired what was his age now, he said he was ninety years this month. That he discovered he discovered he must have been under twenty one years when Charleston was surrendered to the British, that without making a single interaction to said Goines of that fact (nor can he read a word of history) that he inquired how old he was when he volunteered, to which he replied that he was about nineteen years old, that he then referred to the history of the revolution and found that the time Charleston was surrendered (12th May 1780). Said Goines was about nineteen. That he then inquired what general officers he knew. He said Green, Sumpter, Wynn, Lee. That he then inquired what battles he was in. He said he was in but one which was at the Cangaree fort. That he again referred to the history and finds that this fort was called Moltes near the confluence of the Congaree & Santee Rivers. Gen Lee was dispatched to this place. That from these facts together with many other incidents of said war related by said Goines. The conclusion was irresistible that said Goines is one of these Veterans who stood up for his country in the hour of danger and has never yet received a pension. That said Goines with his aged companion are living alone in a very humble condition in life barely able to afford themselves the comforts which their advanced age require. That it is in the universal opinion of all who conversed with him that he was a faithful soldier in the Revolutionary war.

Dear Sir.
Some months since I presented (through Gen Dockery) to the department the declaration of Levi Goines a soldier in the war of the Revolution asking to be allowed a pension for his services in said war. I stated in my letter that the advanced age and feeble health of the old Veteran presents strong claims to the department for an early investigation. I have waited with great patience and as yet the department has not seen fit to address me on the subject. If there is any informality in the declaration or any lack of testimony that prevents the claim being allowed will the department please to inform me or if it has not yet been investigated or has been allowed and no information given. I ask respectfully to be informed thereof.
Very Respectfully

John Winn of Winnsboro, South Carolina, according to the research of Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr.  The “Swamp Fox” repeatedly led his rapid-deployment brigade in daring raids against the superior British forces, exacted heavy losses upon them and then escaped into the swamps where the English were unable to follow. They had remarkable successes in battles at Georgetown, Ft. Watson, Ft. Motte and Eutaw Springs, lifting the morale of the Americans who were generally being defeated everywhere else. Their spectacular success in the Battle of Parker’s Ferry in 1782 resulted in a Congressional medal for Marion’s men. South Carolina.

William Going was one of 116 Rutherford County men who aligned with the Tories during the Revolutionary War. They served in the defeated army of Lt. Col. Patrick Ferguson in the Battle of Kings Mountain. Because of their action they were charged with treason by the Rutherford County Court, and their property was confiscated by the state. It is assumed that all of these men fled the state.
“In the battle 225 loyalists were killed, 163 were wounded and 715 were taken prisoner. As to patriots casualties, 28 were killed and 68 were wounded.
