John Hollis Jr was the highest bidder at 2 dollars. The land was conveyed to  John Hollis Jr. Witnessed by Daniel M. Muse, and Elias T Muse. (The use of the name “John Hollis Jr” makes me think this might be John Hollis’ son, and that possibly he predeceased his parents, and that is a possible reason he is not listed in their will/probate paperwork).

In 1830, Captain John Hollis applied for his Revolutionary War pension.  The following affidavits and statements were filed as part of his application:

South Carolina, Fairfield District
Before me appeared Captain John Hollis and makes Oath about the year 1774 the deponent volunteered his services as a private soldier under Captain Samuel Boykin against the Tories between Saluda River and the Enoree [River]; that Deponent was present at the capture of Colonel Fletcher [sic, Thomas Fletchall] & others and served in this tour about one month. That the Deponent about the year eighteen hundred and seventy five [sic, 1775] enlisted as a regular soldier under Captain William Ransun Davis [William Ramson Davis] of the Hills (Santee) 3rd Regiment of Rangers under Colonel William Thompson [William Thomson]. The Deponent served as a Sergeant in this Regiment, until he was taken prisoner at Sentillis’ (or St. Illis’) fort [sic, Satilla Fort or a fort on the Satilla River?] in the back part of Georgia or it may be in Florida (the deponent is not certain in which State or territory the Fort was situated). That from bad treatment received from the Enemy when a prisoner afterwards and in parole, the Deponent joined Sumpter [Thomas Sumter] and afterwards Colonel Lacy [Edward Lacey], and continued with one or the other until the war was closed and peace made.
That the Deponent has his discharge from Colonel Thompson which he got from Colonel Thompson sometime after he was taken prisoner. That the Deponent was at the Battle at Sullivan’s Island [June 28, 1776], at the taking of Orangeburg [May 11, 1781], at the taking of the Fort below Granby [May 14, 1781], at St. Illis Fort, at the taking of Carey’s Fort [August 15, 1780] this side the Wateree River near Camden, (then under Sumter (when Gates [Horatio Gates] was defeated [Battle of Camden, August 15-16, 1780]), at the battle of Rocky Mount [July 30, 1780], at the battle of Kings Mountain [October 7, 1780] and at the taking of many Tories in different skirmishes. That Deponent received a wound in the right leg from a musket ball at the Juniper [possibly a reference to the ambush at Myddleton’s on June 18, 1781]. That the Deponent will he believes be eighty years of age on the third day of December next, that he has a wife about sixty five or seventy years old and four daughters and four grandchildren, three under 10 years of age, all living with Deponent. That the Deponent’s other children have all left him, excepting his two youngest sons, who live with the Deponent, but work for themselves and receive the profits. That Deponent owns about one hundred fifty acres land (third quality) about one half worn out. That Deponent’s circumstances are such as to render it almost impossible to support his large and helpless family in honesty. Whilst he was himself able to labor he disdained to ask assistance from any other source. But now that he has become old and very infirm he has ventured to approach his Country in the Character of a petitioner for a pension; which if granted will tend much to render comfortable the decline of a long life, seven years of which at least was spent in his Country’s service.

DeSaussure Chancellor of the State of South Carolina, in the Court of Equity now sitting at Fairfield Court House, Captain John Hollis, a resident of Fairfield District, in the state aforesaid aged eighty years since December 5th, 1831, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th 1832
The deponent was born the fifth day of December in the year 1751. The Deponent’s age was entered in a family Bible belonging to the Deponent’s father, which Bible deponent believes was burnt when his father’s house was burnt . The Schoolmaster of Deponent had transcribed deponent’s age into a Bible deponent produces in Court.
The deponent was born in Virginia in Fairfax County Potomac River.
The deponent lived when first called into service on the Wateree in Fairfield District, then Craven County, has lived on the same tract of land ever since and now lives there.
1st In the first tour of duty performed, the deponent volunteered as a private soldier under Captain Samuel Boykin against the Tories between Saluda and Enoree Rivers in which expedition Colonel Fletcher [sic Fletchall] was taken prisoner, in this tour of duty deponent served about one month.
2nd That deponent afterwards and about the year 1775 enlisted as a regular soldier, under Captain William Ramson Davis of the Hills Santee third Regiment of Rangers, under Colonel William Thompson [sic, William Thomson]. The deponent joined at Camden, crossed at Nelson’s ferry, thence to Williamson’s branch near the Eutaw, thence to Charleston, and thence to Sullivan’s Island, stayed there until after the attack on Fort Moultrie by the Sir Peter Parker. The deponent some time after the battle of Fort Moultrie volunteered by the permission and under the sanction of Colonel Thomson in an expedition to the Florida was under the command of Captain Richard Winn who was attached to Colonel Thomson’s Regiment about 60 men in the expedition. Captain Winn and Company were all taken prisoners at a Fort on the St. Illia [sic, Satilla] River, by a detachment of the enemy under command of General Provost [sic, Augustine Prevost]. The deponent enlisted for eighteen months in the Regiment commanded by Colonel Thompson served out the period of his enlistment and obtained a regular discharge from Colonel Thompson, now in Deponent’s possession. Deponent was a regular Sergeant and served as such the whole time of his enlistment unless when acting as second Lieutenant after Captain William R. Davis ceased to act as Captain and Lieutenant Francis Boykin took command of the
Company.
3rd The next service rendered by Deponent was under General Thomas Sumpter [sic, Thomas Sumter]. The Deponent then had command of a Company and rendezvoused at Granby. Sumter with his men then marched to Ninety Six to join General Greene — who had laid siege to the Fort at Ninety Six. Sumter’s force went within 6 miles of Ninety Six when ordered to retreat. General Sumter then marched through Newberry, Fairfield and Chester where the troops were disbanded and returned home after a tour of five or six weeks and probably longer.
4th The next tour of duty deponent made was under Colonel Edward Lacey. The Deponent commanded a company. The Regiment marched down to Granby and thence to McCord’s ferry on the Congaree, were out in service two months and were discharged.
5th The next tour the deponent was under Colonel Lacey. The deponent commanded the Company as Captain and in this tour the deponent was present and assisted in taking the Fort at Granby commanded by one Captain Maxfield. The Regiment was out two months this time.
6th. The next time was also under Colonel Edward Lacey. The deponent commanded his company as Captain this tour and the greater part of the time commanded the whole Regiment, Colonel Lacey having returned home the latter part of the time and Deponent being the oldest Captain. The Regiment went in so far as Saltketcher [River] in lower part of State and Deponent served in this tour two months.
The deponent was frequently out in scouting parties against the Tories, and was in duty nearly the whole period of the War from the time he entered in Thompson’s Regiment.
The deponent was with General Sumter at the taking of Carey’s Fort, on Wateree River when General Gates was defeated at Camden, was with General Sumter at the Battle of the Hanging Rock [August 6, 1780]; fought under Colonel Cleveland at Kings Mountain, with Sumter at the Battle of Rocky Mount and fought under Captain Barnett at the defeat of the Americans at the Juniper, Colonel Middleton [Charles S. Myddleton] commanded the American forces at the Juniper. They are the deponent was wounded in the leg and his horse shot. In most of the engagements with the enemy the deponent acted as a volunteer sometimes had some men under him and sometimes none. He had his company with him at the capture of Fort Carey.
The deponent never received his Commission as Captain. It was not customary in those days to obtain a Commission in form. The Companies elected their officers, who afterwards acted as such. Deponent was elected Captain by his Company and acted as Captain and always board the title and rank of Captain.
The deponent is well known to Major Henry Moore, Captain Charles Durham, William Johnston who can testify as to some of the military services rendered by deponent.
As regards the general belief of the neighborhood that Deponent served as a soldier in the Revolutionary War, Deponent would refer to General William Strother, Col. Wm McCreight, Samuel Alstin, Philip Edward [indecipherable name], Caleb Clarke, General John Buchanan and Captain Hugh Milling.
The Deponent further states that he served on regular tours of Militia duty and whilst commanding his Company and acting as Captain a much longer period than five months, taking into consideration the different tours performed. It was not long after Deponent received his discharge from Colonel Thompson on the 1st day of June 1777 that Deponent was elected Captain of a Militia Company in which Capacity he acted until peace was made. The news of which 1st reached the Deponent at Saltketcher when in the regular tour of duty before mentioned.
Deponent hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State.

The deponent is satisfied and has no doubt that Captain Hollis was out in service in the militia and acting as Captain of his Company for a greater time than nine months, taking into calculation all the time he served in the Militia as Captain during the Revolutionary war. This opinion the deponent has not formed from the information of others but from his personal knowledge of the services rendered. The deponent lived a neighbor of Captain Hollis during the war of the revolution and has lived a near neighbor ever since, and had a good opportunity of knowing every time Captain Hollis went out into service, and the times of his return. The Deponent further states that he knew of no one more active or devoted then Captain Hollis was in the cause of his Country and hurt liberties.

The State of South Carolina District of Fairfield: Captain John Hollis’ Supplementary evidence
Sheet 1
Personally appeared before the undersigned Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas and General Sessions for Fairfield District, in the State aforesaid Captain John Hollis of the District and State aforesaid who being duly sworn deposeth and saith that he is the identical John Hollis who made his declaration in open Court on the twentieth day of July 1832 before Chancellor Henry W. DeSaussure, in order to obtain a pension under the Act of Congress of June 7th 1832 which declaration and the proceedings had their own our continued in 3 sheets.
1st – In the first tour of duty mentioned in deponent’s declaration he served one month or more as a private soldier under Captain Samuel Boykin. This tour was performed in year 1775. It was cold weather, and may have commenced as early as December 1774, but believes it to have been in the winter of 1775. Colonel Pogue [probably a mistake in reference to Thomas Polk] of North Carolina and his Regiment from North Carolina along. A Regiment from Georgia was there. Does not recollect the Colonel. Thanks Colonel Joseph Kershaw was Deponent’s Colonel and commanded the South Carolina Regiment to which deponent belonged. Colonel Fletcher and one Cunningham (thinks his name was William) [more probably Robert or Patrick Cunningham] commanded the Tories.
In the second tour or term of service mentioned the deponent served eighteen months as first Sergeant. He enlisted as first Sergeant and continued to act as such the whole term of enlistment to wit eighteen months, excepting a short time deponent acted as a subaltern officer as stated in the declaration, but for which he received no additional pay. Deponent enlisted about the latter end of November 1775 and served to the date of his discharge from Colonel Thompson (the Colonel who commanded the Regiment) June 1st 1777 which discharge accompanies this Deposition. Ransun Davis was the first Captain over deponent’s Company, Durrell Hart [Derrill Hart] then succeeded and Frank Boykin [Francis Boykin] succeeded Hart in the command, Captain Boykin commanded the Company at the Battle of Sullivan’s Island or Fort Moultrie.
Colonel Thompson’s Regiment was on the Island during the battle. Sumter & Regiment was also there, and other Militia. General Lee [Charles Lee] who had command of all the troops, had stationed some troops in Charleston, some on Haddrell’s Point and part on Sullivan’s Island: Some time after the Battle at Fort Moultrie June 28, 1776 deponent was transferred to Captain Richard Winn’s Company, marched to the Floridas, and was taken prisoner as stated in the declaration at Fort McIntosh on the St. Illis River. Deponent received a parole as a prisoner and returned to South Carolina. Believes he was taken prisoner in March 1777, and shortly after he returned home his term of service or enlistment having expired he applied to Colonel Thompson then lying at the Eutaw [Eutaw Springs] (on a day appointed for the soldiers whose enlistment was out to apply) and obtained a discharge already mentioned. Colonels Brown (nickname Burntfoot) and McGirt [Daniel McGirt] were under Provost [Augustine Prevost] at the taking of Fort McIntosh. They had a large force of Indians as well as some British soldiers under them.
3rd. In the third tour or term of service the deponent served as Captain one month and a half Colonel Thomas Sumter commanded the Regiment Captain William Miller had command of a Company in this tour. He left his company without leave, and part of his company was attached to Deponent’s which circumstance brings his name to deponent’s recollection.
4th In the 4th tour deponent was Captain and commanded a Company and served two months as Captain. John Adair was the Major under Colonel Lacey Colonel McGriff was the Lieutenant Colonel and was along. Captains George Gill, John McClure and Steel were along. None but Colonel Lacey’s Regiment were out on this tour. We engaged in marching through the country lying between Granby and McCord’s ferry on the Congaree River on the left bank of the river and watching the ferries.
5th In the 5th tour mentioned deponent commanded a Company and served as Captain two months. The fort surrendered after a detachment of Artillery from General Greene’s Army arrived. The [their] was a considerable body of Militia at the taking of the Fort at Granby, perhaps one thousand men. Thinks Captain Thomas Taylor was they are. Does not recollect the other Colonels, besides Lacey in command.
6th In the 6th tour the deponent commanded a Company and served as Captain two months. This tour performed at the close of the War. Deponent received orders from William Thompson Junior [William Thomson Junior] son of Colonel William Thompson 3rd Regiment South Carolina Rangers to discharge the Regiment and return home, when in camp at the Saltketcher peace having been concluded with Great Britain or the British having evacuated Charleston [the British evacuated Charleston in December 1782]. William Thompson Junior bore the rank of Colonel at that time Captain Richard Winn was along. There was no field Officer in Lacey’s Regiment left after Colonel Lacey’s return home. William Thompson Junior commanded the Army when present as Colonel and a Major Withers in his absence. There was other Militia troops in addition to Colonel Lacey’s at the Saltketcher on this tour. Captains Craig, Quinney, Hanna, Lyles were there. The deponent has placed the third tour mentioned out of the order of time as it ought to have been after the fifth and after the taking of Granby Fort.
7th the Deponent performed three tours of duty to Orangeburg which he forgot to mention in his declaration. In the first tour to Orangeburg, the deponent commanded his Company and served as Captain two months or more. Edward Lacey commanded the Regiment as Colonel. Captain James Craig was there. There were several regiments collected. A party of the Army attacked and defeated a body of the Tories in Edisto Swamp. In this tour John Stallions a Tory Captain came in and he and men twenty-five or thirty surrendered themselves prisoners of war. Stallions was shot by William Goodwyn in [a] sudden quarrel, and deponent received one of the balls through his left arm. Stallions in seeing Goodwyn’s gun raised seized hold of deponent’s arm and attempted to get behind deponent. One of the balls stroke Stallions on the hand that held deponent’s left arm passed through his hand and deponent’s arm, and the other ball lodged in
his breast entering at the left nipple and proving mortal. Colonel William Thompson Junior and his Regiment were there. Thinks Thompson commanded the whole Army.
8th In the second tour to Orangeburg deponent commanded his Company and served as Captain two months at least. Thinks only part of Colonel Lacey’s Regiment was out this time and that Lieutenant Colonel McGriff commanded. A Major Wise [probably Samuel Wise] from Pedee was there part of the time deponent believes. There were several Regiments there. Deponent does not recollect the commanding Officer unless it was Colonel Rump [Jacob Rumph] from Orangeburg, a Dutchman or of Dutch extraction.
9th In the third tour to Orangeburg deponent commanded his Company and served as Captain two months at least. The regular tours were generally for two months in the service was never shorter but sometimes longer. Colonel Lacey and Regiment were along. Several regiments there. A party of Tories, with some British and a few deserters from General Greene’s Army took possession of the jail at Orangeburg and after a short engagement they surrendered between two and three hundred in number. General Greene had posted some artillery on a neighboring hill ready to play on the jail which the more readily induced the surrender. Thinks some of Marion’s men were there and probably Colonel Marion [Francis Marion].
That by reason of old age and the consequent loss of memory deponent has not been able to place the different terms of service in the proper order of time nor to state the particular years the service was performed, but deponent is fully convinced and well recollects that he served in every tour he specifies, and that he served not less than the periods he has mentioned.
Deponent in the year 1778 was elected first Lieutenant and shortly afterwards rose to Captain, in consequence of bad treatment received from one Colonel Turnbull a Tory Colonel when a prisoner on parole, was induced to break his parole and joined in every tour of duty that was required afterwards. He was never at home more than one month at a time and that seldom from the year 1778 to the conclusion of peace, and during all this period was constantly in active duty as a Captain of a Company when his Company’s services were required, or as a volunteer private when his Company was at home.
Deponent has some impression that he had a Commission as first Lieutenant, but has no distinct recollection that he ever had a Commission as Captain. But is very sure that all his papers of every kind excepting a few in his pocket book the discharge was one were burned in his Father’s house which was burnt about the close or a little after the Revolutionary War. If the deponent ever had a Commission as first Lieutenant or as Captain it was burnt with his Father’s house. Deponent sometimes supposes that the Commission might have been as Captain. He believes he had a commission as Captain or as first Lieutenant, and is sure that it was burned as already mentioned.
Deponent from the year 1778 until the close of the War and in the several tours of duty mentioned acted as Captain, was obeyed and respected as such, and when he received pay was paid as a Captain, and if he had not received a Commission was entitled to have one. The only living witness that Deponent knows of who can testify to his commanding as Captain is William Johnston whose testimony is annexed to the declaration. Deponent is confident that the failure to have a Commission if he ever had one as Captain arise from no defects in his legal right to a Commission as he was elected first Lieutenant by the Company in accordance with the laws then in force in the State of South Carolina and was promoted to the Captaincy in strict accordance with the same laws. That in those times blank Commissions were scarce – were in the regular Army as deponent has been informed and believes and deponent is satisfied that many valuable Militia officers never were commissioned on account of their great scarcity. That that scarcity was as deponent believes mainly occasioned by the unsettled state of the Government of South Carolina, and the constantly interrupted intercourse between the Executive and the different sections of the Upper Country. If our Colonel Lacey tendered a Commission to Deponent,
Deponent is satisfied he accepted it and that it is burned. And when deponent in his declaration says “he never received a Commission” as Captain he only meant to convey the idea that he did not at that time recollect to have had one. For his memory is at present very imperfect, and Deponent did not at that time look upon a Commission as of any consequence either to his respectability or his usefulness, and in fact if it was so would as likely as not, have made no lasting impression on his memory.
Deponent has been informed that Captain Hugh Milling of this District only had a certificate signed by John Rutledge of this State stating that Hugh Milling was entitled to the rank or perhaps commission of Captain, and that the department granted him a pension as Captain under the Act of Congress passed some few years since for relief of Officers of the Continental Army. And deponent thinks that if he lacks the accustomed or highest evidence of his rank, either from the confusion of the times or the failure of memory, the right to a Commission being established his claim to his Country’s gratitude will not be diminished.
Deponent in each of the tours of duty mentioned and in many others, served with an embodied Corps called into service by the lawful authorities of the Country, that he served entirely in the field and not in garrison only when taken prisoner at Fort McIntosh, and that during said service he was not employed in any civil pursuit, but was entirely occupied with his duties as a soldier. Deponent excepting the eighteen months he served in Colonel Thompson’s Regiment was acting with no regular troops and has therefore omitted to mention any of their Officers excepting some in Colonel Thompson’s Regiment and a few others, but Moultrie had command of the Fort at the battle of Fort Moultrie 28 June 1776.
Deponent served as above stated thirteen and a half months as Captain, eighteen months as first Sergeant and one month as a private; enlisted soldier the eighteen months; and drafted the other services as Captain, and private soldier and he served as private volunteer in many tours not particularized partly from lack of memory, but principally because advised to be unnecessary. And claims a pension for thirteen and a half months service as Captain, and for ten and a half months (part of the eighteen months enlisted soldier) service as first Sergeant.
And should the Department conceive the evidence not warranting his pay as Captain or first Lieutenant during the thirteen and a half months then deponent submits that he has a right to claim the pay of the highest grade of noncommissioned Officers for that period. If the decision of the Department should be against deponent on this construction he would then claim pay as first Sergeant for eighteen months and as private the remaining six months.
Deponent trusts that the Department will excuse some solicitude manifested in the earnestness with which this application is pressed, Deponent’s circumstances being at present very much reduced, and his duty to himself and an aged partner forcing him to resort to a means of relief never at one period of his life anticipated nor desired.

On October 30, 1832 John Hollis filed an affidavit on behalf of the pension application of Charnel Durham W9418 Nancy fn52SC.  The affidavit stated:

“I John Hollis of the District of Fairfield in the State of South Carolina do hereby certify that I am well acquainted with Captain Charnal Durham, who has subscribed and sworn to the above declaration, that he believes him to be seventy-nine years of age. That he first became acquainted with him in Colonel William Thomson’s Regiment 3rd South Carolina Rangers in the year 1775 December. Captain Durham was then serving as a private soldier in Captain Richard Winn’s company and continued to serve during [fn p. 12] three months together when Captain Durham was detached under Captain Frank Boykin to Savannah. Heard of his being in the Regiment afterwards, but never were again united whilst deponent belonged to the Regiment. Deponent was discharged from the Regiment June first 1777.
Deponent always understood that Captain Durham served out his 3 years of enlistment and that he was afterwards taken prisoner by the Tories and detained in prison by the British in Charleston for a long time, and that he afterwards was made Captain of a militia Company and served several tours of duty during the Revolutionary war as Captain. Such has been the report and belief of all the old revolutionary soldiers that deponent has conversed with, and such the belief of the neighborhood ever since the revolutionary war, and never doubted that deponent ever heard of. That Captain Durham’s declaration above is entitled to every credit, being a respectable citizen.
Deponent was born in December 3rd 1751 and has lived in Fairfield District ever since the year 1763 or 4. Deponent and Captain Durham were together in the battle of Sullivan’s Island.
