“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
