He was commissioned 2d Lieutenant June 11, 1777, and as 1st Lieutenant, November 18, 1777; was transferred to Major Henderson's Company, in October or November, 1778; was commissioned Captain-Lieutenant June 25, 1779, and his name last appears on a return dated January 10, 1786, which shows that he was paid the balance due him for his services to January, 1783."
