There is a detailed account of this company in "Capt. Samuel Cobrin's Company of Militia: The First Settlers of Lincoln and Gaston Counties" published by Dr. Robert W. Ramsey Ph. D. This area was then in the confines of the newly formed Anson Co., which was formed in 1747. This list of 79 men includes the progenitors of the oldest families in that area. Among these men listed are Henry and Adam Sides. From Dr. Ramsey's account is the following: "Henrich and Adam Seitz were both under 21 years of age upon arrival in Philadelphia aboard the Queen Elizabeth in 1738. Sometime before reaching the Carolinas, Adam learned the tailor's trade. He settled on Leeper's Creek in modern Lincoln County, four miles north of Peter Oster.
