He first entered the Service of the United States in an expedition against the Cherokee Indians, under Captain Brandon, the expedition was commanded as he believes by General Rutherford, whether Rutherford was at the time of this expedition a Colonel or General he does not recollect. He entered the Service as a volunteer & served a 5 months Tour. They traversed that part of North Carolina now called East Tennessee, particularly the Country lying
on Little Tennessee also the northern part of Georgia, through the Country lying on Tugaloo River -- burnt and destroyed the Indian towns & settlements on Little Tennessee & Tugaloo rivers -- had many Skirmishes with the Indians, but no general Battle or engagement, took many prisoners & killed many of the Indians. This expedition commenced in the early part of June and ended about the first of November. He cannot say what year, he is confident it was before the Battle at Camden called Gates defeat.
