His military record extends from Maryland to Kentucky and back.... During his interim Kentucky journey in 1780 he served in the Lincoln County militia in July and August, under Captain Permenas Brisco in General George Rogers Clark's expedition against the Shawnees... On his return to Maryland he resumed his captaincy in the militia, and in 1781 and 1782 received some three hundred pounds as directed by Intendants Orders."
