    Gabriel Smith Revolutionary War claim
    Gabriel Smith Revolutionary War claim

    This is a copy of a claim 1 Sept 1784 filed for Gabriel Smith for payment for Revolutionary Service. Gabriel enlisted at age 16 in the Montgomery Co., NC Patriot Militia. One of the signers of this claim is Thomas Childs, one of Gabriel's commanding officers according to his Pension Application filed in Franklin Co., Ga.



  • Notes 
    • Speculation that he is son of John Little River Smith
      From Kermit Smith

      John LR, likely father of Gabriel Smith Sr.,was a signer of the Regulators Petition in 1769 Anson Co.,NC as was Richard Downs of Anson Co. By 1775 John LR was the Adjutant General for the Loyalist Militia and Highlanders under General Donald McDonald and was in the Battle of Moore's Creek Bridge NC near Wilimington NC. The Patriot militia and Cont.Line routed the Tories and Highlanders in minutes. John LR was captured and was sent to Philadelphia Pa as a POW. He stayed there for about 7 months and was able to post bond for security if allowed to come home. He evidently caught a disease in prison and likely died after 1784 in Montgomery Co.NC.
      Richard Downs was arrested for suspicious behavior by the Anson Co. Safety Committee and was released if he agreed to 3 months in the Partiot militia and his security was Capt.Bogan of Anson Co. (This was probably Patrick Bogan who reported to Patriot Col Thomas Wade and I believe married to one of Wade's daughters.)Source Colonial and State Records of North Carolina.
