In an article which appeared in the Washington (NC) Progress weekly newspaper on August 8, 1901, Lake Landing, Hyde County, NC, the following muster roll was listed, dated December 13, 1813.
BLOUNT, William - CAPTAIN
GIBBS, Heppard (sic)
McGOUND, Isaiah - John B. McGOWAN
This company of men left Hyde County, NC, on December 23rd, 1813. They were ordered to Ocracoke and from there to Charleston, SC. It is not known if this unit was ever in an engagement, but their services were recognized by the state of North Carolina. Mrs. Matilda DANIELS and one other person, widow, drew a pension of twelve dollars a month. She died only several years before this article was printed in 1901; the last of the survivors.
I am seeking information on HEPPARD GIBBS, one of the men in this unit.
