I believe that my ancestor Daniel Beasley of Richmond Co. was the same Daniel Beasley who served in COL Benton's Regiment in the Revolution. COL Benton's was a SC militia regiment. It has been suggested to me that he could not have been the same men since Daniel lived in NC and the service was in SC. I am trying to confirm he was the same man or find some way to refute it. I wonder if other Richmond Co. men crossed the state line to serve with COL Benton. Does anyone have documentation of this happening? Perhaps a pension application of a soldier from Richmond Co. who served in that SC regiment? I'd appreciate any clues anyone may have.
