Thank you so much for that very interesting reading: the words of the pensioners are such an understatement for the service they rendered.
(It seems odd to me that a 21-year-old Daniel McKIE would resign in 1780 from rheumatism. I know it's possible; but, it just seems unlikely to me for a man so young. Surely, this Capt. must be a much older Daniel McKEE. I know Daniel MORGAN b 1735, a contemporary of William GILREATH, Planter (d 1794/1795 Newberry Co SC whose son Capt William GILREATH (1753-1835), was a Scout for Gen Griffith RUTHERFORD) suffered rheumatism and finally withdrew from the fighting because of it. According to LDS, et al, Frances HERNDON didn't marry Daniel McKEE until 1811. It might be expected that Col. Ben HERNDON would have a son-in-law as a captain for him during the revolution; but, it's my understanding that Daniel and Frances weren't married until much later, 1811.)
Daniel McKIE (1759 VA - 1839 MS), m 1811 Frances HERNDON (dau of Col. Benj HERNDON (1749 VA - 1819 SC))
Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
