Copied from THE LOYALISTS AT KINGS MOUNTAIN, by Bobby Gilmer Moss, 1998:
p. 6. Jonas Bedford was from NJ and his parents were natives of Great Britain. After his house was burned, he abandoned his wife, Mary, to command a group of 65 men who joined Ferguson at Charleston. He was in the battle of Kings Mt. In 1785, the NC Genl Assembly passed a law allowing his wife to sell his personal estate.
p. 47. Joshua King served under Maj. Thomas Milledge and Col. Cortland Skinner in the First Battalion of the NJ (Provincial) Volunteers before coming to the South. He was detached and was under Ferguson in the battle of Kings Mt, where he was taken prisoner. He was still a prisoner on 24 June 1782 at Lancaster, PA.
p. 47. William King was commissioned by Ferguson on 2 Aug 1780 and possibly was in the battle of Kings Mt. On 2 Aug 1781, he was appointed ensign under Capt. R. Turner and Col. D.. Fanning in the Randolph Co (NC) Militia. King later joined the patriots.
