Sovereign Robertson Sr. & Jr. late 1700s early 1800s

Hello, I'm looking for any info about Revolutionary War soldier named Sovreign or Sovrin Robertson who I believe to be my 5th great grandfather. He appears on the 1790 Pitt County NC census and according to the scant info I can find about him, he or his heirs received 640 acres of land for 84 months of Revolutionary War Service in the NC Militia during the war. His son, also named Sovereign Roberson (my 4th gr gf) moved to the Orangeburg County SC area before 1810 (by himself or with his father?) and served in Capt. W. H. Capers' Company, McWillie's 2nd SC Militia Regiment (pension? # WC 25,544) during the War of 1812 and eventually ended up in the Columbia, Maury County, TN area where he died about 1850. Any info on these folks is greatly appreciated! Dave in Michigan
