I found this in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 28, 1920. On page 349 is the following letter.
"George Peary to Col. William Preston, Dec. 17, 1782
I have sent by the bearer Wm Kavanaugh the District money for Aplegate & Langley & as for Arain Dooley, Charles Cidwell, John G. Runion & Thomas Stanton They are not in this County nor hant bin sence Last Spring & I understand all but Runian had thire famleys in Bedford County & was Trying to Shift Duty when they were hear So I can do no more & I shall humbly thank you for a Clearance for this Part of Duty I am Sir your Humble Ser't Geo. Peary"
I am particularly interested in learning more about this Arain (Aaron) Dooley. Can anyone help? Does anyone recognize the other names mentioned and have any information on them?
