Captain John Cartmill's militia company

In "Kegley's Virginia Frontier", page 437, the folllowinbg appears: "In that part of the Forks community that remained in Botetourt County after 1778 there lived about sixty scattered families. In 1783 a list of the heads of these families was made with the number of horses, cattle, slaves and tithables attached. The men constituted Captain Cartmill's company of militia as reported to Col. Wm. McClenachan, Sheriff of Botetourt County." Has anyone seen the report to Col. McClenachan referred to here? The following page, 438, list the names of those in Cartmill's company, and my 5-G-Grandfather's name (John Bowen) appears. I'm hoping to document this beyond the appearance in Kegley's.
