* Note - there were two Captains from Chatham County with very similar names. This Author is convinced that they are the same man, however, there are enough differences in various accounts from later Pensioners that it is entirely possible that they are, indeed, two different men. The other man is Capt. Joseph Roper.

I leave this to the reader to decide for themselves if these are two different men or one and the same.
