* Note - there were three Captains of NC Militia named Samuel Johnson.

This man was from Wilkes County. He was a Captain reduced to Lieutenant just for the battle of Kings Mountain (SC) (Wounded) because there were too many different companies with small numbers of men. Some men still later asserted that they were under him as a Captain at Kings Mountain. Soon back to Captain.

The second Capt. Samuel Johnson was from Caswell County.

The third Capt. Samuel Johnson was from Surry County.
