* Note - during 1778-1779, this unit was considered part of the "New Levies." Most evidence points to him being in the Brunswick County Regiment from 1778 to 1781, but it is entirely possible that he was actually in the New Hanover County Regiment all this time and only "attached" to the Brunswick County Regiment.
