Kentucky Lineage by Broughton - page 58-59. "I volunteered under Colonel Martin Armstrong, Captain Jabes Jarvis, Lt. James Freeman, and an ensign (not remembered) for a tour of six weeks. I lived at that time in Surry County, North Carolina, on the Yadkin River. We marched from the shallow ford on the Yadkin where we rendevouzed to the crossroad, as it was called then, now Randolph Courthouse, where we joined Col. Martin with the troops he commanded. Thence to Campbelltown on Cape Fear, a distance of 160 miles from where I lived. There we were stationed until we were discharged........

During this year (1775) I volunteered several times to go against the Tories, but they were each of short duration, not exceeding 10 or 15 days."

Fought at the Battle of Moore's Bridge in Surry County, North Carolina on February 27, 1776.

Knox County Kinfolk in the Revolutionary War
Job Broughton's Pension Papers, #W8395
"Broughton Genealogy" by Mrs. Lillian B. Creech:
"The pension papers of Job Broughton, my great great grandfather, are as
revealing as a visit to the past because they give such a vivid account
of his entire life.
He was born October 30, 1755, at Brunswick, Virginia, and married June
26, 1774. However, Mary, his wife, stated after his death that she
thought they married in 1772.
They went to Surrey County, North Carolina in the spring of 1775, where
he volunteered for service in the Revolutionary War under Colonel Martin
Armstrong, Captain Jabes Jarvis, and Lieutenant James Freeman.
There was an uprising of the Scotch in North Carolina to aid the British,
so the patriots mustered forces, marched across a shallow ford of the
Yadkin, and then rendezvoused at a crossroad, later known as Randolph
Courthouse. There they joined the forces of Colonel Martin Armstrong and
marched 160 miles to Campbelltown on Cape Fear. News reached them that
Caswell (or Lazwell) had defeated the uprising and this prevented them
from going any further.
Later in the year of 1775, he volunteered several more times to go
against the Tories, but each siege was of short duration.
On February 24, 1777, he removed his family to Wilkes County, Georgia.
Then that fall he enrolled as a minute man and took up quarters at
Stephen Herd's Fort.
The troops were divided into three groups: one marching against the
British, Tories, and Indians; one acting as spies; and the third guarding
the Fort and protecting the women when they went out to get milk or get
water at the spring.
Richard Austin was his Captain a short while, but was wounded
accidentally by one of his own men. At Captain Austin's death, he was
replaced by Captain Richard Herd.
Job Broughton was ordered out as a spy for 18 months, but was released
from service, not duty, before the entire period terminated.
Another important service during this period was to help besiege
Savannah. He served 31 days during this encounter under General
Linkhorn, Colonel John Doolie, and Captain John Stewart.
This was the only large engagement he participated in, but made many
skirmishes against the Indians while at Herd's Fort.
He remembers seeing General McIntosh, Count D'Estany, and Count Pulaski
sitting on a log when a cannonball hit. The log split but no one was
injured.
He received his discharge in the fall of 1781 and removed his family to
Bute County, North Carolina, which has now been divided into Warren and
Franklin Counties. Fighting was still going on at this time because he
stated that he could hear guns firing as they traveled along.
He spent several years in North Carolina and then came to Kentucky 25
years prior to August 26, 1833, the date he made application for a
pension, and had resided 13 of those years on Goose Creek, Knox County,
Kentucky.
He stated that he could verify his age by the family Bible which was in
the possession of his sister, Winny Davis, in Surry County, North
Carolina.
On August 12, 1838, his widow, Mary Broughton, made a declaration that
she was 82 years old, and that he had died March 27, 1837. She said that
their 52-year old son, William Broughton, had been made administrator and
that she was making her home with him on Stinking Creek, Knox County,

Kentucky."
