His family at some point moved to South Carolina, and he saw very active duty during the American Revolution - during the Cherokee campaign of 1776, in command of Fort Jamieson in 1777, and in the battles of King's Mountain, Cedar Springs, Hanging Rock, Musgrove's Mill, Hammond's Store, Blackstock's Ford, and at Cowpens.
