??? JOHN PEEBLES was born about 1762, he enlisted early in the service. We copy an extract from his affidavit made in the year 1847; "I entered the service of the United States under the following named officers and served as herein stated under Captain Nettles, and immediately joined General Marion's army. I was at the battle of Eutaw Springs, and was in North Carolina in what was called the "truce land", and was engaged in scouting parties against the tories. I was not discharge from the service until after military operations had ceased." After the war, he removed to Kentucky, and later to Illinois, in Macoupin county, where he died October 6, 1849. He lies buried in the cemetery near Chesterfield. A few years since the members of the family erected a monument to the memory of this Revolutionary hero. http://www.iltrails.org/rw5.htm
