Declaration of William McCutcheon:
McCUTCHEON, WILLIAM.--Augusta, June 20, 1833. Born Nov. 27, 1758. Went into service in 1778, every tenth man among the militia who had not families being required to enter the regular service for one year. Took the oath June 3, and was ordered by Col. Sampson Mathews to drive a wagon from Staunton to Valley Forge. The wagon brigade to which he was attached was under Wagonmaster David Steele. They crossed the Blue Ridge by Rockfish Gap and took up a supply of bacon at Orange and Culpeper. Washington's army was met between Morristown, N. J., and the Hudson at King's Ferry. Soon after the battle of Monmouth they proceeded to White Plains. Declarant then presented to Gen. Greene a certificate from Col. Mathews, and asked to be returned to the ranks, his duties as wagoner being very tiresome. The request was refused. Discharged at Raritan River, June 1, 1779. Col. Thompson was wagonmaster general. Drafted, 1780, under Capt. Samuel McCutcheon, and Lt. John McCamie. Marched from Widow Tee's (Waynesboro), Sept. 1st, with the companies of Captains Smith, Long, Dickey and Given, and served three months at Richmond as guard, and were in no engagement. Long, the senior captain, acted as major. Declarant was Sergeant. Drafted in June, 1781, again under McCutchen, George Craig being lieutenant. The colonel was William Bowyer, the adjutant, Thomas Bell. Declarant served twenty days as Orderly Sergeant.
