Military*1 January 1780 The following information was retrieved from Francis' pension application. Francis was drafted at the rank of private in the North Carolina Militia while living in Guilford County. He entered on the 1st of January 1780 under the command of Captain Brasler. However, he was soon taken from the ranks by order of Colonel John Paisley and ordered to take charge of a public wagon and team and convey public arms, powder and lead from the Halifax courthouse in Halifax, Va to Salisbury, NC and to Guilford County and other various other places until he was dismissed 3 months later by Major Rutherford and was returned home. He was again drafted in Guilford County between the 15th and 20th of January of 1781 and was placed in Captain Barnett's company. Soon again, however, he was removed to take a wagon to Newborn, NC to get salt for General Greene's army. While he was returning and was about 15 miles below Hillsborough he got information that the British were in Hillsborough. He was then conveyed from there by orders of Colonel Gallespie to an area of the Roanoke River at Taylor's Ferry in VA. and stayed there until after the battle of Guilford. He was then sent home after delivering supplies, this was another tour of duty of about 3 months. However, as he was returning home, he heard his brother, James, had been killed by the Tories and some of Tarleton's men. He immediatly revolunteered under Brasher and Paisley and was sent out to look for Tories in Chatham and Guilford Counties. Francis served for a total of 7 months and 24 days.3,4
