A Patriot of the American Revolution for NORTH CAROLINA with the rank of PRIVATE. DAR Ancestor # A104597

In her application for the Revolutionary War pension, Peter's wife Sarah Sergent Skeen testified that "her husband was a private in the war of the revolution and as such served three, if not four tours, in the North Carolina line. His first was for six months under Col. Murphry or Col. William Moore: he was under both those men, but it is impossible for this applicant to say which Col. he was first under. Her said husband served also two three months toursafterwards, and applicant thinks in those tours he was also under one of those above named Cols.; and he also went a tour of some five or six weeks down on Crags' Creek below Hillsboro: applicant cannot say now what Captain he was under; she may have heard him say but she cannot now remember, nor can she now name what Generals he served. She has heard him say that he was in the battle of Stone and he was also in the battle in which Genl Davidson was killed, and she thinks, she has heard him speak of other battles which she cannot now mention. The first tour above mentioned was in the year 1780, the second in the year '81, the third in the year 1782. "
