  • Guilford-Randolph County NcArchives Military Records.....Dougan, Thomas - Revolutionary War - Pension (File contributed for use in USGenWeb Archives by: Nancy Poquette
  • Constructed History Of Colonel Thomas Dougan - (Witness) JOHN DOUGAN-“I entered the service…in the year 1778. The next active service that I now recollected that we were engaged in, I think occurred in March 1782 (the spring after Lord CORNWALLIS surrendered). Captain FANNING and his company consisting of forty or fifty Tories came into our county and ravaged the country and killed Lieutenant Colonel BALFOUR and Captain JOHN BRYAN in their own houses and burned my mother’s house and barn (she being a widow), Colonel COLLIER’s and Esquire MILLIGAN’s houses. We pursued them and overtook them and put them to flight, but the day being wet, our guns missed fire, so that we only wounded two men.”
