About William Harrison Brannon

A Patriot of the American Revolution for SOUTH CAROLINA (Soldier). DAR Ancestor #: A013785

Lt. Col. Wm. Washington's 3rd Continental Lt. Dragoons before the battle. The iformation maps in the book put Washington's dragoons behind the front lines and out of sight of Tarleton whom they surprised greatly when they cut off the attacks of the British dragoons. Therefore, without a doubt, our Wm. Brannon was amongst the horsemen supporting Washington. (See documents that shows (G)Washington to have passed the pay bills submitted by William Brannon.). The book helps to clarify earlier errors such as where Col. Brandon was incorrectly shown as "Brannon". This is further proved since our Wm. Brannon would have been with Washington's 3rd Dragoons and not with Col. Thomas Brandon's flank. But I am cheered to know that our Wm. Brannon was part of the mounted operations that in Chapter 8 of the book is said to have been a major key to Morgan's victory! Further, Ancestry.com Revolutionary War Roster clarifies that Col. Major Parson is a different person from Capt. William Parsons. My Wm. Brannon was a horseman in the Battle of Cowpens as his service audited claim states that he served from 7th of June 1780 to 1 July 1781 under Capt. Parson and Capt. James Bridge's Companys of Col. Roebuck's Regiment. Ancestry.com further informs us of the following: Parson, Major: ......served alternately as a captain of horse under Col. Roebuck from 7 Jun 1780 to 1783. Bridges, James: He served......and as a captain of horse from 7 Jun 1780 to 7 April 1781 in Roebuck's Regiment. Roebuck, Benjamin: .......he distinguished himself at Cowpens. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel.
