Potter/Gabbert and Kendrick/Daniel War Records

Revolutionary War:

7GF: JOHN JAMES: Revolutionary War Pension Application?

6GF: James Bagen Fulton. Born: 21 JAN 1765 in Bordentown, NJ. Died: 26 APR 1848.

James B. Fulton moved to York County, South Carolina in 1787. He served in the Revolutionary War as a private and was drafted twice, the second time he was present at the Battle of Yorktown. He filed an extensive pension application, which is interesting in that he apparently tore out the pages from his family Bible and sent them in with his application. According to James' testimony when he applied for a pension, he copied his own entries out of his father's Bible in his own hand. Pages from The Family Bible of James & Anastasia Fulton are preserved on microfilm at the National Archives. Click on the page images for close-up images of each page.

4GF: Enoch Daniel. Born: abt. 1814 in NC. Died: 23 JUN 1878 in Robbs, Pontotoc Co., MS. Buried: Robbs Cemetery, Pontotoc Co., MS.

His footstone reads: Company F, 4th MISS MINUTE MEN, C.S.A. NOTE: The Minute Men were organized in 1862 by order of Maj.-Gen. H. C. Tupper, Commander of State Troops; enlistments were for 6 months and these companies were not mustered into Confederate Service. There were 5 regiments and 4 battalions. The 1st, 3rd and 4th Regiments were disbanded. Some men from the 4th could have enlisted in the 5th MS Infantry but according to "MS Military History" the 4th Minute Men were not re-organized into the 5th. There is an excellent chance Enoch served his enrollment and went back home. The MS Archives and History may have records on the 4th Minute Men. Since Enoch has a Confederate Marker, there is proof somewhere that he served. There is only one Daniel listed as serving in the 5th. This was E. B. Daniel; 4th Cpl; Co. C, 5th MS Infantry. Unfortunately, E. B. did not survive the War.
