Pension Papers of Samuel Sandeford from Wake County, Virginia. From Revolutionary War Papers, compiled by Ransom McBride.  Taken from the NC Gen Soc Journal, Vol. V, Nos. 1-4, p. 92:

Bullet5.gif (101 bytes) Samuel Sandeford, aged 82 years, resident of Wake Co., VA.  Application for Federal pension under Act of Congress of 1832, 21 August 1832.  He served a total of 9 months on four different tours.   He is a native of Southampton Co., VA and continued to reside there until after the close of the Revolutionary War.  He served his first tour of 2-3 months under Captain Butts and Col. Wilson in 1777, and was marched to Portsmouth, where he remained until his term expired.  In his second tour, he enlisted in the Southampton County Militia in 1780 under Capt. Whitehead & Col. Josiah Parker for about the same length of service, and marched to Stoner's Mill near Smithfield in Isle of Wight Co., and then to Suffolk, where he remained until his tour was up.  For his third tour, he enlisted in the militia in April 1781 under Capt. Whitehead and Col. Gaskins for about the same term and marched to Petersburg.  There, an engagement with the British forces under Gen. Philips occurred, and the American forces retreated to Chesterfield Court House and then to the "coal pits in the same county....& thence to Tuckahoe Ferry on James River..&  thence down to Richmond.  That at this last place, they met the Regular Army under Gen. De Lafayette who took command.  After many maneuvers with the British--who had burnt Manchester on the night before the declarant reached Richmond--the company to which this declarant belonged was ordered down to New Kent Court House & from there they marched back to Richmond--thence they crossed the James River at Richmond & marched down to Osborn's..a little place between Richmond and Petersburg--and thence they crossed the James River again at Wilton's ferry---thence they marched back to Richmond and there remained seven or eight days and thence march to Hanover--where this declarant was discharged."

On August 7, 1781, he entered the Militia for a 2-3 month's term in Southampton County under Captain Whitehead and Col. John Brooke Wells.  They marched to Meades Mill, Nansemond County, VA, and then to the Glebe on the Nansemond River near Portsmouth.   They returned by way of Smithfield to about a mile below Williamsburg and thence to Yorktown.  This declarant was at Stone Mill, a few miles from Yorktown, when the British troops surrendered there.  He was dismissed "without any regular discharge."  Signed: Samuel (X) Sandeford

**A signed statement by John (X) Scarborough and Samuel Scarborough note that they were residents of Southampton Co., VA, during the Revolutionary War, were acquainted with the applicant and knew that he served in the War.
