  •  Notes 
    • "Capt. (Humphrey) Barnett" was also one of James' brother John's commanding officers in militia service; it would seem likely, though cannot be absolutely demonstrated, that the Darwin brothers undertook some of their respective periods of militia service together.

      Hugh T. Harrington notes on "General Henderson":

      William Henderson is listed in Moss (2: Patriots, p. 436.) 1748-1788, As Lt. Colonel he was taken prisoner at the fall of Charleston, exchanged in November 1780 he was transferred to the 1st Regiment January 1, 1781. Sept 1781 he was promoted to Colonel. He served to the close of the war and during 1781 and 1782 he was a brigadier general of SC State troops.
