Pension application of Jeremiah Files S13025- "and he again enrolled himself as a volunteer in the Company of Captain William Baskin under General Pickens in the Regiment of Colonel Robert Anderson of the South Carolina Militia near the last of September, in the year 1783 – and marched against the Cherokee Indians and Destroyed their Towns at the big Savannah and Hightower and one town called Van's Village on Long Swamp Creek & Pine Log Town ...."
These skirmishes occurred at the time - September 1783 - that Robert Adair was killed.The area in North Georgia is pretty close to Adair's home in Pendleton SC. Or perhaps Capt. John Norwood was patroling in this general area at this time.We know that Adair was in his company at various times.
I keep looking for a reference to Robert Adair's death in a particular skirmish, but haven't found it yet.
