David Carlton of Duplin County was an eyewitness who testified for David Quinn before the Duplin County Court of Appeals and Quarter Sessions in 1832. His eyewitness account helped prove Quinn's Revolutionary War military service. (Carlton thereby unwittingly proved his own Revolutionary War military service.) In 1832, Carlton testified that he had seen David Quinn at Bacon's Bridge, SC while they were both serving in the NC Continental Line as part of General Greene's army at Bacon's Bridge, SC in 1782. This was just after Carlton's own term of military service had begun, and just before Quinns term of Continental service ended.
