David Carlton

This information is contributed by Don Matthews

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.
