Thomas Canady (aka Kennedy) Thomas Canady was mentioned prominently in the pension application for Revolutionary War service that David Quinn (W4771)made in 1832 before the Duplin County Court of Appeals and Quarter Sessions. Quinn mentioned in his application that Canady was a still living witness to his (Quinn's) NC Continental Line service. Quinn also mentioned in his sworn testimony that he began his Continental Line service on the same date that Thomas Canady began his and that both Thomas Canady and his (Canady's) brother had served with him (Quinn)in South Carolina. Quinn testified that Thomas Canady and Canady's brother too had been wounded in the fighting (presumably at Eutaw Springs SC in 1781).
