This war was likely to have been unpopular in the upper New River community served by the Osborne, Cox, Baker and Swift militia companies.
Quakers preferred to send peace emissaries to the Indians instead of troops -- such as Thomas Beals (who lived in the Chestnut Creek community off and on from 1782 to 1795) .
The Chestnut Creek neighborhood for the most part did not participate in the Osborne and Cox companies and Swift's militia company did not exist until 8 September 1779.
The two companies to the west of Chestnut Creek, Capt. Cox's did partially participate in the Cherokee war, but the county commanders complained that they did so with no enthusiasm.
Before they were in North Carolina, most of their familiess had migrated thusly: A large percentage of the Quakers and non-Quakers were of Scotch or Irish ancestry. The area to the west and east of them had been previously settled by Long Hunters and their relatives.
The Long Hunters had a very diverse ancestry including: New England Puritans who had moved to New Jersey and then later to the Piedmont of North Carolina, Quakers like Daniel Boone from Pennsylvania, Germans from the Shenandoah valley, Eastern Virginians who were converted to Baptists and moved to old Bedford Co., VA, Presbyterians from Pennsylvania and old Augusta Co., Virginia and people of mixed race ancestry, possibly Saponi Indian mixed with European, many who came from old Lunenburg Co., VA.
The cause of American Independence and the Regulator cause of 1771 are in many ways one.
There is no evidence that Swift's company, as such, participated in the major battles in North Carolina, but several individual members of the company did go to North Carolina and joined with old neighbors there in the American army.
The exception to this may be James Blevins (but probably not).
The Revolutionary War in the upper New River can be divided into two parts.
The first part, 1776-1779, was a war against the Cherokee.
The second phase of the war begins with the attack of the British on the Carolinas and their initial victories at Camden and elsewhere.
As they moved northwards into the North Carolina homeland of the Swift company, the cause of the Whigs became more popular with the Swift company.
Following the Battle of Alamance, 1771 a group of intermarried families left the Piedmont of North Carolina and moved just across the Virginia border into virgin wilderness along Chestnut Creek and its tributaries.
