Today was a good day. I took Ladybug for a walk down the street. She doesn’t like to walk far. My crazy cat, Cola, found the brown snake he had yesterday. We brought him in the house to save the snake and he was mad.
I did some research on Thomas Donaldson in Rutherford Co, NC. I found out that soldiers in the Revolutionary War could move between unit. In this case, Thomas enlisted in the 5th South Carolina Regiment on April 2, 1776 and then enlisted in the Tryon County Militia in October, 1777 for 30 days. Most tours lasted 60 to 90 days. I am not sure if he saw much fighting because 4 of his children were born during the Revolutionary War.
I also found a John Cook and James Cook in the Rutherford County Militia so I will have see if they tie into my Cook ancestral line.
