The claimants are his children and the 24th of ______, they made a claim. The claimants said their father wrote a private record of his service.

Vaughn says when he joined Marion in October 1780, he found Jones in Malone's company of militia of South Carolina and that he had previously left the Continental Service under Green. Only item of service relied upon the date of which is is given is 68 days in the militia as private of foot from May 7 to Aug. 28, 1781, a period between the date of the Battle of Guilford and Eutaw Springs, when Jones is shown by Pollard's affidavit to have been in service under General Green.

Evidence. J.I Coombs
On Jan. 9, 1855 William Vaughn, aged 90, a resident of Sumter District, a Revolutionary pensioner under certificate No. 23,437, was duly sworn and made a deposition as to William Jones; he had made an earlier deposition that was not minute in its factual representation to establish the service of William Jones. He stated that he had no acquaintance or knowledge of but one William Jones who served in Sumter. Although deponent was very young at the period when or sometime after the period that William Jones referred to came with other Continental soldiers, names Joshua Stafford, John Pollard, John Peek and many others whose names he cannot now recollect without having their names called; that said persons came with General Green from Virginia to the aid of South Carolina, that said Jones married one Ann Freeman, one or two years before the deponent joined the army in 1780 and came to reside with his family within 1 1/2 miles of where deponent's father resided in Sumter District; that said Jones was in the company of Capt. Long and others whose names he does not recollect. After his term expired in the Continental service, said Jones joined the South Carolina militia with many others of the Continental soldiers and before the deponent mustered into the service in Oct. 1780 under Capt. Malone in which company he found William Jones. When he and about 20 others joined it when they were commanded by Capt. Malone, Joseph Hill and George McCalling under Colonels Peter Horry and Richard Richardson.
William Jones continued to serve in the war with the exception of a few days leave of absence occasionally until the hostilities ceased in June 1782 after which said Jones was appointed to take the lead of scouting parties against robbers and thieves and Torries and on one occasion Jones was with about 20 others. They surprised a large group of the enemy, killing two and captured 10 whom they delivered to Col. Postell. Jones and the deponent and the other soldiers were not on a regular basis on duty to the cessation of the hostilities, yet they held themselves in readiness to join the service again whenever called for but were not again called into service. The foregoing statement of facts applies to John Bradford, John (Jr.?) Bradford, William Broadway, Abraham Richards and Obediah Spears and many others whom this deponent would know if their names were mentioned.
