    here is a story I found–

    Revolutionary War Soldier

    My grandfather told me that during the War of the Revolution, the Quakers in the settlement where he was born in Guilford County, North Carolina did not enlist in the army of the patriots because they did not believe in war, even though their sympathies were with the revolution. Their families had come from Wales so as to be free to worship as Friends, and Jacob Clearwaters, his father, was a Friend preacher. (Last statement is questionable).Jacob I had been married during the War. When Gates, Green and Morgan were having their campaign with Cornwallis, the struggle was brought into the neighborhood where these people lived, so my great grandfather, Jacob, with others of his fellow Quakers joined the American Army and fought for several months. He was a private in Captain John Johnston’s Company in Colonel John Collier’s regiment of North Carolina Militia commanded by John Butler, Brigadier General. His name appears on a company payroll dated December 22, 1780, which shows that he was paid from September 8th to December 22nd, 106 days – total $176. His service may have been of a non-combatant nature.Information taken from Rev. John F. Clearwaters’ SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) as told by Rev. James A. Clearwaters.
