* The Roster contains a series of numbers behind many entries, which appears may have been done in pencil after the fact. I am unsure as to what they mean, but included them anyway. Names to the right in brackets are the names as abstracted by the National Archives and Records Administration. Names to the right in parentheses are suggested alternative spellings, or the full spelling for abbreviated first names, which is included for searching purposes. There are at least two affidavits for pensions referencing service with this company, neither of whom are listed on the roll. It is probable that their service was actually in Jeremiah Pates company, also from Bedford county. These pensions for William English and Jacob White were filed by their respective widows, with supporting affidavits from soldiers with second-hand knowledge of the campaign. This company marched under the command of Colonel Alexander Rose and Major John Ward. Per the testimony of a number of pension applications, this unit was employed in digging trenches as part of the siege of 96. During a night attack by the British on or about June 6, Captain Clement ordered a retreat and deserted his unit under fire. The men stood firm and repulsed the British, resulting in Captain Clement being cashiered and Robert Cobb being promoted to Captain in his place.
