I use BKM to mean the Battle of Kings Mountain.
I use Vols to mean the units of Cols William Campbell, John Sevier and Isaac Shelby collectively.
District was the South Carolina term for county before counties were formally organized.
DD214 is the well known term for military record.
Apparently Trish Carden, www.tcarden.com/tree/ensor/Kingsmountainroster.html, added names of soldiers from all sources, some of them merely rumors. Many of the pension declarations show men who were under officers (Campbell, Cleveland, Sevier, Shelby) at the Battle of Kings Mountain (BKM) but were with that officer in other engagements, not at BKM. Multiple men with common names do not rule out that another soldier of the same name was at BKM. Multiple spellings of a name in behalf of an illiterate add to the confusion.
Veterans Administration apparently began assigning file numbers by categories, S for soldiers, W for widows and orphans, R for rejected. With ongoing appeals, reversed decisions, and subsequent widow’s claims the file numbering pattern has some in the wrong pile. Samuel Newell’s file R7617 has maybe fifty pages of papers. Its number suggests that the initial ruling of the bureacrats was a rejection which perhaps influenced a later approval to be downgraded from the captain rank.
