The DAR Index shows he didn't receive a pension--at least from the gov. Maybe he received one from the state he served in.
He may have applied to the government but was refused. I have a copy (from National Archives) of an application that was refused (different man) but it doesn't give much info--his age, when & where he applied and the refusal--he wasn't in the Continental Line of the Army. He was in the Militia. You can contact the DAR http://www.dar.org/ and obtain a copy of a woman's approved application who submitted him as her Patriot for membership. I will send you via my other email some instructions for when you get to the site. Also in some large libraries there are DAR Lineage books that list the members and their connection to the Patriot. Ancestry.com has DAR Lineage info--if you are a subscriber.
