DAR will not accept the statement of Sylvester Blackwell that his grandfather, Joel Blackwell, fought in the Battle of Cowpens. DAR wants the militia unit in which he served. This, of course, is an impossible task since most NC counties do not have surviving lists of militia units which served at the Battle of Cowpens.

I think there are some papers that Daniel's descendants have which got them land for his service. He died before the 1832 pension law was passed. This is not my line and I have not really worked on Daniel.

Isaiah was a Tory and there is documentation. He also lost his property in Rutherford Co. NC because of this.

Write me directly if you are interested.
