According to testimony to a court in Beaufort Co, NC in 1846, two men gave testimony they knew Joel Wall of NC and he had told them he fought with the NC troops at Brandywine and Monmouth. They said he limped from being wounded. Joel also told them he was in New Jersey for several winters. He is listed in the North Carolina military papers as soldier. He was granted 1000 acres for his service after the war. He was born about 1761 and died in 1815.
This testimony was given to support Joel’s widow, Elizabeth’s claim to a widow’s pension.
