Claims & Memorials
Witness for Jacob Williams

I do Certify that Some time in August or beginning of September 1778 I heard that one Jacob WILLIAMS was taken Prisoner Passing thro’ the upper parts of Georgia towards North Carolina, and carried before one Colo. John Dooly, who had him Searched, and found him to be an Officer in the Florida scout, which appeared by a Commission in his possession.

Some days after I went to the Fort w[h]ere he was confin’d and there saw him in Irons. I spoke with him & advised him what was first to be done and in a few days after I heard he had made his escape.

St. Augustine 14th May 1784

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Audit Office, Class 13, Volume 124, folio 349.
