Compatriots In Dunmore's War

From The Kentuckians by Janet Holt Giles:

"Seemed like by 1774, the year of Dunmore's War, there was a wild craze in everybody to go to Kentucky."
Harrod's Fort In Kentucky
"It was Jim Herrod himself came out to welcome us.  Like I said, I'd seen him around during Dunsmore's War, but I didn't to say know him. ....I've seen you somewheres, he said to me then.  At Point Pleasant, I told him.  He laughed.  Why sure, I recollect now.  You was with Evan Shelby's company.  You from Sapling Grove?  The Watauga."
