- Note: According to James Bigham's Sons of the American Revolution Application, Edward Lawrence McDaniel served in the South Carolina Militia Captain Thompson or Garrison, and Colonels Lacy and Bratton. He was wounded in the shoulder at the Battle of Rocky Mount (according to Wikipedia this battle took place on 1 August 1780) and his leg was broken by a musket ball at the Battle of Hanging Rock (Wikipedia indicates this battle took place on 6 August 1780). He was lame for the remainder of his life, and received a pension. Bigham's application also states that according to family tradition, Edward's father was killed (or drowned) while attempting to swim a river to avoid capture after Braddock's defeat in 1755. Edward's mother married again and Edward left home when he was about 15 years old, eventually arriving in Chester County, South Carolina, where he married Elizabeth McCaw. Bigham mentions that Edward was apparently born after his father's death.
According to the North America family histories, Edward McDaniel was a private when he served in the South Carolina Militia under Colonels Lacey and Bratton.
According to Find-A-Grave, in 1810, Edward McDaniel applied for a pension due to his wounds during the revolutionary war. His name is on the roll of pensioners in Chester County for 1820.
