Roster of South Carolina Patriots in the American Revolution, page 856, lists Thomas Shannon as having served 213 days as a horseman in the Militia in 1781 & 1782, in the Company of Col Richard Winn, commanded by Col William Hill. At some point he was made a Captain. In doing research, the name Capt. Thomas Shannon comes up many times in the Pension Applications of other Revolutionary War Soldiers, as having riden with the Captain, on patrol in search of Tories. I do not find any Pay/Muster cards or Muster Rolls with his name on them.
