- Names of his children are from his will and from the story of one of his children's (Samuel's) children (this recorded in Caughron 47).
Caughron records a visit to his grave, and gives transcriptions of the 14 stones in the cemetery on his property.
There is a town in Pendleton Co., Kentucky named "Demossville" which is apparently named after this family; it was chartered in 1860 (See USGenWeb for Pendleton Co., Kentucky). "The DeMoss family," according to the history of Demossville on this site, "was buried in a cemetery near the Campbell County line on the banks of the Licking River." He was reburied in Grandview Cemetery in Campbell Co. in 1965.

This page collects the people on this site who served in the Revolutionary War. Some are militia; some served in the Line troops. It includes both loyalists and patriots. There may well be others on the tree who should be included. Some could use more secure evidence: genealogical histories often say that someone "fought in the Revolution," but this can be family legend rather than fact.
Sources are cited under each person's page. War and Pension records can be found on line at the National Archives. Genealogies can be ordered from the DAR and the SAR, but their lists only include those whom people have used to join, not all veterans.
