North Carolina Gazette, July 31, 1778.


Deserted from Williamsburg the 19th of April last, Thomas Sandesur, a soldier in my company of State Artillery, forty years of age, six feet high, very slim, dark brown hair, had on when he went away a brown coat, and as he has relations living on New River, Onslow County, and Fishing Creek, near Tarborough have reason to believe he is lurking about either of those places. Fifty dollars will be given to have him delivered to the commanding officer in Williamsburg, and all expences paid.
