    • VIRGINIA MILITIA IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR PART II Virginia's Share in the Military Movements of the Revolution page 156 MOSBY, WADE.--Powhatan, Sept. 19, 1832. Born in Powhatan in 1761. About 1777 affiant joined a number of his fellow students at Hampden-Sidney Academy (later a college), in forming a volunteer company. Luke B. Smith, a professor, was captain. Subalterns were, Lt. Samuel Venable and En. Samuel Hackley. Served six weeks at Williamsburg. Was then sixteen years old. A year later the company again went out for six weeks under the same officers, serving at Petersburg. Affiant then quit college, and in fall of 1779 or spring of 1780, was Second Lieutenant under his brother, Capt. Littlebury Mosby (later a General). At Petersburg they joined the cavalry under Col. Banister, of Gen. Lawson's command. The call was because hostile vessels came near on the James. After the defeat of Gates there was a heavy call, and affiant went out under his brother-in-law, Capt. Robert Hughes, serving as adjutant of the regiment. At Moore's Ordinary in Prince Edward, Capt. Cameron, of Buckingham took ill, and affiant was appointed in his place. Was in battle of Guilford under Col. B. Randolph. Col. Carrington, quarter-master-general, laid off the battleground. A fifth tour quickly followed, because Gov. Jefferson wrote Littlebury Mosby to raise all the cavalry he could and go to the aid of Lafayette. L. Mosby called on his subalterns, affiant raising a company and Horatio Turpin another, L. Mosby leading the battalion as major. It lay at Petersburg until the British, under Gen. Phillips arrived, and then the cavalry covered the retreat, taking up the bridge over the Appomattox after the army had crossed. Affiant was then much on vidette service under Col. Call, his own father, militia commandant of county, keeping him to watch Cornwallis while the latter was about Richmond, which was four or five weeks. Married Susanna ----, April 13, 1785. Died June 1, 1834. Widow made application, Oct. 1, 1838.
