Totally unrelated (but I lost your e-mail)

Looking at "Roster of the North Carolina troops in the Continental Army
Thomas, Abishai; Catlin, Lynde; Mifflin, Benjamin
Volume 16, Pages 1002-1197" which is online at

I found several Hearns/Herns:
Hearn, James, served in Ballard's Company, enlisted 20 Jul 1778 for 9 months

Hearn, Benjamin, served in Bradley's Company, enlisted 20 Jul 1778 for 9 months; discharged 7 May 1779;

Hern, Drury, enlisted in Emmet's Company, 15 May 1776 for 2 1/2 years; discharged 10 Nov 1778;

Hern, Howell, enlisted in Sharp's Company on 21 May 1781, "Omtd" (not sure what this means) in 1781.

Hern, Jno, enlisted in Sharp's Company on 5 Apr 1781; died 20 Feb 1782
