BIographical History of North Carolina from Colonial TImes
Samuel A'Court Ashe pgs 348 - 356
"Though he later removed to Chatham County, Basil Manly took up his residence in Bladen County when he first came to North Carolina, He rose to the rank of captain during the War of the Revolution, and was one of the most courageous champions of independence to be found in his section. Many fierce skirmishes were fought in the vicinity of Bladen, where traditions of Captain Manly and a famous black charger , on which he was usually mounted, still survive . He was the companion in arms of Colonel Robeson, Colonel Brown, and Colonel Owen, partizan leaders, who, like Kenan, of Duplin, deserve to live in story along with Mation and Sumter of South Carolina. Some account of the exploits of this officer will be found in a work by the Reverend E.W. Caruthers, entitled "The Old Noth State in 1776", eidtion of 1854 )firdt series). Captain Manly settled shortly after the war in Chatham County, and died there on May 15, 1824. The Raleigh Register of May 24th following announced his death as follows:
"Died: At his residence on Oak Mount, in Chatham County, on the 15th inst., in the eighty-second year of his age, Basil Manly, Eeg., an active and zealous officer of the Roveloution, and distinguished through the course of a long life for energy and decusuib if character. Kind and affectionate in social and domestic life, he died without an enemy, universally esteemed as an honest man."
