VA Militia in the Revolutionary War,1482 PART II Virginia's Share in the Military Movements of the Revolution, page 55
ARBOGAST, ADAM.--Pocahontas, Nov. 6, 1832. Born. 1760. Indian spy, 1776 or 1777. Drafted, and marched under Capt. John McCoy and Lt. Joseph Gwin to West's fort on West Fork of Monogahela, then down the river to Lowther's Fort, then lower yet to Nutter's Fort, where he remained much of the three months, and finally to Coontie's Fort, where troops were called in consequence of the Indians killing a write woman while she was spreading hemp in a field. Volunteered, 1778, as Indian spy under same Captain, and marched to Warm Springs, whence he, together with George Hull, John Gum, and Conrad Fleisher, were ordered to Crabbottom to guard that locality, and there remained the rest of his time. At another time he marched from his home (now Highland), across Greenbrier River to head of Seneca in pursuit of Indians. Date not given (1781?). [p.55]

Pg 2514288 Adam Arbogast stated in a declaration he made in Nov 6, 1832 when he was 72 years of age, that he had served with George Hull, Conrad Fleisher & John Gum in the same company in the Revolutionary War. This John Gum would probably be John 4 Gum.
