Timmons Audited Account documents from the Revolutionary War

The descriptions may not be correct. Please help me interpret these and correctly identify the person. I am beginning to believe a theory of David Mason that a few of these documents are duplicate copies and the person writing them wrote the signature for all the names.

From South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research, Winter 2003 issue, Volume XXI, Number 1 by Judith F. Russell. A frequent problem for researchers interested in South Carolina's Revolutionary soldiers is correctly linking a particular document to one of several individuals with identical names. This difficulty is especially apparent with the use of the Accounts Audited Files for Claims Growing out of the Revolution. The whole set of files was moved several times for safe-keeping during the Civil War and, during the process, the records for all men with the same name were usually combined into one file. As one begins to sort out the records, a review of the existing compilations of service records (e.g., Bockstruck, Moss, White) might be extremely useful, since the earlier works might point out other source documents which can be reviewed. But examination of the original documents is always critical, especially where there is conflicting evidence. After as many records as possible have been gathered, the researcher may review each document for evidence of internal and external associations which will help link the document with a particular soldier. When looking at the Accounts Audited files themselves, it is very helpful to review each page (or frame of the microfilm) and to note not only the stub indent numbers which may appear, but also the various amounts of payment indicated. Stub indent numbers were similar to our modern check stub numbers and were used to keep track of accounts. But, even when the stub indent number in not on the page, identical payment amounts might be matched. Second, one should note any names found in addition to that of the soldier. Frequently there are names of witnesses, justices of the peace, or people to whom the indents were signed over. The names may be matched on the pages of the Accounts Audited files, but may also be used to link the document to a specific area of the state. Neighbors often joined and fought in the same regiments, so external evidence may be found for the assignment of Accounts Audited document by comparing the names found in the file with muster rolls, early census materials or other legal documents such as deeds.
