Thanks as always Don. Along wiith company Order books, the muster reports of WO12 are probably the best tools for determining British company administration, casualties, POWs, transfers to flank companies, locations of units, volunteer promotions etc.
I'm glad you had the musters of the 64th for Graham's story. He briefly served in the 42nd in 1778 before going to the 64th. He is the only regular officer I have come across who remained in America after the war. He was also the brother of Capt. Lt. Samuel Graham
of MacDonald's Highlanders whose journal of the campaign in Virginia is well known.

Gosh, Paul, I don't have a 1783 Army List -
but I know exactly what happened to Lt. James Graham because I have copies of the 64th's muster rolls, which as you know are much more specific than the army lists.
Lt. Graham served in Captain John Kennedy Strong's company until 24 February 1783 when he retired. This is recorded on the muster roll dated Port Royal, Jamaica, 26 July 1783.
The previous existing roll for the company is dated Charleston, 31 March 1782, and shows Graham as present; the intervening rolls for the company are missing. I'd make the guess that he remained in Charleston when the rest of the regiment left.

Although the 64th had gone to reinforce Jamaica (arriving Jan. 13, 1783,) Graham was back in Charleston in time for his daughter to be born there in 1784.
