The next year when Captain Broadwater and the Virginia soldiers joined General Braddock's army. Samuel Jenkins went too. Jenkins was not a member of the army. He was paid to help the army as a driver of a provision wagon. General Braddock paid 15 Schillings per day for each wagon with 4 good horses and driver. Jenkins was one of over 200 wagoners on the Braddock Campaign. A young Daniel Boone was also on this list as a wagoner.
