In "TOWLES of S.C." by Leonardo Andrea, page 2, at the botton of the page lists a Revolutionary War Index from the S.C. State Archives in Columbia in which the names John Towles, Stockley Towles, and John Toles show up, but there is no elaboration of the Revolutionary War service for Stockley or John there. Page 4 states in Estate File 110-3193 Abbeville Co., Stokeley TOWLES died intestate. His estate was administered 7 Feb. 1785 by Martha TOWLES. Her bond was signed by JOSEPH TOWLES and JOSHUA GILLAM.
On page 10 describes in U.S. Revolutionary Pension No. S-32187 for John CHANEY, who described how he and John TOWLES were at a fort on the Congarees where they served under Col. William Washington. They were furloughed and were on their way home and were travelling along the Slauda River when they were set on by a band of Tories. He escaped in the heavy cane brakes, and when he went out into the open he found that the Tories had hanged John TOWLES and left him hanging. Chaney cut him down and buried him under the tree. I wish I could find something more on Stokeley. Perhaps one of Stokeley's descendants in SC can help out with additional information.
