John Leisure - Spy during Revolution

I was rummaging around on the web the other day - as I am wont to do frequently - and I came across the record as seen below. It comes from the olonial Records of Pennsylvania, Vol. XIV, Minutes of the Supreme Executive Council, Pg. 199, Published by the State, 1851-1853. Council meeting September 6, 1784.

The second paragraph records the payment of 31 pounds, ten shillings "for services as spies on the western frontiers" to several men included one John Leisure.

Does anyone have any information as to who this John Leisure may be?
