Volunteers Company’s of the United States. 1776-1812

I know a lot of you are looking for a company that your ancestor was in or may have been in, so I have recorded a list of volunteer company’s and State volunteers from each State that I could find. Some State will have none, that’s not to say there won’t any, It’s the way they were recorded. Where I got my information from, Some States may list something like ( Rice Reg. ) I will not record this as I don’t know if this a Militia or a U. S., company. I will only record the names that state Volunteers. I hope you will find that company you are looking for on this page, and if your lucky you may find your ancestor on the roster as well.

Note. These rosters were made up from the United States Pension Rolls, which is housed at the Library of Congress.
