Revolutionary Pensioners Of The Sourh.

I have a new index that deals with pension applications of the men of the revolutionary war who are from the south. However this is a little miss leading, true these men are from the south, however many fought for other states that were not southern. All these men are now living in a southern state and are putting in for a pension from that state.

I will list a few names, as there are to many to put here. I will give just enough information so you may know you have the right person. I have all the pension application for all the men listed here.

Note. Those of you who didn’t find a name of interest here can ask for a look up, as I have over 7, thousand pension application of the men of the south. If you ask for a look up the man must be from the south. Please remember to give ( the title of this page ) when asking information on a name or ( I may not be able to help you. ) My address can be found in my profile.
