Revolutionary Soldiers: Resident or Dying in Onondaga County, New York; with a Supplementary List of Possible Veterans - Reverend W. M. Beauchamp. This work is based on a pension list compiled by Franklin H. Chase in 1895 from the county records of 1820 and after. That work was supplemented by visits to 175 cemeteries and comparisons with various rolls, family histories and other sources, such that the original list has now been more than doubled in size to over six hundred soldiers. In addition, there is a short list of men who were possibly Revolutionary veterans, but for whom evidence is inconclusive. The entries are arranged by the town of residence of the soldier. Most of the entries contain a complete transcription of the gravestones of the veteran and his wife, and a paragraph of additional biographical data which frequently tells where the family came from originally. There is also a table giving the locations of the cemeteries mentioned. A full-name index completes this work. (1913, 1990), 2016, 5½x8½, paper, index, 307 pp. 101-B3275 ISBN: 1556132751
