Soldiers and Sailors of the Eastern Shore of Virginia in the Revolutionary War
Soldiers and Sailors of the Eastern Shore of Virginia in the Revolutionary War - Stratton Nottingham. The information in this volume was taken from several of Nottingham's works which related to service in the Revolutionary War: Revolutionary Soldiers and Sailors from Accomack County, Virginia and Revolutionary Soldiers and Sailors from Northampton County, Virginia: Muster Rolls and Pay Rolls of the Twenty-Seventh Regiment of Virginia Militia, Northampton County 1812. These contained recommendations by the court of persons suitable for officers of the county militia; and the records of commissions from the governor. Of special interest to genealogists are pension applications, which often contain much information on the family of the applicant. Many heirs and descendants are listed. Other persons are named as claimants to be paid for providing supplies and services. A full name index adds to the value of this work.
