Revolutionary Soldiers in Alabama


Being a List of Names Compiled from Authentic Sources, of Soldiers of the American Revolution, Who Resided in the State of Alabama

This compilation of biographical notices of Revolutionary War soldiers who resided in Alabama was assembled by the Director of the Alabama Department of Archives and History from obituaries drawn from old newspaper files; the Revolutionary Pension Roll, published by the Federal Government, 1833–34; the Census of Pensioners taken officially in 1840 and published in 1841; tombstone inscriptions; well-authenticated data taken from published family histories; the manuscript, Pension Book kept by the State Branch Bank in Mobile; and the personal papers of Mrs. P. H. Mell, former State Historian of the Alabama Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).

The notices vary in length from a paragraph to several pages and provide essential data on age, residence, military service, and other particulars along with citations to the sources. This report was originally published in limited quantity as the department’s Bulletin No. 5 and is now scarce.
