West Virginia Revolutionary Ancestors

Whose Services Were Non-military and Whose Names, Therefore, Do Not Appear in Revolutionary Indexes of Soldiers and Sailors


Author: Reddy, Anne Waller
Publication Date: 1930
Reprint Date: 2009
Pages: 93 pp.


This is a list of names of approximately 2,000 West Virginians whose Public Claims are on record in manuscripts at the Virginia State Library. Claims were registered for people who nursed the sick and wounded, fed the troops, furnished supplies, buried the dead, rode express, and manufactured firearms. This list was compiled for the benefit of those who desire to trace ancestors who gave service in the Revolutionary War but whose names do not appear in the published indexes and rolls of Revolutionary soldiers and sailors. This index to the Public Claims is particularly valuable, therefore, because it contains names of patriots whose services are recorded in no other place unless they rendered military as well as non-military service. Each patriot is identified by name and county of residence. At the back of the volume the researcher will find a selection of excerpts from Revolutionary Warrants taken from the records of Berkeley, Botetourt, Greenbrier, Hampshire, and Monogalia counties, Virginia.
