Brief Genealogical Notes


From my nephew, Scott West: Southern Campaign Revolutionary War Pension Applications & Rosters http://southerncampaign.org/pen/ The web site below was passed along by Compatriot Baron Fain [Sons of the American Revolution]. There are almost 9000 applications from Revolutionary War solders involved primarily in the Southern Campaigns presently on this site. Most of these applications were filed in the early 1830s by the soldiers, or their widows, pursuant to a Congressional act of 1832 allowing pensions for the soldiers or widows. It's a great site for historical research on the battles and to perhaps find the applications from your patriot ancestor.

Please make a note to remember that our TSGS meeting times has changed to begin one half hour earlier... the September 14 meeting will start at 7:00PM at Willard Library!
