Most of the names below are men who have documented Revolutionary War or Patriotic Service. There are a few exceptions that have been included. Local tradition recognizes these men to have served in the Revolutionary War, for this reason they have been included, even though official documentation has not been found. Our hope is that by preserving the names of these men, that one day a family researcher will uncover the documentation to prove the service.

The men listed below are buried or were living in Centre County at the time of their death. Centre County was formed in 1800 from parts of Lycoming , Mifflin , Northumberland and Huntingdon Counties. The names are taken from a 281 page book, Centre County, PA, American Revolution Soldiers and Patriots.

The book published in September 1996 includes information on birth date, death date of the soldier or Patriot and spouse. Children and spouses are included. Complete references for each entry. Includes index of all names and cross indexed by maiden name for women.

Cost is $34.75 which includes postage.
