Revolutionary War Soldiers

Excerpt from "History of Kentucky" by Judge Lewis Collins, Vol. 1 Revolutionary War Soldiers

Those living in Kentucky, including those who moved there after the war, as of 1840.  As Judge Lewis Collins said "It is evident from their ages, some were too
young to be in the  Revolutionary war, except as drummers or wagon boys, while a few others were probably in the Indian Wars soon after the Revolution." Some
names are of their widows, who are receiving pensions.  There were also veterans who refused a pension.
