Revolutionary War Pension of Jacob Randall
Jacob Randall served as a private during the Revolutionary War and lived out his later life in Luzerne, New York. He enlisted in the Massachusetts Line in June of 1778 in the town of Dorchester. He served for 9 months in the company commanded by Captain White in the fifth regiment commanded by Colonel Putnam. He applied for a pension in April of 1818 and received $8 a month. He is buried in Leavens Cemetery, Luzerne.
Several years ago, I obtained Jacob Randall's pension file from the National Archives. Rather that manually transcribing the file into HTML pages (there are 11), I decided that it would be best to present the documents as I received them. I've scanned them and made them available through the use of Zoomify. In order to view them, all you'll need is the Flash Player.
