These Revolutionary War Pension applications may be found as images at Heritage Quest. Access can be gained to Heritage Quest at many public libraries. Mr. C. Leon Harris has worked many hours to provide us with a transcription of these images. Some are difficult to read. If you have a patriot that you don't see here, please transcribe the pension application and send it along. I'll post it. This is a work in progress, so bookmark this page so you can check back ocassionally.

I will add this list of Bedford countians who served in the war, but may not have applied for a pension, which has been extracted from the book by By J. T. McAllister, Hot Springs, Virginia; Copyright 1913 by McAllister, Facsimile Reprint by Heritage Books, Inc. 1989, 337 pages incl. Index. Virginia Militia in the Revolutionary War extracted for computer file by William M. Hunt 12/1/2000


Hi Rena,

I'm not sure whether there are errors in that particular list, but in general there are quite a large number of errors in McAllister's Book. His list is only for the militia, and I believe was taken from county records. Some of the errors might be in the original documents. The ones I spotted are as follows:

Green, Moses should be Greer, Moses

Leftwich, Uriah should be Leftwich, Urial

Murphy, William omitted from p188 but his pension application is abstracted (#157)

Otley, John should be Otey, John

Price, Brown and Price, Bowen are probably the same person, Bowen Price Rentree, Isaac and Rentfro, Isaac are the same person, Rentro or Renfro being the common spelling, to be safe it might be better to go to the original source, if available.

There are many pension applicants that I have transcribed that are not in McAllister's list, either because they weren't mentioned in the county records or because they were in Continental service.

C. Leon Harris

If you know of anyone else, please contact me, and I'll ask Mr. C Leon Harris to help locate the application.

We are greatful for all the work on this and I dedicate this page to C. Leon Harris
