Revolutionary War & Other Historical Wars

If you have ancestors that served in any of the historical wars, please let me know so I can add them to this page. Thanks to Caroline for adding these records!

The following is from Revolutionary Soldiers in Alabama. BEING A LIST OF NAMES, COMPILED FROM AUTHENTIC SOURCES, OF SOLDIERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, WHO RESIDED IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA.

Compiled by Thomas M. Owen, Director, State of Alabama Department of Archives and History, Montgomery, Alabama. The Brown Printing Co, Printers and Binders, 1911

Prefatory Note

It is believed that the publication of this compilation will be of much practical service to large numbers of people interested in a study of the personal records of the Heroes of the American Revolution. And this is true, although the lists are manifestly incomplete, and the sketches are wanting in many desirable details.

The lists have been made up from altogether reliable and authentic sources. These consist of contemporary obituaries, drawn from old newspaper files, the Revolutionary Pension Roll, published by the U. S. Government as Senate Document 514, 3 volumes, 23rd Congress, 1st Session 1833-34; the Census of Pensioners, taken officially in 1840, and published by the U. S. Government in 1841, in one volume; inscriptions from tombstones; well authenticated data taken from published family histories; and the manuscript, Pension Book, kept officially by the State Branch Bank at Mobile. A few other sources have been drawn upon. Citation of the authority or authorities has been given in each case.

In 1904 Mrs. P. H. Mell published a paper containing thirty sketches, entitled "Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in Alabama." It appears as pp 527-572, Vol. iv, Transactions of the Alabama Historical Society, 1899-1903. Mrs. Mell had been State Historian of the Alabama Division of the Daughters of the American Revolution. While limited in numbers, her paper was prepared with great care. The sketches appear in their proper places in the list here presented, with due credit. Although a few lists of names, either by counties or localities, had been compiled, no pretentious effort, prior to the work of Mrs. Mell had been undertaken.

Inasmuch as this is but a preliminary effort looking to a complete and exhaustive record, the attention of the Department should be brought to any and all errors, to dates and places of death, to places of burial, to the names of those who removed from the State, and to all others whose names ought to be included.
