Blairs in the Revolutionary War

Charlotte has service records for the following BLAIR men who served in the Revolutionary War. Those marked with an check indicate that these men have been identified as to wives, families, etc and she has more exact dates and information on them. In some cases she also has proof of NON-service (especially in the state of PA).

When a number appears in ( ) it means that Charlotte has that number of records for service by men of that name. Many of these men have not been identified and in some cases duplicate records may (or may not) refer to the same soldier serving at different times and in different units. In a very few rare cases these are "service claims" based on family traditions for whom no actual service can be verified, but the vast majority of these records as based on verifiable service dates and units.

We are actively seeking identification of those not yet identified. Please include your BSGR membership # in all e-mail if you are a member. If you are not a member (why not?) please tell Charlotte that so she doesn't spent time searching for paperwork that does not exist.
