Some Tennessee Heroes of the Revolution
Based on the Invalid Lists of 1806 and the Pension Lists of 1818, 1832 and 1840, this book supplies--in addition to name, age, service, residence, and source of information--the date of the pension application; date and place of birth; service record; names of all family members cited in the pension statement; and place or places of migration to, from, or within Tennessee. The 1840 Pension List is especially interesting to researchers as it includes widows' applications. Widows were required to submit proof of marriage and children, and their applications, therefore, constitute a rich vein of genealogical source material.
