Pensioners for Military Service – Mercer County, Kentucky

IMG_1823

What a great list of Revolutionary War veterans – in Mercer County, Kentucky!  This must have been the area that many veterans moved to after the war.  About 25 veterans are buried at the Old Mud Cemetery, 8 are buried in New Providence Church Cemetery, and I’m sure there are many others throughout the county!  That would be a good project – to make a complete list of Revolutionary War veterans for Mercer County!  We are blessed with such a rich history!

This is a list of Mercer County Pensioners for Revolution and Military Services as returned under the Act for Taking the Sixth Census in 1840.
