Revolutionary War Papers For Loudoun County Virginia March 1778 – October 1779

About six weeks ago I ordered copies of the Revolutionary War records of my 5th great-grandfather, John Linton.  He was recommended as Lieutenant in 1778 and Captain in 1781.  I share with you today the lists of those soldiers recommended for changes in rank for March of 1778 through October 1779. Hopefully you can use this information!

One other note, several others on this list are very familiar to me.  Daniel Lewis is a relative of Captain John, Scarlett Berkeley is his half-brother.  Joseph Butler is a cousin of the captain’s wife, Ann Mason, and George Mason her brother.
