Thanks for your replies.I copied the pension papers for Thomas and Winefred Pasley from the microfilmed copies at the National Archives is Washington, DC.The papers included the following letter.
I do hereby certify that I enlisted Thomas Paslay in Buckingham county Virginia in the regular service of the United States of America and to the best of my recollection it was in the fore part of the year 1779.I was then legally authorised to recruit for the army and the said Paslay was sworn in as a regular soldier by Colonel John Cavel of said county and marched from thence to Fredericksburgh and shortly afterward he was marched to the south and was taken prisoner at the seige of Charlestown in South Carolina and I think it was five years or nearly so before he was released and returned home. Given under my hand this 1st day of September 1826 his George X Adcock mark Shelby county [initials] I do hereby certify that the above certificate was sworn to and subscribed before me. given under my hand as a Justice of the Peace in and for the county of Shelby this 1st day of September 1826Geo. Bergen [I can't make out the initials here or next to Shelby county, above]
In his application for a pension, Thomas Pasley says that he was taken to the West Indies.
Also included in the papers is the following statement.
Shelby County [initials illegible]
I George Bergen do certify that George Adcock Sen'r(?) is a very old man by(?) his appearance and the best information I have he is [there is a blemish in the microfilm covering the word by, above, and the age, here, but I believe it says ninety] years old or upwardshe appears to be a man of truth and veracity and there is no doubt but he was a recruiting official in the revolutionary war given under my hand this 24th day of November 1826 Geo Bergen [initials illegible]
Also, I can't be sure about the word after George Adcock, above, but I think it is Sen'r.
