In searching for my own Revolutionary War Ancestors, I came across these Public Service Claims for King George County.As Mr. Edwin Joseph Dowling states in his book, Dishmans in America, “The farmers of America were really the commissary Corps of the Army during the Revolutionary War.”Therefore, I feel that these Patriots who rendered material aid during the American Revolution performed a very valuable service.
The following records were copied by the author from records on file in the Archives Division, Virginia State Library, Richmond, Virginia.
