Vincent Tapp...Revolution War
To correct MzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzOlsons remarks conerning threeVincents in the war, there were only two. Vincent Tapp of Frederick was issued two land grants, one as Pvt and one as a SMAJ. Both signed my Merryweather. The second Tapp is Vincent from Culpeper. Also the Frederick Vicnent is from the English side. First he was given a pension for serving, then congress passed a bill to award pensions to those that were wounded, Vincent qualifed under the new bill. He was removed from the first pension, and placed on the pension which was the one approved by congress. These severeal actions have caused several arm chair researchers to state that three served in the war.
If I'm wrong in my statements, will someone please submit the proof thatthree Vincents servedin the war
Vincent's war records are available at the archives. Careful study of his pay records will indicate that his name was spelled differently several times, but it was the same person.
Some of his records were transcribed due to the poor condition of the original, therefore if there is a mistake it will be difficult to discover the problem unless a person can study the originals.

I will be placing sections of my book on my blog site. I haven't posted lately, my other site crashed or in fact my server crashed. I lost all the stuff that I posted in the last few years.
