Revolutionary War Soldiers of Western North Carolina: Burke County, Volume I
I found a great source record last week at the library. It’s a book called Revolutionary War Soldiers of Western North Carolina: Burke County, Vol. 1. The author is Emmet R. White and it was published in 1984 by Southern Historical Press, Inc. of Easley, S.C.
It has biographical sketches on many soldiers, including summaries of military service, later life, land holdings, and census locations. Two of my ancestors are included: Captain Thomas Hemphill
and Captain Thomas Lytle
If you are looking for information on patriots of the American Revolution, this is a resource worth investigating.
