Summary
These records contain certificates showing that proof of military service during the colonial wars was presented to and accepted by the issuing authority, either a county court or Lord Dunmore, the royal governor. Dated 1774, 1779, and 1780, the certificates include the name of the soldier; his rank, unit, and length of service; the county in which his service was proved, which was not necessarily his county of residence; and, on the reverse, the number assigned the certificate and any assignments which may have been made on the certificate up to the time the warrant was issued
