Biographical or historical data
The office of the state agent and commissary of stores was created by an ordinance passed by the third revolutionary convention on August 21, 1775. In 1777 the office was divided, and different persons were appointed state agent and commissary of stores. William Armistead, who served as commissary of stores until the office was discontinued in February 1782, was responsible for the storage and distribution of supplies acquired by the state agent's office for the troops in the Illinois country, in Pennsylvania, and in Virginia. After February 1782 the commissary's functions were assumed first by the commercial agent, then by the quartermaster general in October 1782.
