Biographical or historical data
The General Assembly, during its May 1781 session, passed an act authorizing the militia when in actual service to receive the same pay as officers and soldiers in the Continental Army. Militia officers sent their payrolls to the auditor of public accounts, who issued printed pay certificates that also were receivable for taxes. During its October 1787 session the General Assembly instructed the auditor of public accounts to stop issuing militia certificates.
