Hi -

This is not my line but I thought I would pass on the following which may be of interest, as it qualifies as rendering service during the Revolutionary War.

Thomas T. Cooper, husband of Elizabeth Rea (Dau. of James Rea Sr.), gave service during the Revolution.

Reference COMPLETE INDEX AND ABSTRACT OF THE HENRY COUNTY ORDER BOOKS #1 AND #2 (1777-1782), Compiled by Charles P. Blunt, IV, page 66, Court Date 27 May 1779: David Lanier is appointed to furnish Elizabeth Cooper, wife of Thomas Cooper who is in the Continental Service, with forty pounds worth of provisions.

Also of interest: page 56, Court Date 15 Feb. 1779: Betsey Williams, orphan of John Williams, deceased, came into Court and made choice of Thomas Cooper as her guardian. William Brown was his security.

Ibid., (Revolutionary War Public Service) page 170, 1 March 1782. Court was held for adjusting claims for property impressed or taken for Public Service: Thomas Cooper produced a certificate for 700 pounds of beef.

Best wishes and good luck -

Bruce
