I would appreciate any help in establishing whether any of my above named ancestors served during the Revolutionary War.

The information I have on them is thus:

Abraham Campbell b. abt 1737 d. abt 1805 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Wife was Darcus

John Miller, Sr. b.abt 1735 d. abt 1826 in West Virginia wife was Barbara Mauzy

Charles Brooking b. abt 1758 of Ablemarle County, Virginia
wife was named Ann They had a daughter named Rhoda born in 1779.

Adam Mann b. abt 1761 in Augusta County, Virginia wife was Mary Maddy They had a daughter named Elizabeth

Benjamin Stephens b. April 15, 1754 in Orange County, Virginia, d. September 7, 1839 in Kenton County, Kentucky wife was Dorothy Jemimah Waller

Thanks in advance. If I've asked for too many lookups with this request, please let me know and I'll break it up.

Hi Laura,
WOW! Thank you SO much for your EXTREMELY PROMPT response. I am so excited to learn that at least two of my direct ancestors were Patriots. A cousin of mine said that James Halstead was also one, but I have not confirmed that.
I will definitely order their records and document my relation for membership. Thanks again!

Jerry
