Historical Information

The Loudoun County Military Records are extracts from rosters which list military personnel and officers enrolled in various units from the Revolutionary War to the year 1861. The lists in this collection are both photocopied and handwritten.

Scope and Content

The first records are from the years 1779-1782, and may contain information such as soldiers' names, dates of enlistment, location in the government roster, date and location of death, and names of soldiers' wives and sons. Militia lists from the Revolutionary War are particularly concerned with soldiers from the Third, Fifth, and Seventh Virginia Regiments. The rosters from the War of 1812 include lists of members of the Thirty-Seventh, Forty-Fourth, Fifty-Fifth, Fifty-Sixth, Fifty-Seventh, Sixtieth, and Eighty-Ninth Regiments. These rolls may contain information concerning rank, commencement of service, expiration of service, place of residence, place of discharge, distance of place of discharge to place of residence, names present, and additional remarks. The concluding folders are regimental payrolls from the 1830s through the year 1861. These rosters list name, rank, commencement of service/settlement, ending of pay, time paid for, amount of pay, subsistence, retained bounty, total amount [of pay], and additional remarks.

The Loudoun County militia lists are the only items in this collection.
