Biographical/Historical Information

Philip Lightfoot of Culpeper County, Virginia served as a lieutenant in the Continental Army Artillery from 1778-1781. He was commissioned as lieutenant in the Virginia militia and as captain in the 8th U. S. Infantry Regiment. His heir [Philip Lightfoot, Jr.] put in a claim for his Revolutionary War service pension in 1831 so he was apparently dead by that year.

Scope and Content Information

Papers of Philip Lightfoot of Culpeper County, Virginia including his commissions as lieutenant in the Second Battalion, 5th Regiment, Virginia militia and as captain in the 8th U. S. Infantry Regiment and papers relating to his service in the U. S. Army including records of a recruiting party, enlistment pledges, muster rolls, records of rewards offered for deserters and descriptions of U. S. Army uniforms. There are legal papers in the collection and accounts and business correspondence of merchants in Culpeper (James L. Markham, Samuel Porter, and Merrick Starr). Apparently, the later papers in the collection belong to another Philip Lightfoot [perhaps a son.] One of the two men or perhaps, both, were lawyers. The collection contains a letter, 5 July 1809, written by William Wirt as well as four pages of genealogical information on the Lightfoot family including slave births.
