This an alphabetical listing of approximately 2,000 names compiled for the benefit of those who desire to trace ancestors who gave service in the Revolutionary War, but whose names do not appear in the indexes of Revolutionary soldiers and sailors. Pacifist patriots, women as well as men, who nursed the sick and wounded, whether enemy or friend; who fed the troops; who cared for the needy families of the soldiers; who carried the dead and wounded from the battlefields. Names in West "Virginia Revolutionary Ancestors" are taken from the Revolutionary Public Claims and are not to be found in other indexes unless both military and non-military service was rendered. Services recorded in the Public Claims are not only for supplies furnished the army and navy, but also for riding express, transporting prisoners, transporting the sick, transporting provisions, manufacturing firearms. The names of the civil officers of the county and state, serving under the new United States government, are also frequently found. Also, included are excerpts from Revolutionary Warrants taken from the records of Berkeley, Botetourt, Greenbrier, Hampshire, and Monongahela counties, Virginia.
