Collection of land bounty records for soldiers of Maryland in the Revolutionary War

Description

Although no major battles were fought in Maryland during the Revolutionary War, the colony was an important contributor to the war effort. This database is a collection of pension and bounty land claims on the state for military service in the war. Most records provide the soldier's name, birth date, rank, spouse, marriage date, and location of marriage. Many entries also contain unit information, location of service, number of acres awarded, and issue date. It contains over 3,000 pension and bounty applications along with nearly 1,000 marriages of Maryland soldiers and a list of 1,200 proved services of soldiers and patriots from other states. For researchers of Maryland ancestors who served in the Revolutionary War, this can be a useful database.
