    Continental Army Roster from Shepherdstown

    Shepherdstown in the Olden Times
    Shepherdstown Registry ( Vol.1,#10)
    February 5,1850

    In our last article we noticed the legislation connected with the establishment and progress of the town. There were other laws enacted by the House of Burgesses, but we do not deem them of sufficient interest to the general reader, to be inserted. The incidents & events of the Revolutionary War are held by every American in sacred remembrance, but to many persons now residing in Shepherdstown, they possess a peculiar & personal interest. The descendants of those who acted a noble part in the achievement of our liberty, are justly proud of their ancestry, & it is no wonder they love to hear & tell of "the scenes they saw, & the deeds they performed".

    It has been frequently asserted this ancient borough furnished more officers and soldiers to the Continental Army, in proportion to its inhabitants, than any other town in the State, & we are prepared to prove from the records that the assertion has foundation in truth. We are credibly informed, that of the 300 Privates who enlisted & volunteered there, more than 100 were citizens of the town & that the later two thirds died in service.

    The annexed list of officers & privates has been prepared with great care, and we have no doubt that the names and services of many of them are familiar to our older citizens as household words. We shall notice some of the incidents in their lives, & trust that the rising generation will imitate their glorious examples in all things connected with the honor & welfare of our common country:
