This 58-page set contains all 3 volumes of a research project of the Westmoreland County Historical Society completed in 1985. It contains eyewitness accounts by those who served. Much of the information is derived from applications filed with the Bureau of Pension in the years that followed the American Revolution. 

Vol. I: Isaac Anderson, Joseph Brownlee, Michael Huffnagle, Robert Hunter, David Shaw and Michael Truby. 

Vol. II: Jacob Byerly, Samuel Craig, Matthew Jack, Robert Orr, and Adam Oury. 

Vol. III: James Chambers, Mathias Fisher, William Guthrie, Archibald Leech, Michael Sanor, and William Wharton. 

If you find the name of an ancestor above, this set is a must for your research. If you have an interest in the participation of western Pennsylvanians in the Revolution, you should find this study very helpful.
