Military Monday: Revolutionary War in NC & SC




Recently I have come across a website that lists thesoldiers from North and South Carolina who served in the Revolutionary War. There are pages and pages of soldiers.




You can search by: State, First or Last Name, Rank, Regiment or Key Words. Or, you can just browse but be sure you have lots of time because there is lots of information.

I found several of my ancestors, including Richard Dillon, my 5th great grandfather. The data matched information I had found on other sites.


The only reservations I have in using the website is that I do not know where the data has come from. “Data provided from the website Carolana.” That’s all I have been able to discover so far. Has anyone else tried this site? I'd like to hear your thoughts.

New to me, looks as if it's set up to provide the Service or pension record for each individual.

That looks like good information. I don't have NC or SC ancestors so I have never used this database.

Wendy, it is loaded with information. Too bad it is not helpful for you.
