In Response To: Free Manleys of North Carolina ()
I don't think that all of the pension applications actually survived, but here are some names from Paul's website:
i. ?Arthur, born before 1776, head of a Halifax County household of 4 "free colored" in 1820 [NC:157]. He was in the First Company detached from the Halifax County Regiment in the War of 1812 [N.C. Adjutant General, Muster Rolls of the War of 1812 from the Militia of North Carolina, 19]. He was living in Weldon in May 1844 when he made a declaration in Halifax County court to obtain the pension of Moses Manly, deceased [M805, reel 807, frame 712
There were 2 Littletons, neither of which were in the War.
By the way, Revolutionary War Pensions are available for free on Heritage Quest, which can be accessed from home with your library card if your library is subscribed to the service. There are also a number of transcribed applications at the website below.
