George Rogers Clark:
On page 343 which is not available for preview

. . . . Moses Henry, John Small, and others in a petition to Clark, who was

Hugh Henry of Robertson County, Tennessee who was Lt. and Sgt. in the
Company of Capt. Donelson in the Regt. Commanded by Col. Shelby in the VA

Hugh Henry (served) 13 months from 1777

His pension commenced 21st ? Dec 1832 and ended at his death April 17, 1834.

His brother David Henry could attest to his service. Their brother Issac
served but is now deceased.

David Henry applied for revolutionary pension while residing in Robertson

County in 1832. He was born in 1753 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. He

regiment and was in an expedition against the Indians. He enlisted again in

in Captain Thomas Dillard's company in Colonel George Rogers Clark's
