Berks Co., PA


Hi,

I am currently redoing the webpage on the Revolutionary War Patriots of
Berks Co., PA.

If you have a patriot from Berks County you are welcome to submit to me for
this webpage.

I am documenting the information.

So if you have a source please include it.

For example, I am going through thr History of Berks County PA in the
Revolution which lists a lot of the Companies during that time.

If you have the name from the DAR Patriot Index, Rev War Pension Lists on
and on.

PLEASE PUT BERKS CO. PATRIOT SUBMIT in the Subject line.

Sincerely,

Christopher T. Smithson
