The 1788 Sullivan County, Tennessee
Militia List of Capt. Thomas Vincent

The following militia payroll is for Sullivan Co NC (TN) men serving under Capt. Thomas VINCENT in the Chicamauga Campaign of 1788 who were "entitled to compensation for equipping themselves with horses and provisions."

N.B. This list was in poor condition, and as a result it was very difficult, impossible in some instances, for the transcriber to decipher the script. Notations within brackets [ ] are those of the transcriber, and indicate probabilities as versus certainties.

Note: Some of the men listed below, including Capt. Thomas VINCENT, were residents of Washington County, not Sullivan.
