Despite the fact that a totally comprehensive collection is not available, a number of rosters of Patriots of the American Revolutionary War from Bedford County, Pennsylvania have survived. They are maintained in the holdings of the Pennsylvania Archives and are easily available to the researcher in the Second, Third and Fifth Series of the published Pennsylvania Archives.
No other collections of rosters are known to exist.
Transcriptions of all the rosters that appear in the published Pennsylvania Archives have been included in the book, Mother Bedford And The American Revolutionary War, by Larry D. Smith (published by Closson Press.)
The purpose of this section is to provide basic information about the service records of the Bedford County Patriots along with reference to the page(s) of the book, Mother Bedford And The American Revolutionary War in which the Patriot is listed. Additional information may be included in the book which does not appear on this website. All inclusions are footnoted.
