Revolutionary War Military Abstract Card File - {series #13.50}
Arranged alphabetically by surname of soldier. The abstract card file contains transcriptions of data extracted from original records in the custody of the State Archives concerning Revolutionary War service in the Pennsylvania Militia, Pennsylvania Line, and the Navy. Note that duty after November 1783 is not considered Revolutionary War service. Information provided is name and rank of soldier, whether active or inactive duty, county of residence, battalion in which served, and record from which information was extracted. Also noted are whether soldier was delinquent and fined or whether militia fines were abated.
The entry "Active Duty" indicates that the soldier saw active duty in either the Pennsylvania Militia or the Pennsylvania Line while "Inactive Duty" indicates that the soldier did not necessarily see active duty. Associators were volunteers who comprised the Military Association, a civilian reserve designed to repel any invasion of Pennsylvania until the collapse of the Association in the winter of 1776-1777. The Pennsylvania Militia was organized under an Act of the Assembly of March 17, 1777 that required compulsory enrollment by constables of all able-bodied white males between the ages of 18 and 53 to repel invaders. The "Flying Camps" were special battalions of Pennsylvania Line troops recruited from the Pennsylvania Associators. Rangers were soldiers who served long periods of enlistment to protect the frontier against Indian incursions. Entries for Depreciation Pay Certificates apply to soldiers who served 1777-1780 when the currency was depreciating and were paid in Continental Bills of Credit that quickly lost value. To compensate for such depreciation, each soldier of the Pennsylvania Line who remained in service in 1781 was awarded a substantial sum in Depreciation Pay Certificates which were both interest bearing and negotiable. In addition, at the end of the war arrears and allowances due were met by issuing to each soldier still in service a number of interest-bearing final settlements called Pierce's Certificates (named after the paymaster who dispensed them).
Some cards show a certificate number that relates to the Militia Loan of 1784-1785. This loan was established to pay individuals for services and goods provided during the Revolutionary War that had not been reimbursed at that time. Note that not all certificate numbers give additional information.

Old St. George Methodist Episcopal Church

Baptisms

Thos Glifson son of Caleb & Sarah Glafson was born 8th of March 1783 & was bapt Nov 17, 1785                      (my note: Thomas Glisson is my ggg gf, for over 20 years I theorized that his parents were Caleb Glisson & Sarah Wiggins by deduction that Thomas named son Caleb and daughter Sarah Wiggins plus other reason , this baptism now proves my theory without any doubt. Also his dob listed is exactly same as his bible record which I have copy of and is listed on this website under Glisson bible records.  Also, from a reference of Knox Co. ILL, Thomas’s son Thomas Runyan Glisson stated his father was born in Carlisle, Cumberland Co. PA, That threw me off course for many years.  I now believe he was born in Philadelphia, Caleb & Sarah Wiggins were married on 14 Dec 1782 at the Swedes Church in Philadelphia, Caleb listed on Post REV War Muster Rol

                                                                                                                                                                           1784 Philadelphia City. Caleb & Sarah’s son Thomas & dau Hannah baptized 1785 in Philadelphia, Caleb list on Post REV muster roll 1789 in Philadelphia.  Thus I am quite confident Thomas b.1783 was born in Philadelphia and above reference to Carlise is in error.  Sarah Wiggins father Thomas did have land in Carlise, so maybe Caleb & Sarah left Philadelphia after 1789 and lived in Carlisle.  Or may below note on marriage of Sarah Glisson to William Steel is correct about Sarah maybe being widow of Caleb and she remarried William Steel whose family was from Carlisle.)

Han Glifson daughter of Caleb & Sarah Glifson was born 10th of October 1784 & bapt Nov 17, 1785                 (my note:  I did have one reference I obtains in Carlisle Pa Historical Society, where a Hannah Glisson died in 1840 in Harrisburg married to Jacob Wright, age 56, but I lost the record this from memory, at time I remember thinking this could be a sister of Thomas. I think that record was above Han Glifson.  Need to find that record again)

Old St Paul’s Church

Marriages

Sarah Glisson to William Steel 1 Aug 1793                                                                                                               (my note: this Sarah Glisson prob born before 1775, which would make her a grand daughter of Thomas b.1705 and Mary? Dau of either Thomas b.1747, or one of his brothers.  Or one other possibility, just theory, Could she be Sarah Wiggins and widow of Caleb Glisson b.abt 1759.  Last record I find on Caleb is 1789 in Philadelphia,  post rev war solder.  At this time.)

These 3" x 5" cards were initially prepared to serve as an index to Samuel Penniman Bates' "History of Pennsylvania Volunteers, 1861-1865," (Harrisburg, 1869-1871). The Office of the Adjutant General later expanded the scope of the cards by transcribing onto them data found on the original Civil War Muster Rolls and Related Records, 1861-1866 {series #19.11}. The information generally includes the soldiers' names, military units, Bates' citations (volume and page), ages at enrollment, descriptions (complexion, height, color of hair and eyes), residences and birthplaces; the dates and places where enrolled; the dates and places where mustered in; and the dates of discharge. The listing is not inclusive.
