Foy Varner recently sent me the following link to a very useful website administered by Will Graves.


Here are found transcripts of Revolutionary War pension applications filed by men who served during the Revolutionary War in the South. There are hundreds of such transcripts found on this page, created by Will Graves and others. Included is the transcript of Ambrose Brewer's application, transcribed by Foy Varner. There links for eleven men named Brewer found on this page. They are:
