    • Nicholas PROCTOR Rev. War Pension file
      By Colleen Taylor October 25, 2000 at 09:17:16
      I received the Revolutionary War Pension File of Nicholas PROCTOR in the mail today.
      With it there is a letterdated 14 Fevruary 1936 addressed to Mr. B.J. Walter of the Wabash Post #425, American Legion.A.D. Hilleer, Executive Assistant to the Administrator (of what I don't know) wrote the letter.
      I'll quote:"Reference is made to your letter in which you request the Revolutionary War record of Nicholas Proctor who served with the Virginia troops during the Revolutionary War and received pension while residing in the State of Illinois.
      You are furnished herein the record of the only soldier named Nicholas Proctor, under any spelling, found in the Revolutionary War records of this office.The data therein where obtained from the appers on file in pension claim, W. 8557, based upon his service in the Revolution.
      Nicholas Proctor was born in 1756 in Brunswick County, Virginia; the names of his parents are not stated.When five or six years of age he left Virginia and moved to Rowan County, North Carolina, where he lived until about nineteen years of age.
      While moving to Kentucky or the Virginia frontier, Nicholas Proctor volunteered in the latter part of 1777 or the spring of 1778 near the Holston River in Virginia, under Captian Cornelius Riddle for the purpose of defending the Virginia frontier, marched under Lieutenant Hargrave throught he wilderness to the farrison at Boonsborough, Kentucky, there joined Captian Benjamin Logan's company, served two or three months then volunteered under Captain John Holder.

      The letter then continues describing Nicholas Proctor's service, gives his marriage date to Catherine ? but does not list children.

      If this is pertinent information to anyone, please send me your address and I'll mail you a copy of the letter.
