These names come from two sources: a handwritten index card file of Revolutionary War veterans buried in the Buffalo/Western New York area, plus photocopies of pension files of Revolutionary war veterans who settled here. No further information was written on the index cards. We interpreted the handwriting as best as we could. Dates in brackets represent a guess on our part.

The pension files (Mss. A76-8) can be seen by visiting the Research Library in person. No appointments are necessary, though researchers wishing to use this collection must submit a Scholar Pass application:
