My Pennsylvania Revolutionary War Patriot, Moses Yocom(Yocum, Yokim, Yoakim) never applied for a pension. Where would I find out more information about his Revolutionary War service? Seeking book cites.

I have two sources…all the information I have is on the attached sheets. One is from Ancestry.com…the 2nd from the Pennsylvania Archives.

   Exhausted Pennsylvania Archives series and Fold 3.

    Thank you for posting your question on the History Hub!

    While our staff is very knowledgeable about the records in our custody, we are not experts about everything with regard to said records. We do not have any suggestions of books regarding military service during the Revolutionary War.

    The National Archives has Compiled Military Service Records for Revolutionary War soldiers. These were created in the late 1890s/early 1900s by the Adjutant General's Office from whatever pay rolls, muster rolls, record books, and other material that the clerks were able to examine at that time. They are primarily administrative in nature and seldom, if ever, contain any personal papers about the soldier. The CMSRs are available on microfilm as publication M881 and in digital form on the National Archives Catalog ( https://catalog.archives.gov/id/570910 ).

    Additional records relating to his military service may be located in state archives or historical societies.

    Sincerely,
    Archives 1 Reference Branch
