List of 385 names of mostly Albany city men printed in New York in the Revolution as Colony and State (Albany, 1901), volume I, pp. 221-22. The following is taken from an introductory explanation beginning on page 12: "In the same year [1781], a bounty of "Land Rights" - (a "Right" being 500 acres) was offered to officers and men for two regiments then to be raised, for the defense of the State. . . ." Bounty rights later were extended to include the militia.
        In his preface to the printed volume, State Comptroller James A. Roberts pointed out that "It is true that lists of names of New York's Revolutionary soldiers have been heretofore published, but these were derived almost entirely from other than original sources, the state treasurer's books of account being the chief source, and their accuracy, for this reason, has been a matter of grave doubt, and therefore the results could not be accepted in historical works. All the names published in this volume are derived from that highest of sources, the original muster and pay-rolls, and thus the services of the individual and the aggregate are conclusively shown. Several thousands of the names, particularly of those belonging to the regiments of the " Line," were obtained from rolls on file in the War Department at Washington."
        We cannot say enough about the massive transcription/transformation initiative that has been placed online under the functional rubric of "The Three Rivers Website." For more than a decade, the wonderful folks behind it have brought "tons" of oftentimes obscured historical materials into the light. All students of the American Revolution, the Mohawk Valley, and many other things historical would do well to acquaint themselves with this resource. Thank you Three Rivers!

The linked list of land bounty right eligible members of the militia regiment from the city of Albany is printed above and is described further in a chapter on soldiers in The Other Revolutionaries.
