There is no question that Richard was a veteran of the American Revolution and that Helen did a thorough job tracing his steps as a soldier, but how do we effectively cite all her research?

1) On 7 November 1776, Richard enlisted with the 11th Virginia Regiment as a Private in which he served the next two years.

Are both pages of the same records necessary? Does his name appear on the 1st page?


He served under Captain William Blackwell and was at Valley Forge the winter of 1778[17].

After the Continental divisions[18] in 1778, he served with the 15th Virginia Regiment [19]

under Col. John Cropper's Company. He finished his service with the 7th Virginia Regiment and was discharged on 1 November 1779.

None of the muster rolls reviewed (Rice-8480) showed Richard Harvey served with another Harvey, that could be investigated as his father or brothers, although they may have served in other regiments. In a review of multiple muster rolls, Richard Harvey had no illness or desertion documented. If Richard had not had smallpox, or been inoculated after enlistment, he would have been inoculated at Valley Forge per orders of General Washington. [26] [27]


The following is the paragraph for his Family and property from DAR records which is a duplicate of what's already been said here. What do we do with this?

Elizabeth married Richard Harvey who was born about 1759 and was a Virginia Revolutionary War Soldier.[28]
