I am seeking information on Samuel Kearsley of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Samuel Kearsley appears to have been the first owner of a Rev. War era army training manual, which was published in Philadelphia, PA in 1776. Samuel Kearsley applied for a Rev War pension and I have down loaded his application.

By 1817, Samuel Kearsley's Rev. War pension application lists his residence as being the Borough of Harrisburg, PA. No other man by the name of Samuel Kearsley applied for a Rev War pension from the United States government. The U.S. Census Returns list Samuel Kearsley as being a resident of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. No other man by the name of Samuel Kearsley appears anywhere else in the nation for the 1790 and 1820 U.S. Census Returns. So I assume that the Samuel Kearsley mentioned in your posting is the same Samuel Kearsley, who owned this Pennsylvania army manual and who applied for a government pension based on his service in the Rev War.

Any additional information about Samuel Kearsley which you might have on Samuel Kearsley would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help.
