War College: It's the Carlisle Army War Collge or Army War College of Carlisile, Carlisle,Pa - try putting that in the header - I beleive that they have an on line site now - I have've used them in a while - and when I did, I mailed a letter and waited for a paper reply -

He may have had a state pension - or he may have gotten a land grant as payment - there are some that did - and off teh top of my head, I can't remember why I know that.

Ddi you check South Carolina records as well - sometimes things are in both states because of the lines at the time - kinda like Richmond was cut out of Anson so sometimes records are held in two counties -- I know that the Gibsons of Anson can be found in both counties -- Haven't ever looked for McRaes that way - oh, and another thing to remember - MacRae and McRae are the same thing - in Scotland it was mainly spelled MacRae but the "a" was dropped most of the time after the arrival in the colonies -

have you checked the books of:: cook - boddie - moore v.3 - Gregg- JVSDP -RBPPFW:: I have no idea what the letters stand for -- I took this information out of a book called Early Pee Dee Settlers by John M Gregg brother of Bishop Gregg who is the Gregg above --
