Hyde County's
Revolutionary War Military Papers
(Portions found in the Alton Warren Payne Collection)

SOURCE: North Carolinian (Dec. 1960 issue; pgs. 753-758) Item entitled: Revolutionary War: Final Settlements
The introduction to this article states that in the NC Archives there can be found seven file boxes of loose papers labeled "Comptroller's Papers - Final Settlements" (Boxes 14-20). Many of the folders contain information on more than one individual. The bulk of the papers are dated in the early 1790's, with a few dated 1770's & 1780's. The soldiers and claimants are listed below (Hyde and surrounding counties only here). Widely varying amounts of data are given for each individual, and it is recommended that full copies of the original document be obtained in each and every instance. Places of residence were frequently changed, and many of the men had moved to other counties and other states by the time the final settlement was made. Also, many were deceased, the final settlement being made with their heirs.
