The certificates are printed forms filled in with the name of the individual, his rank, whether he served in a state or a continental line unit, and the length of such service. The original certificates are dated, signed, and filed in individual folders along with any supplemental papers presented with the claim other than those actually proving military service. The certificates were numbered 1-9926 and cover the period July 14, 1782 - August 5, 1876.
