8th Battalion Cumberland County Militia, ca. 1780-1783.
Interested in information about the formation of this militia, which was commanded by Captain Joshua Brown of Derry Township (now Mifflin County). Does anyone know when this militia was activated and the general region from which this unit came? Searching for information about HENRY LYAS (LIAS, ELIAS) who served with this unit. Have later information about Henry in Huntingdon County, but am searching for earlier possible Cumberland County connection. Thanks.
