Hi, Bill,

If no one ever answered you--you can see a preview of that book in Google Books. Just type in "known military dead revolutionary war" in the search engine, and it's the second hit. They show you some pages from the beginning and end of the book, but the bulk is missing because they'd like you to buy it.

If you scroll down to some of the pages, you can see that very little information is given for each soldier, usually just first and last name, rank, state, killed or died, and the date of death. A few men have one more detail, for example, "Bunker Hill." So what you quoted from page 107 about Daniel Lockhart is probably all there is, and the "Locks" must refer to the next man in the list. The "Maj Mass 1777 may even refer to the man before him. My guess is that all the book says about Daniel is the "Lockhart, Daniel," "2 SC," the quotation marks = killed or wounded, same as the man before, and "7-1-76," his date of death.
