My g+grandfather, Daniel Smith, born in eastern Virginia, 1765, died in Henry County, VA, in 1816. According to a family document, served in a Virginia Militia unit formed in Henry County, and participated in the 1780 Battle of Camden. I'd appreciate information or advice on finding muster rolls or listing of the men serving in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd Virginia Miliita that served under Brig Gen Edward Stevens in that battle. I have located a Revolutionary War Public Service Claim for Daniel Smith of Henry County, VA, his marriage to Polley Kennon 20 May, 1799, and his listing in the 1782 Henry County, VA Personal Propery Tax List. Thank you in advance, Jerry Smith
