I have a ancestor who served in the British army during the Revolutionary
War.-- and he decided to quit the effort. Is there any way to find records
of his passport granted by the Americans? Where is Rawlings Mill?

The following is an exact copy of Passport given him:

"Headquarters, Rawlings Mills, September 29, 1777. Permit James Clarkson
a deserter from the British army to pass from hence to Reading to find
employment. He is by trade a weaver." James Pickering, Agent

Thanks, Mary Clarkson Buchholz, new member of the list
