  1. Hi,
    Interested in Virginia militia roster records from the 1750 to 1760 time period.
    In particular, would like to locate rosters of those serving at the time of the Fort Necessity and Braddock Expeditions (Battle at Monongahela). Does anyone have a complete, or nearly complete, compilation of these rosters from this time period, or are records scattered on a county-by-county basis? My understanding is that many deaths and injuries resulted in these engagements.
