The Treasurer and Comptrollers' Revolutionary War Pay Vouchers consist of vouchers and certificates issued in lieu of cash for military service or for supplies furnished to the army. Typically, a voucher will show the name of the payee, number of the certificate, and the amount due. It may also give the date of issuance and the fiscal district or county in which issued. Certificates issued in payment for supplies or provisions may specify the material furnished. When a voucher was redeemed, it was cancelled by punching a hole through it. The issuance and redemption of certificates are recorded in the Revolutionary Army Account Books.
These records are available on FamilySearch.org (free with an account).
