7 March 1834 Daniel Lambrecht - Request for Pension:
Court of Common Pleas, Hall of Records Fairfield County, Ohio.

"On this 7th day of March 1834 personally appeared in open court, before the Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, now sitting within and for the County aforesaid, Daniel Lambrecht being a resident of said county aged 84 years who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed on June 7th, 1832.

That he was born in Philadelphia County in the state of Pennsylvania in or about the year 1749 to the best of his recollection. He has no record of his age. When the Revolutionary War commenced, he lived in Bucks County in said state of Pennsylvania. He states he is a German by birth and education and that his name is spelled in German, Daniel Lambrecht, or in English, Daniel Lambright. He cannot state, from extreme old age and failure of memory, the year he entered the service first but states that the British Army were living in New York, and that it was during the Revolutionary War. He was first drafted in Bucks County, aforesaid, for two months in the Militia, and was placed in a company commanded by Captain David Millinger. The name of the Lieutenant he cannot recollect but thinks it was Andrew Keesling. He was marched to Trenton in New Jersey, and was at the battle at that place. He went from Trenton to Featherbed Hill, where he was discharged, having served out his two months. He was in a regiment commanded by Colonel Pearce. He went home to Bucks County and was again drafted for two months and was placed under the same Captain and was marched to Chester below Philadelphia and stayed there 3 or 4 weeks and crossed the river and helped build Billingsfort. Washington was there several times to see the works. He was under the command of Colonel Pearce. He was discharged at Billingsfort and went back to Bucks County; having served out his two months. He was again drafted in a short time and was placed under the same officers and was marched to Newtown and from that place to Philadelphia to join the army under the command of General Washington. There he was on duty keeping guard, etc. until the two months had expired. When he went home to Bucks County, he was again drafted for two months and was put under the same Captain and was marched to Brandywine and was in the battle at that place and was in a regiment commanded by Colonel Pearce in a detachment commanded by General Winecroft. From Brandywine he went to Featherbed Hill and was discharged having served his two months, and went back to Bucks County. He further states that he did not at each time of war or the two months were out, get leave to go home, but in all served 10 months, but from old age and loss of memory, he cannot state the exact time he was out at each draft, over his two months, but is certain of the fact that he served ten months. 

He removed from Pennsylvania to Frederickstown in Maryland, from that to Virginia near Sheppardstown, and from there to this county about twenty-two years ago. He states that his discharges, if he ever had any, were all lost, and he cannot now say that he had any in writing. His house was destroyed by fire some years ago and his papers were all burnt.

He states that he is known to Michael Amspacher and the Rev. Mr. Waggonhals who will testify as to his character for truth and veracity. He cannot for loss of memory give a more detailed account of his services and the officers under which he served than he done. 

He hereby relinquishes every claim which comes to a pension or annuity, except the present and he declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency in any state. [signed] Daniel Lambrecht.
