Mr. Bocker, from the Committee on Military Pensions, made the following
REPORT: The Committee on Military Pensions, to whom was referred the petition
of t;avid Kennard, a soldier in the Revolution, made the following report:
That the case of the petitioner was set forth in the report of this commitmittee, heretofore made, and will now be briefly recapitulated. He entered the regiment commanded by Col. George Gibson, in the war of the Revolution, and served therein the full term of his enlistment; that he then seryed : tour of militia duty, and at the expiration thereof, or soon after, he again enlisteil in the infantry, on continental establishment, and continued therein until the close of the war. Many of the facts set forth by the petitioner are corroborated by the remaining records of the Revolution, but there is no evidence to prove that his last enlistment was for and during the war. It is in proof that the petitioner was in hard and perilous service for a period of five or six years, and that he was in service when peace was restored. Your committee presume, from the facts, that the enlistment was for the war, and that the party is equitably entitled to the benefits of the act of May, 1828, and to compass this end, report a bill.
