    Benjamin Franklin Sexton Revolutionary War Vet Summary

    Benjamin Franklin Sexton, my 5th great grandfather, appears to have fought in the Revolutionary War in the Montgomery County Virginia militia.  The only documentation that I have been able to come up with at this point is his headstone in the Cox Mill Cemetery in Wolfe County, Kentucky.

    There are no records of him applying for a pension, although there was a Benjamin Sexton who attested on behalf of another pension petitioner (Cary Trailor).  In addition, I could find no evidence of anyone ever submitting an application through either the Daughters of the American Revolution or the Sons of the American Revolution under Benjamin’s lineage.
