"Soldiery of West Virginia", WV Heritage Encyclopedia, Suppl Vol. 9, Jim Comstock, Ed., 1974, p. 80: Reprinting of 1834 census of pensioners. Statement of Monroe County, West Virginia. Abraham Dehart, private, $96 annual allowance, $1,508.23 received to date, served in Pennsylvania line, placed on pension 29 Jan 1819, pension commenced 19 June 1818, age 79.

This would place his birth around 1755. The pensioner statement is unclear about the entry for age; it also appears for those entries for whom death dates before 1834 were entered. Were these ages at death?.
