     On this seventeenth day of October A.D. 1832.  Personally appeared in open court, before Geo B. Holt, President, Jas. Smith, Wm Runkle, of the court of Common Pleas of Champaign County, now sitting, Daniel Hullinger a resident of Madriver Township, County of Champaign & State of Ohio, in the Seventy Sixth year of his age, who being first duly sworn according to laws doth on his oath, make the following declaration, in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress passed June 7th A.D. 1832.

     That he entered the service of the United States under the following named officers, and served as herein stated.

     He was born in Lancaster County, State of Pennsylvania on the 12th day of March A.D. 1757.  He had his age recorded (as taken from his father's Family Record) in a book prepared & kept by him for the purpose of a Family Record Book.

     He continued to reside in the County in which he was born, until the year 1777, when a short short time after harvest, (the day he does not remember,) he volunteered for seven months, as a private in a company of volunteers under the command of Captain John Ashton - Gen. Bull was commander of the Regiment or Battalian: - the company was formed at Philadelphia - he was at the battle of Germantown near Philadelphia, in October 1777 - he served out his seven months term, and received a discharge, which he has lost.

     Sometime after (the exact time he does not remember) he was called out with a company of militia under Capt. John Ashton -- and served a term of two months -- during which time, he believes they were stationed a short time on Chesnut Hill near German Town, in Pennsylvania. he received a discharge, but has lost it-

     After which, a waggon and team of horses of his father, Christian Hullinger, was called into the service of the regular Army, in the neighborhood of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Daniel Barry being waggonmaster which team, he the said Daniel Hullinger drove for the term of eight months in succession, and was then discharged.

     His fourth and last term he believes was two months in guarding the prisoners at Lancaster barricks, (he thinks the prisoners were taken at Yorktown in Virginia, on the surrender of Lord Cornwallis)- he was first Lieutenant under a Captain whose name he does not distinctly recollect; but thinks it was Capt. Fetter, or Vedder. he received his discharge, which is also lost.

     Soon after the war of the Revolution he removed to the State of Virginia - from thence to Ross County in this State (Ohio) - from thence to Champaign County Ohio, where he has resided for about sixteen years, & where he now resides.

     He has no documentary evidence, and knows of no person, whose testimony he can produce, who can testify to his services.

     He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any State, or (if any) only on that of the agency of the State of Pennsylvania.                                                       
                                                                                Attest                                                                          Daniel D H Hullinger
