This article explains the "hidden secret" in the 1840 census.  Census takers wrote the name of veterans on the back of the census page.  You can search these listings at this find my past database, and if you find a match, you can then see which household the veteran lived in.  This applies to widows who were receiving pensions too, and it gives birthdates!  Unfortunately, I ran each of our surnames that are known to have served in the Revolutionary War through the search engine, and did not receive a single match.
