Notes: Peden suggests that more than one patriot shared this same name. Given the age of the patriot listed above at the time of the outset of the Rev. War, and the absence of military service shown in the DAR records for this patriot, it is assumed that the military service described in Peden does not apply to this patriot. (2)
