  • Notes 
    • I do have a note (lacking source citations) that his son, John, was an officer in the Revolution. I have it that he was a Lt. in the North Fairfield and North Stratford Companies, in Oct. 1773; and later was a Capt. of the 12th Co, 4th Regiment, in May 1775. If this can be proved, then you will know that the DAR references that you cited have not confused John, Sr., with John, Jr.
