Birth: Jun. 11, 1760, USA
Death: Dec. 26, 1850, USA

George Fishley, entered the Continental Army in 1777, under Gen. Poor and Col. Dearborn. He served three years and was among the men who marched near Valley Forge wearing no shoes or stockings. He was at Monmouth, the New Jersey confrontation led by George Washington. After the Revolution, he served aboard a privateer, was captured and imprisoned in Halifax. He later commanded a coaster shipping between Portsmouth and Boston. He was one of the few surviving veterans to attend the opening of the Bunker Hill Monument in Boston in 1843. He commanded a miniature ship that was transported from Portsmouth inland to Concord, NH. He was among the three longest-surviving Revolutionary War veterans in Portsmouth, NH. He was among hundreds of elderly New England pensioners who applied to an early veteran's relief program sponsored by the federal government in 1840.
