On February 27 1776 Robert Groves, then 12 years old, enlisted for 1 year as a drummer boy in Capt. David Hall's Regt. and participated in the American Revolution (Delaware Archives, Military, Vol. I. A muster roll for January 16 to April 11 shows Robert was in the barracks at Lewistown, Delaware (now called Lewes). This information from a copy
made in the R&P Office War Dept., in Sept. 1897 of an original record borrowed from the State of Delaware, R & P 488296; and also R & P 436786. Also, records in my file indicate that Robert was one of "12 drummers and fifers present" with Gen. George Washington at Kings Bridge, Westchester Co., New York on October 5, 1776.
