His family enlisted from Vernon County, New Jersey. No family in New Jersey was more patriotic in the glorious struggle from 1776-1785 which our ancestors waged for the liberty of this country. A father and his four sons went through its hardships and dangers unscathed. The latter fact was fully as remarkable as their brave enlistment, for they were in the bloodiest battles of Brandywine, Monmouth and many others.
