"Dr. Lemuel Gustine married Susanna Smith, of Rye, New York, a daughter of Dr. William Hooker Smith, and accompanied his father-in-law to the Wyoming Valley in Pennsylvania and served with him as assistant surgeon of the Continental army. He is referred to in the Wyoming correspondence as active in the Patriot cause and also active in the cause of the Connecticut settlers at Wyoming in opposition to the 'Pennanites' as the representatives of the proprietary government of Pennsylvania were called by the Connecticut settlers. Dr. Gustine was present at the surrender of Forty Fort, and signed the capitulations, and with his infant daughter, Sarah, escaped the massacre of July 3, 1778, by flight to Carlisle."

— John W. Jordan, editor, Colonial and Revolutionary Families of Pennsylvania: Genealogical and Personal Memoirs, New York: Lewis Publishing Company, 1911, p. 1650.
