American patriot and Revolutionary War officer Col. David Condit (a.k.a. Conduit) died during the third year of the war. He was 43 at the time of his death, and the triumph of the cause he fought for was still several years away.
The son of Samuel and Mary (nee Dodd) Conduit/Condit, he married the former Joanna Williams. The couple had several children, including sons Japhia and Enoch, who also fought for American Independence during the Revolutionary War. Col. Condit's name is inscribed on the granite memorial erected by the Condit Family Association to honor their soldier-ancestors who lie buried in this churchyard, but his individual grave is elsewhere in the burial ground.
Extract from "The Ancestry of the Condit Family in America", (author and date unknown):
"He entered his countrys (sic) service in the War of the Revolution as a member of the Second Regiment, State Militia; promoted to Major, 1776, and for gallentry (sic) was made Lieutenant-Colonel, 1777, April 15; died April 24, 1777, aged 43. Thus early were his children left fatherless, and the country bereft of the services of a true patriot, soldier and citizen."
