Does anyone know where and when he was captured and escaped?I have that he enlisted Apr. 29, 1775 in Col. Read's Regt.(which initially was part of the Mass. militia but then became part of the Continental Army. He must have served in this capacity until captured/escaped, then re-enlisted Mar. 1777 in Col. Francis' Regiment (also part of Cont. Army)
Best I can figure he was captured sometime between Aug. 28, 1776 (Aug. 27 was Battle of Long Island) and Dec. 8, 1776 (I have him as served under another Mass. milita Dec. 8, 1776 on "an alarm" Providence, RI.
Events where his regiment was during these dates: Evacuation of NYC to Harlem Heights Battle of Pell's Point Battle of White Plains Evacuation to New Jersey via Peekskill, NY Battle of Trenton
