Hello again. (from Polly Rapp at firstname.lastname@example.org, an Irey ancestor) I was not able to find much detail on John Irey's military service for you, but we do have a copy of an application for the Daughters of the American Revolution that provides some references to documents that may provide the kind of details you're looking for. First, a quote from the application in response to the Ancestor's Services section:
"John Irey was a soldier in the Rev. War, who under General Lafayette was at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. He is buried in the Old Cemetery at Caledonia, Ohio. Official Roster--Soldiers of the American Revolution buried in Ohio, 1929--page 200."
The application notes that Irey was a private in the Revolutionary War.
