Re: Amos Gillett, Amenia, NY
Records agree with what you state here about Asa Gillet except for his enlistment date.In his pension application (S34898, p. 3), this Asa Gillet claims to have enlisted on 01 Jan 1780 in Capt. Hogeland's 2nd Reg. Light Dragoons.He would have been 13 years old in 1777, which was not unheard of, but he claims to have been 16.
For all his moving around, he's very lucky that his pension caught up with him.
Please note that I said "this Asa Gillet."There are three men by this name and I will address this in my next posting.
