1757 document for David Monroe, Jr., of Woodbury, CT
The online catalog of the Skinner Auctioneers auction of 2 November 2013 displays a number of documents of mostly 18th & 19th century Americans. One of these at this auction, lot #133, is a photo of a Connecticut Officer's Commission, c. 1757, for Daniel Munroe, Jr., to be Ensign of the 1st Company, or Training band in the Town of Woodbury, CT, dated June 7th, 1757. No further genealogical information is given about Daniel Munroe, Jr., on this website.
On the date of my writing this message, a photo of this commission is still available online at:
but it may be taken offline soon. In the event it is taken offline, I have downloaded it and will be happy to send a copy freely by email to Munroe family researchers. Someone in the family ought to have it, which is why I’m keeping a copy of it and posting about it. It is too good to be missed by the Munroe family. It would be a very great shame and injustice were it to be missed by Daniel Munroe, Jr.'s, descendants.

Please email me directly rather than respond to me on this site as I may not see that response.
If it were a commission of an 18th century Pease gentleman in my line, I’d certainly hope someone would do the same for me. Call it a simple, but appropriate, genealogy good deed.
