He belonged to a company of organized militia, called 'minute-men', who were obliged to be in readiness to march at a moment's notice, and in this capacity he did much service. He was a member of the guard over Major Andre, during a portion of the time of his confinement, trial and execution. He was appointed Ensign 4May1780; Lieut 24Jun1786; and Captain 8Mar1791.
