I have an ancestor to add. John Burroughs (1754-1842) was a private in the Continental Army for seven years throughout the Revolutionary War. He fought at the Battle of Brandywine in the 3rd New Jersey Regiment under Capt./Maj. Joseph Bloomfield. Bloomfield was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine and John Burroughs accompanied him until they were able to rejoin the Regiment at Valley Forge for the Winter of 1777-1778. John Burroughs received an honorable discharge signed by General George Washington.
