My 4x great grandfather, William Smith was a Capt. in 1780-1781, 6th Battalion, 5th Company, Lower Darby, PA. He fought at Brandywine. He was also aboard the privateer the “Holkar” and served at Billingsport Fort, N. Jersey in 1782.
Please add Mathias Shaner, Sargent in the 13th Virgina and a member of Captain James Sullivan’s Company commanded by Col. William Russel.
John Sexton of Virginia when filing for his dead brother Archibald Sexton who died at Brandywine states that he was part of general Anthony Wayne’s troops at Stony Point. John was at Valley Forge, Germantown, Brandywine, and Princeton. He later fought at the battle of Guilford Court house with North Carolina militia.
