Carter, Joseph — Private, 11th VA Regt. Joseph was my g-g-g-g-grandfather, born 04 Sept. 1736, Fauquier Co., VA; died Jan 1809, Russell Co., VA. I have no documentation or references specifically stating that Joseph was at Brandywine, but DAR application record copies (#s 771445 and 704716 ) indicate that he served in Lt. Col. John Cropper’s unit. During the relevant period, I believe Lt. Col. Cropper was in command of the 11th VA. So, at a minimum, Joseph Carter’s unit was present. However, I have not been able to confirm Joseph’s dates of service in the 11th VA. I am now in the process of attempting to establish Joseph’s presence at Valley Forge.
