I am a 6th generation descendent from Otey Prosser who fought in the battle of Brandywine and wintered at Valley Forge. He was from Virginia and I assume he was in one of the Virginia regiments. Tradition has it that he assisted Lafayette from the battlefield after he was wounded. Lafayette met Otey again during his tour of the United States in 1824. Supposedly Lafayette gave Otey a warm French greeting (embrace and kiss on both cheeks). Otey was born in Henrico County, VA in 1761 and died in Washington County, GA in 1839 at the age of 78.
