    Notes:

    According to DAR lineage books, in the Revolution he was a private in the Connecticut line under Colonels Gay, Terry, Chapman, and Pease.

    "He enlisted in 1776 in Capt. Simon Walcott's company; served in 1778 under Capt. Amasa Loomis and Capt. Richard Pitkin. 1779 under Capt. Bush. A pension was allowed in 1832 for 14 months actual service as a private in the Connecticut line." [Button Families of America]

    Notwithstanding the inconsistency between the DAR and Button Families accounts of his service, he did in fact receive a pension in 1832, although the document is unspecific beyond saying that he served as a private.
