My 4x great grandfather, Reuben Martin, served as a private in the Sussex County, New Jersey militia. He served four six-month enlistments during the fighting seasons of 1777, 1778, 1779, and 1780. He participated in the Battles of Brandywine and Germantown, and was wounded in the right leg at Germantown. His pension documents detailing this service can be found on the military records website

Munn, Calvin

While searching online for the first name of my MUNN ancestor, I found Calvin MUNN at: Brattleboro History Scrapbook – “Independence Day 1845”. As a Revolutionary War veteran, CALVIN MUNN attended an Independence Day celebration in 1845 at Brattleboro, VT. He was introduced as: “CALVIN MUNN, of Dummerston, [Windham Co., VT] last not least, is finishing up his 85th year. He was one of Lafayette’s infantry. He was at Brandywine, at Monmouth, at Trenton, and at several other fields, but I especially name him last because he was at the closing scene at York Town.”

Morrison, Ephraim

I am Diana Lynn Morrison Jones. I would like to submit the name of my 4th great grandfather, Ephraim Morrison, to the list of soldiers who fought at The Battle of Brandywine. I am requesting his name be added to the list because according to the written account of his son, Thomas Morrison, who states that his father, Ephraim not only fought in the battle, he was also wounded. The account is listed in “A History of Thomas Morrison” a handwritten autobiography of Thomas Morrison where Thomas states that “my father, Ephriam, the 9th born child of Samuel Morrison and Mercy Mayse, was born in Bucks County Pa. June 5th, 1759 and was the twin of the 10th born child, Jonah. Ephriam, my father, was five feet nine inches in height, weighed 175 pounds, fair complexion, brown hair, blue-grey eyes and Roman nose. He served in the Revolutionary Army and was wounded in the battle of Brandywine Sept 11th A.D. 1777. Was married to my mother, Mrs. Nancy Hettick (whose maiden name was Foster) July A.D. 1787.”

“Ephraim Morrison is listed as a Private in the War of Independence, wounded at the Battle of Brandywine. Ephraim Morrison appears on the list as a private in Capt. Samuels Evans’ Company, London Brittain Company, Chester County, Pennsylvania, Associates & Militia. (Penn. Archives shows him wounded at the Battle of Brandywine, Pennsylvania. Vol 5, page 525; Fifth Series Archives. Verified by D.A.R. National Number #262581). NOTE: The above paragraph is listed in the October 1976 research of Mary Helen Morrison Haag in the Montgomery County Library, Dayton, Ohio. Mary Helen Morrison Haag (now deceased) was the 3rd great granddaughter of Ephraim Morrison.

We also know from “A History of Thomas Morrison” that his father, Samuel Morrison and four sons, James, William, John and Ephraim all served and fought in our American Revolutionary War.
