Emery, George

George Emery or Emrey was my gggggrandfather and according to family history was at the Battle of Brandywine, stationed, at his own request, as a private at Chad’s Ford on Brandywine. He joined the 2nd Virginia regiment of Continentals as Quartermaster in March or April of 1777. Was in the battle of Germantown. Wintered at Valley Forge and was in the Carolinas and Georgia. Still needs some research.
