Ralston, Andrew

RALSTON, Andrew. My gggggrandfather, Andrew RALSTON, born 22 Feb 1753, was in the American Revolution. He served in the Battles of Long Island, Brandywine, Monmouth and the Southern Campaign by Gen. Nathaniel Greene. He was wounded in the Battle of Brandywine and taken prisoner on Long Island. He mustered out at York, PA in 1785. He married on 19 Dec. 1785 in York Springs, York Co., PA to Sophia WALTERMYER who was born in York Springs, PA on 23 April 1766. Andrew and Sophia RALSTON had eleven children. As you can see, Andrew dedicated his life to winning the war. I can only imagine the hardships and agony Andrew and his fellow soldiers endured.
