Colonel Samuel Elmore's Regiment, 1776


[Colonel Samuel Elmore's Regiment was raised under authority of the Continental Congress, to serve for one year from April, 1776, and credited to Connecticut. The Colonel, Samuel Elmore, had served as Major of Hinman's Regt. in the Northern Dept. in 1775, and again as Lieut.-Col. of Wooster's provisional Regt. in the winter of '75-'76. Elmore and most of his company officers recruited their men in Connecticut and to some extent from the regiments that served in the North. Some of the officers belonged in New York and a few in Massachusetts, and men were recruited from both of those states. The regiment took the field in July, '76, under Schuyler, and on August 25th marched from Albany "into Tryon County." During the remainder of its term, it was posted at Ft. Stanwix and vincity. It Conn., Mass., and N. Y. Lines. The following are the muster rolls of the companies as they stood on Jan. 13-15, 1777, "in Colonel Samuel Elmore's Battalion of Forces, raised in the state of Connecticut and now in the service of the United States of America." -- Rev. Rolls, Pension Bureau.]

OFFICERS PRISONERS

Capt. Peter Perritt, of Milford, in Col. Chas. Webb's Regt. '76, who had been detached "on command" to serve with the garrison at Fort Washington, New York Island, was taken prisoner at its surrender, Nov. 16, '76. Exchanged Sept. 18, '78. He had previously been appointed a Captain in the new army for '77, and upon his exchange presented himself for service, but no vacancy then existing he was regarded as a supernumerary and received pay and bounty as such. On June 21, '79, he was appointed Captain in a State Regt., to serve one year. He commanded a company of "Rangers" in the vicinity of Boston after the Lexington alarm. See p. 28.

Lieut. Joseph Hale (or Hall) is reported among the Connecticut officers taken prisoners at Ft. Washington, Nov. 16, '76, and exchanged during the war. Captain Nathan Hale had a brother Joseph Hale who was a Lieut. in Col. Andrew Ward's Regt. He may have been with the garrison in the fort and captured.
