Source: Mead, S. P. Ye Historie of Ye Town of Greenwich, County of Fairfield, State of Connecticut. New York, New York: Knickerbocker (1911) Says Mead, Although the Colony of Connecticut furnished more than her actual quota of men for active service in the various colonial wars: King William's War, 1689-1697; Queen Anne's War, 1702-1713; and King George's War, 1744-1748; still the author has been unable to find any record of any company, detachment or sqauad of men having enlisted from the Town of Greenwich, except such as has been obtained from Hoadley's Colonial Records of Connecticut, and from the Collections of the Connecticut Historical Society. . .
