And your petitioner being in duty bound will very pray.

Pension: Geo Town Jan 14, 1833 Harriet Williams
Cumberland Jany 18, 1833

Pension: Dear Sir

Pension: The object of the letter you put into my hands, is to know if I had any knowledge of Capt. Elisha Williams during the revolutionary war & if he was in the army at what time did he enter the service, in what capacity did he serve, was he in the Continental army, or in the Militia to what Regt did he belong, where did he march from, where did his corps serve, how long did he remain in the Army, or when did he leave it, in what battle was he engaged & to whom would I advise application to be made for future information.
I answer that I had a pitiful knowledge of Elisha Williams at the commencement of the Revolutionary War we were raised on adjoining plantations, and during a Sipion of a Convention called to Annapolis by a recommendation of the Continental Congress in the Winter or early in the Spring of 1776 by which Maryland was called on to raise 4 Regts. to serve in the Continental army untill the 10th day of December following to be called the Flying Camp. We went together to Annapolis to apply to the Convention for Commpioners in one of the Regt to be raised he was appointed Lieutenant & I was appointed Ensign both in Col. Charles G. Griffiths Regt & intered immediately on the recruiting service in Montgomery then the eastern end of Fredrick County. The four regts were raised & under marching orders before the 1st day of July marched by companies to Philadelphia when the were organized & formed into one Brigade under Brig. Gen Beall & then moved on to reinforce the main Army under George Washington but before this was accomplished the army was defeated & routed on Long Island & Maryland Brigade joined him a few days after the defeat in the City of New York W. Williams was on the Island & on the field of Battle at Karlarn the day the Brittish army & took possesion of the city he was afterwards(during this same campaign) in the Battle at whiteplains & in the retreat through Jersey to Philadelphia where the flying camp was discharged in conformity with the terms of their enlistments on the 10th of Dec still clad in their Summer(bathing, linen hunting shirts)

Pension: On the same 10th day of Dec 1776, under a new organization of the army all the officers there in the service were invited to continue & were generally promoted, he was appointed a Capt & I was appointed Liet.in his Company in the 14th maryland Regt Comm. by Col. Ginby on Continental Establishment during the Winter we were engaged in the recruiting service & early in the Spring joined Genl Sullivans division at Prime Town in new Jersey. Joined the main army at the opening of the Campaign when the Army left their Winter quarters in Brunswick & he was engaged in all the active duties of he army during the whole Campaign of 1777 he was in the battle of Brandy wine & German Town & was injured by a paping ball that bruised but did not penetrate his thigh at German Town I do not recollect the precise time of his leaving the army but I perfectly remember his being in command of the Company at the end of the Campaign or untill the weather was very cold. The whole army was in the field untill about Christmas. The Mrland line I think reached Wilminton on Christmas day where they were quartered during the Winter.

Pension: Mountjoy Bayly of Washington & Col Wm Jamon of Montgomery County both served in th same Regt with Capt Williams in 1776 and 1777 & will of course recollect his Service & I believe Judge Duvall of the Supreme Court was Clerk or Secretary to the Convention that sat at Annapolis in the Spring of the year 1776 & will perhaps be able to give the dates of the Campaigns or appointments made at that time.
Very respectfully I am &
Yr ob servant
David Lynn
