RI COLONIAL MILITIA ROLLS
Posted by: Robin Gilebarto (ID *****3045) Date: June 29, 2002 at 06:53:57

Am trying to find out how to find an ancestor's records for militia or regular army duty. His name was Eli Colegrove, of Warwick, RI and he reportedly died during the battle to take Port Royal in 1710. Where are Colonial Records for Queen Annes's War kept, ie, rolls of men etc. I presume he was colonial militia, as he was the main support of his father at the time he went to NS. The only mention I find of him is an application for an abatement by his father, stating his oldest son was his chief help and support (not named) lately dead, in her Majesty's service ... in the expedition against Port Royal.." - application dated 27 Feb 1711/12. Looking for some direction, HELP!, Thanks Robin
