Isaac M. AMES, John STRONG, John DECKER, Charles TYLER. These four men handed over to our supervisor at Owego, bounty paid by the Town of Danby.
* Credited to the Town of Caroline. Bounty paid by the Town of Caroline.

The above information is taken from the "Military Record" section of Chapter LXVIII, Danby, 472-474 in the book, History of Tioga, Chemung, Tompkins, and Schuyler Counties, New York. Philadelphia: Everts and Ensign, 1879.

As in most old records, there are a number of typos and misspellings. I have corrected what I believed to be two misspelled names (Deputon to Deputron) and Pratt to Piatt); if I have turned the names from right to wrong, I apologize. I questioned a few others, but not being familiar with those names, I leave any corrections to be made by the descendants/genealogists researching the specific surname, i.e., Atwell vs. Atwill.
