Thank you. I can't think of any other surname of men who connect to my Stephen Sands and who might have been Rangers. I know William Underhill recruited for the Rangers in 1776, and I thought maybe he had been a Ranger during the French and Indian War, but I guess not.
Another researcher has obtained Stephen Sands' British military discharge papers. In those papers, Stephen's enlistment date is given - 3 August 1776. It fascinates me that he joined the Rangers so early in the Revolutionary War - and at the young age of 15-years-old.
Thanks again for all your help!
