My ancestor, William Clarke (1762) was under Captain David Patterson's command in Virginia, specifically they defended the Dinwiddie Courthouse. Later, they viewed the surrender of British Troops at York. I would like to know what regiment this was, and if anyone has records/rolls/musters which might indicate WC's rank. Many, many thanks.
