Ludington, Henry Deserter 2nd Connecticut Regiment Commanded by Col. Newton, Captain Daniel Maltbie's Company. Company at service during time of alarm for relief of Ft. William Henry and parts adjacent. August 1757
(There is substance to the Deserter theory. Henry got separated from his unit but later was found not be a deserter as no entry is made in his service record. In fact he was praised for his actions and assigned higher responsibilities and was quickly promoted through the ranks to full Colonel.)
