Revolutionary War Service?

My family like many others had the tradition that we came to the States to serve with Lafayette in the Rev. War. I recently came across information while researching another
family, the Duttero's that they had been part of a group called the "Associator's"
organized by Ben Franklin in the 1750's to protect the Philadelphia area as the majority of residents were pacifists and would not bear arms. After being disbanded, former members group came together again during the rebellion. Could it be that our ancestors were part of this group, which consisted largely of immigrants from northwest Germany, and over the years this
service was confused with service under
Lafayette? ( My family descends from Henry and Elizabeth Lowry Delader. Who were the parents of Elizabeth, Emaline, Solomon Lowry?)
