Samuel Edgerley - NH Militia
Posted by: Joy Shivar (ID *****5251) Date: August 01, 2008 at 16:31:42

I am an antiques dealer and collector and today purchased a very interesting original document. It is entitled, "A Roll of Captain Nathanial Giddinge, Junior Company in the fourth Regiment of Militia in New Hampshire Commanded by Col. James Hill March 1st 1786". The full transcription of names is below but this post relates to one of the names - Samuel Edgerley who is listed as a private.

I am hoping someone can give me more information about these soldiers and this regiment as I don't even know where in New Hampshire they were formed. I am glad to offer a scan to any interested party for as long as I have the item in my possession. Please e-mail me directly at and thanks for any help.

Full transcription:
Commissioned - April 27th 1787 - Capt. Nathaniel Giddinge, Junior; 1st Lieut. - Winthrop Thing, Junior;2nd Lieut. - James Barleigh (or Burleigh); Ensign - Ebenezer Swazey, Jr.
