This proceeds the list of QA Minute Men:

"Resolved, That the minute company in Dorchester county commanded by captain Joseph Robson, and the minute company in Queen Anne's county commanded by captain James Kent, and the minute company in Kent county commanded by captain William Henry, immediately march to Accomac and Northampton counties in Virginia, to the assistance of the inhabitants there; and that if any of the men belonging to either of the said companies cannot go on this occasion, then the full number to be made up of such volunteers as may offer for this particular service."
From the records of the Council of Safety, see Md. Archives, Vol. XI, it does not appear that Capt. Robson's Company marched.
