Hi Fred-

In "A Return of the Officers and Men of Capt. John Anderson's Co. of the Middlesex Militia", dated April 20, 1793, Daniel Miller shows up as a Private. He is also listed as a 22 y.o. in the 1793 "Enrollment of All Able Bodied White Male Citizens between the Ages of Eighteen and Forty Five Years Within the Township of South Amboy." (Ref: Dutcher's "Compiled Records of the Middlesex County, New Jersey Militia, 1791-1795")

This Daniel is obviously too young to have served in the Rev. War, but his granddaughter may not have had the facts straight; after all, he did "serve." If he truly was a Rev. War vet, he would had to have been at least in his late 40's when his wife delivered their 1st child in 1794: certainly possible, but it would be more likely if he were 23 or so, as the Daniel referenced above would have been. Also, the surname Service/Serivss is pretty common in areas that were then included in So. Amboy Twsp.

I hope this helps.
