Thank you Glenn. Here are what notes I have from his grandson, John Turner written in 1897. "My grandfather Soden was a native of New Jersey. He ran away and enlisted in the Continental Army when a boy and was in from first to last. Was under Arnold at Saratoga and was a guard at the hanging of Major Andre. He was one winter quartered at Providence, RI where he married. Was discharged at Cold Springs on the Hudson, begged his way back to his wife at Providence, tho' he had his pocket full of Continental money.
I have some of it now and the same old pocket book. His wife's name was Lydia Williams. I believe of the Roger Williams race, of her first man -Gorman- I know but little. He left a son who was no credit to "King of Country".
These Continental bills wre never worth anything, the government never redeemed them, one of these bills I have, it is $30.00 and the other is 50 cents.
I don't know whose son he talking about-Gorman or Soden. I believe Gorman.
My notes from family don't mention a son but---girls, Lydia and Lizzie. Lizzie isn't mentioned again
I can't find Lydia Williams connect to Roger Williams.
