Brattleboro, Vt.: D. Leonard, printer, 1882, p. 91:

In September of the same year[1776], Col. Nahum Baldwin's regiment was raised, and, together with that of Col. Thomas Tash, was sent to re-enforce the Continental army in New York.

The sixth company of Col. Baldwin's regiment was commanded by Capt. John Houghton. It contained the following Chesterfield men: John Bishop, James Robinson [Robertson], Josiah Hastings, Jonathan Farr, Ezekiel Powers, Jonathan Cressey, Jonathan Farwell, Isaac Farr, Nathan Thomas, Jonathan Farr, 3d. Capt. Houghton's company was mustered, apparently, at Swanzey, Sept. 22. The men were paid 6 pounds in advance, and were allowed one pound, 13 shillings and 4 pence for 200 miles of travel. It is not known in what actions they were engaged, or at what time they were discharged.

In the December following, another regiment was raised for the same purpose as the two last mentioned, and placed under comr mand of Col. David Gilman. The first company was commanded by Capt. Francis Town. There were, at least, two Chesterfield men in this company, viz.: Zenas Fairbanks and Aaron Farr. Perhaps the name of Levi Fairbanks should be added.
