That he fought at the battle of Monmouth in June, 1778. The three years preceding the summer of 1780, he had been Orderly Sergeant in the Artillery Company under Capt. Ebenezer Stevens, Col. Lamb's Regiment of troops raised by the States of Conn. and NY, attached to, and forming part of the regular Army of the USA. He was discharged in the summer of 1780. Subsequent to our marriage my husband was constantly engaged in various war services: in cruising in the government arms boats in Long Island Sound, and the East River, reconnoitering within the enemies lines, and in communicating with our friends within the enemies posts. He was in an engagement at a place called Horse Neck. He was in a battle in the eastern part of the Town of Stamford. That he was engaged with a party of the enemy, who in the summer 1782, having landed and secreted themselves, surrounded on a Sunday afternoon the Meeting House in which the Rev. Moses Mather was preaching, and took Minister and Congregation prisoners. She also declares that Betsey Skelding mentioned in the annexed marriage certificate is one and the same person with Betsey Lockwood the deponent. And that she has resided at Albany ever since the death of her husband. Generally called Betsey, though now written Elizabeth.
