"I have Isaac Fuller's Rev. War era hat & its case, purportedly also worn by his son in War of 1812... It actually looks like a British high hat to me! One day I'll have it authenticated :)"

He was born in Parkman, Piscataquis County, in 1876. He was the son of David Brainard Ellis and Eliza Wharff Lombard. He attended Wesleyan University (Middletown, Connecticut) and graduated in 1900 with B.A.…See More

My two 4 x great grandfathers from Plympton, Massachusetts were members of Theophilus Cotton’s Minute Regiment.

The history books have told us that all the action was in Boston, where the British regulars had returned after their…See More
