Maine Hubbards in French & Indian Wars and American Revolution

I am directly descended from Capn.Phillip Hubbard and Elizabeth Roberts of Berwick, Me.

Capn. Phillip ubbard served as a Lieutenant in Capn.William Garrish's company during the Lebanon & Saco River Expedition in 1756.  In 1775 he received a commission of Capn. and led a company of Col. Scammons' 30th. Regt. of Foot in the Continental Army.  He served in Cambridge and his company was in reserve at the Battle of Bunker Hill.  He later served in the Colonial Coast Guards as 2nd. in command of Fort McClary in Kittery.

Phillip's brother Joseph Hubbard took part in the succesfful seige of Fortress Louisburg in Canada serving as a Lieutenant in the Blue Troop of Horse  in Sir. William Pepperals Colonial Militia.  Louisburg was the first major battle in 1757 in which the British Fleet and the New England Colonial Militias combined their efforts to retaliate against the French for their leading Indian raids against the colonists.  Joseph died later of wounds he received there.

Both brothers were long serving members of the colonial militia and took part in many actions during the  7 Year war or French & Indian Wars.  I have documented only those above but have many hints of their actions.  One hit has it that Phillip served with Col. Robert Rogers in his Rangers' activity during those times.

I would be greatful for any additional information that my lead to further documenting their activities at this time
