I did look him up, seems to be loyal British until the Stamp Act. Then
pretty much uses all of his resources to get guns, ammo and supplies
to the Continental Army. House burned, wife imprisoned to the point of
almost death (sounds like she might have been imprisoned on the prison
barrage the British kept nearby). She later dies from her illnesses.
One daughter runs off with a British Navy Officer, 2 sons remain in
the US. He dies broke and is buried in Dutchess County (60 miles
north of the city).
Chad I understand, I think the bucket of points is related to the chad,
not sure of the burial site significance.
