Ancestral Paths to the American Revolutionary War (Part 2)
In the previous post, the ancestors of Floy Bates Aderman leading back to the American Revolutionary War were delineated. Here is the path from my maternal great-grandfather, Furman Woodington:
Furman Clarke Woodington (Oct. 9, 1860 – Feb 28, 1946) was the
son of Henrietta Munson Woodington (1843 – Sept 8, 1882), who was the
daughter of Amos Munson (1808 – August 5, 1885), who was the
son of Freeman Munson (1786 – Nov 1878), who was the
son of Samuel Munson (Oct 7, 1739 – April 2, 1827) who served in Captain Abraham Foot’s Company, Ward’s Regiment from Connecticut, led by Col. Andrew Ward:
This regiment was raised in Connecticut, on requisition of the Continental Congress, to serve for one year from May 14, 1776, and stood on the same footing as the other Continental regiments of 1776. It joined Washington’s army at New York in August, and was stationed at first near Ft. Lee. Marching with the troops to White Plains, and subsequently into New Jersey, it took part in the Battles of Trenton, Dec. 25, ’76, and Princeton, Jan. 3, ’77, and encamped with Washington at Morristown, N. J., until expiration of term. May, 1777.
Sometime after the war ended, Samuel moved to Trumball County, Ohio where he lived the rest of his life. He died April 2, 1827 at the age of 87.
