(A-455) HODGE/SMITH - The record of William HODGE and Lucy
SMITH’s marriage in the Second Congregational Church, New Haven, Conn.
has been abstracted into both the Hale and Barbour indices. To my knowledge no
contemporary record exists to show that William fought in the Revolution. But
his eldest son Philo applied for a pension in 1818 and swore in court that his
father was killed by Loyalist cavalry troops while fighting in the militia at
Byram Bridge (N.Y.). I was able to identify the two days in 1779 when the
Loyalist cavalry was at Byram Bridge. For more information on William’s
Revolutionary War record and William & Lucy’s marriage see B.J. Mathews,
Philo Hodge (1756-1842) of Roxbury, Connecticut (1992), pp. 35-39,44.
