      The original biographical sketch listed between [** ]'s above was drawn from the pages of an undated manuscript titled "Names and Service of Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in Wyoming, Pennsylvania. Compiled by Adelaide McKown Hawke, Historian Tunkhannock Chapter, D.A.R., Tunkhannock, Penna." Make note that several details have been called into question and there are no sources mentioned in that manuscript other than that of "Information from Samuel B. Adkins, Kingston, Pa."
