Military Info : My 4th great grand uncle was Adoram Dell. Adoram enlisted 2 Feb 1777 in the 1st Battalion, NJ Volunteers under Col. Joseph Barton (Loyalists). (Welland Co. History, 1887.) In August 1777 he was recruiting in Sussex County NJ. Recruiting was a very dangerous activity-getting caught by the rebels could mean the rope for the recruiter. Adoram was not caught. Have internet copy of Muster Roll (maybe March 1776) of Captain Silas Hopkin's Company, showing Doram Dell and Henry Dill/Dell.
Adoram died on Staten Island in May 1778 (probably either killed or died of wounds) and was buried on Staten Island, according to records filed by brother Henry in his petition for a Crown Grant of land as a discharged soldier.
