  1. “Abram enlisted as a drummer boy in the Rev. War and was discharged as a Lt. after conspicuous bravery at the Battle of Monmouth* , N.J.  The Watertown D.A.R. has marked his grave in recognition of his Rev. War service.  He was in the 4th Reg. 4th Co. from May 5, 1779 to Feb 5, 1789.”

Margaret Rundlett Coulter (Arthur’s daughter) joined the D.A.R. on the basis of Abram’s service.
