About Benadam Gallup

He was deputy to the general court from Groton, Oct., 1753 {Conn. Col. Rec., 10: 196).

He acquired the title of colonel in the old French wars. In Feb., 1757, the Connecticut general assembly resolved to raise 1400 men for the next campaign. They were to form one regiment of fourteen companies and act in conjunction with the regular troops under the command of the earl of Loudoun. Col. Phineas Lyman was given command of the regiment. The 12th company was mostly from Groton and Preston, and was under the command of Capt. Benadam Gallop, of Groton. Many of his men had served before and were to serve again. Serg't Elias Avery (No. 197) and Serg't Charles Avery (No. 250) were in this company. Robert Niles (No. 298) was his clerk. The time of service was from Feb. to Dec. {Collections of the Conn. Hist. Soc, 9:166, 190).
