About Gilbert Edgecomb

(Steven Kelley is researching this individual - parents in question)

Defender of Fort Griswold, taken prisoner.

"Samuel E was ploughing for rye at the time of the alarm and left for the fort at once not stopping to loose his oxen. He was 21 years of age and died at the age of 83 years at the old homestead on the west slope of Fort Hill in the same house in which he was born. His brother Gilbert was carried away prisoner." source: The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...By William Wallace Harris, p. 51
