About John Paulding

A Patriot of the American Revolution for NEW YORK with the rank of Private. DAR Ancestor # A086633

John Paulding was a Revolutionary War hero. "He participated, along with fellow militiamen David Williams and Isaac VanWart, in the capture of Major John Andre at a site now called Patriots Park in Tarrytown, New York. Holding him in custody, they discovered documents of André's secret communication with Benedict Arnold. The militiamen, all local farmers of modest means, refused his considerable bribe and instead delivered him to the Continental Army. Arnold's plans to surrender West Point to the British were revealed and foiled, and André was hanged as a spy." from: Troy Irish Genealogy Society Profile photo from: Find a Grave http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=8867564 added by Gene Baumwoll
