About Thomas Welles

Defender of Fort Griswold, taken prisoner.

"Thomas Welles, born in Groton, September 12, 1753, we learn from the family history, had been a very successful privateersman - on part of his voyages at least; but in September 1781 was a gunner in the garrison at Fort Griswold. He was taken prisoner, carried to New York from whence he returned to duty in November. He was granted a pension in 1831, and died in Groton in 1848." source: The Battle of Groton Heights: A Collection of Narratives, Official Reports ...By William Wallace Harris, p. 247
