Information RE: HENRY SEWALL was of the sixth generation in lineal descent when he enlisted as a soldier soon after the battle of Lexington. In the course of three of four campaigns he passed through the various subordinate grades to that of captain, which rank he sustained to the end of the war. He was in the battle of Hubbardston on the retreat from Ticonderoga, and in one of the skirmishes previous to the surrender of Burgoyne at Saratoga, of which event he was a witness. He wintered at Valley Forge in 1778, and served the remainder of the war in New Jersey and the highlands of New York.
