About David Williams

David Williams was born in Tarrytown, New York in 1759, and worked as a farmer, but in 1775 he joined the Continental Army after his role in the Boston Tea Party. He served under General Richard Montgomery, taking part in many campaigns until his feet were so badly frozen that he had to retire from his military service. He is most well known for his role in the capture of British officer John Andre in Tarrytown [Patriots Park] and received the “Fidelity Medallion” from George Washington for his service. Williams later died in 1836 and is buried in the Old Stone Fort Cemetery in Schoharie, New York.
