From The Jubilee of 1826 by MARFY GOODSPEED on JULY 2, 2013 in HUNTERDON COUNTY

By 1826, Fourth of July celebrations were already a well-established tradition, beginning with the first one in Philadelphia in 1777, and a ritual seemed universally accepted: a parade accompanied by “bands of music,” from the courthouse to the church where a local or visiting minister would give a sermon, songs would be sung, a specially chosen person would read the Declaration, the minister would give his benediction, then everyone would parade back to the center of town and disperse, some to their homes, others to a hotel for a “handsome repast” followed by toasts. All would then go home feeling they had shared in the expression of patriotic feelings and appreciation for their exceptional country and for the sacrifices made to create it.1

As planned, the celebration began with the ringing of “the village bell, the display of the National Flag, and a salute of 50 guns.” At 11 a.m., 42 Revolutionary War veterans (including two black men, Lewis English and Jacob Francis) “reported themselves to the Committee of Arrangements.” They were given badges of broad white ribbon, stamped with the American Eagle, and the words and figures ‘Survivors of 1776,’ {which} were affixed to the left button-hole of their coats.” The Gazette listed the names of the veterans as follows, with dates and home towns added, if known:15

These gentlemen, who ranged in age from about 65 to 90 years, decided who would carry the banners (those carrying banners had participated in the battles they represented). They also chose “officers for the day,” Samuel Barber, Esq. and Capt. Tunis Case, both of Amwell/Delaware. The veterans then proceeded to the courthouse to await the parade.

From Find A Grave Memorial# 5816331

From the book "Stout and Allied Families," Third Edition 1986 by Herald F. Stout the following entry is found:

John Stout was a delegate to the Provincial Congress of New Jersey, May 23, 1775, the first Congress to be formed without authority of the Royal Government. John was the father of three revolutionary soldiers: Nathan and Moses were officers of distinction and the older brother, Abraham, was stricken with a fatal illness in the early part of the struggle. Abraham and his son, Solomon, fought side by side at the battle of White Plains where on October 28, 1776, Solomon was killed by a cannon ball. His father returned home and died soon after at the age of 42.
