About Samuel Day

1. Unable to find reliable documentation of Samuel's birth or parentage... FROM MANSFIELD, MA REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS: Samuel Day was listed in April 1775 as enlisted in the service of the United States under Capt. Moses Knapp. Sam Day was also listed in Feb. 4, 1776 as enlisted with Lieut. Benj. Bates, who would be his future father-in-law. Sally Bates would have been not quite 3 years old at this time. Samuel must have been at least 16 years of age in 1775 since this was the minimum age for enlistment…..In Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War another MA record “Bud’s Highlands, Feb. 23, 1782” describes Samuel Day of Mansfield, in Col. Shephard’s 4th Regiment, age 22 yrs, stature 5ft 7in. This would make his birth year c.1759-60.
