About Sgt. Hiat Young

A Patriot of the American Revolution for MASSACHUSETTS with the rank of SERGEANT. DAR Ancestor #: A129803

Added by E. Nickerson- Col. Waits Words: In the winter of 1777-78, the people of Old Fal­mouth felt the anguish of her sons, who half-clothed and half-starved, were recording their devotion to liberty with the blood from their feet on the white snow at Valley Forge. The sufferings of those patriots we cannot describe, but their names will go down through generations to come, among the noblest heroes of our country.

In February, Col. Waite issued the following advertisement: —

Whereas a subscription is opened for the soldiers who enlisted from this town into the Continental army and are now in camp destitute of shoes, stockings and shirts, I make no doubt but every person who does not (like the Israelites of old) wish to return to bondage again, will contribute either shoes, stockings, shirts or cash to be sent by Lieut. (Daniel) Lunt for the immediate relief Of said soldiers. Any of the above articles will be received by the subscribers' humble servant.

John Waite.
