In 1775, however, the war of the Revolution opened, and they enlisted, John, Jr., at the age of fourteen years, and they were in the army nearly two years, seeing hard and dangerous service at the siege of St. Johns and elsewhere, under General Montgomery. The father died at Albany in camp, and the son afterward studied for the ministry in the Associate Reformed (now United) Presbyterian church, and was pastor of a church of that body many years.
