True went to Rhode Island in Capt. Marston's companv,

In the early part of the war the soldiers were mainly
citizens, and enlisted for short terms, and many of them
appear on several rolls, and with a degree of accuracy can
be assigned to their respective towns ; but later many
strangers were enlisted, who, when their names appear on
a roll, cannot be assigned to any town with any certainty.
There are recruits credited to the towns, some without any
mention of what companies they>were assigned to, or what
service cno-ao-ed in.

There is a history of the First New Hampshire Regi-
ment, by Frederic Kidder, 1868, containing a roll of the
enlisted men who served between January, 1777, and Jan-
uary, 1782, which contains the names of John Knook and
David Shirley of Chester, and of Thomas Caj)ron of Candia,
not on the foregoing list.

The foregoing is a list of the soldiers furnished by Ches-
ter, as correct as can be conveniently made from the army-
rolls ; but those cover so much ground, and so many
strange names occur, which are not assigned to any par-
ticular town, that it is probably very incomplete. There
are names of men on the town accounts to whom bounties
were paid, and the names of others to whom notes were
paid, probably for bounties, without being so designated,
which mostly, if not all, are included in the foregoing rolls,
so that it was not thought best to spend the time in col-
lecting, and space in the History to print it.

Great exertion had to be used to raise men. The town
was divided into classes, according to the immber of men
to l)e raised, and one or more men assigned to each class,
which they were required to raise. The town was also
classed to raise beef and corn for the army, and also to
support the soldiers' families.



The following specimen of the requisitions was found
among the papers of Col. Stephen Dearborn :

To Capt. Stephen Dearborn and Rohert Howe : Agree-
ably to an act of the General Court and a vote of the
town, the following persons Avho are named, with the
amount of their ratable estate, are to procure an able-
bodied, effective man for the Continental service three
years, or during the war, to be ready to be mustered in on
or before the lUth day of May next, or pay the line agreea-
ble to law and vote of the town. You are desired to
notify each one in this list to meet and prescribe such
method as they shall think proper in order to procure s*^
