Hanson gives a list of names of men from Danvers engaged in
the Revolution. As the list printed ahove is not and cannot, from
the imperfect nature of the existing records, he absolutely correct,
it is thought advisable to add such names given by Hanson which
will not be found elsewhere in this report. As the list was com-
piled in the forties, doubtless many of the names were obtained
from elderly people then living.

Barker, Benj. Reed, William

Berry, William Rue, William

Clinton, John Setchel, Jonathan

Colley. William Setchel, John

There are many evident errors in this list of Hanson's both in
Christian and surnames. Perhaps some of these were privateers-
men, of whom no other list exists.

During the twenty years following the Revolution many of the
veterans of that war obtained commissions in the militia and thus

eral, 17 June, 1801, was discharged 1806.

Goodale were captains. Adjutant, Daniel Osborn.
