  • Notes 
    • He served one month as a soldier at Fort Griswold near New London, CT, when only 13 years of age. The family then moved to Hoosick, now called Petersborough, when he was called upon to do military duty in the year of Burgoyne's surrender, 1778, and went as a scout with a company of 20 or 30 men to Fort Edward, Sandy Hill, Fort Ann and other posts. He enrolled in Capt. Austin Odell's company, in which his brother Lemuel was one of the sergeants. He marched in 1780 from Albany to the middle fort of Schoharie, and the next year he served nine months in the levies under Col. Willet, being mustered in May at Albany, in Capt. Elihu Marshall's company, and again he enlisted in April 1782, in the same company and was in the Battle of Turlock, 10 July 1782. His father was with him. He was discharged 1 Jan 1783 at Fort Hunter. The later enlistments were under the name Robert (for which Budd was a nickname), a name he had been given in childhood by his sister, although his father somtimes called him Robert and at other times Eliphalet. He always lived in Petersburgh and married twice. (Gwen Stuart)
