WHICH INCLUDE VOUGHT & CROFT
SOLDIERS OF THE
AMERICAN REVOLUTION

[From N.J.
State Chairman, Mrs. Mather I? Garthwaite
Aug 4, 1960]

[47815]

 
   Mr. Randolph Croft who lived near Peekskill, and for whom 
I had great respect, gave me some data of the older Croft 
families, and he also substantiated what I already had regard-
ing John Croft, the head of this branch of the Croft family; 
that he was in the employ of the Duke of Baden in Germany, 
and emigrated to America with the Duke’s daughter.
   Mr. John Croft and his wife settled at Stillwater, Saratoga 
County, New York, and it is presumed that they are buried at, 
or near Stillwater.
   Their children were all born in Saratoga County and Their 
son John was probably laid to rest there as he died young.

James Croft
Died March 9 1839 – age 84 years

   “He was a brave soldier of the Revolutionary War, who for 
five long years suffered all the privations and calamities 
so common to a soldiers life.  But he had a glorious object in 
view which was the deliverance of his Country from the tyranny 
and oppression of a foreign foe.
   He lived to see that accomplished for which he fought so 
bravely, namely, the independence of his Country.  After his ser-
vices were no longer called for by his Country, he settled in 
Phillipstown where he spent the remainder of his days, beloved 
and repected by all who knew him.
   He lived a virtuous live, died a peaceful and happy death.
