CHRONICLES OF THE CROFT FAMILY WHICH INCLUDE VOUGHT & CROFT SOLDIERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION [From N.J. State Chairman, Mrs. Mather I? Garthwaite Aug 4, 1960]  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 Dukes 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. W. P. Horton. From grave marker in St. Peters yard VanCortlandville, near Peekskill, 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.
