In the Revolutionary War he was commander of the forces in that county. He lived at Conegochaegue Manor Plantation.

  Birth Notes:

The part of Prince Georges County in which he was born became Frederick County in 1749 and is now Montgomery County, Maryland. (See sources http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=fhc3337847&id=I2577 and http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=takeapart&id=I18328.)
