Patriot civilian and military refugees from New York and Long Island
Large numbers of Patriot refugees,
including most of the Long Island militia, crossed over to
Connecticut in 129 ships, 48 of which were commanded by Long
Lsland refugees. Many of the Long Island refugees enlisted in the
3rd and 4th N.Y. Continental Regiments.
Among the militia officers were: Col. Jacob Blackwrll, Col. William Floyd, Col. David Mulford, Col. Josiah Smith, Col. John Young, Maj. Jesse Brooks, Maj. Richard Thorne, Capt. Ephraim Bayles, Capt. Benjamin Birdsell, Capt. William Boerum, Capt. Benjamin Conkling, Capt. David Fordham, Capt. John Foster, Capt. Joseph, Capt. Robert Harris, Capt. Selab Strong, Capt. John Weeks, Capt. Thomas Wickham, Lt. Benjamin Cor, Lt. Thomas Dering, Lt. David Gilston, Lt. William Havens, Lt. Barnett Miller, Lt. Andrew Onderdonk, Lt. Henry Scudder, and Lt. Thomas Treadwell.
Among the Long Island Patriot refugees who went to Connecticut were numerous adult male members from the following families who must have increased and multiplied in almost 200 years and spread throughout the nation. They are listed numerically: Conkling 40, Reeves 20, Rogers 20, Topping 20, Halsey 15, Halleek 13, King 12, Sayre 12, Bayley 10, Corwin 10, Gardiner 10, Gilderslreve 10, Griffing 10, Howells 10, Hedges 10, Terry 8, Gelston 7, and Sanford
