Note: From John Laird, Santa Cruz, CA: The New Jersey John Crill, was first shown in New Jersey units of th e Revolutionary War. He is shown in the First Battalion, Second Estab lishment, First Regiment. Silas Newcomb was Colonel of the entire Fir st Battalion. The "Jerseymen in the Revolutionary War" book shows a John Crill in th e First Battalion, Second Establishment, First Regiment. The same boo k lists John Crill as a Private in Captain Cox's company, Third Battal ion, Second Establishment, and a Corporal in Captain Cox's company, Th ird Regiment. Muster Records from the National Archives show that Joh n Crill was a Corporal in Colonel Cox's Company from February 1, 177 7 to August 1, 1780. At the end he was owed eighty-nine pounds in bac k pay. The only two locations of muster roll entries were shown as El izabethtown in July and September 1778. Captain Cox's Company was i n the Third New Jersey Regiment commanded by Colonel Elias Dayton. There was also a listing for Corporal John Crill in the First Compan y of Foot, First New Jersey Regiment, commanded by Col. Matthias Ogden , between January and March 1783. There were a total of eleven muste r or payroll entries for John Crill between 1777 and 1783. John and Sarah Crill are shown in the records of the Zion Lutheran Chu rch, Oldwick, Hunterdon, New Jersey (The Congregation at New Germantow n, now Oldwick), births, baptisms, marriages, and deaths, 1770-1922 . They had two children: Catharina, and John. John Crill, son of Joh n and Sarah, baptized in the Zion Lutheran Church on November 12, 1782 . His parents were sponsors. Catharina Crill, daughter of John and Sa rah, baptized in the Zion Lutheran Church on June 19, 1785. Her paren ts were sponsors. This John Crill's Bounty Land Warrant is shown in the Abstracts of Rev olutionary War Pension Files that John Crill (BLW #8229-100-15) wa s a recipient of a Sept 1790 Bounty Land Warrant (assignee, Isaac Mun) , and served as a private in the New Jersey Line. An 1800 fire in Was hington, D.C. destroyed all Bounty Land Warrant files prior to that ti me, but an index exists. Record #8229 indicates that John Crill was entitled to one hundred acr es, and indicates that it was given at the War Office on September 15 , 1788. It appears that there is a second document indicating that Is aac Mun signed over the warrant to Aaron Harrison. Tax records for Lebanon Township, Hunterdon County, show John Grill a s a taxpayer in 1786, and John Crill as a taxpayer in 1790. The marriage for Martha Grill in Botetourt County, Virginia in 1818 sh ows that she was the daughter of John Grill, deceased. It also list s William, her brother, as a surety. If they are children of this Joh n Crill, William was born in Virginia ca 1789 and Martha was born in V irginia ca 1797 -- both of these dates and locations gleaned from thei r 1850 census entries.
