Happy 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day to the USA!! In honor of our independence, I'd like to remember our Revolutionary War veterans.

Our Crapser family line is descended from at least one Revolutionary War veteran, Joseph C. Lane. Joseph (1757-1839) served as a Private in a few Dutchess County (New York) Militia regiments. He served with the following regiments:
  • Second Regiment, under the command of Col. Abraham Brinkerhoff and Capt. Johannes Schutt. This unit was also known as "Brinkerhoff's Regiment".
  • Sixth Regiment, under Col. Samuel Drake and Capt. John Drake.
  • Associated Attempts, under the command of Col. Zephaniah Platt and Capt. Thomas Lee.

You can find Joseph C. Lane's pension records on, which has the Revolutionary War records collection free this month.
