[email protected]@sonetcom.com I have some information on Caleb from Geauga Co., OH where he moved to in 1812.
"Cherished among the heirlooms of the Fowler family is the musket that
their ancestor, Caleb Fowler, captured from the British at Monmouth. The
grave of this soldier is located in the Burton Cemetery."
"Caleb Fowler was born at Guilford, Conn., Dec. 31, 1775. He was a private
in the Connecticut Continentals. He was married twice, to Mollie Chittenden
and Olive Miegs. His children were: Mollie, Clarinda, Rhoda, Desire, and
Phebe. The Fowlers moved to Burton in October 1812."
It goes on to say that Caleb enlisted in the service of the United States
on or about June 1, 1777 in Connecticut. He was in a company commanded by
Capt. Elijah Humphrey of the 6th Connecticut Regiment commanded by Col.
Meigs. He stayed in service until about Nov. 27, 1780 when he was
discharged for service in New Jersey. He was in a battle at King's Ferry
the day before Fort Montgomery was taken by the British. He was also in an
engagement at Elizabethtown.
Married Molly Chittenden, descendant of my 9th great-grandfather William Chittenden (founder of Guilford).
