Claims and Memorials
Certification of Asher Dunham's recruiting warrant

Staten Island, Septembr. 4th 1778.

I hereby Certify that on or about the fifteenth day of December 1776 Asher DUNHAM applied to me and informed me that he had inlisted some Men, and was able to raise a Company; Whereupon I gave him orders to recruit, and sent him several times into the Country for intelligence; on which service he behaved faithfully.

Sometime afterwards, I sent him on a Command, with eighteen or Twenty Men, to Assist in building the Redoubts, at Bonham Town, and at the same time gave him a Warrant, as a Captn. and inform’d Lieutenant Col. DONGAN that he was to Recruit for the third Battallion.

Soon after he was sent on Command with Majr. STOCKTON to Bennets Island, where he was taken Prisoner; but through the Neglect of L. Col: DONGAN, he was not return’d in the list of Officers.

But I do Certify that he had my Warrant for a Captain, Recruited several Men and was taken Prisoner acting as a Captain in the third Battallion by my orders and Warrant.

(Sign’d)   Courtland SKINNER B.G.

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Audit Office, Class 13, Volume 21, folio 152.
