On December 27, 1889, the Governor of Wisconsin, at the request of the National Socity of the Sons of the American Revolution, appointed a committee of Wisconsin gentelmen to organize a branch of that society in Wisconsin. The organizing committee meeting was held at the Plankington House, Milwaukee, January 14, 1890. On February 25, 1890, a permanent organization was effected, a constitution adopted, and offiers elected to serve until the annual meeting. The date of the annual meeting was fixed for May 29, this being the date of the admission of the State of Wisconsin into the American Union. On June 25, 1891, the headquarters of the society were permanently established in Milwaukee. The society especially in recent years, has been regular in holding its meetings, and the interest of the manager in the monthly assemblies of the Board of Managers has been sustained.

The society has been largely instrumental in the celebration of Flag Day on every June 14. Prizes have for several years been offered to members of the graduating class in Wisconsin High Schools for essays upon themes connected with the American Revolution.

Joint meetings have occasionally been held with the Daughters of the American Revolution, at which speakers from abroad have delivered addresses and the patriotic and historic spirit of the members of both organizations has been stimulated.

This society is now in a flourishing condition and is striving to do better work with each coming years.

Later, while at home at Truro, accompanied by his son David, a lad of 15 years, he was fishing in his boat off Truro coast. Both he and his son were taken prisoners of war by an English privateer known as the Shaving Mill. The British, being especially desirous of destroying the Cape Cod fisheries, treated all engaged in this occupation as belligerents. David Snow, with his son, was carried to Halifax, and thence to Old Mill prison, Plymouth, England. David Snow planned an escape from the prison and, proposing a great frolic and dance among the prisoners to drown the noise, succeeded during the dance in filing off the prison bars and escaped with his son and thirty-four other prisoners. They marched to Plymouth Harbor and capturing a scow put to sea. They finally captured a small vessel in which they sailed to France, where they sold their vessel. From there they returned to America, where they arrived just after the declaration of peace.

D. Oilpliant, now of Trenton, New Jersey, a grandson of said John Oliphant, states that when a youth he was told by men of advanced years who knew said John Oliphant from early manhood that the latter, against the wishes of his parents (on account of his youth), left home, stole a Quaker neighbor's rifle, powder-horn and shot-pouch — with the consent and co- operation of said Quaker — and enlisted in Hand's Rifles of New Jersey. It is presumed that such enlistment was under an assumed name.

JONATHAN MOULTON a resident of Hampton, New Hampshire, took command of the Third regiment of that colony, August 24, 1775. This regiment he equipped at his own expense. He was at Saratoga in October, 1777. The records at Exeter, New Hampshire, and family tradition agree that the surrender at Saratoga was principally due to Moulton's sagacity and efficient aid on the field - General Gates being detained at the rear. The regiment which Colonel Moulton commanded was during his command employed largely by detachments, for the people of New Hampshire had their own sea coast to defend as well as to serve elsewhere. An invasion by sea was sometimes threatened and always feared, and Colonel Moulton was called to this service in the Revolution. For his services in the war and for his generosity in equipping the Third regiment he received the title of General, and was given the township of Moultonboro, New Hampshire. He was born July 21, 1726, in Hampton, and died there September 18, 1787.
