Some extra notes added by Laura of the Washington county web page.
I did some looking for your Charlotte/Washington Co., NY,
did find some info for you. I am currently working on a manuscript that may
be useful to you later--once it's done and indexed--that lists a lot of the
Wash. Co. loyalists. Right now, I can just keep my eyes open for anything
that may be useful to you and let you know about it.
What I found was in "American Loyalists Claims," by Peter Wilson
Coldham, pub. by the Nat'l. Genealogical Society, 1980.
pg. 72--Robert Caldwell, White Creek, Albany Co., NY. A deposition for his
claim was given by David Scott of New Carlisle, who used to be a neighbor
before the war and said there was always plenty of food at his table.
pg. 375--Thomas Orr, New Perth, Charlotte Co., NY. A deposition for
claims was given by David Scott of New Carlisle, who lived in the
neighborhood of the claimant before the war.
pg. 436--David Scott, New Perth, NY. He was driven from there, joined
Skeenesborough June 1777, and served as Pvt. Memorial: 13 March 1786 New

him until after war had started; last summer he read in an American newspaper

name in Skeenesborough. (A013/14/194)
