Notes for John Brown:
According to the account by John Anderson's mother John lived in Meddletown and was a shipbuilder. He joined the Army and was made a Federal Scout serving under Gen. George Washington in the Continental Army. He sought tories who were aiding the British battleships. Tories had food and supplies in boats ready to take down the Shrewsbury River to the Bristish boats lying around the bay. Brown and his scoutsc aptured the food and gave it to needy families of the Continental soldiers. Information he obtained was taken to the colonel and then relayed to the seat of government. John was taken prisoner on the Prison Ship Jersey. During an exchange of prisoners there happened to be two Joh Browns, so when the names was called he stepped up and said "Here I am , Sir", then jumped overboard and was rowed ashore.
Another incident is told of "Devil John" which occurred in Middletown, NJ. Some Tories and British were having a party. John overthrew the sentry and made the occupants believe there were soldiers outside by saying, "Surround the house, boys". They then took bed cord and bound nine men. The following morning he marched them to Freehold headquarters. It was then that Ge. Washington offered him a commission but because he thought he was not educated he refused the offer. He told Washington he only wanted to serve under his leadership.
He also fought at the Battle of Monmouth. It began on a Sunday morning said to be one of the hotest days ever recorded. On going into the conflict John hung his coat on the limb of a tree. Fortunately he was not wounded. At sunsent he found his coat where he had placed it, thre it on ohis arm and trudged back to his home in Middletown well satisfied with his day's work.

from the Rockefeller Genealogy, Vol. IV, compiled by Henry Oscar Rockefeller, M.D., Brooklyn , New York, Historian of the Rockefeller Family Association, Inc.:
      " He was a Supervisor in Germantown , NY 1807-1813. He was a Juror in 1811 and classed as a blacksmith. The latter years of his life he spent with his son, Peter F. and his grandchildren vividly remember his exceeding tenderness toward them. Frequently when they were in danger of chastisement he would spread his knees apart and throw his arms around the little ones as they ran into this shelter, which they called their "house" as he pledged for their future obedience. At other times he would hold them spell-bound as they circled by the old-fashioned fireplace to listen to his interesting tales of Revolutionary days. He had the honor of dining with General Lafayette at the Livingston Manor, Clermont, new York, when Lafayette visited America in 1825. His son Peter F. being much younger, ate with the town people on the lawn." p. 25
