Peter Triplett |R*|r testified on Christmas day, 1849: In the year 1775 I entered in the State Line of Va. under Capt. John Lee. I was in service at Williamsburg, Hampton and the tidewater country. The command of the two State Regts. [p.577] was with Col. George Gibson and Col. Brent in 1777, when we were marched to Albemarle and inoculated with small pox. As soon as these two regiments were ready to move we marched to the North and joined Gen. Washington after the battle of Brandywine and before the battle of Germantown. Nathaniel Welch was then a Lieut. or Ensign in Brent's Regt.; I was in Gibson's Regt. I saw him frequently in service and knew him well. He was a good officer and one of the most active of the officers, and was sometimes Adjutant. ... He was made Capt. before we came from the northward, and he was both Capt. and Q. M. Maj. Welch managed ammunition, provisions, rations and all that sort of business. I enlisted in the spring of 1781 for the war in the Ill. Regt. and marched to the west, and was under George Rogers Clark in Roberts' Co. and Crockett's and Slaughter's Regts. I remained in service to the close of the war in 1783 and then returned home.
