* Andrew Gallup was an artilleryman at the massacre at Fort Griswold, Sept 6, 1781; while working his gun before the capture of the fort, he was struck by a musket ball coming through the embrasure, passing through his hip. He was soon taken away from his post at the gun, and laid helpless on the ground out of the way, facing the north gate, and saw while lying thus the enemy rush in through the gateway, and heard the shout of the British officer at the head of the advancing column: "Who commands this post!" and the reply of Col. Ledyard, as he advanced to meet him, handing him his sword: "I did, but you do now." The officer took the sword, and infuriated by the unexpected slaughter, immediately plunged it into Ledyard's breast. Afterward Andrew was stabbed with a bayonet as he lay helpless on the ground, the point striking a rib glanced to one side, making a long though not a deep wound, leaving a large scar; he was also stabbed in the arm. He was one of the wounded soldiers who were put in a cart and sent rolling down the hill. Possessing a strong and vigorous constitution, he recovered form his wounds,. After the war he settled in Groton as a farmer. (From Gallup Genealogy, 1966)

* Robert Gallup was severely wounded at Battle of Groton Heights, Sept 6, 1781; twice by a bayonet and felled by the blow of a musket, breaking his hip and rendering him insensible. He was found in this condition the next morning by his mother who went to to the Fort searching for him. He eventually recovered and was one of the first settlers in Plymouth, NY. (From Gallup Genealogy, 1966)
