  • Served in the American Revolutionary War. Was a prisoner from 1780-1781 when he escaped and was located at West Point from that time until the end of the war.

    George Palmer Ransom, (1762-1850), was a member of his father's company. He was taken prisoner, endured privations in Canada, escaped and served to the close of the war. Source: The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution Volume 39 page 367

    He bore the title of Colonel and was prominent in Luzerne County until his death, in 1850, when he was 89 years old."
    Robert of Colchester undoubtedly led an industrious life and was largely engaged in the acquisition of wealth, though it would probably do him an in justice to say that he did not divide his time impartially between treasur es of the heavenly and earthly sort, for his interest manifested in the af fairs of the Colchester Society indicates that he did not overlook the spi ritual concerns of the good people with whom his fortunes were cast. His daily duties and exemplary life, as commemorated by local and family records, mark him as an interesting character. He and Alice reared a large family, 7 boys and 4 girls, and all them, so far as the history of their careers has been preserved, seem to have achieved success in their varied lives, and their share of honors in public stations.

    Robert died supposed on the old farm near Colchester.
    Moved to Colchester, Conn., with his father-in-law, James Newton, 1708.
