Believe this Eli Edwards' father (also Eli Edwards m. to Hannah Wilsie born 1762) might have fought in the revolutionary war at the age of 14 or even younger.

I concur from my searches this is one of Eli' the firsts son born in New York. The family hails fomr Connecticut and I found a Ell Edward no information in the Connecticut revolut-ionary archives. digital ehanced difficult to decipher. Family has ties with Henry the 8th of England. Land dispute in New York owned by Trinity Church. Dawes list for chocktaw indian this Eli would be one quarter.

If the elder Eli was born in 1762 he could have easily been a revolutionary soldier. The Rev War ended in 1782 so he would have been 20 years old. I keep looking - someday we will find the proof.
