Service: First Existing Record of John Partridge Bull's Military Enlistment

Enlisting | Moving Up | French & Indian Wars | Reenlisting | Last Reenlistment


Our first piece of evidence shows that John Partridge Bull enlisted in the military at age seventeen, he served under a Lieutenant Seth Pomeroy (1706 - 1777). Bull's name is found, along with 28 other names, as part of a group who "went to Deerfield August 1748." This would probably have been his first opportunity to enlist.

-- referenced in Robert E. McKay, ed. Massachusetts Soldiers in the French and Indian Wars, 1744 - 1755. New England Genealogical Society, 1978. p. 64.

See Trade section for more details on the possible relationship between Bull and Pomeroy.
