Milit-Begbetween 1775 and 1777Putney, Windham Co., VT, USA, According to Putney Histor. Soc.: in Capt. Robt. Langle's Co. of Asa Whitcomb's Regt. April 19, 1775 for eight months as a drummer, and in 1777 Aug for 25 days was in Col. Wm. Williams Regt.

He is mentioned in an article in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, vol 150, July 1996 by Ken Stevens, entitled "Abijah Moore's Company of Cumberland County Minute Men". Most of this militia unit were former Mass. residents who recently had moved to Putney, Vt. and vicinity. They received word of the action at Lexington 3 days after the event, but it took them only 3 1/2 additional days to gather and march the 120 miles to relieve the men in the combat area.

Per pages 342/343: private, of Putney, service for 7 days. Enlisted 26 April 1775 as drummer in Capt. Robert Longley's company in Col. Asa Whitcomb's (23rd) regiment of Continental troops. He also served for 25 days in the Saratoga campaign in Capt. John Petty's company of Col. William Williams' regiment of Vermont militia, which marched from Westminster on 29 August 1777.
p. 329: "Years later Ebenezer Houghton, when applying for a veteran's pension, recalled: "On the 19th of April 1775 I was a resident of Putney, Windham country, Vermont. On Saturday night subsequent this deponent heard the news and on Sunday morning I started for Cambridge." (Abijah Moore's company were the only troops from the Province of NY and the first unit from what now is Vermont to participate in the Rev. War.) Houghton enlisted in the Continental Army at Cambridge on the 26th. They covered the 120 miles in 3 and a half days.

Ebenezer was a drummer in the Revolutionary War. His Revolutionary War pension file states "Ebenezer Houghton of Ostego in the State of New York who was a drummer in the company commanded by Captain Langley of the Regt_ commanded by Col. Whitcomb in the Vermont line for 11 months"
