Sampson was my 8th great grandfather. I am descended from his son Benjamin. I am interested in learning more about his military history. Ironically, one of my other ancestors, Robert Mac Laughlin, from Scotland, ended up in the New World because he fought against Cromwell's army and was deported after being captured. I guess the dragoons had other reasons for ending up over here. Eventually, my ancestors ended up in northern NY State. The last Mason in my line, was Anne b. 1772, daughter of Christopher. Where did you end up?
