When the Revolutionary War started in 1775, Uriah was 181/2 years old. in working with old records and Lucretia's pension application, we have concluded he signed up as a Continental soldier in Windham County in a Connecticut Unit on 1 May 1775. His major was John Durkee of Norwich. Uriah's first big battle was Bunker Hill on 17 June 1775, where he served under General Putnam.

Grandfather 9th generation: Abraham LUCAS - was a Revolutionary War soldier and applied for a pension but not successfully. He had no education, could not read or write and that for this reason was unable to recollect names and dates and was unable to substantiate his service sufficiently to obtain a pension.

In the Red Stone country on the waters of the Monongahela River in the western part of the State of Pennsylvania -- That he was then living on the waters of the Monongahela and he supposed the country was not laid off into counties -- This was in the latter part of the fall or beginning of winter -- After he volunteered they marched and helped build Fort McIntosh on the Little Beaver Creek on the west side of the service aforesaid the orderly sergeant Jonathan Harnett (or Hamett) was removed by Capt.
