Inscription. “If the captain wants me, he may come himself and if he does I will shoot him.”

With these words, Charles Green refused induction into the N. Jersey rebel militia. Imprisoned, he escaped and joined the “King’s Rangers” a loyalist unit. He “suffered very considerably both in person and property”. At war’s end he walked from N. Jersey leading his wife and two children on horseback. His wife Rebekah, buried next to him, gave birth eight days later to a daughter. The first white child born on the frontier. He donated these lands, part of a grant from George III, to the Methodist Church.
