From: "History of Washington Co., New York" by Chrisfield Johnson, Philadelphia: Everts & Ensign., 1878, pa. 284:
"Roger Barrett was a son of Hildreth Barrett, of Killingworth, Conn., and at the age of sixteen, together with his father, enlisted in the American army and fought through the Revolution. He was at West Point, under Benedict Arnold, when the gallant but unfortunate Major Andre was captured, and witnessed his execution. When Clinton evacuated the city of New York, he was a member of the force under Washington that marched into the city. At the close of the war he settled in Whitehall. He came to Dresden (then Putnam) in 1806, and bought the farm now occupied by Eleazer McMore. About 1810-1812 he returned to Whitehall, where he remained till 1816, when he again came to Dresden, and this time to stay. He died in Dresden, June 13, 1838. His family consisted of ten children, two of whom died in infancy. The names of the others were Joseph, Jane, Anna, David, Smith, Sally, Wilson, and Polly. Joseph, Jane and Polly are dead. The others still reside in town (1878)."
