    Paraphrase of letter from George B Hurlburt about his grandfather's (Waite Hurlburt) service in war of 1812 and his great grandfather's service in revolution. Letter is looking into land grants. "Adam was a captain I think in the Commissary Department, and I think, enlisted from Conn., but afterward moved to Underhill, VT. ... Our family lost a letter in a fire which destroyed the old homestead once, a number of years ago. The letter was signed by George Washington, recommending Adam for a pension and stating his services."

    Editorial note: Not clear if this is this Wait Hurlburt as a pensioner due to his father's service in revolution and his service in war of 1812; not that he was in the revolution himself. Or this might be a diferent Wait Hurlburt (although the move to Vt supports it being this Wait).
