We have at least FIVE revolutionary war soldiers in our family.
- Abijah Stoddard He died in battle at Crown Point, New York 1776
- Ichabod Stoddard He is not yet confirmed by the Daughters of the American Revolution, but a book written in the 1850's lists him as being sick at Ticonderoga
- Ute Perkins He was also the oldest person to join the Mormon church up til the 1840's and knew the Prophet Joseph Smith. He died of old age just before the martydom of Joseph. His wife died shortly after.
- Philo Hodge He happened to be in New York as a soldier at the time that George Washington read the Declaration of Independence to the soldiers there, and likely was there for the reading. There is an entire book written about him and his descendents.
- William Hodge He fought for only one day and was killed. He answered the call to protect Fairfield, Connecticut from the British as they tried to cross the Byram River Bridge.
We also have 11 Mormon Pioneers from the Dickson and Jacobson sides of the family.
