Roster printed in SH volume II, 467-68. Transformed from an online printing by SB. Shown here in almost original form. The "X" presumably denote's the soldier's mark. Each enlisted man was to receive two pounds, three shillings, three pence - although that notation has not been transcribed.

Livingston: This helpful notable is either Robert Livingston (the American patriarch) or his nephew and protege Robert Livingston, Jr., who was picking up on his uncle's chores at that time.
