ISRAEL SEYMOUR (1735-1784)
ISRAEL SEYMOUR (1735-1784) 
Soldier of the Revolution, Continental Army Officer from Connecticut

Soldier of the Revolution, Continental Army Officer from Connecticut. Interestingly, although Seymour survived the American Revolution he was killed shortly thereafter by a bolt of lightning that entered his chimney, traveled through the floors of his house and struck Seymour as he stood in his own front doorway. Manuscript Pay Order authorizing £580 to finance a "company new to be raised." Dated June 20, 1776, just two weeks before America declared Independence! Seymour later led the company he raised throughout the war as part of Elijah Sheldon's regiment. Boldly signed "Israel Seymour." Fine condition – an excellent Revolutionary War/1776 item from a front-line patriot! $400.00
