Part of the problem in this is that all published works I am finding have no references for their source of information. ugh! Another part of the problem as far as examining records in person, for me, is that I live in the south :( and I'm no where near CT or NY to go look at records.

I have not happened across any on-line databases as of yet that have helped to sort this out.

A couple other things that have me stumped:
1) one source has that Jonas was in Capt Geo. Gray's Co of militia. The ONLY Capt. Gray I can locate with a Jonas Platt enlisted is a John, not a George.

2) Another source has Jonas served for 3 months time and received a bounty for his time. The record I have for Jonas, being attached to Capt. John Gray's Co states he only served 25 days.

I'm finding it hard to believe both men were this involved when all evidence is beginning to point to just one, but I'm not ruling out they both served in some way.
