I'm transcribing an account of the service of an ancestor in the 6th Regiment of the Dutchess County, New York Militia during the American Revolution. Three times there is made mention of a place:
"He again enlisted at Nine Partners in the year 1778 as near as he can recollect for the term of Nine Months and served under Captain James Tallmadge [6th Regiment] & Lieutenant Robert Wood in Hopkins' Regiment of New York Militia - That he was stationed at a placed called the Lay Pool (?) about twenty five miles from the Hudson [River] in the interior and whence prisoners were sent for safe keeping"
This place is mentioned three times. It looks like "Lay Pool" or "Log Jerst" or "Lay Joal". Each time it's almost impossible to read. Are there any records of the actions of the 6th regiment about 1778 that might let me know the name of this place?
