Classification: Query
Surnames: WILLIAMS, SYPHER/SYPES, EACHARN/ACORN;
My research seems to indicate that participation in Rev War units was for a short time period. Also the unit names changed almost as frequently as the members.

I am looking for detailed personal and military information on the following:

Capt Frederick Williams - James Delancy's Westchester Refugees/Cowboys. father in law of
Jacob Sypher/Sypes - Butler's Rangers (wife's given name unknown) and
John Eacharn/Eachorn/Acorn - Robert Roger's Kings Rangers - 3rd Battalion disbanded PEI 5/17/1782; also Samuel Hayden's Kings Rangers disbanded on PEI 6/12/1784. (Married to Eleanor Williams 1788 & settled on the Isle of St John' - now PEI)

Frederick and Jacob settled in Digby Township, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, arriving in 6/5/1783 on the ships THETIS, NICHOLAS AND JANE.

Can you advise me how to further research these individuals and their military activities? I am running out of internet options.

Many Thanks
