Military Info : 1776 - Tyron County Militia, Clydes Regiment.

It was reported that Moses was in the 84'th Regiment of KRRNY 2'nd Battalion (24 Jun 1782) and possibly 9'th Regiment of Upper Canada (April 1782) in St Nicolas, QC.
However, we know that he was in the KRRNY, so it is unlikely he was in the 84th. Also the 9'th Regiment of Upper Canada did not exist in that time frame as Upper Canada did not come into existence until 1791.
