Wow! I have a war-hero ancestor, too. Scarlett, Newman, Tewksbury.Sergeant, in a Tewksbury co. of militia commanded by Lieut. Thomas Clark, Col. Green's regt., which marched on the alarm of April 19, 1775; Guess they probably never met, but wouldn't it be interesting if they did and we could prove it?
