Eli's grave was marked by the General Henry Dearborn Chapter of the DAR on August 25, 1931. On June 13, 1991, the Eli Skinner Chapter, NSDAR, rededicated his monument in honor of the 100th Anniversary of NSDAR and the 45th Anniversary of this Chapter. At the age of 14 years and 9 months, in the town of Shelburne, Massachusetts, he enlisted for a term of eight months with the Massachusetts state troops. Due to his young age, he was employed as a Fifer. In a few days he and several others from the town that had enlisted set out for Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Boston. On arrival at Cambridge he was assigned to a company under the command of Captain Agrippa Wills in a regiment under the command of Colonel Asa Whitcomb and Lt. Colonel Whitney. Eli Skinner served his 8 month enlistment at Cambridge, and was discharged and returned to Shelburne. In December 1776 a call was issued for troops to serve for a period of three months. Eli Skinner enlisted for this period, being mustered at Greenfield, Massachusetts on December 26, 1776 in a company commanded by Captain John Wells. From here they marched to Northampton, Massachusetts. Here, Captain Wells’ company was ordered to Fort Ticonderoga, for which they departed on December 27th by way of Chesterfield, Pittsfield, Greenbush, Albany, Fort Anne, Skeensboro and on to Fort Ticonderoga, arriving about January 6, 1777. On reaching Fort Ticonderoga Captain Wells’ company was attached to Colonel Robinson’s regiment. Here Eli Skinner remained for his three month enlistment performing garrison duty until his three month term expired and he was again discharged and returned to his home in Shelburne. Eli was my 1st cousin 6 times removed

Fourth and final print in the Braddock Series: THE REUNION, Tuesday, 28 November 1758 In late November 1758, after finally capturing Fort Duquesne, General Forbes ordered Lieutenant Samuel West and a detachment of the Pennsylvania Regiment to head an expedition to Braddock's Field and bury the bones of the soldiers slain on that fateful day in July 1755. Accompanying the expedition were some officers of the 77th Highlander Regiment, local Indians, and Forbes' Aide de Camp, Major Francis Halkett, who hoped to find the remains of his fathers, Sir Peter Halkett, and his brother, Lieutenant James. Questioning the Indians, Halkett found one who remembered an officer being struck down at the foot of a remarkable tree. When a second officer ran to give assistance, he too was shot and collapsed on top of the other. The Indian was confident that he could find the tree, Francis would find his father and brother. Robert Griffing's fourth and final image of the Braddock Series depicts the scene as young Halkett identifies their remains.

This photo was sent to me by a distant cousin of my wife Suzi Sage. It is thought to be Elias Sage born 1758. He was in the Revolutionary War. It is believed to possibly be the only known photo of him taken in 1845 when he was 87 years old. It is not yet verified to actually be him, but it is very likely considering that my wife's Uncle Mike looks just like him. If you have any photos of Elias A Sage Sr., or of his children, please contact me at carylandsuzi@yahoo.com
