      Capt George Pepperrell Frost
      Birth: Jan. 1, 1758, Kittery, York County, Maine, USA
      Death: Feb. 8, 1844, Rochester, Ulster County, New York, USA

      George Pepperrell Frost was born on 01 Jan 1758 in Kittery, York Co, ME, the youngest of ten children born to the union of John Frost, II and Sarah Gerrish.

      He enlisted in the Revolutionary War at the age of seventeen years. He served first as a Corporal in Captain Richard Shortridges' Company, Colonel Enoch Poor's Regiment. He signed for "first month's wages" July 14, 1775; hence, he must have enlisted about the time of the Battle of Bunker Hill. He remained in the army seven years.

      In 1776, he was commissioned as Ensign in Captain James Carr's Company, Colonel Nathan Hale's Regiment. On Sept 20, 1777, he was promoted to Second Lieutenant, and on Dec 22, 1777, became First Lieutenant. On Dec 6, 1782, he was commissioned Captain.

      He served in the battles of Hubbardston, Trenton, Princeton, Monmouth, and both battles of Stillwater.

      For his services in the Revolutionary War he was granted land in Rochester, Ulster Co, NY, and moved there from Greenland, NH in 1782. He was a farmer and joiner. His sword carried in the Revolutionary War is now (1943) in the possession of his descendant, Charles Monroe Frost of Poughkeepsie, NY.

      He married Elizabeth Gorsline, the daughter of James Gorsline and Kezia Thurston, in 1782 in Kittery, York Co, ME.

      They had six children, the first being still born, William, Martha, Sarah, Elizabeth and Mary. His wife Elizabeth passed away about 1794.

      He married Agnes Green on 08 Oct 1797 at Marbletown Reformed Dutch Church, Marbletown, Ulster Co, NY.

      George and Agnes had ten children, two still born: George Pepperrell, Mary, John, Joseph Hasbrouck, Jane, Abigail, Hannah Foster and James Monroe.

      George died on 08 Feb 1844 in Rochester, Monroe [sic; should be Ulster] Co, NY, aged 86 years 01 month 07 days. [Note by compiler: There are two populated places named Rochester in present-day New York, one of which places is the Town of Rochester in Ulster County, and the other one of which places is the City of Rochester in Monroe County. At the time of the 2010 census, the population of the Town of Rochester was 7,313, and the population of the City of Rochester was 210,565. The compiler believes that George Pepperrell Frost died in the Town of Rochester, Ulster County, NY.]
