In the selections made by our forefathers, we find that they were wise, and that but one of the number chosen proved false to the trust. Although several members of this committee were not enrolled and did not perform such military duty as the term might imply, their services as a war committee appear so intimately connected with the services of those who did bear arms, that I give them a place in the military family.

Johannes Ball, Chairman,
was chosen chairman at the organization of the committee, and held that position during the war. He was a marked man from the first, and a subject for capture or assassination, bnt escaped all harm, though at times in an apparently providential manner. The date of his death I have been unable to obtain. Two sons, Peter and Mattice, were enrolled in the First Company, as will be found. It is evident that his services as a war statesman were invaluable, and if tradition be true that he was the father of twenty-two children, he was not the man to yield to a King. A great grandson and grandson of Peter, George Ball of Sharon, survives him: William Ball of Schoharie and Harvey Ball, of Esperance are grandsons of Chairman Ball and his second wife.

Pieter—Peter Vrooman, Colonel, retained his position on the committee, as secretary, during its existence.

Joseph Becker with his three brothers were enrolled in the service and are accounted for in the roster.

George Warner, Sr., was born in Wittenberg, Germany, Jane 24, 1720, removed to America at the age of twenty-four, and at the time of the Revolution lived at what is now Warnerville, and had three sons, Nicholas and Geo., Jr., enrolled in the service, and David, "a lad of twelve years." Efforts to capture him failed until December 9,1782, when "Seths Henry" with a party of six Indians, who had been sent from Canada, through heavy snow, for the express purpose, succeeded in taking him and his son Nicholas prisoners. The party encamped for the night near what is now Richmondville, and at the entrance to Brooker Hollow. Late in the night Nicholas escaped, but his father remained a prisoner and followed his captors to Canada. From Niagara he was sent to "Rebel Island" and given parole liberty. During his captivity he was treated with comparative kindness, and after remaining eleven mouths and being sworn to secrecy, he was exchanged. Died Jnne, 1815, aged 95. His wife Dorsa died May, 1817, aged 91.
A great-great-grandson, Lieutenant Geo. W. Snyder, U.S.A., died in the service during the war for the Union. His grandsons Marcus and John Warner served in the war of 1812. Granddaughter, Mrs. John Hynds. Great-grandson Sylvester Warner. Great-great-grandson, Marcos D.

Peter U. Zielie, Lieutenant-Colonel.

Joseph Borst,
served in the Militia and accounted for.

Peter Becker,
enrolled in Captain Becker's company for service abroad.

Peter Swart,
no positive data concerning this man. It is barely possible that he was the "Peter Swart, ensign," who was-very young at the beginning of the war.

William Zimmer,
"of Breakabeen," is referred to by Simms as proving disloyal to the Patriots.

William Dietz
had a son William, Jr., enrolled for service.

Samuel Vroman,
a merchant, resided in Lower Vroman's Land, and enrolled for service. Father of "Susannah."

Adam Vroman,
supposed to have been a grandson of Adam the first, and son of the first Peter, and grand or great-grandfather of Dow J. Vroman of Middleburg, N.Y. Died October 28, 1822, aged 88.

Jacob Zimmer
resided in the eastern portion of the county. Had four sons, Peter, George, Adam and William, -not the committeeman- enrolled for service. Great granddaughters, Lovina Bigelow, Elmina Weidman.

Nicholas Sternberg
had four sons enrolled for service - Abram, David, Jacob and Lambert. Grandsons surviving, Abraham of Seward and Levi.

Sebastian France
has been referred to in one instance as a committeeman, but I find nothing more to corroborate the statement. It is very probable that he was consulted on matters of interest to the Patriots, as he was a firm supporter of their cause, and resided in a Tory neighborhood.
