Does anyone have an ancestor from Troy that fought in the Revolution? I
am trying to find names and short biographies of Troy patriots for a DAR
project. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I am
aware that most Irish came after the Revolution including my Irish
ancestors.
Thanks.

"Troy alderman George McCune gets his day in court 2 weeks after his
arrest
for disorderly conduct.The hearing was adjourned from yesterday so the
arresting officer ,Sgt Brophy could get witnesses, after complaining
yesterday he
was told only 20 minutes before the case was set to be heard. Brophy's
primary
witness is Patrolman Horton who says he noticed a man standing in front
of
Fosters saloon around 2am. Ordered to move along several times,McCune
refused
saying he was a taxpayer and citizen and he had a right to stand there
if he
wanted. Brophy says he asked Horton who the stranger was and then told
McCune
to mind his own business,then ordered McCune to leave after further
remarks
were made.He ordered Horton to lock McCune up after McCune refused
several
times to obey commands. McCune testifies Brophy crossed the street,
pulled him
from the doorway, saying he had no business there and placed him under
arrest
without any provocation. Magistrate Jones finds McCune guilty and
gives him
a suspended sentence. McCune is furious and states he is a taxpayer and
not
a thief or robber and would do nothing wrong. After more of this,
Magistrate
Jones orders him arrested again but telephones police headquarters and
has
him released before he has to post bail. "
