Prisoner of War, American Revolution
d.23 May 1778 Staten Island, Richmond County, New York
The name Adoram was used many times in the EVERINGHAM family but only after Adoram Dell's death. James Everingham was a loyalist who served with Henry DELL, and married Henry & Adoram's sister Chloe.
Adoram enlisted 2 Feb 1777. In August 1777 he was recruiting
in Sussex County, NJ. Recruiting was a very dangerous
occupation - getting oneself caught by the rebels could mean
the rope for the recruiter.
