      Service: William Huntington served in Capt. Ezra Currier's Co., Col. Abraham Drake's regiment, N.H. militia. Enlisted September 8, 1777, discharged December 6, 1777. A list of New Hampshire men in Mass. regiments shows William Huntington as private in Capt. Moses McFarland's Co., of Col. Nixin's regiment, in camp on Winter Hill, September 30, 1775. Was probably in battle of Bunker Hill. William Huntington was with Gen. Washington in the retreat from Long Island to New Jersey in the winter of 1776. He helped rear the walls and mount the cannon at Fort Putman, and helped stretch the great chain across the Hudson River in April 1777. His last winter in the Army was spent at Valley Forge.
