During the Revolutionary War, JACOB served as a private in the
First Regiment of the Tyron County Militia under Lt. Col.
Samuel Clyde and Capt. Jost Deggert. DAVID,JOHAN
JOST,NICOLAS,PETER P and DAVID JR SCHUYLER also served in the
same regiment.
Jacob was taken prisoner by the British during the Rev. War.
There are two accounts of his capture. The 1st account was
given in a letter written by ELIAS SCHUYLER(a grandson of
Jacob) to his daughter in 1893 which appeared in the Chicago
Inter Ocean in 1896. "JACOB SCHUYLER" was one of the guards
stationed at Ft. Herkimer. His family was in the fort and he
worked his farms nearby as occasion offered. While in the
fields, he was surprized and captured by the indians and taken
prisoner to Canada, leaving his wife and five small children,
the youngest a babe of 3 months."
The second account :
In the fall of 1780 JACOB SCHUYLER was stationed at Fort Stanwix
under Capt. Walter Vrooman. The Capt. was ordered to take a
detachment ot Chittenango Creek and destroy boats and stores
left there by Sir John Johnson's forces of Tories, Canadians
and Indians. The force had descended on the Mohawk Valley from
LaChine, an Island on the St. Lawrence River, and laid waste to
Schoharie Valley. Gen Robt. Van Renselaer pursued Sir Johnson
to Herkimer and from there sent orders to Ft, Stanwick. Captain
Vrooman accomplished his mission but was surprized on Oct. 23
while at dinner by a detachment of Col. John Buttler's Rangers
who were sent to intercept them by Sir Johnson. Among the
captured were JACOB,DAVID and HON YOST SCHUYLER. Capt. Vrooman
and his party were taken to Montreal, Canada and held two
years.
According to military records, JACOB was a prisoner fromn
10-23-1780 till 5-21-1783.
