Archibald McMillen 1728-1796
Eleanor Graham (?)-1814
Came from Belfast, Ireland to avoid religious persecution. He was a Scot-Irish Covenanter.
Archibald was a private in Captain William Scott’s company of Colonel John Stark’s regiment at the battle of Bunker Hill. Archibald was wounded in the right elbow by a musket ball and lost the use of his right hand. He was unable to follow his trade of weaver and petitioned the NH General Assembly for a pension.
His pension papers include a statement from Col. Stark which states “Archibald McMillan of New Boston & Peter Robertson of Amherst, both of my regiment were with me in Bunker Hill Battle & were wounded & knew them to behave very Courageous in that Action.” The NH State archives are available online at http://sos.nh.gov/Papers.aspx
