    Text Private John Darwin 2.8 is listed, as John Durwin, on the 8th line from the bottom. The roll dates from shortly after the Battle of the Brandywine (11 September), in which Lt. William White received mortal wounds. This roll shows him "diceased 16th September", as later recollected in the 1833 Affidavit of David Bullock. This roll is complete, and shows 3 soldiers died and 5 wounded at Brandywine: 25% casualties.
