Mark, please add categorization and Virginia to your tags on the question and someone should assist you with creating a new category if needed per your comments in the Answer below. I'm not up on the naming convention in use for Virginia militia groups.

I don't think you have the unit he served in, but it sounds like he served with the militia. 

{{1776|branch=Virginia}}

This sticker is going to have some blank entries such as for the begin date and end date. Right now the dates are not available.

Also, the template has entries that can be added from the letter until/unless you find the actual record.

{{1776
|startdate=1777; 1780
|enddate=1780
|units=Virginia Militia
|rank=Pvt.
}}

Here's a better explainer on how to fill out this sticker template from an earlier G2G post: thanks to Lucy (above) for this answer...

Thanks everyone for the help! One snag now... The Category I need does not exist.

Under Virginia Militia I have a choice of three that don't exist:

Colonel William Romney's Regiment, Colonel Lucas' Regiment or Colonel Glen's Regiment...

I don't have the expertise to create any categories. Please advise.
