I'm having problems with the unit designations on the new 1776 stickers for seven profiles I manage.
Barnabas Conant served with the Sea Coast Defense force in Massachusetts during the Revolution. I can't find a category for these companies or, if applicable, for their overall unit. I assume he would have been part of the Massachusetts Militia, but can't even say that for certain. What should I have for his unit designation? He did serve for about 4 months in a "Guard" regiment, but I have no idea whether that would be militia or Continental Army.
I assume that the two unit designations I have for Gideon Batchelder (Col. Israel Hutchinson's 19th Regiment and the 27th Regiment) were Massachusetts militia units, but I can't find a category for either one, so I hesitate to try doing the sticker.
Another profile profiles with a similar problem: Jesse Story, Sr. I'm waiting to add a sticker to this profile until I have some clarification for Barnabas Conant, since both served in Massachusetts sea coast defense units - I'm assuming that "Colonel Foster's regiment" where Jesse Story, Sr. served was a Massachusetts Militia unit.
I tried changing the stickers for Jesse Story, Jr. and Parker Story, since their units already had (I thought) viable categories, but still have a "needs review" category showing on each.
I have a unit designation for David Leaming, which I thought I'd found among the categories: 8th Connecticut Provincial Regiment (1775). Yet, I have a "needs review" category show up. The same thing is happening with the sticker for Judah Leaming.
What am I doing wrong here? I would really like to be able, just once, to apply one of these military stickers and not have to ask for help!
