Yes. Joseph Gilbert 1731-1776 was a soldier in the American Revolution. He served in the 18th Regiment of Militia for CT and served under Abel Brace. Church records of East and West Hartland list all participants in the town of Hartland. Joseph is listed on pg 390. Records of this regiment indicate they marched from Hartland to the Battle of Long Island, were held in reserve and then marched back to Hartland. Joseph died about 3 weeks later, probably the victim of smallpox (but I cannot prove that).
