Jacob Huntley was KIA in 1762 (reported 14 Oct 1762) after enlisting with Captain Robert Durkee's Company, 1st Connecticut Regiment, six months previously.  I haven't yet tracked down where he was serving and what he was doing when he died.

Are there categories for the French and Indian War? (Wars? I've seen it both ways recently - and isn't this also called the Seven Years War?) Is there a category for soldiers who died then?

When I tried to use the Military History categorization page, it sent me in circles.  So, I'm assuming this may be a work-in-progress.

Wow!  That was quick.  Thanks, Keith!

I'll do some more research, to see whether I can figure out precisely where and when he died, before I add the KIA category.
