That's for looking.  I think I might need some more sources for this.

That can't be the right regiment for him the because he hung out in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
I realized that after posting. Unfortunately, I cannot pinpoint the regiment commanded by Jonathan Baldwin of which Benjamin Pollard commanded a company.

I think you need to create the category.  I think it was always a company and not part of any regiment.  I found this article on Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Corps_of_Cadets_(Massachusetts)

It lists other names of the unit and the year.  There was also a Pollard's Company that was in Virginia, but obviously that is the incorrect unit.  I would put the category on this page:

They disbanded in 1774 and this wasn't the regiment he was with during the war. He was with Capt. Benjamin Pollard's Company in Col Jonathan Baldwin's Regiment. The problem is I can't find which regiment was commanded by Baldwin.
I think that is one and the same, but I'll look tonight when I get home from work.

I also think I know his parentage, but I have to make sure.  Or do you already have that information?
He's like the grandparent of a grandparent of the wife of a great uncle so I'm pretty far afield from my folk but when I see revolution vets I like to add them

I don't know how many "Pollard's Companies" there were in the American Revolution, but I do know that there was a company commanded by a Captain Pollard in Moses Hazen's "Second Canadian Regiment".
