- He and his family were not, according to Newman, related to the Puritan leader in England. His parents were Quaker, but he married a woman from an Episcopalian family.
According to Welsh, "D.A.R. Lineage books vols. 18 and 40 give: ‘Oliver Cromwell, b. 8. 15. 1708, d. 6.24.1786, mem. Com. of Obs., Baltimore, 1775; recruited troops and joined the Flying Camp and was in the battles of White Plains and Trenton; m. Anna Maria GIles."
Newman says that "he assisted in recruiting for the Revolutionary Army" (citing DAR Lineage book, vol. 40.264).
This couple had 8 children. [2, 3]

This page collects the people on this site who served in the Revolutionary War. Some are militia; some served in the Line troops. It includes both loyalists and patriots. There may well be others on the tree who should be included. Some could use more secure evidence: genealogical histories often say that someone "fought in the Revolution," but this can be family legend rather than fact.
Sources are cited under each person's page. War and Pension records can be found on line at the National Archives. Genealogies can be ordered from the DAR and the SAR, but their lists only include those whom people have used to join, not all veterans.
