Success. William Musgrave.

I went to Kew today and was looking through muster rolls for the 63rd foot from 1803 backwards as I thought that was when William Musgrave left the Army according to the National Archives website but I think he had to appear before an official concerning his discharge.

The muster rolls for the 63rd start in 1771 and list William Musgrave as a Private until 1775, corporal until 1780 then discharged 14 April 1785. And he was in America from 1775 to 1782 as the six monthly muster rolls list the regiment in Boston, Brunswick, State Island then Charlestown in Carolina and list William as a corporal later sergeant.

So I can confirm I have another direct rellie who was in the US.
