In 1776, Andrew Gerberich (Carvery) served with Colonel Timothy Green's Battalion of Hanover Rifles.  Was captured by the British at the Surrender of Fort Washington on the Hudson, 16 Nov 1776.  He, along with many others, were exchanged soon after and he returned home. 

From 1778  to 1779, he served again in the Revolutionary Army with the 6th Battalion, 3rd Company, 1st Class.
