Our first piece
of evidence shows that John Partridge Bull enlisted in the military
at age seventeen, he served under a Lieutenant Seth Pomeroy (1706
- 1777). Bull's name is found, along with 28 other names, as part
of a group who "went
to Deerfield August 1748." This would probably have
been his first opportunity to enlist.
