A meeting was held at Ford Edward June 29, 1775, to choose three delegates to represent the County of Charlotte at the Provincial Congress convened at the city of New York. Among the "signers in Charlotte County, District of Black Creek," April— May 1775, Moses T. Munson was number eight; others were John and Nathaniel."
Henry, of Mattawan, writes: "Moses was a Tory. He endeavored to induce grandfather [John] to join the Tories but did not succeed. Moses was shot in Vermont." Mrs. Sarah Webster writes: "My great-grandfather [Moses T.] was killed when he was going to Canada,—so that his widow and three children had to make the journey alone." She writes again: "I suppose the Ruggles family took our part of the family to Canada; they were Tories."
