According to "New York in the Revolution", pages 230 and 231, section on the Commissioners of Conspiraciew, John Lobdell is listed as a suspected person:

"In 1781 and 1782, Col. Marinus Willet sold, or converted to use of the State, considerable property on the frontiers belonging to inhabitants who had been removed "on account of their Attatchments to the Enemy." Col Willet also took Provisions from such inhabitants, and delivered them to James Pratt. A strict accounting was made by Col Willet, under the law of April 22, 1785.

"These names appear in the documents:" ...John Lobdell

John Lobdell is also listed on page 240 on a list of British Prisoners of War that were sent from New York to prisons in other states.

Can anyone tell me anything more about this man or hiw family?
