      In 1770, Lieutenant Arnold Lewis was listed in the 3rd brigade in the Militia Company from Gloucester, RI. His superior was Capt. Thomas Bussey. Also listed was one Ensign Eseck Arnold, probably a relative of his mother and no doubt the namesake of Arnold's son Eseck Lewis.

      In 1772, a Capt. Aaron (Arnold?) Lewis is in charge of the same brigade from Gloucester, RI.

      Capt. Lewis led a company in Col. Christopher Greene's Regiment until October, 1780 when he retired from the army.
