    Seeking records for Captain Nathaniel Torrey

    Mary O'Neil Wayfarer

      Any records for Captain Nathaniel B. Torrey (d. 1831) Georgia, Vermont? I have seen documents relative to a request for a widow's pension for Sarah Torrey.  I am trying to find maritime, trade or agricultural records for conducting business at Torrey Landing in Georgia, VT in 1798-1831. As he was a private in the War of the Revolution, why was he known as "Capt."?
