      I'm wondering if the entry "omitted" in the registers of the Revolution have any further meaning. I've traced the career of my ancestor in the 3rd NJ Regiment from Feb 1776 to early 1779 through muster and pay rolls. His company was taken over by a Major in March 1779 and in the List of NJ Troops he is "Omitted Jan or Feb 79". Supposedly he retired in 1780 but I've never found a discharge.
      There are a number of other men listed as "omitted."
