    Was there more than one John Chester in the Continental Army.


      I'm trying to find out if there was more than one John Chester who was an officer in the Continental Army. Per a history book, 5th great-grandfather, John Chester, was an officer in George Washington's Army. He was born in 1750 and had a son named Charles E. Chester. I find another Officer John Chester born 1749 but records don't show that he had a son named Charles. Charles was born in Pennsylvania in 1798. I do not know the name of my relative's wife. Rumor has it that he was born in England, but it might be New England.
