Cruger, John Harris. 1738-1807. Loyalist officer, b. Westchester, N.Y.
Son-in-law of Oliver DeLancey; commanded loyalist battalions at Savannah, Ga., 29 December 1778, and in the defense of Savannah, 9 October 1779; provided relief at Augusta, Ga., 14-18 September 1780; commanded the Tory stonghold at Ninety-Six, S.C., May-June, 1781; highly regarded by the British.

I am not related to this person, I am just passing on this information, which comes from a book titled "People & Events of the American Revolution" by Dupuy/Hammerman. R.R. Bowker Company, 1974. pg.308.
