Hasbroucks & the Revolution

The Hasbrouck name is found in the militia rosters of the Revolutionary War.

The Hasbrouck’s, along with other Huguenots, emigrated from France to gain freedom from religious persecution, only to find themselves back in the fight for freedom of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain. The Hasbroucks served in the capacity of Patriotic Service to Captain of their regiment: Benjamin Hasbrouck, Ulster County, PS NY / Jacob Hasbrouck, Ulster County, NY; Major PS NY / Elias Hasbrouck, Captain.
