He was shown as Elijah Boston, soldier in the Virginia Line in the Continental Establishment in the Rev. War and died intestate before 29 Apr 1833. Unlike his cousins, Elijah Boston (42) enlisted in the 9th Virginia Regiment (organized 1775), which late in the autumn of 1776 marched north to join the Continental Army at Morristown, New Jersey, headquarters of General Washington, commander-in-chief. The 9th Virginia Regiment, under Lt. Col. George Matthews, was combined with 4 others from Virginia in a brigade under General Muhlenberg, part of the division under Major-General Nathaniel Greene. Green's division participated 11 Sept 1777 in the battle of Brandywine, which failed to prevent Howe from entering Philadelphia, but in Washington's forced retreat Greene's division protected the army with continuous rear-guard action; the Virginia 9th is referred to with praise in published accounts. On 4 Oct 1777, at the battle of Germantown, in General Washington's unsuccessful surprise attack on Howe, the 9th Virginia Regiment under Colonel Matthews fought with distinction: the troops broke the right wing of the enemy force and took many prisoners, but they advanced too far, and were surrounded and eventually forced to yield, after heavy casualties in killed and wounded; they were the only American prisoners taken in this battle (see Dr. Susie M. Ames, "The Revolutionary Era," in Clarke, I:161). Also see the Historical Register of Virginians in the Revolution, Richmond, VA, 1938..3,4,5

John Floyd of Virginia certified that Elijah Boston is allowed "L.B." for his services as a soldier in the Contl. line for the war. On 18 May 1833 the Accomack County Court ordered the Register of the Virginia Land Office to deliver to P.P. Mayo (attorney) Military warrents due for services of Elijah Boston (Virginia Soldiers of 1776, ed. Louis A. Burgess, Baltimore, 1973, II:582-583).8
