    A military history of Wayne County, NY includes Peter Shirts under the town of Arcadia, as follows:

    [LIND:]Peter Shirts of Claverack, Columbia County, was in the Revolutionary Army for several years. His wife's maiden name was Houser. Her father, Frederick Houser, gave to his children 640 acres of land, east of what is now Newark village, near the well-known Price gristmill. Peter Shirts settled up the share falling to his wife about 1800. It is a tradition of the family that he was a captain. He is entered, however, as a private in the list recorded at Albany of those who received land. He belonged to the second company in the first regiment of the state of New York, in the Continental Congress for three years or during the war. [:LIND]
