    • There were at least 2 William Parkers in Loyalist volunteer regiments. One was taken prisoner in 1777, and remained in the enemy hands through 1783. The other enlisted in 1780 with the 2nd Battalion. In 1781 the 2nd Battalion was drafted into the 1st Battalion of New Jersey Volunteers, and remained until the end of the war. William Parker who enlisted in 1780 is likely the same who went to New Brunswick

      2nd Battalion New Jersey Volunteers: William Parker taken prisoner 4 February 1777, counted as a prisoner through 1781
      2nd Battalion New Jersey Volunteers: William Parker enlisted 28 August 1780 - 1781
      1st Battalion New Jersey Volunteers: William Parker taken prisoner 4 February 1777, counted with the 1st Battlion 1781-1783
      1st Battalion New Jersey Volunteers: William Parker counted with the 1st Battalion from 1781-1783

      http://www.royalprovincial.com/military/rhist/njv/2njvhist.htm
      The post at Lloyd's Neck was due to be turned over to the Associated Loyalists in June of 1781. With no further need of Provincial forces there, the 2nd battalion commenced its march to Brooklyn, where they would be ferried across to Staten Island. Once there, their career as a battalion was finished, and they were drafted into the 1st and late 4th battalions, one company to the former and three to the latter.
