Dr. Joseph Bossuet

Dr. Joseph Bossuet came from Paris, France, his native city, and joined forces with the American colonists about the same time as Lafayette. He was a physician and surgeon in the Washington army, was captured by the British and suffered heavy property losses, which is supposed to have determined his decision to remain in this country and continue his practice. He practiced in Hanover and Higham, in the former town in 1799 and 1800 and possibly longer.
