Pioneers of Old Hopewell, with Sketches of Her Revolutionary Heroes_ by Ralph Ege (1963 reprint by the Hopewell (NJ) Museum of a book originally pub. in 1908), p. 122-123: "On the morning after the battle of Princeton there occurred at this [Rocky Hill] mill a skirmish with the British which, like the battle of the preceding day, resulted in a victory for the Americans. A portion of the British army was encamped at Ten Mile Run, only a short distance from the residence of the great great grandfather of the writer,*..." "*The person alluded to in this connection was Hendrick DeHart, who was with General Washington at that time and participated in the battle of Princeton the day previous. Two of his little sons, Henry and Uriah, had a narrow escape from being exposed to the fire of Morgan's riflemen that morning. They had just been to the mill at Rocky Hill and were on their way home, going up the hill on the east side of the river, when they saw the British soldiers approaching and turned aside in the woods until they had passed. "Uriah, who was the great grandfather of the writer and well remembered by him, said that although only a small boy at the time, he recollected very distinctly seeing his mother take the copper kettle and go toward the spring, which was a considerable distance from the house. He followed along and saw her sink it in the spring, after which she took the gold ring from her finger and hid it under one of the stones in the walk."
