Musgrave, SIR THOMAS, military officer; born in 1738; was captain in the British army in 1759; came to America with General Howe in 1776; and in the battle of GERMANTOWN saved the day for his King by throwing himself, with five companies, into Chew's strong stone house, and holding the American forces at bay until the repulsed British columns could rally. He became major-general in 1790, and general in 1802. He died December 31, 1812.
