Breaking into song one night around the campfire, the true identity of Chauncey was identified.
Chauncey, a.k.a Sarah English, had joined the Rangers disguised as a man. Now identified as a women,
the Rangers were still unanimous in their decision to let her remain a Ranger. "Hell, she works twice as
hard as any man in the brigade", proclaimed lieutenant Barrett.
Chauncey was also one of the few survivors of the St Francis raid. The Abenaki, later learning of
her true identity, released a white prisoner - instructed him to deliver a turkey feather to
Chauncey. The feather was to honor her courage during the raid.
She was accused of being a Tory spy during the Revolution, and strong evidence suggests she was,
but there was never enough evidence to convict her. Most thought the constable hadn't the stomach to
hang a women, or a former Ranger.
Always never able to sit still, she headed west shortly after the Revolution. Although there is no record
of what happened to her, most claim she died of stab wounds from a fight she initiated at a rendezvous with
three drunk trappers.
