Benjamin Close (1760) was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, the son of Samuel Close (1724) and Deborah Mead.
He served as a private in the Connecticut Line and was severely wounded through the body and left arm in a skirmish at Eastchester, New York, while acting as advance guard to the army under Washington. He was given a tract of land in Cayuga County, New York, where he moved to in 1793.
