SCHUYLERVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - Members of one family whose ancestors owned a New York home damaged during a Revolutionary War battle are gathering at the upstate property for a reunion.

More than 40 members of the Marshall family are attending the reunion this weekend at the Marshall House in the village of Schuylerville, on the Hudson River 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Albany.

The home was built in 1770 by a friend of Philip Schuyler, Alexander Hamilton’s future father-in-law. The property was sold to another family after the American Revolution, and the Marshall family purchased the home in 1817. The Bullard family bought it in 1930.

During the Battles of Saratoga in 1777, the house was hit by several American cannonballs while wounded British redcoats and German mercenaries were being treated inside.
