The Continental Congress appointed Enoch Poor as Brigadier General on Feb. 21, 1777. Some sources say Poor was shot in a duel near Hackensack, New Jersey, on September 6, 1780 and died two days later from his wound, although the Army surgeon reported that Poor died from typhus. Poor was buried in the First Reformed Dutch Church Cemetery in Hackensack. Both George Washington and Lafayette attended his funeral. When Washington wrote to inform Congress of General Poor's death, he noted that "He was an officer of distinguished merit, one who as a citizen and soldier had every claim to the esteem and regard of his country."
