John Paulding captured British spy John André, on a mission to assist Benedict Arnold in securing the surrender of West Point. Having met with Arnold, André tried to return through enemy lines, but he was stopped by three alert militiamen, John Paulding, Isaac Van Wart and David Williams near present day Tarrytown, New York. After being found guilty of spying, André was hung. The original county seat of Paulding was Van Wert [sic].
