I still think they served in America
In Response To: Here is reply from Don ()

I don't think the County Wexford Royal Militia served as a unique and unattached unit in America, but everything I have read over the last couple days says that this unit became part of the Royal Irish Militia which did serve in America. I have a lot of respect for Mr. Troiani and his knowledge, so I could be wrong, but I remain confident that this button is associated with a unit that served in America during the Revolution.

The button appears to be well made and period, but without other data and buttons to compare, it would be hard to definitively say. Also, buttons make their way all over the place for various reasons, so it is also difficult, without other information, to say that the unit was ever actually at the place where the button was found.
