One Cornet served in each troop. Some had regimental functions similar to the lieutenants. 
This rank is similar although not the same as ensign in the infantry as dragoon
cornets were armed junior officers. Some Cornets advanced to Lieutenant and higher. 
Several 4th Dragoon Cornets were promoted to lieutenant, captain and command of a troop.

JAMES ANDERSON was born in Chester Co., Pa., in 1750. He served as a Private in Capt. John Lacey's Company, 4th Penna Infantry, commanded by Col. Anthony Wayne. This regiment entered service in 1776, and. took part in the battles at Long Island and Ticonderoga. He next enlisted in Col. Stephen Moylan's Regiment of Pennsylvania Cavalry, and was commissioned Lieutenant. He was captured by the British, and exchanged in December, 1780. (Family Rec. Pa. Archives, 2d Series, Vol. to, pp. 126 and 238; Vol. 238; Vol. p. 128.) Jacob Bamper, Cornet Information provided by Annette Bamper howlofthewild@angelfire.com He was born either in 1756-57, most likely in Bergen County, New Jersey. He was baptized in the Dutch RC of Paramus as well as several of his siblings. Revolutionary War Record; 2d Lt, 2d NY, 21 Nov 1776. Resigned 21 July 1777. He was married in Jan 1778 in Clarkstown NY, which may explain the break in his service. Cornet 4th Dragoons 12 Aug 1778. Regimental Quartermaster Sept 1778. Omitted May 1779. He had applied for pension from NJ in 1818 and was dropped under the act of May 1, 1820. He died Jan 12,1825. He is buried in the Methodist Cemetery HoHoKus, NJ.

The Bowen brothers, Cornet Jehu and Sgt Sabrett, were fighting Quakers.  Their mother, Mary Sollers Bowen, cut off these sons in her will with "one English Shilling apiece" for having taken up arms in the Revolution.

The Pennsylvania Line

The following information about 4th Dragoon Troop Commanders is from The Pennsylvania Line Regimental Organization and Operations, 1776-1783 By John B. B. Trussell, Jr. Illustrated By Charles C. Dallas. Jr. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission Harrisburg 1977 Troop A, commanded by Capt. Moore Fauntleroy. After serving in 1776 as an ensign and second lieutenant in the 5th Virginia (infantry) Regiment, he was appointed a captain in the 4th Continental Light Dragoons on January 21, 1777. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Germantown, on October 4, 1777. The date of his escape or exchange is not known; but as noted above, he was promoted to major on August 1, 1779. 12 Records do not indicate the promotion or appointment of any officer to fill the captaincy he vacated. The regiment's first appointment to captain after Fauntleroy's promotion was that of Larkin Smith, but that did not take place until April 1, 1780, eight months later. Smith, still another Virginian, had been commissioned a cornet in the 4th Dragoons on August 1, 1777, promoted to lieutenant on September 4, 1778, and after becoming a captain continued with the regiment as long as it remained in existence. Troop B, commanded by Capt. David Hopkins, of Virginia. He had been a volunteer with Benedict Arnold's Quebec expedition in 1775, and was appointed a captain in the 4th Continental Dragoons on January 21, 1777. At an unknown date in 1780, he was promoted to major of the 1st Continental Dragoons. It is possible that his replacement was Capt. Henry Willis, of Pennsylvania, concerning whom the records are contradictory. He was appointed a cornet in the 4th Dragoons in June, 1777, and according to one version, 15 was promoted to second lieutenant on June 25, 1781, and to captain on an unspecified subsequent date, serving to the end of the war. Another version, 16 however, says that he was promoted to captain on December 22, 1780, and resigned his commission on April 24, 1781, at which time he was replaced by Capt. Thomas Overton*, a Virginian, who had been a lieutenant in the 9th Virginia (infantry) Regiment until July 1, 1779, when he had been appointed a first lieutenant in the 4th Dragoons. He served with the 4th Dragoons through the rest of the war. * Found name spelled Oberton in Penna Archives. There were Two Overtons, John and Thomas, brothers or cousins? Both served in Virginia Regiments. Only Thomas served in the 4th Dragoons. (see Heitman's) Troop C, commanded by Capt. Thomas Dorsey, of Pennsylvania. He began his service as a captain of infantry, initially in the 1st Pennsylvania Battalion and then in its successor unit, the 2d Pennsylvania Regiment. He became a captain in the 4th Dragoons on January 10, 1777. but is listed as "omitted" in August of the same year. No promotion occurred which can be associated With the departure from the service (due the mutiny) of Capt. Dorsey. The first such promotion after he left the regiment, which took place on February 8, 1778, was that of John Heard, of New Jersey. After having been a second lieutenant of New Jersey artillery in 1776, Heard had become a first lieutenant of the 4th Dragoons on January 20, 1777. He served as a captain in that regiment from the date of his promotion to the end of the war. Troop D, commanded by Capt. David Plunkett, of Maryland. His prior service had been as a second lieutenant in Smallwood's Maryland Regiment. Appointed a captain in the 4th Continental Light Dragoons on January 10, 1777, he was taken prisoner on October 20 of that year (location and circumstances unknown, although possibly in conjunction with the defense of Fort Mercer, near Red Bank, New Jersey), and resigned from the army on March 13, 1779. Possibly to fill this vacancy, Peter Manifold was promoted to captain from first lieutenant on April 14, 1779. One of the comparatively few Pennsylvania officers, he had originally joined the regiment as a cornet, on April 14, 1778, being promoted barely two weeks later (on May 1) to lieutenant. He resigned on Oct 30, 1780. Apparently the vacancies remained unfilled for some time. Troop E, commanded by Capt. Vashel D. Howard, of Virginia. He was commissioned a captain in the 4th Dragoons on January 24, 1777, but died on March 15, 1778. 22 There was no promotion to captain in the regiment from that time until December 22, 1778, when John Craig, a Pennsylvanian, was promoted from first lieutenant. He had been a second lieutenant in the 2d Pennsylvania (infantry Battalion and a first lieutenant in the 3d Pennsylvania (infantry) Regiment before transferring to the 4th Dragoons on March 22, 1977. He stayed with the organization to the end of the war. Troop F, ? CHARLES CRAIG of Pennsylvania, was commissioned a Captain and Troop Commander of the 4th LD on Jan 10, 1777. He was wounded at Brandywine Sept 11, 1777 and did not return to service. (Capt Charles Craig in not cited in The Pennsylvania Line). His prior service dated from 1775 as a 1stLt, of Thompson's Penna Rifle Regt, June 25, 1775; to Captain, Nov 9, 1775; then he began his Continental Service as a Captain of 1st Continental Line Jan 1, to Dec 31, 1776. Other officers who at one time or another served as captains in the 4th Continental Light Dragoons were: Capt. Zebulon Pike,* of New Jersey. Appointed a cornet in the 4th Dragoons on March 1, 1777, he became the regimental adjutant on November 20, 1777, was promoted lieutenant on March 15, 1778, and captain on December 25, 1778. On June 1, 1780, he was appointed regimental paymaster, holding that position until the end of the war. 74 Capt. Erasmus Gill, of Virginia. He was appointed a captain in the 4th Dragoons in Feb, 1779, but with a retroactive date of rank of December 25, 1778. He had prior service as a sergeant, ensign, and second lieutenant in the 2d Virginia (infantry) Regiment. On October 3, 1779, he was taken prisoner at Savannah, Georgia, and after his exchange (on October 22, 1788, served to the end of the war. 25 Capt. Lawrence Frank, of Pennsylvania. Having been commissioned a first lieutenant, 4th Continental Light Dragoons on October 1, 1779, he was promoted to captain some time in 1782 and served in that grade throughout what remained of the war. 26

Captain Larkin Smith

This is the entry for Larkin Smith in the 1917 edition of Heitman's Register, as he was not listed in the original edition.

 
This is Capt Smith's Virginia Pension information from Southern Campaign American Revolution Pension Statements

This intelligence note to Gen. Sterling from Cornet Smith was found in the GW Papers.

The narrative of Francis Brooke from the book SOME PROMINENT VIRGINIA FAMILIES, CHAPTER XI, pp343 to 351, cites Capt. Larkin Smith as being in action in the Richmond, Virginia area in January of 1781. He is also cited as being present at the battle at Green Spring farm, in July of 1781. From this account, it is not possible to identify which brigade Larkin Smith was attached to, that of Gen Lafayette or Gen Anthony Wayne's brigade. These brigades joined forces at Green Spring. This account was written well after the Revolutionary War. So, many side issues are inserted into the narrative. The participants in the battle of Green Spring are cited and the action at Burnt Ordinary is noted. The action at Spencer's Ordinary, which occurred in the same time frame, is not noted. This narrative provides an excellent description of the war in the South.
