[AmRevolution] Which state?

This 1780 is reportably one of the few contemporary drawings of the AMerican Revolutionary War Soldiers-left to right; 1st Rhode Island Regiment; 3rd from left at Rifleman; far right-an artilleryman.
Question-what state would the soldier from 2nd to left have belonged to?
His Uniform coat is Brown.
His lapels,cuffs, and coveralls are red.
His waistcoat is white.
Could this be a "French Uniform Coat" of 1779?
In one version of this drawing this soldier is from "Massachusetts". Did soldiers from the "Old Bay State" ever wear this type of Uniform?
