The Wayne County Historian has a letter from John telling of his fathers
being wounded in the attack of the English on Sodus Point. His father was shot in the chest. Two weeks later he appeared to be recovering well when he cought cold and died. He must have been a hearty man because his age at the time was 68. Later data from Steve Terry supports data. The marriage is also ref in Chapin p15 #188.8.131.52.4.
Was in the Rev with his father. Didn't stray far from home.

MSW, Family Bible, NJ records show a William Jennings was a NJ Line soldier in Rev War from Warren, NJ. Enlisted in Wantage, NJ and lived there until about 1832 removing to Murray Twp. Orleans Co NY. Shows on the 1830NJ census in Wantage Twp. Pet for Rev War Pension 23Aug1832 Orleans Co. NY. Wm. bought a large tract of land in the Orleans County in "100,000 acre Connecticut Tract" in deeds (1832) as a partner of bro. Evi 5/89,91,245; 19/422-3 and partner Jacob Cornell, a cousin. Will at 2/38, final 1/9 box 17-527 at Albion, Orleans County, NY. Deed in 1847 (27/450) listed the children as shown.
MSW Bible. William's service and life in Wantage and the proliferation of DeWitts there suggest she was born there. The fact that she named the second child "Moses" suggests that her father was named that! A Moses DeWitt of Wantage was a war hero in the Rev. Was he her uncle?
Moved from CT. to Cambridge, NY. prior to 1790, then to Westmorland prior to 4Feb1803 when son Orton was born there. He was one of the earliest settlers there. First nine children were b. Cambridge. It appears that Lawton Barker moved west from Washington Co. at the same time. Jacob moved to Choconut, PA. where his in-laws had moved. Then moved on to Hornby (later Painted Post)
Stuben Co. New York where he died. He was a gunsmith who supplied the arms for the company his sons served in the War of 1812. Goodsell 35:25. See 1790NY
Data from Warner files and Goosell Gen. p35-6. #25
Cushman vi. 164 and Barker p30 are wrong. She was a Baptist as Lawton was disowned by Quakers for marrying out of unity. Rem. to Bartlett Oneida Co. NY about 1803. He shows 1810NY027 and rem to Homer in 1837 and shows 1840NY128, and NY 1855. Buried Glenwood Cem. Homer, Cortland, NY. He first went to Cambridge, NY in Aug 1793 per Cert of Rem Rhode Is MM to Saratoga MM so he was in White Creek when Hannah arrived in 1794! (B155) Lawton's will at Cortland Co. NY Will Book D p559 names all children as shown. Hannah is named as the will was drawn 28 Aug 1847 well before she died.
Shown as "Marcy" Cushman in Dartmouth MA. See TAG for Article. Barker Gen p30, Cushman #VI.164 are patently incorrect. We find she was a Baptist. Marriage was at White Creek NY in Sept 1794 as Quaker Lawton was disowned Oct '94 for the relationship "with one not in unity." Bristol Co records show no birth for Hannah and no estate for Ebenezer. Glenwood Cem, Homer NY shows Hannah died "ae 84y 1mo" confirms B p30. We believe Hannah was the last child listed as "Marcy" who married "---- Barker" in the H.W. Cushman entry on Ebenzer and Zervia.
