  • Notes 
    • Occupation: Silversmith
      Religious Affiliation: Moravian Smith
      Probably born in Salisbury, Litchfield Co CT or on the Oblong, Dutchess Co NY. He lived in Dutchess Co and was said to be "from New York State" when he and his wife and children arrived at Beersheba, Ohio July 1809 with four of his children's families. They stayed one year and left for the Purchase Land in Wayne Co ohio July 1810.

      At the age of 75 he petitioned the War Dept for a pension for his duty during the Revolutionary War. His shop had taken fire and consumed all of his silversmith tools. He had no way of supporting himself and his wife. His pension was denied, probably because he died before it was finalized. he was suffering from rheumatism and other complaints (including Blind Piles)

      In the war, he enlisted Apr/May 1776 for nine months in Connecticut under the command of Capt Simeon. During this time he was drafted or ordered to defend Fort Washington, New York; was injured, taken prisoner for 4 or 5 months, brutally treated, stripped of his clothing, had smallpox, etc. He was clothed by Ethan & Levi Allen who visited him because of their friendship with his father, Azariah Smith. At his discharge, his father had to go bring hi home in the winter of 1777.

      Death determined by Estate Appraisal 12/1/1831. Source Family Records of Julia L Adams, Muncie IN, Marriages of Tuscarawas Co, OH p 27, Beersheba Church Book, Moravian Church, Gnadenhutten, Ohio and Revolutionary War Pension Application #R21792
