Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Is this John Palmerton (b. 3 Mar 1756 in Danby, Rutland County, VT; d. 31 Jul 1826 in Saratoga County, NY)?

Was his wfe Elizabeth Wilbor (b. 13 May 1759 in Little Compton, Newport County, RI; d. 1853 in Collins, Erie County, NY), married 4 Dec 1776 in Clarindon, Rutland County, VT.? She may have been a Quaker.

Possible children: Thankful (b.abt 1779, m. Seth Potter), Elizabeth (b.abt 1781, m. Benjamin Moshier), John (b.abt 1783), Joshua (shown), Deborah (b.abt 1787, m. Tertulus Akins), Sarah (shown, b.abt 1790), Henry W. (shown, b.abt 1793, m. Rachel Albee), William Mather (shown, b.abt 1796), and Edward (b.abt 1800).

There is a 1800 U.S. Census record for John Palmerton in Washington, Dutchess County, NY. It records one boy under 10, one boy 10-15, one man over 45, one girl under 10, one girl 10-15, and one woman 26-44. This fits the children above, if Thankful, Elizabeth, and John were out of the house in 1800, William died young, and Edward hadn't been born at the time of the census.

A secondary source indicates that he had two brothers, Benjamin and Amaziah, who also served in the American Revolution. Amaziah died of wounds suffered in the Battle of Stillwater. John received a pension (W19964) for his service, and took part in the battles of Montreal, Three Rivers, and Hubbardston VT, and at the surrender of Burgoyne at Saratoga.
