A U.S. Pensioners record exists for Ebenezer Smith and his widow Catharine Smith. The pension office is located in Albany, New York, and lists entries for the years 1936-1848. The record shows that Ebenezer had the rank of private, and Catherine was owed a half-yearly stipend of $15. If it applies, it implies that Ebenezer joined the military when he was 17 or so, and stayed for 12 years. No date of death is is shown on the record.
