the 6th Company, 4th Regt., January, 1778, Col. Whit-
ing's Regt., 4th Militia, Lieut. -Col. Jonathan Dimon,
and served at Peekskill, 1777. Captain Stephen Wake-
man, who served before and during the Revolution,
lived in Greensfarms in an old house back of where Mr.

Fairchild now lives. He sold this place in March,
1789. In the deed he is mentioned as of Balston, N.Y.,
where he had been to found a new home, from which
trip he returned to Greensfarms with his daughter
Mary on horseback, and received the money for his old
home. Before leaving Greensfarms he called on Sarah
Whitehead, who was engaged to his son Stephen (she
m. him June 29, 1789), and expressed the pleasure
they felt that she would soon join them in their new
home. His daughter Mary preferred to return by boat
on the Hudson, so he started to go on horseback, and
stopped at Squire Adam's inn in Weston. Miss Grace
Cable was staying there at the time, and has told her
descendants her recollections of it: that Asa Belden,
of Wilton, was also there that day, and after a pleasant
stay Capt. Wakeman started to go, but was urged to
remain over night. He said no, that he wanted to join
Short Molly that night; so he went out and saddled his
horse and started. Asa Belden went out immediately
after, and Mr. Wakeman was never seen again. As he
did not return to his home at Burnt Hills, near Balston
Spa, his wife went to Connecticut on horseback to find
him, taking her son Stephen with her. At Albany they
consulted a clairvoyant, who told them that Capt.
Wakeman had purchased a couple of speckled handed
jackknives for his boys. She gave them a few more
statements and asked them to come again, but that they
must keep it in confidence. They found the purchase
of the jackknives was true, but did not keep quiet; so
when they returned she refused to tell any more. An-
other account says that Belden overtook him, or way-
laid him with an axe that he was cutting wood with,
and when Capt Wakeman spoke of the fine springs at
Balston, replied that he had one that was fine, and
wanted Capt. Wakeman to drink of it, and while he was
drinking, Belden killed him and threw his body in an

old well and filled it up (some say it was an old mine).
It was also said years after that Belden was trying to
cheat his sister, Mrs. Hull, of Redding, out of her pat-
rimony, and in her anger she accused him of murdering
Capt. Wakeman, and said she washed his bloody shirt.
He was arrested, and she gave evidence against him in
court. Then he settled with her, and she signed a
libel, and asserted that her statements were made in
anger and wholly false; so nothing could be done.
Some time after this Belden was taken sick, and wanted
to have Mrs. Wakeman sent for, but his family would
not consent, as they said that he was crazy. He seemed
to be in great distress of mind, and the doctor said that
it was some secret that he wished to reveal, and that
he should have a chance to do so. He said that he
could not die in peace until he had confessed it to the
doctor, whom he told about killing Capt. Wakeman,
and putting the body in a well and filling it up. After
Belden was dead, the doctor had the well dug out to
satisfy himself of the truth of the story, and found the
bones there, but none of the money was recovered.
Moses Jennings was hired to care for Belden during his
illness, and was put under bonds not to reveal anything
Belden might say. Belden died in 1828 or 1829.

Capt. Wakeman stopped at his sister's, Mrs. Benja-
min Banks, of Greenfield, and started from there on his
return trip to Balston Spa. Mrs. Craft says that w T hen
she was in Wilton she learned for a fact that Belden
buried the body of Capt. Wakeman under that part of
his house where there was no cellar, and it is said that
Belden 's bed stood over this place.

It is said that when Asa Belden was ill he had a
young man who was a neighbor of his write a letter for
him to Benjamin Banks or his wife, and that in this
letter Belden made confession of the murder of Capt.
Stephen Wakeman, and that the body would be found
under a certain heap of stones.



WAKEMAN GENEALOGY. 203

This young man is also said to have written or told
Mr. Banks that he had better put an attachment on Mr.
Belden's place. It is also said that some of the Belden
family got wind of this letter, and went to Mr. Banks,
who was old, and got possession of the letter.

The papers that disappeared with Capt. Wakeman
caused his family much trouble, as some were receipts
for money that had to be paid again. Capt. Wakeman
deeded, April 20, 1789, land in Weston to his wife
Mary. This land came from her father. She sold it in
1 791 to John and Samuel Lord.

5 J. Jeremiah Wakeman, 6 of New Fairfield, Conn,
served in the Revolution as private in Capt. Hickox's
Co., Third Regt., Conn. Light Horse, under Major
Starr. He enlisted at Danbury, Aug. 20, 1780, and
was discharged Jan. 1, 1781. His regiment was one of
the four organized in May, 1776, from the twenty-four
troops of Light Horse then in existence. When his
father, David Wakeman, returned home from the war
he was too fatigued to help his son gather the crops, and
when Jeremiah wanted to enlist, his father would not
consent that he should go in the militia on account of
the great hardships, but when there was a call for
mounted men, Jeremiah was allowed to go and join the
troops, and served much longer than his father. He m.
