> ss. :
Sullivan Co. )

On the tenth day of October, one thousand eight hundred and
thirty-two, personally appeared in open Court before the Court
of Common Pleas of the said County of Sullivan now sitting,
Jabez Wakeman, a resident of the town of Fallsburgh in the
County of Sullivan and State of New York aforesaid, aged seventy
years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his
oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit
of the act of Congress passed June 7, 1S32. That he entered the
service of the United States, and served as herein stated ; that he
was born in the town of Fairfield, County of Fairfield and State of
Connecticut, on the tenth day of May, one thousand seven hun-
dred and sixty-two, as he believes and as it appears by his family
bible now at his home ; that when called into service he lived in
said town of Fairfield, and since the Revolutionary war resided
in Redding in said County of Fairfield twelve or fourteen years,
and then moved to the town of Thompson, now in the said town



WAKEMAN GENEALOGY. 237

of Fallsburgh, where he has lived ever since. That in the year
1777 he was drafted in the Militia and served three months in
Captain Ebenezer Hill's company, of which Lewis Goodsell was
Lieutenant, and in the regiment commanded by Colonel Jonathan
Dimon, and served out the said turn on the lines. In 1778 he en-
listed with Captain Eliphalet Thorp, Samuel Taylor, Lieutenant,
belonging to Colonel Webb's Regiment of Militia, and served six
months, kept guard on Sheppard's point an performed various
other duties, and served as Sergeant in said Company for six
months. In 1779 enlisted for one year as Sergeant in an Artil-
lery Company of Militia Commanded by Captain Eliphalet Thorp,
Lieutenant Samuel Sturgis and Isaac Jarvis in said Colonel
Dimon's Regiment, and served the whole time as Sergeant. At
Black Rock Fort was in the following different engagements,
viz.: When the British landed at Fairfield, at Ridgefield when
Danbury was burnt, at Cumber Hill when Greens Farms were
burnt, also when Norwalk was burnt and a number of skirmishes
on the lines. In the year 1780 served for three months under
Captain Jabez Botsford and Lieutenant Dunkins on the lines near
Horseneck. Besides the above regular service he frequently
volunteered in Colonel Sheldon's Regiment, and also on board of
whale boats commanded by Captain Brewster ; was wounded in
the wrist in the taking of Captain Hoyt, a Tory, who commanded
a British privateer, and generally lay at or near Hamburgh;
never received any written discharge, and believes that none were
given to the Militia in that quarter.

He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension or
annuity except the present, and declares that his name is not on
the pension roll of the agency of any State.

Sworn to and subscribed the day and year aforesaid.
