  • Notes 
    • From his wife's pension application of 20 Apr 1848 (citation details below):

      John Bailey was a private in the Levies or Militia of the State of New York, and served as such against the enemy in the War of the Revolution. [...]

      John Bailey entered the service of his country as such private near Sugar Loaf in the County of Orange and State of New York where she and her said husband then resided and continuedto reside until after the close of said war. [...]

      [H]e entered said service about the fall of the year seventeen hundred and seventy seven as near as she can recollect. That he served from that time, pretty much 'till the end ofthe war. He came home several different times during the war armed and equipped as a soldier professing to have come from service in the army and after getting wood & the like and making provision for his family would leave home armed and equipped as a soldier stating that he was going again to join the army, and when at home his neighbours would converse with him of the service he had been in, in the army, and where he was gone out as a soldier such neighbours would converse with her as to her said husband's being in the army, and she thinks she has heard him and his neighbours say that he was in the battle at White Plains, Fort Montgomery & Stony Point, the two last places being in the same county in which she then resided as aforesaid.

      That he was in other battles, but from her great age cannot name -- her said neighbours during the war, which she now remembers were James Parshall, Jason Horton, John Wood, James Wells, Samuel Wells, George Howell, John Howell, Oliver Bailey, brother of her said husband but believes they are all dead. She remembers to have heard her said husband speak during the time he was a soldieras aforesaid as well as his neighbours of his officers and she remembers the names of Captains Horton, Honeywell, Hunt, Schultze, Colonels Hammond and Brinkerhoof as some of his officers.
