  • Notes 
    • "Jesse was not yet 17 when the Revolutionary War began, and he enlisted on July 7, 1775, with his brother David. Jesse served until December 16th in Captain Pease's 3rd Company in Colonel Hunton's Connecticut Regiment. The Pease family were prominent members of Somers. In 1776, with his brother Sanford, Jesse enlisted again with Captain Pease in Colonel Erastus Wolcott's Connecticut Regiment and served nine months, being discharged on January 1, 1777. He enlisted again in 1778 and served one year in Captain Haws' Company in Colonel Mason's Connecticut Regiment. At the end of that last tour of duty, when he was 20, he married 19 year-old Anna Jones on November 12, 1778 in Somers, at the Congregational Church." [John Thomas Bullock, citation details below]

      A letter from A. D. Miller of the War Department pension office to Mrs. P. Nugent, 18 Feb 1932, viewable at fold.com, substantiates nearly all of the above, and adds that "He was allowed pension on his application executed March 7,m 1833 in Monroe Township, Mukingum County, Ohio, in which state he had resided fifteen years, aged seventy-four years."
