Notes for SEARGENT JACOB SMITH:
On this 9th day of November 1839 personally appeared before the Court of Sessions of the city, county & state of New York, being a court of record, Hannah Smith, a resident of said city & county of New York, now aged 73 years & nine months who, being first duly sworn according to law, doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress, passed July the 7th, 1838, entitled an act granting half pay & pensions to certain widows. That she is the widow of Jacob Smith who was employed in the years of 1777 & 1778 in the Artificers Department in making & repairing gun carriages, waggons & carts for the Army of the United States at & near Peekskill, State of New York, that in the winter of 1779 & 1780 he went into the Armed Whale Boats, under the command of Capt. Jabez Fitch, Captn. Holly, Captn. Jones & Captn. Lockwood as a private or common oarsman & remained in said boats in constant service until the peace of 1783 and was in several battles both on the water and on the land. At one time he was two days and two nights in the enemy's country, with a party of boatmen who took Judge Jones and brought him off who was exchanged for General Silliman. At one time he came in from a cruise with others & brought in a number of wounded men. Two of his brothers & a number of others beside were wounded, some of whom died of their wounds. I had an opportunity of knowing, as my uncle Ethan Smith, with whom I lived, was in these same boats with the said Jacob Smith and they were in constant service either on the water or on the land. His wife, my aunt Hannah Smith, had a pension for his service, but is since dead. The place where the boats when in port were hauled up, was within ten rods of the house in which I lived & I could see distinctly every person which went on board of them or came on shore from them. At another time they came in with a British Armed vessel which with others they had captured. The commander of the prize was wounded with some others. The captain died soon after they came on shore & Lieutenant or more properly Ensign, Andrew Mead of our boats was badly wounded and several others beside, for which wounds he received a pension. I sincerely believe the aforesaid Jacob Smith was in battle at the time the refugees took the Revd. Moses Mather & his congregation off as prisoners from a part of Stamford, now Darien, and was also in battle at the time the refugees came to Greenwich & Stamford & took prisoners & cattle in the forepart of the year 1783 & that he was in many other expeditions both on land & on water & was in constant service. The aforesaid Jacob Smith was a native of Stamford, Fairfield County, State of Connecticut. I myself was a native of New York but went to Stamford aforesaid in the year 1774 to reside with my uncle Ethan Smith, where I stayed until I married the aforesaid Jacob Smith. We were married at Stamford aforesaid by the Rev. John Avery on the 22nd day of July 1784, which was subsequent to his last term of service & previous to the 1st day of January 1794 & that we resided in Stamford until July of the year 1800, when we came to the City of New York with my family. My husband died in New York in Sept. of the year 1811 & I, with my family have resided here since & have never married again but still remain his widow.
