Looking for information on the Moses - John segment of the following Applegate line:
Thomas, Thomas, Joseph, Moses (5D2 in Voress’ Applegate History) and his son John Applegate (5D2B in Voress’s work), father of James Harvey Applegate (5D2B5).I have a great deal of my line from James Harvey on down, but there appears to be very little on Moses or John.I’m not certain that Voress has it correct when he states that the John he shows as Moses’ son (5D2) is in fact the correct John.He states that this John served in the Revolutionary War in the 3rd. Pennsylvania Regiment.He also states that this John’s second wife was Abigail (?) and that they are buried in Kirkland (sic) (should be Kirklin) Cemetery, Clinton Co., Indiana.
Howard G. Applegate’s “Applegates In The Revolutionary War” shows that John (5F5),, the son of Daniel and grandson of Benjamin, served in the Revolutionary War in the 3rd Pennsylvania Regiment.If he did, were there two John Applegates that served in the 3rd Pennsylvania Regiment, and who is buried in Kirklin Cemetery, the son of Moses (5D2) or the son of Daniel (5F5).I don’t know when James Harvey’s father died, or where he is buried, but a later bio indicates that James Harvey may have been orphaned in Ohio at age 9.His headmarker indicates by his age and date of death that he was born June 14, 1801.This would mean he was nine years old in 1810/11.Voress indicates that the John he shows as James Harvey’s father died of consumption in Fayette County, Ohio, in 1804.How either of these John’s could be buried in Kirklin, Indiana, I don’t know, but perhaps Abigail had his body moved there so they could be buried together?
Any additional hard facts or creative hypotheses anyone can provide regarding Moses Applegate, born about 1717 to 1719 in Nutswamp, Middlesex County, New Jersey, and who died in the same county c. 1783, and/or either of the Johns - Daniel’s son or Mose’s son, both of whom apparently lived in Pennsylvania from the 1770’s to about 1800, would be very appreciated.
