Re: Phebe JADWIN b. 1815, Troy NY m. Titus PERRY
The John Jadwin mentioned below may have been father to your Phebe.
John Jadwin appears on Company Muster Roll as a private in Captain Seth Perry's Company, 10th Regiment, New York Detached Militia, for August 24 to October 24, 1812, engaged for six months, commanded by Lt. Col. John Prior.
On Oct. 12, 1812, he enlisted in Captain Rueben King's Company of Militia Artillery, and he appears on Captain Rueben King's Muster Roll for September 10, 1812 to January 6, 1813. Later, in return for this service, he was awarded a land grant that he disposed of.
A declaration dated Nov. 11, 1850, mentioned in Howard Jadwin's book, states that he volunteered at Northumberland, Saratoga Co., NY on/about June 18, 1812. (Saratoga County is east of Albany, NY.)Also that he enlisted at Sacket's Harbour, Jefferson, Co., NY. Honorably discharged Dec. 18, 1812. (Sacket's Harbor is on Lake Ontario, near the Canadian Border. He is a long way from New York City).
Source: "Jadwin", Howard Jadwin, p. 175
He is enumerated in Censuses of 1820-50 as farmer, Columbia County, NY, Town of New Lebanon. (Columbia County is SE of Albany, NY. His brother Charles lives in the same county.) We can track a son, born about 1825, who may be Aloure Jadwin, age 28, finally named in the Census of 1850. Aloure Jadwin and a Martha Jadwin, age 30, also listed in this census, may be the parents of two small children in the John "Jadion" household who appear too young to be John's and wife's offspring.(Regarding the family name, he is also listed as Jadwin and Jadwell in various Censuses).
