Flowers left for Joseph DeWolf
My fifth great grandfather, though his daughter Adaline"JOSEPH DE WOLF" of Granby, the grandson of Matthew of Bolton, "son of Peter and Sarah (Couch), was born in Granby, Conn., Aug 25, 1761. At fourteen years of age he enlisted in the Revolutionary forces.. Tradition has it that his mother followed him to camp with a switch, but finding herself unequal to the task secured the services of his uncle to give the young patroit a switching. However this may be, it is certain that the castigation ( if he got one) did not cool his patriotic ardor, for he served throughout the struggle, by virtue of which service, in 1832, he was granted a pension of eighty-three dollars per annum during his natural life. 'A Revolutionary Soldier,' is the honorable inscription on his tombstone in the old cemetery at Vernon, Ohio.
