`````````````````````````````````````````````````` "The first tax list of Rostraver Twp, Bedford County, PA in 1772 lists William and his three brothers, Benjamin, Thomas & Daniel. William was listed as a Ranger on the Frontier in the Continental Line, 1778-1783, and served in Hugh Goudy's company. In 1783, the Westmoreland County, return transcript of property, lists William as possessing 300 acres of land, 3 horses, 5 head of cattle, 8 sheep, and 11 white inhabitants.
He received a patent of land formerly owned by James Dean. This tract was surveyed on September 16, 1790 and was patented to William Applegate on June 23, 1794, which was called, "Apple Orchard". In 1791, he was taxed in Elizabeth Twp, Allegheny County. On Apr 15, 1801, William and his wife, Sarah, now living in North Beaver Twp, Allegheny County, transferred this property to sons, Isaiah, William and Robert. If he moved to Indiana, it is probable that it occurred after this property transfer. The 1830 Census of Indiana lists William Applegate, Sr". (New Jersey Settlement papers)
"Edward Evans wife, Jemima Applegate, died January 7, 1844. Her father, William Applegate, Sr, emigrated from New Jersey to Pennsylvania, and from there to Corydon, Indiana, where he died at the ripe old age of 105 years! When 100 years old, he walked into the woods with his rifle, and without glasses, shot a squirrel in a tree.
The descendants of Edward Evans were once numerous in Brown County, but are now scattered in many States of the Union. A great-grandson is one of the editors of this work."
