Birth: May 13, 1760
Tolland County
Connecticut, USA
Death: May 10, 1836

John Hitchcock, son of John and Abigail (Chapman) Hitchcock, was born in Bolton, Conn., May 13, 1760; baptized at the first church in Bolton, Conn., July 20, 1760; he married 1st, in 1785, Hannah, daughter of Jacob Weed. She died about 1813. By her he had nine children, all of whom died in infancy. He married 2d, Oct. 1, 1814, Lucy Ripley, who was born in Pittsford, Vt., May 10, 1789. John died May 10, 1836, and his widow married, May 14, 1841, William Manly. She died in Pittsford, Vt., June 1, 1865.
John enlisted in the Revolutionary Army at the age of 16, and served three years. The family must at that time have been living in New Hampshire for at one time having a furlough from the army for a few days, he did not visit his home because it was so far, but went to see an uncle (his father's brother). His aunt had a sheep sheared, and the wool carded, spun, and woven into cloth, and a warm suit of clothes made for the soldier boy.
He was under Gen. Sullivan in several skirmishes but in no important battle. He received a pension until his death. (from The Genealogy of the Hitchcock Family, compiled by Mrs. Edward Hitchcock; pub. by Carpenter & Morehouse, Amherst, Mass., 1894)

Although all the children by his first marriage died, he and his second wife Lucy had five children, all of whom lived to adulthood: Hannah Hitchcock Smith, John R. Hitchcock, Frances Hitchcock Chatterton, Elmira Hitchcock Hall and William D. Hitchcock.
