Moses Bardeen
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 15, 1756
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Nov. 10, 1843
New York, USA

Moses has been proven by DNA testing of his descendants to be the son of James and Mary (Sanders) Barden/s. DNA also proves this line did not descend from William Barden of Plymouth Colony.

Moses Bardins/Bardean served in the Revolutionary War from 1775 to 1779 with Massachusetts Regiments and the Continental Troops. First served for eight months under Captain David Batchelor in Colonel Ezra Wood's Massachusetts Regiment. Immediately reenlisted in Captain Seagrave's and Col. Joseph Read's regiment. Transferred to Captain Dimon Morton in Col. Henry Knox's artillery regiment - engaged in the Battle of Trenton. [Sources: NARA "Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty-Land Warrant Application File" - S12962 for Moses Bardean; AND DAR Ancestor # A017113 called Moses Burden.]

Moses Bardeen married Catherine Cook probably before their first child was born about 1783. They lived in Croyden, New Hampshire, Pittsfield, Otsego Co., New York and finally in Prattsburgh, Steuben Co., New York.

Moses 'Bardean' applied for a Revolutionary War Pension in 1833 and when approved, the money was sent to Abraham Maxfield the Post Master in Italy, Yates Co., NY. Unclear if Moses was living in Prattsburgh or Italy.

Final voucher for his pension listed his date of death as Nov. 10, 1843 in the State of New York.
Document reported final monies were paid in 1844 by the Agency listed as Albany, New York - probably the state government coffers at the NY State Capital. Final voucher did not list his residence nor the county of death.

Grave Site is Unknown
The transcription of Segar Cemetery lists several relatives and at least three stones without transcription near the marked Bardeen graves. The cemetery is on the line between Yates County and Steuben County and nearby is his last known residence, Prattsburgh. There's also a marked stone for Moses E. Bardeen, a grandson, who died Feb. 17, 1843 at age 8 yr, 2 mo, 8 da.

NOTE: In "The Barden-Bardeen Genealogy" Cornelia Rosanna (Campbell) Bardeen, wife of grandson, Americus V. Bardeen, reported Moses died about 1837 at the home of his daughter, Olive Bardeen Brooks, who lived in Sherburne, Chenango Co., NY.
