IMPORTANT: burial in this cemetery is presumed, not proven.
Simeon Pendleton (son of Col. Joseph Jr., grandson of Joseph Sr.) was born about 1733 at Westerly, RI., and died there in October 1819. Simeon Pendleton was a farmer and lived at Westerly nearly all his life. The Westerly Tax List of 1757, shows that he was assessed two shillings there in that year. On the 24th of February, 1766, the Town Council gave him and his family a certificate of residence to the Selectmen of Stonington, Conn., but it is unlikely that Simeon remained there long, as all his children are recorded at Westerly, and no reference appears stating that any of them were born elsewhere. He was in all probability, the Simeon Pendleton who served as private in Capt. Joseph Pendleton's Co., Westerly militia, in 1776, and was appointed Ensign of the 1st Westerly Co., 1st Regt. King's County Militia, in 1777, and 1778, as the other Simeon Pendleton, who also lived at Westerly, in those years. {That} Simeon would more likely be the one who was enrolled in the 3rd Westerly Co., in which were also enlisted a brother, and other near relatives of that Simeon Pendleton, was one of the executors of the will of his father in law, Walter Palmer, of Stonington (dated 5 October, 1785, proved 3 January, 1786) and received there from the house at Westerly, that Palmer bought of Simeon's mother. His own will, dated at Westerly, 12 October, 1819, proved 25 October, 1819 (C. & P. Rec. Vol. 2, p.331) names daughters: Mercy, wife of Joseph Lawton; Bathsheba Babcock; Sally, wife of David Pendleton; Lucretia, wife of Lebbeus Pendleton; and son, Ethan Pendleton. Simeon married at Westerly, RI. 15 January, 1760 (10 January in Stonington Ch. Rec.), Mary Palmer, daughter of Walter and Mercy Hinckley-Palmer. She was baptized at Stonington 21 March, 1742 (Westerly Rec. and "Palmer Groups", p.162).
