GENEALOGY:

There is next to nothing known about this man. He may be the William Davis of Rombout that married Emily Crannel of Oswego (a hamlet of Lagrangeville), February 14th, 1779 at the Reformed Church in New Hackensack and/or the one who married Phebe Scott of Poughkeepsie June 21st, 1782 in the same location. His name does not appear in the History of the Reformed Church at Rhinebeck Flatts or in Historic Old Rhinebeck. He died June 13th, 1786.

In the early 1920’s the Chancellor Livingston Chapter, NSDAR reported that William was wounded at Verplank Point and served “three times” under Col. Levi Pawling. The application for his replacement Veteran’s Administration marker, which gives quite a confusing picture, is on page 31.
