Based on the Applegate Genealogy Web Site, Daniel got married in Fayette Co., KY in 1790. He had a 50 acre farm in Franklin Co., KY until 1797. He then was in Carroll Co.,KY in 1802.

Daniel and his family moved to Henry County, KY about 1808 as there is a record that he was fined 15 shillings and detained 3 hours in jail on February 4, 1808 for cursing in the Henry County, Kentucky Court. On September 30, 1821, he was given permission by the Henry County, Kentucky court to keep a tavern in his house for one year. The following year he moved his family to St. Louis, Missouri.

Daniel Applegate was born in New Jersey in 1768. Although he was only a very young boy during the Revolutionary period, he served as a fifer and drummer under Capt. Ballard and Col. Shrove. He also received the rank of private, presumably at the very close of the war as he would have only been 17 or 18 when the conflict ended.

After the war he married Rachel Lindsay, and they had 5 children. The family lived in Virginia for a number of years and then moved to Shelby County, Kentucky. Finally they came to Missouri in 1822, being one of the earliest pioneer families in St. Clair County. Daniel’s sons, Jesse, Charles, and Lisbon later migrated to Oregon.

Daniel Applegate did receive a pension from New Jersey for his war service. Although most of his time in Missouri was spent in St. Clair County, he died in 1826 at St. Louis, Missouri at age 58 and was buried there.
