About Jacob Petrus Weatherwax

Found @ Ancestry.com

" Mrs. Ann Weatherwax, mother of Susan Eliza (Weatherwax) (Hibbard) Inman, applied for a War of 1812 widow's pension which was rejected on account of insufficient length of service of her husband, Jacob P. Weatherwax.

The War of 1812 pension application of Ann Weatherwax, File No. W. O. 3,818, gives:-

May 23, 1871 Ann Weatherwax, a resident of near Vinton, Benton Co., Iowa, aged 78 years, widow of Jacob P. Weatherwax who was a private in the company commanded by Captain George R. Davis and who was a soldier in the War of 1812.

She married the said Jacob P. Weatherwax, November 20, 1811, by Mynard Grosbeck in the town of Schaghticoke, Rensselaer Co., New York, It was customary in the said state of New York at the time she was married for the parties to appear before a Justice of the Peace, clergyman, or other persons authorized by law to solemnize marriages without previously obtaining any licenses or having their intentions published in any other manner. That after such marriage took place no record was made of it, the official who joined the parties in marriage not being required to record the same, nor report such marriage to any officer required by law to keep a record of marriages. That notwithstanding, she has made every effort to procure record evidence of her marriage by addressing letters to the Probate Judge, Clerk of the Court, and County Recorder of the County and the Township Clerk of the Township in which such marriage took place, and from the replies so far received she has every reason to believe that there is no record of her marriage in existence except her own family record which was consumed by fire along with the house in which we were living some 28 years ago.

The said Jacob P. Weatherwax has been dead for some years and the eye witnesses to the said marriage are all reported to be dead.

(signed) Ann Weatherwax

On the same day Edwin J. Weatherwax and Susan E. Inman swear as to acquaintance with the said Ann Weatherwax.

Ann Weatherwax further swears that the said Jacob P. Weatherwax was drafted in Captain George R. Davis' Company, Colonel Carr's Regiment, Hoosack Brigade, at Schaghticoke, N.Y. on October 15, 1812 and was honorably discharged near Whitehall, New York on September 10, 1814. He was under General Eddy. She got a land warrant for 160 acres in the fall of 1856. The above are the facts as near as I can give them. My memory is so defective that I may have made mistakes."
