About Jeremiah Morrill

War of 1812 Veterans in Texas (Greenville, S.C.: Southern Historical Press, 1994), pages 320 & 321. Indicates that Jeremiah Morrill father of Hannah, Jeremiah, Joseph, Philip, and George Washington is also brother of Abel and Abner

According to the War of 1812 Veterans in Texas, the Jeremiah Morrill who was the father of Hannah, Jeremiah, Joseph, Philip, and George Washington is also brother of Abel and Abner. This makes Jeremiah a son of Abner and Lydia (Greeley) Morrill. Morrill Kindred gives a different account of this family group, making this Jeremiah the son of Jacob and Sarah (Wait) Morrill, however there are some inconsistencies in that account, and it cannot be entirely correct. This area deserves more research to ensure we have properly distinguished between the different Jeremiahs that were alive at this time. [6]

At the time that the Revolutionare War broke out, Jeremiah Morrill was a resident of Methuen, Massachusetts. He marched in response to the battles at Lexington and Concord in 1775, and thereafter enlisted for three months. He served as an Orderly Sergeant in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He participated in the battle of Bunker Hill. He removed from Methuen to Andover, and re-enlisted two more times and served through most of 1776. He was present at Fort Ticonderoga during this time, as attested by his brother Joseph who was also there. After being discharged, Jeremiah removed to Danville, Vermont, and there remained for the rest of his life.
