About John Frederich Empie

headstone is inscribed: John F. Empie Soldier of the Revolution died Oct. 25 1857

Organic material is growing on headstone inscription, but it seems to read as-

101 years 9 months 5 days

That would mean a birth year of 1755 vs 1753.
I will leave both until I find another citation.
Patriot >SOURCE< DAR Ancestor File # A036709

D.A.R. has him listed as John Empie spouse: Catherine Cool associated family member applications: 209060 and 271987 by son Frederick Empey and spouse Nancy Klock


Baptisim date does not coincide with D.A.R. birth date- matches closer to what I have researched.
