About Benjamin Applegate, II

Benjamin Applegate, born 1725; died May 31, 1823 in Allegheny Co., Pa. He married (1) Rebecca Wall, born 1730; died Nov. 25, 1781; daughter of James Wall; (2) to Hannah_______, born ; died .

(It is interesting to note what had happened since the will of Benjamin-3 was probated in Burlington Co., NJ on May 16, 1753. Several of Benjamin's sons had settled in Allegheny Co., Pa. or what is now Washington Co., Pa., but at time claimed by Virginia and called Yohogania Co. Harvey Linn Applegate, writing in 1915, gave the following account. "Benjamin-4 emigrated to Rostraver Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pa.(now Forward Twp., Allegheny Co., Pa.) in 1766, "in company with James and Walter Wall (his brother-in- law)". They returned to "the east" in the fall of 1768, and they brought their families to Rostraver Twp. in the spring of 1769).* Recently, it was discovered that the Applegate who accompanied the Wall brothers, was Benjamin's nephew, Thomas Applegate, Jr. Garrett Applegate(1758-1837) perhaps the second son of Benjamin-4 after Walter, states in his Revolutionary War pension application (S32098) that he was born in Berkeley Co., Va. on Nov. 2, 1758 and lived there until 1774. (Berkeley Co., Va. was formed in 1772 from Frederick Co., Va. and included what is now the eastern panhandle of WV, Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson Cos., WV). Benjamin-4 was in the Revolutionary War, serving with Capt. Thomas Moore's Co. of Rangers(1778-83).(Pa. Arch. 3, Ser. Vol. 23, p.322). Benjamin was granted a tract of 397 acres of land on Nov. 23, 1787 by the Supreme Executive council of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The deed for this property was recorded in the Rolls Office in Patent Book, Vol. 11, page 407 in Harrisburg, Pa. Benjamin lived on this land and he and Rebecca were buried there. There are no traces of their tombstones now as a barn was built over that area, formerly his cemetery. Benjamin's will was dated Jan. 20, 1821 and it listed all of his children and a few of his grandchildren.
