About Tough Daniel Maupin

DAR Ancestor #:A075696

Data added @ The Story Gabriel and Marie Maupin by Dorothy Maupin Shaffett, 2000

Daniel Maupin was born in Albemarle County, VA, 6 Dec 1760 and died in Madison County, KY, 29 Aug 1832. He served in the Revolutionary army and was Washington's courier during the winter at Valley Forge. He took part in all of the battles fought by Washington from 1778 to the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. His extraordinary vitality during the hardships of these campaigns won for him the name of "Tough Daniel Maupin". From the Madison County Court Order Book "Aug. 13th 1853. The declaration of Margaret Maupin, widow of Daniel Maupin, deceased, Revolutionary pensioner of the U.S., made for the purpose of obtaining the benefit of the act of Congress, was produced, sworn to, and subscribed in open court by the said Margaret Maupin and ordered to be certified." Records indicate that Daniel Maupin had three wives. The name of the first unknown. Earlier publications have listed her name as Betsy Gentry, daughter of Martin Gentry. That does not seem likely as their Consent to Marry and Marriage Bond give the marriage date as 21 Apri I 1791. The marriage dates of the first 6 children range from 1800 to 1808. This could not be for children from a marriage in 1791. It seems unlikely that if Betsy was Daniel's first wife that they would have 6 children before their marriage was recorded as 1791. Another son is believe to be from this first family, GARTEN B. Maupin. Daniel and his family emigrated to Kentucky in 1794. Betsy died 10 June 1804 in Kentucky. On 6 June 1805, Daniel married Margaret McWilliams. Daniel's Will is recorded in Will Book E, page 508. It was probated 11 Oct 1832 in Madison Co. KY.
