Sons of the American Revolution, The Binghamton Chapter of the Empire
State Society. Binghamton, N.Y., Feb. 18th 1960.
It is with a great deal of pleasure that I have agreed to Mr. Donald K.
Bostwick's request to add a
foreword for this booklet. Compatriot Bostwick as Chairman of the
Graves Registration Committee of the Binghamton Chapter has been a
in developing the information contained herein. For many years I, as
well as many other
amateur historians have assumed that the 40 odd names of the so-called
Revolutionary War Pensioners contained in the archives of the Broome
County Clerk's Office, was the entire
list of all Revolutionary War veterans in this County. It was through
the research of this
Graves Registration Committee it became known that we had many more
veterans of the War of
the Revolution residing in Broome County than that list indicated. It
has always seemed to
me that if there is a purpose for the existence of an organization such
as the Sons of the American Revolution, that that purpose should be to
develop certain information pertaining
to any given subject. To render the necessary financial assistance in
fostering that subject and to sponsor or underwrite a compilation such
as this. The Binghamton Chapter plans
to make this booklet available to all local libraries, historical
societies and any other group
who show a specific interest in this subject. We feel that to bend our
efforts and donate our
money for this purpose readily justifies the existence of our Society.
Our basic purpose in preparing this booklet is to supply an authorative
reference for future generations who may
wish to become better informed of the part the early settlers of Broome
County played in the
American Revolutionary War and American Independence. Yours for Better
Philip C. Myers, President Binghamton Chapter.
In 1893, the late Susan Doubleday Craft, Charter Member of the
Tuscarora Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, published a
pamphlet containing the names of approximately two-hundred
Revolutionary War veterans who settled in Broome County, New York. Mis
Craft traveled by horse and buggy throughout the county, compiling
and Military service records necessary for such a work. To
date, the pamphlet which resulted from this tireless research has been
our best source cf such information for the
Broome County area.
To Susan Doubleday Craft go our highest compliments and
admiration. Few people have equalified her devotion to the men who
fought for American Independence, either before
or since. In 1953, using Susan Doubleday Craft's booklet as
a guide, the Binghamton Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution
set out to put SAR. (Soldiers of the American
Revolution) markers on all such veteran's graves that could
be located. This project led to further research on the part of
compatriots, Walter Irving, Dr. Hugh Gregory,
Joseph Westcott, Donald Bostwick, and other members of the
Graves Registration Committee. Pension records and various other
sources of information yielded further data, which
together with the result of Miss Crafts research, is
presented in statistical form througheut this book.
Although considerable care has been exercised in gathering
and editing the information contained herein, it is by no means to be
considered completely accurate. It should
be extremely useful however, to those seeking official
references, and should provide a much better understanding of the part
played by the Revolutionary War veterens in
settling Broome county. Binghamton Chapter of the Empire
Sate Society, Sons of the American Revolution.
Revolutionary War Veterans who settled in Broome
brought with them memories of practically every battle and campaign of
that War, including the Boston Tea Party,
Bunker Hill, Lexington, Saratoga, Bennington, Dobbs Ferry,
The Wyoming Massacre, and many more up to the victory at Yorktown and
Washington's triumphant march into New York City.
Among them were men who had served as body guards to
Washington and LaFayette, as Green Mountain Boys, as guards of the
captured Major Andre, as Minute Men, or as a
Marine under Captain John Paul Jones. Among them were
represented all the set backs and all the victories of the War of 1776.
One need only to name the battle, and it is
represented by a veteran who is buried in Broome County.
It is interesting to note that in several cases, many
veterans of one particular regiment settled in Broome County. There
were no telegraph wires, no radio or television
to spread the news, but from one veteran to another the word
seemed to spread that in Broome County there was good farm land. This
was good news, especially to the land hungry folks of Connecticut and
Massachusetts. Hence in several
cases, as many as ten to fifteen veterans of a single regiment came to
settle here after the War.
A breakdown, showing the States under which the men served,
follows. Among those represented as "unknown", it is reasonable to
assume that several served in the Continental Army.
Connecticut 65; Settled in Nearby Counties 14;
New York 52 Settled in Broome County 303;
New Jersey 9;
New Hampshire 5; Burial place known 205;
Vermont 4; Burial Place unknown 112;
Rhode Island 3;
Unknown 132; Where they settled known 256;
Where they settled unknown 61;
As of 1960, a total of 119 Revolutionary War
have been located and photographed in Broome County. These pictures
appear in another section of the book.
AND CEMETERY DIRECTORY
As an explanation, we
would like to call to your attention the following, not to get in a
dispute with the local historians but to give reaon why you find the
towns of Owego and Berkshire under the County of Broome.
1. The book "New York Pension Roll" from which many
references are taken lists the towns of Owego and Berkshire under the
County of Broome.
2. On page 132 "Spafford, Horatio Gates: Gazete of New York
State", published in Albany, Aug. 12, 1813, we find the following:
"Berkshlre, a township in the N.W. extremity
of Broome County"; and on pages 264-5, "Owego, a large
township situated in the S.E. corner of Broome County".
3. Another reference, "Gazeteer of the State of New York" by
J.H. French, published by R.P. Smith, Publishers, 8 So. Salina Street,
Syracuse, N.Y., 1860: Page 178, "Broome County was formed from Tioga
County on March 28,
1806. Owego and Berkshire were annexed to Tioga County March 21, 1822,
from Broome County". Revolutionary War veterans who settl d. in Broome
listed below in three groups:
1. Area in which they
settled and cemetery is unknown;
2. Area they settled in is known, but the cemetery or burial
place is unknown;
3. Area and cemetery is known; however, unless there is a
star in front of the name, the exact location of the grave is unknown.

The cemetery of Whitney Point, John Seymour Sr. and Dr.
Daniel A. Wheeler gave to the public a plot of ground for a cemetery at
a very early day and probably on the site of the present one. Hannah
Lee was the first person buried
there in 1791. It was then an unbroken forest and remained so for many
years. When a person died, a spot was chosen between the trees and a
grave dug. Two additions have been made -
one from H.A. Seymour's orchard and a larger one from Alfred Thurston's
lands. (Note: I.N.C. Thurston, buried in Upper Lisle Cemetery, could
