| "Solomon Waring received a Revolutionary
War Pension S14787. He enlisted 4/1777 for 9 months. Was a Private
in Capt. Nathaniel Slawson's Company under Major John
Davenport in Conn. Militia and then served 6 months
on duty for alarms on seaboard. He was discharged "but
did not receive it in writing. Sept. 24,
1832 appeared before Judges of Common Pleas, State of N.Y. Oswego Co. for
declaration of Rev. War service in order to receive
He was 72 years old. Born in
Norwalk, Conn. 1761, moved to Ballstown, N.Y. 1785 and then to Constantia,
N.Y. in 1792. Samuel Leonard, Clergyman of Town of Hastings
and Benjamin Winch, Town of Richland were witnesses. He moved
to Town of Hastings in 1821, appeared Sept. 6, 1833 "to claim pension to
Judge of Oswego Co. Court with Nicholas I Roosevelt and
Russell Fitch as witnesses.
He was inscribed on the roll of New
York #24159 Conn. Line, Nov. 1833 and received $30 a year and $75 in arrears
(since Mar. 4, 1831) recorded Book E Vol 4 Page 128.
Duplicate certificate issued Oct.
1840 to H. Fitch, Central Square, Oswego Co. probably at time
of death. He received no land bounty. I have copy of War Records
from National Archives."
Compiler obtained a copy of the pension file of Solomon Waring for
his pension under File No. S14787, which confirmed all of the above,
In addition there was an affidavit that Solomon served in a 'detachment
for guarding the seaboard in 1777 for the term of nine months. That he
served said term faithfully at Norwalk Connecticut and was dismissed but
obtained no regular discharge.
That he was frequently called out
on a draft or rallied by alarms as often as once or twice a weak [sic]
for above six months and was often engaged in driving the Cow(?) boys from
their hiding places or preventing them from taking property from citisens.
That he was born in Norwalk Connecticut in 1761; that in 1785 he
moved to Ballstown New York. From thence to Constantia in said County
of Oswego.' The NARA record contains two spellings of the surname
by including that alternate of
Warring, although his signature on the affidavit
supporting his application clearly has a single r.
The move to Ballstown (probably Ballston near Saratoga) is not supported
by any other record. Since census records show Waring children in
County who were born in CT after 1785, either
Solomon moved back to CT, or the information about Ballstown is in error.
A researcher from Saratoga County verified that some Warings had gone to
that County in the late 1780's, but she did not find a Solomon. Perhaps
he had lived there a short time and returned to Norwalk.]
"In 1793 he was one of two settlers (the
other Joshua Lynch) of Scriba's Patent, Rotterdam (Constantia).
In 1793 opened first tavern on site of present Lakeside House. Settlers
of Rotterdam came from New England and near Albany. In 1798 he was
on assessment roll for
Town of Mexico, 1797 at first known town meeting
of Mexico Solomon Waring listed assessor of Rotterdam, overseer
of the poor and collector. His second wife was an Ormand and
he lived on the Wright Place near center of Caughdenoy. He is buried
in an unmarked grave in the old section of Caughdenoy Cemetery (1840).
