Jim,

Found your site tonight and I must say, I am very thankful and supportive of
your work!
I realize it is a tremendous labor of love for you, as I am an avid
genealogist myself (see the link to my genealogy web site below).

I wanted to send this additional information for one of your transcriptions,
as I transcribed this same pension record myself.
Please take my transcription and add what is missing from your web page:

Sorry about the bad formatting, my genealogy program has mangled it a bit.

Thanks for providing the image on this page, it is a bit better than the one

Flats in the county of Herkimer previous to &
during & long after the Revolutionary War, and he
there found the record of deponents baptism in which

& verily believes true and that this information

& others most likely to know the
truth - that said George is a man advanced
in years as deponent believes over seventy

that he could not make said search with

find any record of the marriage of his
said father & mother, that he has found

of said Rosencrantz or of theirs or either of their
of their baptisms, or in the church

as well as those of said Jacobus.
This deponent saith there is no

regular from the year 1775 to his
death in 1796. This deponent saith
that his said brother Jacobus died
many years ago & that his said brother
Henry & sister Elizabeth are still
