(57) VII. Lois,6 b. 30 Jan., 1731.
(58) VII. Deborah,6 b. 18 Nov., 1732, m. Jona. Sampson, Jr. This Deborah was the mother of the famous "DEB. SAMPSON," who, under the feigned name of Robert Shurtleff, served three years as a private soldier in the army of the Revolution. Having left her friends without their knowledge, she went to the house of a Mr. Leonard, in Middleboro', where, unceremoniously, she possessed herself of enough of his clothing with which to disguise herself. In this plight she wended her way to a recruiting officer and enlisted. She served in Col. Jackson's regiment, and in a company commanded by Capt. Webb. After the war she returned to her friends in Plympton. In 1784, she married Benjamin Gannett of Sharon.
This remarkable woman died in 1827, up to which time she drew a pension. After her deccase, her husband applied for a continuance of the pension, and, at length, in the year 1837 the committee of Congress on Revolutionary Pensions allowed it to be continued to him, from the time of her death.
She was in the skirmish at Tarrytown, and was badly wounded by a musket ball, and yet her sex was not discovered, nor was the ball ever extraeted, which gave her much trouble through life. She was in many engagements, and on all occasions behaved manfully. She was at the capture of Cornwallis, which virtually ended the war, and she was soon after honorably discharged. Her name stands among the pensioners as Garnett, a name common in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, which is probably the same as Gunnett.
According to that very singular book. "The Female Review, or Memoirs, of an
American Young Lady," Deborah Sampson was born in Plympton, Ms., 17 Dec., 1760, and hence was about 67 years of age in 1827, at the time of her death. Her father was an only son. The anonymous work purporting to be her memoirs, should not, we think, be taken as unqualifiedly true, though the principal facts are probably to be relied upon. This book was printed at Dedham, in 1797, 12mo., and is now rarely to be met with.
