Notes for Daruis Webb: he removed ‘West’, as it was then called and lived in several places in the State of New York,” John Adams Vinton
Darius Webb : He was engaged 8 May 1777, as Sergeant, in Captain Christopher Banister’s Company, Colonel David Weel’s Regiment Massachusetts Militia. He served a total of two months and seven days on the expedition to Ticonderoga, and credited as having traveled 144 miles home, at time of discharge 8 July 1777. He reenlisted 20 September 1777, as Private, in Captain Ebenezer Webber’s Company, Colonel Ezra May’s Regiment Massachusetts’s Militia. The regiment marched on Stillwater, and Darius served 19 days, being credited as traveling ninety miles home, when discharged 4 October 1777. (It is always possible that each enlistment belongs to a different man by the same name, that either or none of them may be Ebenezer’s son.)
Property : “He resided in Widham, Connecticut… After that he removed “West”, as it was then called. He lived in several places in the State of New York, and died, as is believed, in Homer, Cortland County, New York.”
