Notes for Ebenezer Jr. Webb: Military Service : Patriot of the Revolution. He volunteered May 1775 to Captain Obadiah Johnson’s Company, Colonel Israel Putnam’s Regiment, stationed some time at Cambridge, Massachusetts, and was discharged December 1775. Enlisted July 1776 to Captain Elijah Sharp’s Company, Colonel Samuel Mott’s Regiment; on expedition to Ticonderoga and discharged 28 November 1776. In September 1780, enlisted for two months in Captain Rush’s Company, Colonel McLellan’s Regiment.
Location of Residences, record of movement, migration, etc. Property : A statement in his pension file : “He resided at Windham until February 1782, then moved to Norwich, Hampshire County, Massachusetts and lived there eight years. He then moved to Benson, Rutland County, Vermont where he lived the remainder of his life.” This is not exactly correct, as Ebenezer was living in Malone, Franklin County, New York, at age 75 years, when he gave a deposition in his brother Christopher’s pension case. He may have lived in Vermont at the time of his death.
