Clinton County, NY Lists



More than a dozen men listed on the 1835 Census of Pensioners for Clinton county New York are listed as serving in Hazen's regiment, Congress's Own regiment or simply Canada. When I researched these men, I discovered few of them are recognized by the DAR or have memorials on findagrave.com. A few words on their units origin and service seem in order.

When General Montgomery invaded Canada in 1775, the estate of Moses Hazen, in St Jean, Quebec, was plundered and destroyed by the Americans during the battle for Fort Chambly. He was a veteran of the French and Indian wars and was a half pay Lieutenant. The British claimed he was a spy and imprisoned him for 2 months. When he was released, he joined the American cause and fought at Quebec. After that defeat, he went to Philadelphia where Congress established the 2nd Canadian Regiment and offered him it's command. This regiment , also known as Congress's Own, was under the command of congress while the rest of the army was controlled by the states. It was organized February 10, 1776 under the army's Canadian command and Hazen recruited men in the Richelieu and St Lawrence valleys.

When the American's were driven out of Canada, the regiment moved south to New York City. It participated at Staten Island, Brandywine, Germantown and the siege of Yorktown, disbanding on November 15, 1783 at West Point. Because the men could not return to Canada, many settled near Albany and Fishkill, New York. Congress refused to give them land grants. Hazen and some of his men finally received land grants from New York state in the north near Lake Champlain. An excellent article about this unit can be found on Wikipedia.

This table was complied from the New York Pension Roll in Vol II of the 1835 Report on the Pension Establishment created by the Secretary of War, at the direction of congress. This is available free on line thanks to Google Books. This table does not contain all the information recorded in the report. The Notes column has been edited and remarks referring to Acts of Congress removed. Names I believe to be 1812 veterans have been excluded.

The following table it my best estimate of the Revolutioary burials in Clinton. It should not be considered complete or definative. It was assembled from the 1835 Census of Pensioners,the DAR search site and the Northern New York Tombstone Transcription Project. The latter is an excellent resource and very complete.

DAR# is the number assigned by the DAR and FAG# is the memorial number on findagrave.com. The burials with a memorial on Findagrave have been collected into a virtual cemetery, that may contain more information and photos.
