Samuel Dewees, the son of Cornelius and Margaret Koster Dewees, was born in Berks county, Pa., where he married Elizabeth, and raised a family of six sons and one daughter. He was a leather breeches maker by trade, but in 1760 was master collier at Patton's furnace, about ten miles from Reading, in the same county. He was Captain in one of the Pennsylvania regiments during the Revolution, and was taken prisoner by the British and confined on board the prison ship. His wife by dint of coaxing and importunities had permission to wait on him, and eventually he was released. He was afterwards, in 1777, sent to the hospital near Allentown to take care of the sick who were confined there with the small-pox. He was superintendent and bad charge of the rations and the preparation of food, etc., and assisted in nursing. He contracted the disease and died in the hospital, and was buried at or near Allentown. His son Samuel was a fifer in the same regiment with his father, and served through the war. He was afterward made captain in the Pennsylvania Militia. Samuel, d. 1777, m. Elizabeth, children: John, William, Elizabeth, Samuel, Paul, Thomas, David [ref 95:132,170]
