CHAPTER VI.

THE HOME OF PATRIOTS.

The Revolution.--After a long and successful struggle for Independence, Sheshequin became a "Land of Promise" to a large number who had served in the patriot army. Among those who came were several distinguished officers, who had earned a proud record in fighting for Liberty. The earthly remains of more Revolutionary soldiers lie in Sheshequin cemeteries than in the graveyards of any other town in Northern Pennsylvania. These patriots, whose memory will long be cherished, are: Gen. Simon Spalding, Capt. Stephen Fuller, Capt. Jeremiah Shaw, Capt. Jabez Fish, Capt. Samuel Bartlett, Serg. Samuel Gore, Joseph Kinney, Benjamin Brink, John C. Vaneise, John Spalding and Jared Norton in the Sheshequin cemetery: Lieut. Obadiah Gore and Christopher Avery in the Gore cemetery: Sergt. Timothy Culver and Elijah Horton in the Hornbrook cemetery: Samuel Shores in the Post cemetery: Moses Woodburn on the T. R. Macafee farm. War of 1812.-- In the second war with Great Britain, Nathaniel Fuller enlisted in the American army and was killed in one of the battles with the enemy. Other soldiers of this war who are buried in Sheshequin are: Sullivan Chaffee and Jonathan Thompson at Hornbrook; Joseph Lent and Henry Deats at Sheshequin: David Hawkins (died in early 60's) at Ghent: Thomas Johnson at Miller's. Mexican War.--David Blackman enlisted in the US Army and is supposed to have lost his life in one of the battles of the Mexican war. Stephen Follan, a soldier of this war, is buried at Sheshequin.

The Civil War.--Sheshequin has a long honor roll of those who fought for the Union, and with one or two other towns, stands at the head in Bradford's unrivaled list of patriots. The following were the "Sheshequin boys" and the commands with which they served:

The "Sheshequin boys" served in every department of the Union army, except the navy, and their fighting record includes all the great battles of the war. There was scarcely a family in the town but what sent one or more of its members to the front. Nine brothers, sons of Abraham Vancise, donned the blue. William Tripp and three sons faced rebel bullets. The father lost his life in prison, one of the sons, Henry, died, the other two returned home battle-scarred. The first martyr to the cause of the Union was Almon C. Gillett, who was killed at the battle of Fair Oaks. The last man from the town killed in action, was Daniel Minier.

The percentage of loss ( 20 per cent.) among the Sheshequin soldiers was exceedingly high. Sixteen were killed on the battlefield---Almon C. Gillett, Clarence B. Shaw, Stephen Anthony, James H. Childs, Abraham Miller, Daniel Minier, William Phinney, Orange Shores, Hiram L. Culver, John P. Snyder, Sophronus Hill, Newcomb Kinney, Guy D. Ball, Charles N. Billings, Joseph Brady and Daniel Vann; four died of wounds--Hugh Farley, Loren Bennett, David Daines and Orrin D. Snyder; three died in prison--William Tripp, Lester E. Brigham and David Heavener; one was killed accidentally--James A. Shores; fifteen died of disease--S. Gibson Shaw, Harrison Van Veckten, Jeremiah S. Shores, Mahlon Shores, Squire H. Lamoreaux, Jacob Sheeler, Henry P. Tripp, Wilson D. Gillett, Geo. L. Hemenway, Austin C. Tuttle, Isaac Horton, Lemuel Hemenway, David H. Demoney, Sylvester Horton and Stephen J. Lovelace; one, Lawrence Smith, died on his way home. Twenty-four were badly wounded. Eight experienced the horrors of rebel prisons. Jno. R. Brink says of the 13 of his company, captured with him, he was the only one who came out of prison alive. During the five months he was in Salisbury 5, 000 Union soldiers lived.
