Revolutionary War Soldiers and their Spouses Who Were Among The Pioneers of Tioga County PA
Following is a list of known Revolutionary War soldiers and their wives who are buried in, or who lived in Tioga County PA. This includes many who were residents of the county at the time they filed pension papers but about whom little is known. If you can fill in any of the gaps in the chart below, please contact me. The primary source for this material is Our Revolutionary Heritage, Rhoda ENGLISH Ladd, 1985. Supplementary material is from the database of Joyce M. Tice's Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. Since Rhoda's book was published additional residents have been certified as revolutionary soldiers, such as my own ancestor, Jonathan Wood, whom I have included in the list. If you know of other soldiers who are not listed, but for whom you have documented evidence, please notify me so I can add them to the list. I will be adding family reports for those who are in my database. If you have material to contribute to the biographies and family information of these couples, please contact me. Joyce M. Tice 
If you are descended from any of these people, you may have your name listed with them in the descendants column. Contact me at Note that a few of these people are also listed on the Bradford County Revolutionary War page as they lived in both counties. If you are using a married name alias, please sign your name in the format Jane SMITH Doe.

Subj:  Jacob STOLL

From: (Jacqueline Thurlow)

Dear Joyce, I would like to add the name of Jacob STOLL (sometimes spelled as "STULL") to the list of Rev. War soldiers of Tioga County. This has been
a difficult search partly due to Jacob's association with "Newtown (Newton), Sussex County, NJ and then "Newtown", NY. Also members of the original
"STOL" family settled in different counties in NJ. Jacob was a member of Newtown's(Newton's), NJ "committee of safety" as well as Captain of the local "6 Company" which served in both PA and Delaware during 1778. I have copies of the original payment records signed by Cap't Jacob Stoll for his company of 60 men of Col. Hankinson's Regiment. These records vary according to # of men involved and where service took place. On 26/May/1784, Jacob sold his 50 acre tract, containing the old mill etc., in "Newton", NJ to his brother, John.  The next record of Jacob STULL is when he purchased lot #69 in Oct. 1788, 104 acres, in what was to be Southport, Chemung Co., NY.  Jacob, son of John (Jans) STOLL was b. circa 1741 m. Sara Pittenger (1773--1764) d. 14/Nov/1809 in Tioga (Chemung Co) NY.
His son, Jacob Jr., b. circa 1775 m. "Phebe CASE of Newton", NJ d. 13/Jan/1852.  I have much info re: son of Jacob, Jr. and Phebe, James STOLL.
I would like to know where 1st and 2nd mentioned Jacobs are buried. I do know where James and his wife, Adeline McKeel SMITH are buried although your site lists them as "STROLL".  This is not the name on the tombstones. I would appreciate any information anyone might have re: Phebe CASE.  Jacob
probably returned to NJ to marry Phebe as she is listed by Justice of the Peace John Gustin to be living in Newton (later Frankford) Township, NJ.
Although I know gr-parents of Adeline McKeel SMITH (m. James STOLL) were Gabriel SMITH and Polly Peterson and parents were Gabriel SMITH Jr. and #1 wife, Sarah MCKEEL, I cannot sort out the Gabriel L. SMITH and just Gabriel SMITH mentioned in History of Chemung County.  If you know of anyone who could help, I'd be grateful.  I had emailed a person but she just replied that if I could substantiate that Adeline was a member of her Gabriel SMITH, it would be interesting. Thanks for your attention. Jacqueline (Jackie)

You have listed John G. Huyler and his wives 1) Hannah Whitney 2) Phebe R. Slocum on your page for Rev. War Veterans and their spouses.  I would like to add addition data on John.

John G. Huyler was born 4 Oct 1763 in Hackensack, Bergen Co., NJ.  He died 10 Sept. 1846 in Westfield, Tioga Co., PA.  John G not only served in the Amer. War but in the War of 1812 as well.  He was wounded in the battle of Queenstown, N.Y. and taken, a prisoner, into Canada.  This information is from affidavits filed to obtain a military pension.

John G Huyler and his first wife Hannah Whitney are my 4th great grandparents.
