      In order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress of the 7th of July 1838 entitled An Act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows
      State of New Hampshire
      Strafford County SS
      On this 31st day of January AD 1844
      personally appeared before the subscriber one of the Judges of the Court of Common Please in and for the County of Strafford aforesaid, Betsey Johnson a resident of Middleton in said County aged seventy nine years [1765], who being first duly sworn according to law doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain this benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed July 7th 1838, entitled "An Act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows" that she is the widow of Samuel Johnson, who was a private in the Army of the revolution-that she does not know in what Company or Regiment he served, nor does she know the name of any of his officers, or where he served, that she had no Documentary evidence of his service-that she understood her said husband to be a native of Lee in New Hampshire, and resided in Middleton NH, at the time he went into the army-that she would refer, for evidence of her said husbands service, to the annexed affidavits of Hannah Garland-Jethro Horn & Benjamin York, and also to the Certificate of Thos P Treadwell Esq which is annexed with the Extracts from the Pay Roll of the new Levies-
      She further declares that she was married to said Samuel Johnson, according to her best recollection and belief on the 24th day of January AD 1783, but being of great age and having no record of the marriage it is possible she may be under a mistake as to the day, but not as to the month of year, and that her husband the aforesaid Samuel Johnson died some time in the Month of May either in 1813 or 1814, according to her very best information, recollection and belief-That she was not married to him, prior to his leaving the service, but the marriage took place previous to the first day of January seventeen hundred and ninety four, viz, at the time above stated.

      Certificate

      [Page]
      I Hannah Garland of Middleton in the County of Strafford and State of New Hampshire aged eighty four years [1760], depose and say that I moved with my husband from my father's house in Barrington in said State according to my recollection and belief in the year 1778-that at the time of our removal to said Middleton, a man by the name of Josiah Johnson resided in said town within about one mile of our house-that said Johnson informed me, and I always undestood, that he removed from Lee in said State to said Middleton-that said Josiah Johnson had a son by the name of Samuel Johnson, when I was first acquainted in said family, who aftewards went from said Middleton, into the Army as a soldier-that I was at his father's house on the day said Samuel Johnson went into the army, but I do not recollect the name of any officer or soldier who went with him, but after understood by report that one Anthony Peavey was in the same Company-and that I do not recollect how long said Samuel Johnson was gone in the service-
      I further state that after said Samuel Johnson returned from the army he was married, as I then and ever afterwards understood, to one Betsy Whitehouse daughter of John Whitehouse of said Middleton, tho I was not present, by the late Rev Nehemiah Ordway-that said Ordway was then an ordained minister residing in said Middleton, but afterwards moved away, and I have understood, long ago dead-that said Samuel Johnson resided with his family in said Middleton a considerable number of years. I should think from fifteen or twenty years-that he moved to Wolfborough & as I understood afterwards to Canada; which his family was residing there, as I understood many years ago, he died-and that I have any doubt and have not now any doubt that the said Samuel Johnson died as it was reported he did die-
      I further depose and say that said Betsey Johnson does now reside in said Middleton where I now reside

      I Jethro Horn of New Durham in the County of Strafford & State of New Hampshire aged ninety three years [1751] depose and say that I was well acquainted with Samuel Johnson formerly of Middleton in said County of Strafford, before he was married-That I was then a resident in said Middleton and lived within two miles of him and that we were some relative by a subsequent marriage of said Johnson with a girl named Betsey Whitehouse whose mother was a sister of my mother [Jethro Horne m Mary Stiles s William Horne m Phoebe Heard]- That I know said Samuel Johnson went into the army in the Revolutionary war and I think he went to the south and I think he was at No 4, now called Charlestown in this State of New Hampshire but how long he was gone I do not recollect, but I do recollect that they, said Samuel Johnson and Betsey Whitehouse were married not a great while after he (Johnson) returned from the war-I was present at their wedding and saw them married, that the minister who married them was Nehemiah Ordway who was a Congregational minister, then residing in said Middleton, but who afterwards moved from said Middleton, and I have been informed has been dead many years.
      I further say that said Samuel Johnson after residing considerable time in Middleton moved away and as I have long since understood went to Canada and many years ago died-that I do not at this time recollect these various dates of the marriage-moving away from said Middleton the time of his (Johnsons) death-the time of the deceased of said Ordway and the like-
      I further state that said Samuel Johnson and I was not acquainted until we both moved into said Middleton-My place of nativity was in Somersworth in said County of Strafford and I understood and have no doubt that said Johnson moved either from Lee or New Market in said State to said Middleton a year or two before I did an that he was a resident of said Middleton when he went into the army as by me above stated

      Declaration
      In order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress of the 7th of July 1838 entitled An Act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows
      State of New Hampshire
      Strafford County SS
      On this 31st day of January AD 1844
      personally appeared before the subscriber one of the Judges of the Court of Common Please in and for the County of Strafford aforesaid, Betsey Johnson a resident of Middleton in said County aged seventy nine years [1765], who being first duly sworn according to law doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain this benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed July 7th 1838, entitled "An Act granting half pay and pensions to certain widows" that she is the widow of Samuel Johnson, who was a private in the Army of the revolution-that she does not know in what Company or Regiment he served, nor does she know the name of any of his officers, or where he served, that she had no Documentary evidence of his service-that she understood her said husband to be a native of Lee in New Hampshire, and resided in Middleton NH, at the time he went into the army-that she would refer, for evidence of her said husbands service, to the annexed affidavits of Hannah Garland-Jethro Horn & Benjamin York, and also to the Certificate of Thos P Treadwell Esq which is annexed with the Extracts from the Pay Roll of the new Levies-
      She further declares that she was married to said Samuel Johnson, according to her best recollection and belief on the 24th day of January AD 1783, but being of great age and having no record of the marriage it is possible she may be under a mistake as to the day, but not as to the month of year, and that her husband the aforesaid Samuel Johnson died some time in the Month of May either in 1813 or 1814, according to her very best information, recollection and belief-That she was not married to him, prior to his leaving the service, but the marriage took place previous to the first day of January seventeen hundred and ninety four, viz, at the time above stated.

      I Hannah Garland of Middleton in the County of Strafford and State of New Hampshire aged eighty four years [1760], depose and say that I moved with my husband from my father's house in Barrington in said State according to my recollection and belief in the year 1778-that at the time of our removal to said Middleton, a man by the name of Josiah Johnson resided in said town within about one mile of our house-that said Johnson informed me, and I always undestood, that he removed from Lee in said State to said Middleton-that said Josiah Johnson had a son by the name of Samuel Johnson, when I was first acquainted in said family, who aftewards went from said Middleton, into the Army as a soldier-that I was at his father's house on the day said Samuel Johnson went into the army, but I do not recollect the name of any officer or soldier who went with him, but after understood by report that one Anthony Peavey was in the same Company-and that I do not recollect how long said Samuel Johnson was gone in the service-
      I further state that after said Samuel Johnson returned from the army he was married, as I then and ever afterwards understood, to one Betsy Whitehouse daughter of John Whitehouse of said Middleton, tho I was not present, by the late Rev Nehemiah Ordway-that said Ordway was then an ordained minister residing in said Middleton, but afterwards moved away, and I have understood, long ago dead-that said Samuel Johnson resided with his family in said Middleton a considerable number of years. I should think from fifteen or twenty years-that he moved to Wolfborough & as I understood afterwards to Canada; which his family was residing there, as I understood many years ago, he died-and that I have any doubt and have not now any doubt that the said Samuel Johnson died as it was reported he did die-
      I further depose and say that said Betsey Johnson does now reside in said Middleton where I now reside

      I Jethro Horn of New Durham in the County of Strafford & State of New Hampshire aged ninety three years [1751] depose and say that I was well acquainted with Samuel Johnson formerly of Middleton in said County of Strafford, before he was married-That I was then a resident in said Middleton and lived within two miles of him and that we were some relative by a subsequent marriage of said Johnson with a girl named Betsey Whitehouse whose mother was a sister of my mother [Jethro Horne m Mary Stiles s William Horne m Phoebe Heard]- That I know said Samuel Johnson went into the army in the Revolutionary war and I think he went to the south and I think he was at No 4, now called Charlestown in this State of New Hampshire but how long he was gone I do not recollect, but I do recollect that they, said Samuel Johnson and Betsey Whitehouse were married not a great while after he (Johnson) returned from the war-I was present at their wedding and saw them married, that the minister who married them was Nehemiah Ordway who was a Congregational minister, then residing in said Middleton, but who afterwards moved from said Middleton, and I have been informed has been dead many years.
      I further say that said Samuel Johnson after residing considerable time in Middleton moved away and as I have long since understood went to Canada and many years ago died-that I do not at this time recollect these various dates of the marriage-moving away from said Middleton the time of his (Johnsons) death-the time of the deceased of said Ordway and the like-
      I further state that said Samuel Johnson and I was not acquainted until we both moved into said Middleton-My place of nativity was in Somersworth in said County of Strafford and I understood and have no doubt that said Johnson moved either from Lee or New Market in said State to said Middleton a year or two before I did an that he was a resident of said Middleton when he went into the army as by me above stated
