ELIAS DEEDER: (Teeter) (Teetor)
A Pennsylvania Return shows that an Elias Deeder was enrolled in the First Class, Northampton County Militia, Pennsylvania.
Her husband, Abraham Smith, was a private in the New Jersey Militia. Elizabeth filed Pension Application No. W-17013.
Her husband, Daniel Britton, was a private in the New Jersey Militia. He participated in the Battle of Monmouth and other key battles in New Jersey. Charlotte applied for a pension with Pension Application W-9750.
MARIE CATHERINE TEETER:
There is no evidence that her husband, John Dils, participated in the Revolutionary War. However, he operated a ferry near the Delaware Water Gap, and it is known that General Washington commandeered the ferry boats on the Delaware River to ferry the army across the Delaware for the Battle of Trenton. Thus it is quite possible that he had a part in this important battle.
