Pension Record of Benjamin Covell

New York

Benjamin Covell

who was a private in the regiment commanded by

the 20th of May, 1818

Note: Ruth Chisholm read Benjamin's grandchildren, the children of Jonathan Covell, slightly different. She read Parmeter as Parmenter; Abijah as Abigail; and did not include what I read as Bethia.  The name Bethia is just a guess, because the writing is so indistinct.
