24     GEORGE OATMAN

 

 

24        GEORGE4     (George3, John2, Johannes1), son of George and Ruth (Wooster)  Outman, was born in Ripton, Connecticut, ca 1757 and died in 1836.  He removed to Arlington, Bennington County, Vermont, with his father and served during the War of the American Revolution, a part of such service being recorded in Vermont Revolutionary Rolls as follows:

 

"A Pay Roll of Capt. M. Lyon's Company of Alarm, list for service done in the year 1780 . . . [Private] Geo. Oatman, Jr.  October Alarm, 5 days in service, 50 miles travel, amt. pay Oct. alarm 0.6.8, amt. travel Oct. alarm 0.16.8.  Total 1.3.4"

 

George married 1) Ann(e) Terrill, who was born ca 1756, daughter of Phineas and Phebe (Outman) Terrill/Turrill (see #9).  After the war, he removed to Middletown Springs, Vermont, where he carved out a farm and home from the virgin forests in a beautiful spot among the Green Mountains.  It is now known as Oatman Hill, a place well worth visiting.

 

George and Ann later moved to Locke, New York.  He married 2) Anna Turner ca 1802.  The exact date of his death is not known. 

 

Unfortunately, the town records of Middletown Springs for those early years have been destroyed by fire and the information here recorded is taken from Vermont Gazetteer, Frisbie's History of Middletown, and the Vermont Revolutionary Rolls, together with some records found in the families.
