  • Notes 
    • Spafford Mortuary Records with Genealogical Notes, G. Collins, Newberry E698408: Gives parents, date of birth, wife and her dob, with Jonathan as child.

      Evidentally served in Revolutionary War from New York (Scott, Cortland). Rex Warden has provided copies of an extensive set of documents concerning the efforts of his wife, Priscella, to obtain a pension (under the law of 1836). The claim was denied. A search of American Revolutionary War Rejected Pensions (from the book Rejected or Suspended Applications for Revolutionary War Pensions, 1852) confirms the rejection with the reason: "He did serve six months in a military capacity."

      Affidavit of brother Asa Ripley, claiming to serve with David for 18 months in company of Captain Elijah Bostwick of Canaan, Columbiana co. in regiment of Col. William Whiting. In battle of White Plains and at Cherry Valley, 1777.

      Date of death from affidavit of wife in connection with the above.

      Not found in New York in the Revolution as Colony and State, vol. 1 complied by James A. Roberts, Comptroller [of the State], 1898, supplement complied by E.C. Knight, 1901, published in Albany. This is listing from muster rolls and payrolls. Brother Asa found in above company and regiment.
