Jacob Griffin of Griffin's Tavern?

+3 votes

I'm noting this for future edits. Doing a lot of research on the Rombout Precinct and it would be a shame for Lt. Col. Jacob Griffin to not have a profile.

The answer is "yes".

1)  The website for "Flagon and Trencher"  lists many colonial tavern owners by state; Jacob Griffin is named under "New York".  Navigate around the website to find some of their responsibilities and even the toasts that were used back when! http://www.flagonandtrencher.org/

2) Lieutenant Colonel Jacob Griffin & his wife Ruth Woolsey are honored for serving in the American Revolution.  DAR records list some of his children, who were christened in a church in Rumbout, Dutchess County, New York; the Wikipedia information indicates he served on a "Committee of Correspondence" in Rumbout, NY.  Profiles have been created for some of his children.

I hope this helps,  Janine
