birth & death info. He resided in Pomfret from 1768 until after 1785, in Brooklyn, in 1800 and in Greene, Chenango Co., NY in 1818. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War, first in 1775. When the Lexington Alarm sounded he responded & served with the militia near Boston for 20 days, afterwards he enlisted in Pomfret, 1 Jan 1776, and served 1 year in Capt. Grosvenor's company of Col. John Durkee's regiment. In May 1798 he purchased a fulling mill in Lebanon, CT, from his son Dan & sold it to James Sexton the following year by deed witnessed by his son Dan & daughter Lucy. In 1818 he applied for a pension which was granted in 1820. His application was supported by affidavit of this brother William and his comrade in arms, Jonathan Crane., His own affidavit, sworn to in June 1820, states that he was a saddler by trade, with no family, unable to labor, in indigent circumstances and residing with and supported by his son Joseph in Greene. His name appears on the records in Pomfret and Brooklyn and on the index to the deed records in Lebanon as Isaac Row. In the body of the Lebanon deeds his surname is spelled Mon Row and Munrow. The latter spelling of his surname appears in his signature, also in that of his son Dan & daughter Lucy, witnessing the deed to James Sexton. Notwithstanding these discrepancies in the spelling of his surname upon the records, his identity is amply proven by the above- mentioned affidavit of William Monroe, stating that he and Isaac were brothers, also by existing records, among which are his son Joseph's family Bible in the possession of E. L. Monroe in Columbus, PA, stating that Joseph was b 25 Sep 1776 and separate family records prepared by each of his grandsons, Dyar Monroe and James Sexton Monroe, the former now in the possession of Dyar's granddaughter, Mrs. Estella Hughes in Plymouth, NY, the latter with James Sexton's daughter, Mrs. Ella M. Axline of Ada, OH, until her death in 1930. Each of these 2 records state that their father, Dan, son of Isaac Monroe, was b in Pomfret 22 Aug 1774. These dates exactly correspond with the dates shown by the Pomfret records when sons named Joseph and Dan were born to Isaac Row. He died at his son's home in Plymouth, Chenango Co., NY
