My favorite ancestor is Jonathan Westgate, who was probably born at Middleboro, Massachusetts, about 1760. His parents are unknown. His death is recorded as May 31,1822, when he was sixty-one years of age. He married Hannah Gammons, the daughter of John and Hannah (Cole) Gammons, on April 14,1785, in Middleboro. She was born at Middleboro on February 28,1766, died there on October 12, 1796, and is buried in Middleboro at Neck Cemetery. There were seven children by this marriage.

Jonathan Westgate married a second time, to Eunice Reed, the daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Reed, in Middleboro, on November 6, 1798.
Jonathan Westgate married a third time on December 30, 1813, at Rochester, Massachusetts, to Delia (Handy) Sherman, the widow of Cornelius Sherman.
During the American Revolution, Jonathan Westgate enlisted in Captain Henry Pierce's company from Lakeville, Massachusetts, and served in the Rhode Island campaign of 1777. He also served in the War of 1812 along with his son, Jonathan Jr. in Captain Calvin Shaw's company. One shortcoming in his history is that there is no record of his parents or ancestry.
