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.
married a second time, to Eunice Reed, the daughter of Samuel and Rebecca Reed, in Middleboro, on November 6, 1798.
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.
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.
