Researching Babcock

The BABCOCK GENEOLOGY by Stephen BABCOCK: "#205 Jared STAR, Son of Robert HAZZARD AND Mary (HAZZARD) BABCOCK, b. S. Kingston, R.I. 14 May 1795; d. Pittsfield, ILL 16 Oct 1838; m Stephentown NY 27 Dec, 1817, Diadama, dau of Benjamin and Louis (sic) [MACKAY] DOUGLASS, b. Stephentown 7 May 1800, d.Chicago ILL 18 Nov, 1877. Notation of marriage on pg 28 of: Genealogy of the McKay Family, Descendants of Elkenny McKAY by Dr. James Adolphus McKAY, West Superior, WI.; 1896 "He was a hatter."[referring to] : Jared Starr BABCOCK/ Diadama DOUGLAS children listed as: Jennie, born 18 Jun 1826 Robert "Fuller";[FULTON] born 30 May 1822 Louis [Lois] Douglas (sic); born 4 May 1824

I have much more on the BABCOCKS, DOUGLASES and McKAYS, some of whom went on to Kansas and then returned to Indiana.

I'd most like to know if ANYONE has ever seen a grave marker for Jared Starr BABCOCK? His wife Diadama was a distant cousin of Stephen A. DOUGLAS.

Subject: Jared Starr Babcock
Have you ever found out any more information on Jared Starr Babcock? I found a bounty land warrant for his service in the War of 1812 issued to his widow, Diadema on March 10, 1860, so I know he served in Capt. Tifft's company of the New York Militia. The company was formed in Stephentown, Rensselaer County, New York and Leonard Ross (an early Atlas, Pike County, Illinois settler) was also a member.

I'm trying to locate the burial locations of all the veterans of the War of 1812 who died in Pike county, regardless of where they served. If you have learned of his burial location since you originally posted your question, would you please be kind enough to share it with me?

If you haven't found out anymore information, I'm sure his bounty land application (or Diadema's) would include important information. The warrant number was #65672. I don't know the process for obtaining the application, but I'm sure it could be "Googled". I'm glad I came across your post on here, otherwise I wouldn't have known he died here and I wouldn't have been able to include him on the list of 1812 veterans. Another Babcock who served from New York and died in Pike county was John Babcock and he is buried at Old Barry Cemetery. I don't think Jared ever lived in that area, though. From the census records, it seems like he would have been buried in the Pittfield area. He isn't on any of the cemetery lists done in the 1970's, but he may have been missed.....
