Elias Cotton Jr. OF The Frigate Deane.

Mr. Eddie E. Scott, sent me some information on his fifth Grandfather.  It was to be a update for my page called ( The two ships called Deane.), but I decided he should have a page of his own.  Mr Scott would be interested in any information you my have on this family lines.  He has also given some information on a  Great Great Grandfather from Kansas as well.  If you have any question or information for any of these names he can be reached at the following.;

Elias Cotton, Jr. served in the Colonial Navy on the Frigate Deane. He applied for and received a pension for that service. Elias Cotton served in the Revolutionary War in the navy on board the Frigate Deane under Captain Samuel Nicholson. On 1 April 1818 Elias Cotton, a U.S. citizen, and resident of Boston, testified that in the War of the Revolution in April 1779 he entered the naval services of the United States from sometime in the fall of 1780 he served as a seman and topman on the frigate Deane commanded by Captain Nicolson, and left the services in fall of 1780. By reason of his reduced circumstances and poverty he was in need of assistance, being now age 62 years. (This would make his birth year about 1856.) Elias signed his name before William Westmore.

Joseph Moncreeff testified that he was a boy on board the frigate Deane and that he well knew that Elias Cotton had served for "more than nine months uninterruptedly." Dr. Peter Saint Medard of Boston also testified that he had been a surgeon's mate on the Deane and that Elias parties and credible witnesses.18 Elias Cotton again applied for assistance on 8 July 1820 stating that he was 71 (two years after he was 62), a rope maker living in Boston. He stated that he "enlisted in the month of June 1781 as nearly as he can recollect in the United States frigate Dean Commanded by Captain Nicholson and served on board said frigate until the Spring of 1783 in ...when he was honourably discharged but not in writing. The above dates are as near as he can recollect. He made his original application on the first of April 1818 and the number of his pension certificate is 11,003. This statement was sworn before John Davis, Judge of the Massachusetts District Court. Elias Cotton was granted a pension based on the Pension Act of 18 March 1818. He received $8 a month commencing on 1 April 1818; the pension was issued 24 May 1819 and was to be retroactive to 1 April 1818. He was paid $137.03 in arrears.

Robert F. Hoke, a farewell to his command.

Robert H. Waterman-Ohio-Indiana-Kansas.

Here is a man of mystery I first ran across him while was doing some research on the pension rolls of Kansas.  I liked the name and looked him up in the National Park Service, and found there was only one he was listed in the 31st., Indiana Infantry Co. A., from here the mystery began.  His record showed that he enlisted in the 31st, in 1861, as a Sergeant and was already veteran and was later commission a Captain in June of 1865.  I thought I would see if I could fine him in any battle reports in the official records ( O. R. ), I found two short paragraphs on him, and the mystery continues.  The report was from a Colonel of the 31st., and told of Captain Waterman's deeds, this report was recorded in 1862, but how can that be as he wasn't commission a Captain till June of 1865.  It was the right Waterman as he was the only one in company A. 

I went to the site of ( Find a Grave ), and found him there he was buried in the Topeka Kansas Cemetery, but there was no mitilary information.  I called the cemetery but got no answer I had fore gotten about the Labor Day weekend.  So I called the ( Topeka Room ) at the Topeka Library to see if by chance they may have his obituary and they did.  It will be reprinted here before this page is done.  But the library give me another mystery they read some of the info, and it said he was enlisted as a private in a Ohio regiment.   Upon hearing this I thought I had the wrong man.  But then they told me he was from Atchison Kansas and had a business there at on time.  Well I new I had the right man, for that's where I first got the name.  All I can do is give you all the facts and maybe a family member can put a little light on this mystery.

Authors Note.  Well it looks like his obituary clear up some of the mystery.  But what was he doing in Ohio and what regiment and company was he in.  And how was he a captain in 1862, when wasn't promoted till June of 1865.  There seems to be some mysteries still.
