Thanks for putting in that information but there is one problem -- this particular Job was the son of Abraham and Susannah Jackson Carley. Abraham was the son of John and Sarah Sherwood Carley of Fairfield, CT and he was named for John's brother Abraham, who married Susannah Brookins. There were several names that overlapped in that family - Abraham and the Jackson were noted as having registered 3 children and are noted in the Donald Lines Jacobs publications for the history of CT - Joel, born bef. June 26, 1748; Martha, named for Susannah Jackson's mother, Martha Blackman Jackson, born bef. September 09, 1750; and Job, born bBef. February 24, 1754. Other children of this couple were Albert A. Carley/Kerley, b. 175? according to his enrollment papers for the Dutchess County NY Volunteer Militia and Jonathan Carley, b 1757 both noting Wilton, CT as place of birth. Jonathan noted in his application for pension that he had suffered 19 balls through body and clothing during the Battle of White Plaines. A copy can be found at the Sidney, Delaware County, NY web site, where he lived after the Rev. War. Albert A. was my g4gf and served with Jonathan but spelled his name Kerley and his widow, Hannah Covey Carley, was thus initially refused pension, although a grandson, William Scott was able to get the award several years after Hannah had applied and died.
