Narrative:A Chauncey R. Johnson placed an ad in the Vermont Centinel on 27 Oct 1809 announcing that he had taken over the stall previously occupied by Moses Jewett, on the north side of Court House Square in Burlington, Vermont, and was now offering saddles and other leather goods for sale. This may well have been the Chauncey Johnson who married Nancy Lathrop.3
Chauncey married Nancy Lathrop, daughter of Thomas Lathrop and Wealthy Ann Cobb, in Burlington, Vermont.2 There is record of a Chauncey R. Johnson serving in the War of 1812 in Burlington, Vermont. He enlisted 20 or 24 Apr 1813, then appears to have enlisted again 17 Mar 1814 in Middleburg, serving until 17 Jun 1815. But he was born about 1800, in Rutland, Vermont, and would seem to have been too young to have been Nancy's husband. Perhaps he was a son of her husband, by a prior marriage?4,5
