I appreciate your information and everything you said is true. I already know my Abigail was married on May 30, 1810, in the Dutch Reformed Church at Fishkill, NY. I know that the church records state that both Abigail Hunt and her new Husband (Cornelius DePuy) were from Rochester Township in Ulster County. I do also know that her Hunt father was a "light horseman" in the Revolutionary War for eight (8) years. He was a soldier on the side of the colonies, but he was, more than likely, a member of the Ulster County militia also, as you alluded that most or all young men were. It is true, though, that records are not 100% accurate and there are probably a few men listed on rolls who should not have been listed, and there are some men omitted who should have been listed. As you suggest, it will require quite a serious and lengthy amount of searching before I can find her father, if ever. Thank you.
