Reuben Pitcher, husband of Ada Harmon

According to some sources on the internet, Reuben Pitcher, son of Ebenezer Pitcher and husband of Ada Harmon (md. in Rutland, VT 1 Jan 1781), died 23 Jan 1814.

Does anyone know where this date comes from?

According to his grandson, Leman Baker Pitcher, his father Leman Harmon Pitcher had suffered a severe injury to his foot in 1798:

from Re-union of the sons and daughters of the old town of Pompey : held at Pompey Hill, June 29, 1871 :

"In November, 1798, his right foot was nearly severed just below the ankle joint. When climbing a well post to
assist in adjusting the well sweep, his step-father Starkweather, attempted to strike the axe in the post, to assist him in climbing, but his foot slipping just as the axe fell, received the full force of the blow, and his foot was held only by the skin of the heel."

So it appears that Reuben Pitcher died before 1798, and his mother Ada remarried Asa Starkweather, who was living in the neighborhood in Pompey.
