OK, now I got my act together. The Peter Dey b. 1758 was b. 25 Apr 1758 and died 22 Nov 1811, and he has a Rev. War marker. The age on his stone was recorded by a transcritionist as 65.7, but this has to be a mistake by those who placed the stone, or by the tanscriptionist. He was married to Elizabeth ______ (see Cranbury cem. list and will abstract of Peter Dey). We have an abstract of his will, dated 23 Jun 1810, has been posted, I think. This is the Peter Dey is "Middlesex Co. heirs to Estates" whose dau. Euphame m. a Hibbetts. He has a brother named Kenneth and a nephew Peter Mount. Peter is undoubtedly the son of William Dey and Margaret (Salter?). Did someone have a Rev. War pension application for this William Dey? I can't find it. I am not aware of any pension application for this Peter Dey.

From "New Jersey Colonial Documents" (I don't know Vol.), p. 108. 1810, June 23, Dey. Peter, of South Amboy, Middlesex, Co.;will of. Wife, Elizabeth, L10; also to her and our two children, all farm whereon I live
and she shall dispose of same to said two children. Son, William, 2/3 part of the farm where I formerly lived and which was my father's, and the other 1/3 part thereof to my daughter, Euphame. My stills and works, and
moveable estate to be sold for benefit of wife and two children. My negro boy, Richard, to be freed when 30. If any of my children should die before 21, survivors to have his share. If my two children should die before 21, then my brother Kenneth, to have L200 more than an equal share (as the same will descend to my brothers and sisters), and I also give my nephew, Peter Mount, L150. Executors-wife, Elizabeth*, James Voorhees, and Fredrick Bucklew. Witnesses-Jno. Van Kerk, John Stults, Thomas Mount. Proved Nov. 29, 1811.
