County, New York.

"Jacobs occupation was Capt. of the Militia. In the mid 1700s, the DeWitt family was
living in Naponock. About 1760, one of the clan, Jacob Rutzen or Rutsen DeWitt, moved
to Port Jarvis. About 1770, Jacob built a stone and frame house near the Neversink
River near current Port Clinton. During the revolutionary War, a stone fort was built near
his house, called Fort DeWitt. The fort is still standing but has been enclosed in a wooden
frame and is not readily identifiable. (In case you are interested, where Highway 209 crosses
the Neversink River, on the south side of the river a road turns off to the right then doubles
back sharply toward the river, then turns north and follows the river for a ways. The old
fort is the first building on the left after the road turns north to parallel the river).
"Jacob also built a grist mill just up stream from where the old boat canal crosses the Neversink
(I think it must be about a mile above where 209 crosses the river.) If you continue driving
north from the fort there is another road that takes off to the left and climbs into the low hills
along the river. We were given directions to a house that is built on bluffs along the river just
above where the old boat cannal crosses the Neversink. From the deck of this house, the
owner (a very cordial lady) can point out the mill's raceway and water Wheel site that was
carved out of solid rock.
"Jacob Rutsen DeWitt died in Mamakating in January 1792. In his will, William Rose is referred
to as Jacob's son-in-law, apparently the husband of Jacob's daughter, Mary.
"Jacob removed to Sullivan (now Orange) County, where he purchased land on the Neversink
River. Was captain of a militia company during the Revolution. His oldest son, Moses, was
one of the surveyors to establish the boundary line between New York and Pennsylvania,
and was County Judge and Surrogate of Herkimer and Onondaga Counties, 1791-94. Moses
died Aug. 15, 1794, in the 28th year of his age. One of Jacob's daughters, named Rachel,
married Col. Robert, of Revolutionary fame." - Dick Rose
He was a member of the rangers guarding frontier Ulster and Sullivan COs. He gave his
stone house on the river Neversink, subsequently called fort Dewitt, as a refuge for women
and children during the revolution.
