Patience DENISON (John, Robert, John, George), born in 1735, was married to John WALWORTH, being his second wife. His first wife was Mary MINOR of Stonington, Conn., by whom he had a son, John W. WALWORTH, born 19 March 1755, and married to Mercy ROGERS. This son of the first wife lived at Hoosic, NY (which in 1791 became part of Rensselaer County, NY). John and Patience also removed to Hoosic. They were there 16 August 1777, when the Battle of Bennington was fought, and he was captured by the Indians, who took him to the British camp.

Mr. Walworth and his wife Patience both died at Hoosic. They had four children. Griswold WALWORTH married Lydia ELDRIDGE; Mary WALWORTH married Samuel WHITMAN and lived in Burlington, NY; Elizabeth WALWORTH married George TIBBITS and lived in Monkton, Vt.; and Abigail WALWORTH.
