Aaron Porter CLEVELAND

Aaron was reared on the Oblong, now Amenia, NY.  His descendants state that he was a colonel or lt.-col. in the American Army in the Revolution and was wounded but never pensioned.  He left NY state quite young and settled first at Sharon
Meeting House, now Delaware City, New Castle Co., DE., and that his son, Horation J., was born near Harper's Ferry while he was moving to what is now Deposit, Delaware or Broome Co., NY.  Either in March, 1791, or March, 1792, he mysteriously
disappeared.  According to varying traditions, he "went to Deposit Village to get a wheel" or "had finished a large building, was paid in Continental money and went to the bank to get it cashed, and that was the last ever heard of him.  It is
supposed that he was murdered for his money."  A later tradition states that he "enlisted and went to Gibralter."  Another that "he was a soldier, taken prisoner, and killed," or "went to sea."
