Husband Levi Jennings
David Jennings and Sarah Cushman were married 27 December 1763 at New Providence, Essex County, NJ [this information is listed in a Cushman family genealogy that is housed at the DAR Library in Washington, D.C.]. This family started in NJ,
probably resided in Berkeley Co., VA [now WV], moved to Morgan Twp., Washington Co., PA and then migrated to Ohio.




David Jennings joined the Benjamin Stites group that founded Cincinnati, Ohio. David was killed by an indian in August 1793, as documented in several court depositions that can be found in the Draper manuscripts. One account says that his son Henry pulled him out of the river after he was shot.



David's wife Sarah Cushman is a descendant of Mary Allerton, who was the last surviving passenger from the Mayflower.

David Jennings married Sarah Cushman 27 December 1763 in New Providence, Essex, New Jersey

This is a prargraph taken from a letter in Draper Manuscripts.,
The link to the letter in its entirety follows

Mr. Gennings determined to move his family to Columbia in the spring of 1790, and accordingly made the necessary preparations the preceding winter. At the time he made his arrangements to start, he had had all his effects that he intended to take, except such as were wanted for their comfort in cooking and sleeping the last night, placed in the boat the previous day, so as to make an early start the next morning. In the night he dreamed he had performed his trip down the river in safety, but, after arriving at Columbia, had been most horribly killed and mangled by the Indians. He awoke from sleep and told Mrs. Gennings his dream, and appeared, as she said, very much disturbed, and in the morning told her he had concluded to abandon his intention of removing to the Miamies. Mrs. Genning, being a very resolute woman, told him it would be folly in the extreme to abandon the idea of removal on account of a dream, after they had sold their farm" and other property, but all to no purpose, for the more he thought, the greater his reluctance to remove. Finally, finding she could not remove his difficulties by anything she could say, she addressed him thus: " Well, David, if you think you can not with safety go, do you stay here and make another crop, and I and the boys will go to the Miami country, and raise one, and we shall be able to leave if there is danger, and will send you word, and, after hearing from us, if you think you can venture you can follow the next season " The last proposition was agreed upon.

David Jennings was killed by an Indian in a township called
Columbia in Hamilton Co., OH ca. 1793. He died intestate. Sarah (Cushman) Jennings died intestate in Montgomery Co., OH sometime prior to 2 August 1827, but she owned a 160 acre tract of land in Miami Co., OH. Sarah's heirs sold the land to a
third party [recorded in Deed Book 6, pp. 421-423, Miami Co., OH]. I (Patricia Shawker, shawker@smart.net)have a rather poor copy of the deed. Her heirs were:Cyren[i]us Jennings and Mary his wife; Jacob Whitestone and Rhoda his wife (formerly
Rhoda Jennings); Thomas Ross, David Ross, Jacob Ross, and
John Ross (the children of Mary [Jennings] Ross deceased); Henry Jennings; Isaac Dunham, David Dunham, and Jonathan Dunham (the children of Sarah
Jennings] Dunham deceased); Levi Jennings; and Elnathan Cory and Hannah his wife (formerly Hannah Jennings).
