Married:     2nd., EUNICE SPERRY

Remarks:     Jesse Leavenworth and his wife had the following children:
Melinis Conklin, b. January 4, 1762, d. July 20, 1823
Ruth b. February 25, 1764
Frederick, b. September 4, 1766, d. May 17, 1840 
Catherine, b. 1768, d. June 25, 1815 
Jesse, b. August 1771, d. January 1, 1831
Mark, b. August 31, 1774, d. September 5, 1849 
Henry, b. December 10, 1783, d. July 21, 1834.
The first three were born at Waterbury, the last four at New Haven, Conn.
Jesse  Leavenworth  was the only child of the first wife of Rev. Mark
Leavenworth and was twelve years older than the oldest of his half brothers.
He was graduated from Yale at the age of 19 yrs. and married several months
before his majority.  For a few years after his marriage he lived in
Waterbury, Conn. carrying on various kinds of businesses, and at one time
kept a hotel that stood on the corner of Center Sq. and North Main St.   In
February 1767 he bought a place in New Haven and soon moved his family there.
He soon engaged in commercial affairs and his name  appears among the most
liberal contributors to that enterprise.  There was almost no money to be had
in those days and he heads the list with a subscription of 100 bushels of salt
and appears always as a liberal contributor of succeeding lists.  He was a
Lieutenant in the Gov. Foot Guards, the distinguished Military Company of the
State and of which his neighbor, Benedict Arnold, was captain.  When news of
the battle of Lexington reached New Haven in the early spring of 1775, Arnold
called out his company and asked for volunteers;  forty went, Leavenworth with
them.  (Leavenworth Genealogy pp. 91-94).  When Jesse Leavenworth's father,
Rev. Mark Leavenworth went to Canada as Chaplain in the French war of 1760, he
is supposed to have gone with him and to have held the office of Lieutenant.
He was Captain in the Revolution and was undoubtedly at Ticonderoga in the
Spring and Summer of 1777, when the Fort was abandoned by Gen. St. Clair.
About 1783 he became alienated from his wife and left her, taking the younger
children with him.  He later married his second wife Eunice Sperry.  He went
to Caledonia and at once became a prominent man in that part of the country.
He was one of the patentees of the towns of Dansville and Peacham, October 27,
1786.  He was a member of the Legislature in 1789-91-92 and 98.
