1. JACOB St. ORES (a.k.a. Jacques Ambale Payant) was born 12 Jan 1759 in St.Ours, Richelieu, Quebec, Canada to Dominique Payant and Marie Louise LaPorte. He came with his older brothers to fight in the Revolutionary War with Major Nicholson's detachment of "French Cadets" at Albany, N.Y. in 1776. He added five years to his age, and told them he was Jacques from St. Ours. They did not understand his French and gave him the name of Jacob St. Ores. He kept this name the rest of his life, and all St. Ores descend from him. His name can be found under Pyon and ST. ORES in the Jefferson County records. He lived in Lyme from 1818 until his death 20 May 1845.
He married 12 June 1781 at Stillwater, Saratoga Co. NY
ABIGAIL POTTER who was born in 1765 in Rhode Island.
