"Jesse Printy's father was a native-born Irishman who served in the Revolutionary War. His(Jesse's)mother was a native of Sweden. Jesse emigrated to Pleasant Twp in 1810 and died in 1882 at 98 years. His wife was a native Pennsylvanian."
"Jesse Printy, another pioneer, was born in Trenton, NJ in 1784 and in 1796 settled in Mason Co, KY. Fourteen years later moved to this township."
There are Prunty's from County Down, Ireland, who show up in Virginia records about the same time period as William Printy. Wonder if there is a connection? Also got word of an Irish Miss Printy who came to the U.S. early this century from County Down. She & husb. had to return to Ireland to settle an aunt's estate, being the last of the Printys there.

Index to Compiled Service Records of Volunteers who Served in the War of 1812 gives an Israel Printy 4th Regt.(Pogue's) Private/Private. Suspect that this is a son who stayed in KY, possibly close to his wife's family as the others moved into Ohio. Look again for a pension.
