    Notes 
    • Samuel Hazlehurst graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1789. He entered his father's employ and advanced to partner. The firm failed in 1809 due to the "Embargo Act." Later he reestablished himself in the commercial world. For many years he was a member of the First Troop, Philadelphia City Cavalry. He was prominent in the social life of Philadelphia, PA.

      During the Revolution when the British occupied the family home at Clover Hill, He was invited into the south parlour where the Officers were drinking wine. Seated upon the General's knee, my uncle (Samuel) was presented with a glass of wine, and the General said, "We will give you a toast, my little fellow, and you shall have this glass of wine. Drink to the health of King George". The glass was emptied by the little American 'in a moment' "And now you shall have some more, and we will drink your toast, Who shall it be?", "George Washington!" said the child and laughing heartily the glass was emptied by the Officers, who dismissed "the brave little fellow" with praise for his "independence".

      Samuel Hazlehurst joined the City Troop (of Philadelphia, PA) in 1796 and retained his membership until 1810. His grave marker gave his date of death as 11 July 1849 whereas other sources gave the date of death as 7 July 1849.
