Generation No. 5
122. Ida6 Sutphin (Jannetje5 Van Mater, John4 Van Metre, Neeltje3 Van Cleef, Jan2, Van Cleef1) was born
March 18, 1754 in Hunterdon Co., NJ, and died March 28, 1818 in Hunterdon Co., NJ. She married John Schenck
October 11, 1770, son of Garrett Schenck and Mary Van Syckle. He was born May 26, 1750 in Larisons Corner, NJ,
and died August 22, 1823 in Larisons Corner, NJ.
Notes for John Schenck:
The body of Captain John Schenck rests in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery near Larisons Corner, on the Old York Road,
between Larison's and Reaville, a few miles from Flemington, Hunterdon Co., NJ, marked with a bronze plaque, to
commemorate his courage and foresight on December 14, 1776, that saved that part of the county from being overrun
by British troops. Captain Schenck, who participated in the Battle of Monmouth, served with the Third Regiment of
Hunterdon County Militia from 1775 to 1783. A farmer and prominent citizen of the vicinity of Larisons Corner, he
was at home on leave in December of 1776, before the Christmas Night Battle of Trenton, when neighbors spread the
alarm that mounted British soldiers were heading for Flemington. This advance guard of light-horsemen was part of a
detachment of 500 that were engaged in plundering the countryside around Trenton. At Flemington they destroyed or
carried away army supplies, and while so engaged Captain Schenck mustered the few available men and arms in the
neighborhood and assembled them in the woods along the road near Larisons, where they surprised the British
returning to Trenton. The "Historical Collections of New Jersey" thus describe the skirmish:
The Americans poured in a fire upon them, each man taking to a tree, or running from tree to tree, while the Captain,
shouting at the top of his voice, gave the impression of his being at the head of a considerable army. The one man to
18 March 24, 2004
fall in the encounter was their leader, Cornet Francis Geary, of the 16th Regiment, Queen's Light Dragoons, who lost
his life while attempting to rally his men. He was a son of Admiral Sir Francis Geary, Baronet of the British Navy.
The Hunterdon County Historical Society has a copy of the letter of sympathy written by Lord Cornwallis to Admiral
Geary on the death of his son.
This clever deception by Captain Schenck, combined with the sudden surprise, soon put the British to flight, and no
further pillage was reported, except the robbing of children on the way to school to get their dinners. The main body
of 500, apprised that the woods were full of Americans, hastened back to Trenton.
The Captain's tombstone, standing beside that of his wife, is inscribed: "In memory of Captain John Schenck, who
departed this life August 22, 1823, aged 73 years, 2 months and 27 days."
