    Notes:

    Name:
    The New York Genealogical and biographical Record:

    To distinguish him from an older David Hait in the area, this David was known as "David Hait Jr.," until 1762, when the elder died, and afterwards as "David Hait Sen". He was also known as "Captain David Hait".

    In November 1759 the General Assembly of Connecticut appointed David "Hoit" to be a lieutenant of "the military company in the parish of Stanwich." In May 1773 he was appointed "Captain of the company or trainband in the society of Stanwich in the ninth regiment in this Colony." He continued in this role as the revolutionary War began. As shown below, David's sons Aaron and Frederick and his son-in-law Gideon Palmer also served in the 9th Regiment, Frederick in his father's company, but Aaron and Gideon in Captain Smith's. Captain David Hait's company of Col. Mead's 9th regiment marched to New York City 13 August 1776. David requested permission to return home to Connecticut several days after arriving in New York. He said that his wife had died, leaving his family "in Difficult Circumstances." He left his unit believing he had such permission, but was returned as a deserter.

    In May 1777, a committee of the Connecticut General Assembly recommended that "David Hait Junr. of Stamford Capt: of a Military Company in sd. Town...ought to be sent for to appear before this Assembly to answer to the...Allegations against (him)." He stood before the committee 1 October 1777, and after hearing his explanation, the General Assembly ordered that Hait "pay the Cost arisen in the premises allowd. to be two pounds, one shilling & six pence cash...that Exn. issue against them...for the same."

    He ma be the private David Hait on a company pay roll dated 1779 in Stamford, serving 26-27 February under Captain Reuben Scofield in Mead's 9th Regiment, and on a company pay roll, serving 18 June to 18 July (year not stated) under Captain Reuben Scofield, in the 9th regiment commanded by John Mead. There are other younger David Haits in the area, but this could be the former Captain David Hait, stripped of his rank.

    On 3 May 1783 fifty-four "inhabitants of Stamford & Greenwich, within Stanwich Society, in sd State" signed a petition to the General Assembly asking for relief from taxes. they claimed they had suffered losses from "expos(ure) to the continual inroads of the Refugees station'd at Westchester." Among the signers were David Haut and his so Frederick Hait, as well as known neighbors and associates of the Haits: William White, Jacob White, John Todd, John Mackay (a witness to David's will), Jonathan Waring, and Benjamin Brush.

    On 18 May 1784 David purchased a tract of confiscated land...

    Sylvanus Hait, David's younger brother, was a Loyalist in the Revolutionary War and moved to New Brunswick, Canada, in 1785, where he received a land grant. the confiscation of his estate and that of another brother, James, were recorded among the probate records of Stamford.
