      Ira was named for Ira Allen, one of the founders of Vermont, a sh rewd
      and capable citizen. He was reared a little north of the present vil lage of
      West Poultney, with school and church privileges, in an atmosphere o f
      ardent patriotism.
      After he removed north, his name appears in Dr. Benjamin Moore’s
      account book, Jan. 27, 1804, the first entry, in Champlain Tp.
      The only other records of him are with the U. S. Pension Bureau c on-
      cerning his service in the War of 1812. No other pension was given o n
      Pember service in Champlain, though his brothers doubtless served.
      From pension claim W. C. 1179:
      Ira Pember enlisted at Champlain, Clinton Co., N. Y., and served
      from July 7, 1812 until Jan. 7, 1813 as a private in Captain Straigh t’s Co.
      of N. Y. militia. He married Aug. 16, 1804, in Champlain, N. Y., Sar ah Mc-
      Evers; they were married by William Bement (Bemond), a Justice of Pe ace.
      The age of Ira Pember and the names of his parents are not shown, no r the
      names of said Sarah’s parents. Ira Pember died April 26, 1849 in Ely ria,
      Lorain Co., Ohio. He had resided there many years with his wife and
      children.
      Sarah Pember, the soldier’s widow, applied Jan. 13, 1851, for th e bounty
      land which was due under Act of 1850.——She was then a resident of Ca rlisle,
      aged sixty-three years.—She was allowed 80A. of bounty land on warra nt
      No. 19089. She applied July 20, 1855, for the additional bounty lan d which
      was due under the Act of 1855.-—was allowed 80A. of bounty land on w ar-
      rant No. 47283. She was living in Lorain Co., 0., in 1857.
      Sarah Pember, Ira’s widow, was allowed pension on account of his
      service in the War of 1812 on her application executed Apr. 28, 1871 . She
      resided then in Mattawan, Van Buren Co., Mich.
      The soldier and his wife Sarah had children, some of whom were li ving
      in 1851, but their names were not stated.
      In 1857, Ervin Pember and William Pember, nephews of Sarah Pember ,
      resided in Lorain Co. It was stated then that she was at the residen ce of
      Ervin Pember.
      In 1851, when Sarah Pember made application for bountyland, Elish a
      Pangborn and Salmon Pangborn made af?davits in her behalf. One Betse y
      Pangburn of Lorain Co., Ohio, stated in 1851 that she was present a t the
      marriage of Sarah McEvers and Ira Pember in 1804.
      In 1871, when said Sarah Pember made application for her pension,
      Alanson Harrison and Laura A. Stevens, of Mattawan, Mich., witnesse d her
      signature and made affidavits in her behalf.
      No relationship between any of the above-named persons and the
      soldier’s family was stated, except the two nephews.
      The General Land Office, Washington, D. C., could explain the loc ation
      of the bounty land. (Warrant o. 19089 and warrant No. 47288 - 80 - 5 5.]
      The last pension payment, of $8. per month, was made Dec. 5, 1872 , at
      the pension agency at Detroit, Mich. to the pensioner .
      McEvers.
      Sarah's parents sett. in Clinton Co., but the name appears early i n central
      and western New York. One James McEvers deeded to members of the Hollan d Land Co.
      in 1798 and 1801, when title was being acquired for the Holland Purchase.
