He applied for and was granted a pension in 1819. He died Mar 30, 1826,

Rosannah never married but had a natural child name Mary Ann, still living in
Highland Co., 1857. Hannah never applied for a window's pension, and in 1857
John applied to see if the arrears of what she was due could be paid to him as
her survivor. This was unsuccessful. There was two depositions of interest in
support of his claim. George Shoemaker said! he came from Rockingham Co., VA to
Highland Co. in Nov 1816 and then became acquainted with the Fishbacks.
Umphrey Huffman says that he moved from Virginia to Ohio between 40 and 50 yrs ago
(when he was a teenager), that he "knowed" the Fishback's in Greenbrier Co., VA more
than 50 years ago, and that the Fishbacks moved Highland Co., Ohio about forty yrs ago
to "the neighborhood where I then and now live".
