Jedediah was among the first to embrace the idea, indicating that he was a man of enterprise. July 2, 1742, he sold his lands in Rochester and Wareham to his brother Butler. The deed, on record at Plymouth, recites that the lands "adjoin the homestead of our honored father Elisha Wing." About the same time, Jedediah sold other lands in Wareham to his father. At this time, Jedediah was a man of the mature age of 45 years, with a family consisting of a wife and four children, Abigail, Matthew, Mehitable and Elihu. In the same year that he sold in Wareham, he purchased lands at Wuaker Hill adjoining those of Abraham Wing. He was a member of the Friends' Society and was among the very first to establish the Friends' Meeting at Quaker Hill and to assist the building of the first meting house there. He settled upon a tract of land about two miles distant from the meeting house, which was not built until 1744. We are fortunate in coming into the possession of a map made by Robert Erskins in 1668-80, of Quaker Hill for military purposes. Washington's headquarters in September, October and November,. 1778, was located about two miles distant from the homestead of Jedediah Wing, which was probably at that time occupied by one of his sons. We reproduce upon page 1520 a copy of this map, and have indicated upon it the location of Jedediah's farm.[CI:1516:?4:CI] Change Date: 6 NOV 1999 Death: ABT 1763 in Quaker Hill, Dutchess, NY Change Date: 1 JAN 1998 Event: death2 (conflicting) 4 Quality: 3 ABT 1763 Change Date: 15 AUG 1999 Burial: Quaker Hill, Dutchess, NY Note: Beyond question, however, both he and his wife Elizabeth are buried in the Friends' burial grounds at the summit of the Hill, where the Wing Reunionists of 1914 erected the tablet to his daughter, Mehitable Wing Prendergast.[CI:1517:?4:CI] Change Date: 1 JUN 1999 ATTR: No Stone

From Toni Nash: JEDEDIAH WING OF ROCHESTER, MASSCHUSETTS
Jedediah Wing (Elisha Wing, Stephen Wing, Rev. John Wing, Matthew Wing) was born at Rochester, Barnstable Co., Massachusetts on January 29, 1696/97. He died about 1763 at Quaker Hill, Dutchess Co., New York. Jedediah (and his wife, Elizabeth Gifford) are both buried in the Friends' Burial Ground at the summit of the Hill where the Wing Reunionists of 1914 erected the tablet to his daughter, Mehitable Wing Prendergast.
Jedediah Wing married Elizabeth Gifford on "18 11mo "called December" 1734.
"A purpose of Marriage between Jedediah Wing of Rochester and Elizabeth Gifford of Plymouth October 15th 1734."
"Jedediah Wing Son of Elisha Wing & Mehittable Wing of Rochester and Elisabeth Gifford daughter of Gershom & Deborah Gifford of Egawam in Egawam the 18th day of the Elventh mo 1734 Called December 1734."
Elizabeth Gifford was born in Falmouth, Barnstable Co., Massachuseet in 1707. She was the daughter of Gershom Gifford and Deborah Bowerman. Elizabeth died after 1787 at Quaker, Hill, Dutchess Co., New York. Elizabeth is buried at Friends' Burial Grounds in Quaker Hill, Dutchess Co., New York.
Jedediah, owning a homestead that adjoing that of his father, Elisha Wing, sold that homestead on July 2, 1842 to his brother, Butler Wing. The reason for the sale of the homestead was so that Jedediah could join the movement of Quakers of Dartmouth heading to The Oblong on the New York and Connecticut line. The deed of the sale of the lands in Rochester are on record at Plymouth, Massachusetts. The deed reads; "the lands adjoin the homestead of our honored father Elisha Wing." At the time he sold land to his brother, Jedediah also sold land in Wareham to his father, Elisha. By now Jedediah was forty-five years old with a family that included his wife and four children; Abigail, Matthew, Mehitable and Elihu.
In the same year that he sold his land in Rochester and Wareham, Jedediah bought land at Quaker Hill that adjoined the land of Abraham Wing. (Abraham Wing was the great grandson of Daniel Wing and Hannah Swift. Abraham was married to Antis Wood.) Jedediah was a member of the Friends' Society and was among the first to establish the Friends' Meeting at Quaker Hill and to assist in the building of the first meeting house that was situated there.
The land that Jedediah settled his family on was about two miles away from the meeting house, which was not built until 1744. A map that was made by Robert Erskins in 1668 - 1680, of Quaker Hill for military purposes indicated that Washington's headquarters during September through November of 1778 were located about two miles away from the homestead of Jedediah Wing. The homestead was probably occupied by one of Jedediah's sons' by that time.
Jedediah Wing and Elizabeth Gifford had the following children:
1. Abigail Wing, born July 14, 173 at Rocester, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts.
2. Matthew Wing, born September 8, 1737 at Rochester, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts, died June 8, 1756 at Rochester at the age of eighteen.
3. Mehitable Wing, born January 27, 1739 at Rochester, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts.
4. Elihu Wing, born August 31, 1741
5. Gershom Wing, born December 2, 1744 (possibly at Quaker Hill, Dutchess Co., Massachusetts)
6. Deborah Wing, born December 6, 1746
7. Elisha Wing, born July 16, 1748
8. Prince Wing, born March 4, 1753
9. Elizabeth Wing, born April 16, 1755
10. Dorcas Wing, born September 4, 1757
