Patriot David Janes served the cause of gaining our nation's independence from England while a dedicated member of the military.

A descendant of William Bradford III, the first Governor of the Plymouth Colony, David was born in 1762. In the spring of 1782, he enlisted in the Revolution at Brimfield, Massachusetts. He served for over a year in Captain Killum's Company in Colonel Rufus Putnam's Fifth Massachusetts of the Continental Line.

David later transferred to Colonel Vorst's Regiment, also of the famed Continental Line.

David Janes was discharged from the service at Philadelphia in November of 1783, shortly after the signing of the Peace Treaty in September of that eventful year.

In 1843, Janes certified before a Milwaukee Justice of the Peace that he intended to spend his remaining years with his son, Lewis, in Walworth County. David died in LaGrange Township on September 29, 1848, at age 86. David Janes is buried in this cemetery.
