The Severance Genealogy by Dewsnap incorporates the Rev.'s genealogy and
elaborates on it. There are still, however, many holes.
I think this might be what you seek:
JOHN/ABBA (Tabitha, Daniel, Ebenezer, John, John)
bpt 18 July 1762 at Springfield West, Mass. Only his mother, Tabitha was
listed as a parent. Tabitha married to Asa Miller, 12 Dec 1765, [MA
VR-Springfield] and probably died young as Asa Miller remarried to Eunice
Shircoy as his second wife, Springfield, Ma. [DAR LR Vol 15 p 74]
John/Abbe was mustered by Col. Enoch Hall at Temple, NH on 15 July, 1779 for
Continental Service of one year. His Rev. War Pension Request #W2643
indicates that he later traveled back to Springfield, MA to visit.
He died 23 Jan 1831 at Wallingford, VT
John/Abbe married Eunice Chase, both residents of Newbury Ma 12 Oct 1781.
[Mass VR-Newbury]. Eunice Chase, born 24 Jan 1760, daughter of Aquila Chase
