Notes:
Aden's father died in 1769, when Aden was ten years old.  From documents in the Stonington probate Court: On 5 January 1773, Allen Breed and Stephen Brown, both of Stonington, posted a bond of 500 pounds to make Allen Breen the Guardian of Aden Palmer.

As a young man, Aden served in the Revolutionary War.  According to his pension application, Aden enlisted in Boston in January, 1776, as a private in the company commanded by Capt. Christopher Smith in Col. James Mitchel Varnum's Regt. under General Green, Rhode Island Line, of the Continental Establishment.  Aden participated in the Battle of Princeton, NJ.  He served more than one year, being discharged at Springfield, near Morristown, NJ.  On 11 May 1818, Aden applied for a government pension based on his military service  In his claim, he is listed as a resident of Painted Post, now in "reduced circumstances". He signed his statement with his mark.  Pension Certificate No. 17,434 was issued to him at a rate of $8.00 per month, commencing 11 May 1818.  He received $174.45 in arrears, and a pension until 4 September 1820.  Upon Aden's death, Lois was granted a pension of $40 per annum, commencing 4 March 1836.  She received $160 in arrears and a semi-annual payment of $20.

The Historical Gazetteer of Steuben County, New York indicates that Aden was an early settler to the town of Hornby in Steuben County.  The town was originally founded in 1814.  It states "James S. Gardner, Chester Knowlton and Aden Palmer settled in the "Palmer" settlement in 1816".
