AN ARMY DUEL. JENIFFER-GASSOWAY (iii. 638)—This query of Mr. Craig's has remained long unanswered. The Lieut. Daniel of St. Thomas Jeniffer who fought the duel with Ensign Wm. Pitt Gassoway at Legionville in 1793 (the latter receiving a wound from which he died the same day) was doubtless the uncle of the Daniel Jeniffer to whom Mr. Craig refers. This “Daniel” was only two years old in 1793. It is a singular fact that all who bore the name of “ Daniel of St. Thomas" Jeniffer died without issue.

Daniel Jeniffer M.D. of Charles Co. Md. had among other children.
