There is no record of Asa having applied for a pension on his own service, but he did sign a deposition for his brother, Joseph Hewitt, on 23 Aug 1820, attesting to their having served during the war. Asa was a resident of Saratoga Co., NY when he signed the deposition. After the war, Asa settled in Stillwater, Albany Co. (now Saratoga Co.), NY sometime before 1790.
