Major Jacob Van TASSEL led a very colorful life. He and his family lived at Wolfert's Rest in Tarrytown, or Irvington, later the home of Washington Irving. His home was also burned by the British. He enlisted in Capt. Glode Requa's company in 1776. Lieut. under Capt. George Comb in 1778. Captured in Croton and imprisoned about a year. Jacob was prominent among the adventurous spirits who gathered at his house, and under his leadership made frequent raids into the enemy country, a diversion which he enjoyed quite as well as he did farming. Following a successful foray into the refugee territory of Morrisania, the valorous Jacob and his friends retired to Croton, where they had such a good time dividing their spoils, they were easily surprised by the enemy and captured. Presumably the captors enjoyed what was left of the spoils. Washington Irving seems to have had the privilege of listening to the reminiscences of the old hero, whom he embalmed in his humorous tale "A Chronicle of Wolfert's Roost." The "Roost" afterward came into Irving's possession by purchase from the Ferris family, and he christened it "Sunnyside" where he died in 1859.

Shortly after his marriage he returned to Tarrytown and occupied a log house situated on the North Side of a small bay, one mile north of the Old Dutch Church, a place noted for important fishing. He and his family occupied this house until his death, except during the Revolution when he served in the American Army and his family were compelled to move to the upper part of Westchester County.As long as he was able, he worked upon the adjoining farm lands and fished during the season. He served as a soldier in the French and Indian War enlisting 3/15/1759 in Captain William Gilchrist's Company. When the Revolutionary War broke out, he joined the American Army and served to the end. He acted for a time as a ferryman at Verplank's Point NY and was overtaken and made prisoner, placed in the well-known Sugar House in NYC. the first enlisted record of John Van TASSEL was in Captain Abram Ladieu's Company.
