Casefile Clues

Who Was this Justice of the Peace in Ontario County, New York?

For an upcoming Casefile Clues article and my own research, I'm transcribing this document and analyzing it as much as possible. We've mentioned this claim of Rufus D. Stephens before.

There is one problem: I am having difficulty reading the name of the justice of the peace and his signature. The document comes from the reimbursement claim for Rufus D. Stephens who served in a War of 1812 unit from Ontario County, New York. The original documents are only in paper format at the National Archives.

Any thoughts?
