Searching for Solomon I. Jordan from Cape Elizabeth , Cumberland, Maine

Trying to find if there was two  Solomon Jordan,s, one born in 1744 and another born in 1755?   Which one was a Veteran of the Rev. War?    And which one relocated to Trenton, Maine.    Thanks for any help to clear this up.

The Jordan Memorial says that it was the Solomon born in 1744 who settled in Trenton, and the Solomon born in 1755 who served in the Revolution. His pension file confirms that the latter Solomon was married to Sarah Staples, served in Capt. Dunn's company, Col. Phinney's regiment, and in Capt. Ellis's company, Col. Bigelow's regiment, and died on 15 March 1819 in Cape Elizabeth.
