Ezekiel Stone (M)
b. 27 March 1743, d. 9 December 1832
Pop-up Pedigree

     Ezekiel Stone Ezekiel filed a claim for a Rev. War pension, on 1 Apr 1818 in the town of
Chelsea, County Orange, Vermont, USA. He had enlisted in the summer of 1779 at
Fishkill, New York, and was a soldier in the army at the time (which army, it does not state). He served under Lieutenant George Frost of the 2nd New Hampshire
Regiment, commanded by Colonel George Reid of Londonderry, New Hampshire. He also served under Captains Samuel Cherry and Noah Robinson. He was honorably discharged at Fishkill in June of 1783. His pension was granted and first payment of eight dollars was made 4 Sep 1818 thru 9 Dec 1832, which was listed in part of the record as his death date. It is safe to assume that he died in late 1832. (Some note date as 9-Mar-1832, which may make more sense, as payments rarely stop the exact day of death!)
Ezekiel was of Plainfield, New Hampshire when on 18 sep 1830 at age 87, he gave power of attorney to Benjamin Webb of Windsor, Connecticut, to 'demand and receive from the secretary of war of the United States, a warrant for the quantity of land due to me by the United States.' this attorney was (I believe) authorized to sell this land grant for cash. The land grant was 100 acres and was given Land Warrant #1677. This was all in response to a query from Annie P. Corson, of Framingham, Mass. in 1935. Also noted, was another Ezekiel Stone in Rev. War from east Tennessee. ..... And now... The rest of the story!

The Ezekiel Stone from Henniker's history... About 12-apr-1776, Ezekiel signed the association test in Henniker... Swearing to defend the colonies against the British Forces. On 5-Jul-1777, he enlisted at Hamilton, New Hampshire for 3 months and most likely fought at the battle of Bennington 16-Aug-1777 in Capt. Bagley's Co. under (then) Col. John Stark. On 06-Aug-1778, he again enlisted for 3 months with the army in Rhode Island. He apparently was also in the Battle of Bunker Hill. According to Henniker history, he was out of there before 1800.

Curious to know the connection between Ezekiel or James and Wyman Stone of Plainfield, NH in 1860, as follows:
Wyman, 65, m, NH (b. 07-Jul-1794, Plainfield, NH, d. 10-Aug-1875,

Amy, 63, f, NH (Amy Pierce - m. 05-Feb-1816, Plainfield)

Charles, 1, m, VT
and then the BROCK family

Thomas, 11m, NH

Other Wyman children include Erastus Wyman Stone, b. @1818, and Levi Freeman Stone, b. 08-Oct-1830, d. 28-Nov-1879)

We DO know (according to AWT genealogical data) that Wyman was son of Levi Stone and his wife Sally. Levi having been born in 1766 at Groton, MA, and died 05-Jun-1803, at Plainfield, NH. Levi was s/o Abel Stone (09-Apr-1742 - 15-Jun-1835) and Lydia Whittaker (b. 02-Oct-1739, d. 03-Apr-1812). He was naturalized; Cooper. He 2ND NH REGIMENT, UNDER COL REID, SEE TEXT.

From 'Nova Scotia Immigrants to 1867 - Volume I'
'Fritz, Jacob. Pennsylvania Loyalist; near Port George 1783 (390:163)'

The following from the historic accounts of Port George, Annapolis:

'Two Fritz brothers came from England to Saint John on a vessel. One remained in Saint John and the other Jacob came across the Bay of Fundy in an open boat and landed on the Port George shore in 1783. Children of the brothers went to Boston and they and several descendants are buried in the Mount Vernon Cemetery, Arlington, Mass.'

Joseph Brown (M)
b. between 12 June 1771 and 1774, d. 13 September 1853
Pop-up Pedigree

     Joseph Brown On the 1771 or 1774 debate, there are two good possibilities. First, that the exact day/month apply to one of two births, one in 1771, and later in 1774, with the Joseph b. 1771 having died in infancy. If such IS the case, seems HIGHLY unlikely that it was exactly three years to the day from when the first Joseph was born, until the second. Another, probably easier to believe theory is the chance that the 4 and 1 were close enough in someone's handwriting style, that the first transcribers were unable to determine, with any certainty, if that last number WAS a 1 or a 4. He was born between 12 June 1771 and 1774 at Mount Hanley, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was the son of Thomas Spencer Brown and Mary (Starrett) Starratt. Joseph Brown married Susanna Amelia Dunn, daughter of John (Dun) Dunn , Jr. and Grace (Kelley) Kelly, on 13 December 1795 at All Saints Anglican, Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Joseph Brown was buried in 1853 at Mount Hanley, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada. He died on 13 September 1853 at Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Pop-up Pedigree

     Her married name was Brown. Susanna Amelia Dunn In LDS 'Pedigree' files, it also lists a Susanna Dunn, of Wilmot, marrying, in 1848, at Wilmot, to a William Wallace Starratt (is this a 2nd marriage?).

Due to disparity in ages of John & Grace, and Susanna, believe there may be a generational mixup. That the son of John & Grace, John (III) may be a better possibility for Susanna's father. Will leave as her brother, until more information is available to make a solid connection. She was born on 20 October 1776 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. She was the daughter of John (Dun) Dunn , Jr. and Grace (Kelley) Kelly. Susanna Amelia Dunn married Joseph Brown, son of Thomas Spencer Brown and Mary (Starrett) Starratt, on 13 December 1795 at All Saints Anglican, Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada.

     Joel Farnsworth was buried at Pine Grove Cemetery, Middleton, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. He Joel is said to have had 11 daughters. The 'Ward Genealogy' shows Joel and all his siblings as born in Groton. Some records show him born in Nova Scotia. Since Jonas, his father, never appears to have made the move north, it is indeed more likely that the Farnsworth children were born in Groton. However, it is also more likely that Joel married in Nova Scotia, even to Abigail,his first wife. Most assuredly to his 2nd wife, Sarah. He married Abigail Fales, daughter of Benjamin Fales and Rachel Bassett, at Nova Scotia, Canada. Joel Farnsworth was born on 28 May 1759 at Groton, Massachusetts, USA. He was the son of Jonas Farnsworth and Thankful Ward. Joel Farnsworth died on 11 August 1843 at Nova Scotia, Canada, at age 84.

From resources online, the marriage date of her parents is 6 years after her birth. I would suspect, if both dates are correct, it may be she was born to an earlier wife of Benjamin's ??? Her married name was Farnsworth. She was born on 6 May 1762 at Walpole, Massachusetts, USA. She was the daughter of Benjamin Fales and Rachel Bassett. Abigail Fales died on 30 July 1826 at age 64.

Amasa Chamberlin (M)
b. between 14 April 1747 and 1748, d. 18 April 1826
Pop-up Pedigree

     Amasa Chamberlin Originally had birthdate listed as 01-Jun-1748, but with Mark's inputs, that date may have been a baptismal date. So, will leave it in the notes section for later clarification. Private in John Alger's Company of Vermont Militia. The 1790 Census shows Amasa as having 1 male over 16, 4 males under 16 and 4 females in his household. If born in Colchester, VT, it is just north of BURLINGTON!!! Believe the Connecticut Colchester a more likely possibility, based on migration patterns of the time and of other Strafford families. May be the same Amasa Chamberlin listed as a private in roll box 49, NH, found in the Nat'l Archives Record Group 93 M246. In 1790 Census, listes as 1-4-4, total 9. This makes sense, since eldest son Amasa was likely out of the house by then, and the 9th child, Fanny, wasn't born until August of 1790.

Since he died at age 78, in the same month as his listed birth, he was born in either 1747 or 1748. The date of death on the headstone reads, upon closer inspection, the 18th of April. He was christened at American Revolution (Colonist). He was born between 14 April 1747 and 1748 at Colchester, New London, Connecticut, USA. He was the son of William Chamberlin and Jael Davis. Amasa Chamberlin married Molly Briscoe, daughter of William (Briscoe\Briscow) Brisco and Dinah Cutting, on 12 January 1772 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. Amasa Chamberlin died on 18 April 1826 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA.

Molly Briscoe (F)
b. circa 1748, d. 20 January 1824
Pop-up Pedigree

     Molly Briscoe Seen listed born 1748 and 1757... unsure which is the more accurate. On her gravestone, it states she died at age 67, which would put her year of birth closer to 1757 than 1747/48. Perhaps, somewhere back in time, another researcher's math was just a bit off, and it 'appeared' better as 1748, as she'd have been 14 vs. 15/16 when she married Amasa, AND, he was b. 1747, so 'closer' in that regard, as well. SO, either the marker is incorrect (quite possible), or she WAS born closre to 1757. Her married name was Chamberlin. She was buried at Kibling Cemetery, Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. She was born circa 1748 at Woburn, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA. She was the daughter of William (Briscoe\Briscow) Brisco and Dinah Cutting. Molly Briscoe was born in 1757 at Lebanon, Connecticut, USA. She married Amasa Chamberlin, son of William Chamberlin and Jael Davis, on 12 January 1772 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA. Molly Briscoe died on 20 January 1824 at Strafford, Orange County, Vermont, USA.

Henniker Town History says Thomas arrived at Henniker in June of 1763, from Marlboro, MA, settling in the southeast part of town. There is reason to believe that this line descends from John/Simon/Deaon Gregory Stone, who arrived on the American Colonial shores @1639, the first two being settlers of Guilford, CT. He was born on 5 July 1719 at Gloucester, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA. He was the son of Hugh Stone , Jr. and Dorothy (Kezar?) Keziah. Thomas Stone married Rebecca Johnson, daughter of Joseph Johnson , Jr. and Hannah Barker, on 22 June 1742 at Haverhill, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA.

Samuel Bent (M)
b. 1 March 1739, d. 1 July 1821
Pop-up Pedigree

     Samuel Bent Went to Nova Scotia in 1760.

NOTE: Information on ancestry of Samuel Bent has two possible paths. The first, is listed here, based on information from some Bent family researchers, but, differs from that of Calnek's History of Annapolis, in which the differences begin with Samuel's date of birth (still married Rachel Ray, sister of Moses Ray), children remain the same, and, in effect, his EARLIER ancestor, John Bent, is likely the same referenced by Calnek, but his ancestry is entirely different, as follows:

Calnek:

'Samuel Bent was born 15-Aug-1743, (son of Peter, son of Hopestill, son of Peter, son of David Bent) son of John Bent, the immigrant ancestor.' (Have also seen .. Peter, Peter, John (vice David)).

He lists them using the generational numbers, but I've 'spelled it out' here, for clarification.

I have no doubt that the Samuel born 1743, could well have been descended from John in this manner, though, since the birthdate I've also seen listed as 1739 indicates there could have been two Samuel's of roughly the same age, with similar ancestries (going far enough back). I suppose, in another 'scenario', the Samuel who married Rachel Ray was born in 1739, baptized in 1743 (though that is not how the date is presented). There have been errors found in Calnek's history in the past, and suspect this COULD be one of them, but am providing both 'paths' in hopes of offering two different views on how Samuel DID descend from John. (July-2003).

In 1759, Samuel Bent was serving under Wolfe at the battle of the Plains of Abraham. When victory was assured, a flag-staff was called for. Young Bent, being a mechanic was detailed to procure one from the tall, straight fir trees which lined the heights, while others dug a hole to set it in. In their haste they forgot to reeve the necessary lanyard before raising the pole. Several tried to climb it and failed, but Samuel was able to climb the pole, carrying the line in his teeth. Because of this accomplishment, he was awarded the honour of raising the flag of victory declaring the defeat of Quebec. His handsaw and sash are still in the hands of Bent descendants.

Samuel had a cousin who also 'removed' to Annapolis:

David Bent was born at Sudbury, Massachusetts on 18 March 1739. Although David Bent's father Micah, did not emigrate to Annapolis, Micah was listed in the initial grant for the Township of Annapolis in 1759. His wife, Mary Felch, was born at Natick, Massachusetts on 9 February 1740.

Some list more children for Samuel and Rachel, to include:
Samuel Nebediah, Seth, Jesse, James, John, Ebenezer, Rachel, Nancy, Elias, and Charles.
I can only vouch for those listed in this database, but accept there may be more. The other possiblity is some of the 'extra' children belong to the Samuel born 1743??? No idea! (Feb-2004). He was buried at Wadeville Cemetery, Granville Centre, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was born on 1 March 1739 at Milton, Massachusetts, USA. He was the son of Ebenezer Bent and Deborah Fairbanks. Samuel Bent married Rachel Ray in 1764 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada. Samuel Bent died on 1 July 1821 at Granville, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia, Canada, at age 82.
