  • Notes 
    • He first settled on the farm now (1869) owned by Titus Lyon
      . He afterwards lived near where the woolen factory stood, which has since been known as the "Hilliard place." He was a soldier of the Revolution, having served quite young, and drew a pension. He was a patriotic man, and always celebrated the Fourth of July with much enthusiasm, and scarcely ever failed to fire off his gun at sunrise on that day. He was a great ball player, a game to which he was greatly attached. He gained his military title by having been a captain in the militia. As a citizen he was trusty, worthy, and honest; and took an active part in the religious interests of the town. He loved peace, and would make almost any sacrifice to maintain it. Although not rich in this world's goods, he was rich in the regard and esteem tendered by his neighbors. He was a Grand Juror three years between the years 1801 and 1816.

      He applied for a pension, 1832, from Rutland Co., VT, for services as private, 1779, in Captain Lay's company, Col. William Worthington's regiment of coast guards.

      BIRTH: The Barbour Manuscript does not give the place or date. Just that he was 83 when he died in 1847.
