John the east end. He leaves legacies to his daughters, which are
to be paid "in currant country pay, at currant country price, and

Hannah, Sept. 10, 1685. Mr. Savage says the name appears in 2 Massachusetts

The selectmen objected to the will, on the ground that one c

account of his age, until Dec. 10, 1750.

53. BEJTJAMIN^ Thomas^ John,2 b. in Mansfield, Conn., in
1743. He settled in Dorset, Vt., in 1770, where he was a leading
man, and attained a great age. Hemmingway's "Vermont'' says
he had herculean strength, great business talent, enterprise and
success. He is the author of a Genealogical Narrative, before
referred to, several copies of which are among his descendants.
He had seven sons and seven daughters. The manuscript is dated
Sept. 16, 1829, and was Avritten by his gr. nephew Eleazer. He
was on that day eighty-five years and eleven months old. Benja-
min makes his gr. gr. grandfather Thomas emigrate from England
about 1640. It will be seen that the grandfather of that Thomas
was the emigrant, not far from 1640. It is very common, by
tradition, to place the emigration some generations too late.

lived in Dumnierstown, Windham county, \"t., and moved at an early day to Jamaica, in the saiue county.

Benjamin was born, as we liave seen, in 1743 ; and we place some
reliance upon his tradition, that the family came from Hertford-
shire. He m. Ruth Paddock. I wish his Mss. gave the names of
his own children. He is said to have been a soldier in the devo-
lution. Mr. Charles Baldwin, of Dorset, refers to Mrs. Charles
Fields residing with her half-brother, Hon. R. B. Armstrong, of
Albion, ]Sr. Y., for information of "Uncle Ben's" family. He d.
in 1830, aged 86 \ his wife, "Aunt Ruth," d. aged 68. Her epi-
taph is :

The best of friends; her husband's pride;

The poor man's trust; her children's guide."

several children of his deceased brother John, to wit: Rebecca,
Oliver and William. By a paper filed in Probate at East Cam-

were " now absent," and Jonathan P. Pollard was authorized to
act for them in partition.
