Hazeltixe, Simeon, prob. s. of Daniel (who d. in Uxbridge between 25
May and 18 Aug. 174 7), was here as early as 1758, when he was a soldier in
the Freneh War, at the age of twenty years. He shared largely in the vicis-
situdes of life. The town voted, 5 Mar. 1764, " to release to Paul Dean Sim-
eon Hazeltine's rate, committed to him to collect, if he never comes in his
reach again." He returned, however, bought a farm 9 Dec. 1771, and in 1774
was elected captain of the minute-men, whom he led to the field on the mem-
orable 19th of April 1775. In 1787 he was so deeply involved in the Shays
Rebellion that he left Hardwick permanently, and retired to Sandgate, Vt.,
which town he represented in the General Assembly in 1794. Nothing is
found on record concerning his family.

Hedge, Elisha, of Shrewsbury, "m. Martha, dau. of Daniel Johnson
of Marlboro', Dec. 30, 1728, admitted to the church here [Shrewsbury] in 1736
from the New North Church in Boston. . . . Chil.: Josiah, bap. July 12, 1730,
and d. in 1733; Samuel, bap. May 14, 1732; Lemuel, bap. July" 7, 1734."

Ward's Hist, of Shrewsburi/, p. 325. Besides these were Elisha, b. , and

Martha, h. , m. Joseph Robinson of New Rutland (now Barre), pub. 7 July

1753. His w. Martha d. , and he m. Mrs. Elizabeth Stratton of Marlb.,

pub. 4 Nov. 1765, who appears to have left him, before his death, and re-
turned to her former home. J]lisha the f. did not confine himself to a single
place of residence or a single branch of business. He was dismissed from the
ch. in Shrewsbury in 1740 to the ch. in AYorcester; he bought 280 acres of
land in Hk. 1745, and a year afterwards 300 acres more adjoining Rutland
(now Barre), " lying on both sides of ]\Ioose Brook," and not long afterwards
became a resident; he was in Marlborough from 1766 to 1769, but returned to
Hk. In various documents he is styled taylor, 1745; shop-keeper, 1761;
trader, 1765, and gentleman, 1767. He sei'ved also as commissary in the
Frencli War, 1755. He d. in Barre; Samuel H. Robinson was appointed ad-
ministrator, and presented an inventory 20 Jan. 1789.

2. Elisha, s. of Elisha (1), by w. Deliverance, had John, b. 12 Oct. 1751;
Mary, b. 4 Mar. 1753; Solomon, h. 3 Mar. 1755, m. Dorcas Smith 8 Mar.
1781 ; Asa, b. 9 June 1756, m. Miriam Dexter 31 May 1780; Daniel, b. 7 Feb.
1758; Samuel, b. 19 Dec. 1760. Elisha the f., it is said, was not a brilliant
man; yet he rendered good service to his country, for he was a solilier in the
French War; and in the War of the Revolution he served in the army, with
three of his sons, John, Solomon, and Asa. The date of his death does not
appear; his w. Deliverance d. 4 June 1819, a. 93, having for many years re-
ceived aid from the public.

3. Samuel, s. of Kli^ha (1), gave his life for his country, in tlie French
AVar; he was a corporal in the company commanded by Caj)!. \Villiam Paige,
from 1 Ap. to 11 Sep. 1760, on which day he jjrobably died, as the word
"dyed" was attached to his name; his pay-roll was made up to that date,
and his successor in o(Dce was appointed the next day afterwards.

4. Lemuel, s. of Elisha (1), m. Sarah, dau. of Rev. David White, 5 Nov.
1761, and had Lemuel, b. , grad. H. C. 1784, devoted himself to the busi-
ness of school-teaching; Levi, b. 19 Ap. 1766, grad. H. C. 1792, in wliich he
was tutor 15 years, and professor 22 years; he d. at Cambridge 3 Jan. 1844;

Abraham, b. , a physician in Windsor, Vt., d. 26 Ap. 1809, a. 38; Samuel,

b. , also res. in Windsor; he liad also daughters Sarah ; Susan, m. Josiah

Dunham; Luthera, m. Prof. Daniel Chipman ; and perliaps others. Lkmuel
the f. grad. H. C. 1759, was ordained pastor of the cliurcli in Warwick 3 Dec.
1760. " After a ministry of nearly 17 years, Mr. Hedge died at Hard wick,
Oct. 17, 1777, in the 44"" year of his age. Mr. Hedge was a Tory in the Rev-
olution, or strongly suspected to be such. On tlie 6''' of March, 1775, the in-
habitants voted to disarm him and confine him to the town. He was perse-
cuted most remorselessly." Hist, of Western Mass., ii. 447. I find no record
of his death in Hard wick; and it seems probable that he was buried in War-
wick, where a monument was erected to his memory, bearing an inscription
whicli was copied for me by Rev. John Goldsbury, formerly pastor of the
church in Hardvvick : " In private life he was cheerful, exemplary, and benevo-
lent. In his ministerial character, faithful, solemn, and instructive. In full
belief of the truths he preached to others, he fell asleep in Jesus, with the
Christian hope of rising again to eternal life." His w. ISarah survived him,
and is said to have d. in Middlebury, Vt., in 1808.

5. JoHx, s. of Elisha (2), m. Mary Haskell 7 Sep. 1777, and was prob.
father of Sally, who long had the care of her aged " grandmother Deliverance
Hedge," and who died unm. 15 Ap. 1841; her age was probably 62 years,
