Newbury, Mass.; born there Aug. 24, 1752, pubUshed May 30, mar-
ried April, 1780, Hannah Hilton of Fitchburg, Mass. She died
181 1 ; he died May i, 1850, aged 97 y., 8 m., 17 days (on tombstone).

Mr. Thurston lived in Fitchburg till after the birth of his son
Enoch, but probably very soon after that he moved to Windsor, Vt.,
where he remained till about 1787, when he removed to Scipio, Cay-
uga county, N. Y. Here his house and its contents, including his
family records, were burned. In 1806 he purchased 700 acres of
land of the Holland Co. in Aurora, N. Y., whither he migrated
with two ox teams, erected a log house, and commenced life in what
was then a dense forest, except about ten acres which had been cul-
tivated by the Indians. Here they experienced all the hardships of
pioneer life. Sometime after the death of his wife he took a horse-
back journey to Massachusetts to visit his mother, but she was not
living. He was a deacon in the Baptist church in Scipio, but after-
ward changed his connection to the Universalist church in Aurora.
He was a man of "good disposition and regular habits.'' He served
in the revolutionary war, and as a substitute for his son Thomas in
the war of 18 12, and was at the burning of Buffalo, N. Y. His large
farm was divided between his sons, Enoch giving $400 for his choice.
He was a staunch Whig in politics. He spent the last days of his
life with his son Thomas, and with him moved to Leoni, Jackson
county, Mich., P. O., Grass Lake.
