Capt. Sampson Thurston ^ {Moses,^ Moses,'^ Moses t> Stephen,-
Da?i?'el^), brother of the preceding, and son of Moses and Jane
(Spaulding) Thurston of Orange, Vt. ; born there April, 1789; mar-
ried Hannah Payne, born Aug. 12, 1790, a descendant of Robert
Treat Paine, one of the signers of the declaration of independence.
They both died in Avon, Me., she Nov. 6, 1858, and he Dec. 14, i860.



Mr. Thurston was a farmer and mechanic in Washington, Vt. ; was
in the war of 1812, in the battles of Plattsburg and Chateaugay,
where he received three English bullets thro his clothes, without be-
ing wounded, and at Prescott on the St. Lawrence river, in all which
he proved himself a brave and efficient soldier. He was wounded
in the head and lost a thumb by the bursting of his gun ; discharged
with honors, and received one hundred and sixty acres of govern-
ment land. He was captain of militia for several years after the war
in Washington, Vt. ; moved to Danville, Vt., and from there to
Indian Stream, now Pittsburg, N. H., where he took up new land,
and built a comfortable and pleasant home. In 1835 he moved
to Avon, Me., bought a farm in an almost unbroken forest. By hard
work on the part of all the family he made a nice and happy home.
He was an industrious and honest man, a member of the Free Bap-
tist church in Vermont and the Methodist in Maine. Mrs. Thurston
had great power of endurance, and brought up her children to be pa-
tient" and strictly honest in all things. The wolves were very numer-
ous and troublesome, killing many sheep and frightening the peo-
ple. As he and his wife were coming home from a visit to a neigh-
bor's one evening, on an ox sled, he made a noise like a wolf, and a
whole pack came running after them into the very door-yard. Moose
and deer were plenty there in those days. He came very near being
drowned twice, once in Lake Champlain, by breaking thro the ice,
when walking, and again with a two-horse team and his wife, in the
Connecticut river.
