lienjamin Sumner came to Claremont about 1767; was selectman in ijCv),
town clerk, and a large owner as proprietor of rights in the town and rej)-
resentative to the legislature in 1 7 S4-8 5-93-94. He was not an ardent sup-
]5orter of the American cause during the Revolution, which doubtless had
much to do with his not having attained more imjiortant positions, as he
was a man of marked ability and C[ualified to serve. He lived at what is
now known as the ''Cupola farm."

The two boys were standing in an open doorw.iy during a hard thunder
shower. Directly over their heads hung an old musket. This is supposed
to have attracted the lightning. A numher of other people were in the
room at the time, and all were stunned. The lightning played curious
pranks with the furniture ; a single long sliver was taken by it out of a
hard wood table, doing it no other damage. The house where this occurred
stood in what was called "I'unkshire," near the old (Irannis homestead, in
West Ciaremont.
