was nearly 70 years. Their added ages with that of their parents was 1,272
years. The "ten sons were each over six feet in height."

In the list of men who had registered earmarks for cattle and sheep are the
names of David Newton and several of the Hazens, about 1778. Later, David
Newton and others are appointed to condemn or repair a bridge, as should seem
best to them.

"January 4, 1790. To all whom it may concern: It is hereby certified that
Messrs. Hezekiah Hazen, Thomas Hazen, Solomon Hazen, David Newton and
Erastus Chapman are members of the Church of Christ at Dartmouth College,
which church is Presbyterian in pursuation and discipline, that they and each
of them are in full communion and regular and good standing with us. By
John Smith, Pastor of said church at Dartmouth College." Hanover, N. H.,
January 4, 1790.

It was in accordance with the law that voters — "freemen" should possess some
church connection — one of the then requirements of citizenship.

Mary Hazen 5 , wife of David Newton 1 , was the daughter of Joseph 4 and
Elizabeth (Durkee) Ha^en.* Her father was son of Thomas 3 (Thomas 2 ,
Edward 1 ), and was born June 30, 1717; married December 8, 1740, Elizabeth
Durkee of Norwich, Vt. He removed about 1780, with his sons, to Grand Isle,
Vt., where they were among the first settlers, and where the family has been

* Edward Hazen 1 was the immigrant ancestor. The first mention of the name occurs
in the records of Rowley, Mass. : "Elizabeth, wife of Edward Hassen, was buried, 1649, Sept.
18." He was a man of substance and influence in the town : Selectman seven years, and
judge of delinquents in 1666. In the record of surveys, 1661, he appears entitled to "Seven
gates." These related to cattle rights in the town Commons. The average was three, and
no one could have more than seven. He was buried at Rowley, July 22, 1683. Inventory
of his estate £404 :7 :8. He m. (2) 1650, Hannah Grant (dau. Thomas and Hannah) and
had nine children, all born in Rowley. The fourth was

Thomas Hazen 4 , b. Sept. 30, 1719 ; d. Aug. 19, 1782 ; m. March 7, 1743, Ann Tennet of
Norwich, Conn. He lived in Woodbury (now Washington), Conn. In 1774 he moved to
Hartford, Vt., where most of his sixteen children married and settled. His land, or that of
the family, extended across the town along its north boundary six miles, and included
1,000 acres around the present village of West Hartford. In 1775 he built the first two-
story house there. In 1879 it was still occupied, as it always had been, by his descendants,
Asa 6 , Alien 9 and Charles Dana 7 , who was then the owner. His posterity has been numer-
ous — as also forceful men and women for good in the world — pastors, missionaries, editors
and writers (to one, Henry Allen Hazen, A.M., am I indebted for this reprinted account), and
not least. Gen. William B. Hazen of the L". S. Army, whom we all honor for his service
in the Civil War, particularly the brilliant capture of Fort McAllester, near Savannah, Ga.,
in Sherman's March to the Sea. So many of the posterity of Thomas Hazen* and David
