110. j£PTiiA=* Braixeed {Simon*, Ahijalv\ James-, Daniel^) of
Chatham, Middlesex Co., Conn.; m., 1779, Abigail' Mack,
b. April 10, 1760, dau. of Samuel and Lydia (Brain-
erd) Mack. He moved first into Windham, Green Co.,
N. Y., and in 1801 to Luzerne Co., Pa. He was a farmer
bj' occupation, though he served as a sailor for a time
and was sent to Nova Scotia as a government agent. He
served seven years in the Bevolutionary War, and was in
many a hard-fought battle; was taken prisoner by the
British and confined on board of one of those horrid prison
ships, where he suffered all the privations and insults, the
accounts of which are familiar to all readers of American
history.

He was a man of considerable wealth at the time of his death,
which he accumulated by honest and persevering industry.
He encountered almost every vicissitude of fortune, being
in perils often — in the perils by the sea, upon the battle-
field, in the prison ship — yet he lived to a good old age.

In person he was rather above the medium height; strong
and muscular and of good ability intellectually. If energy
and determination would insure success, he seldom failed.
He was a kind neighbor, an exemplary and benevolent
Christiaii. The traveler and wayfaring man enjoyed his
liospitality ; the beggar and impecunious man were relieved
from his purse. Sociable and friendly to all, a capital
story teller, though he always adhered strictly to truth,
never drawing upon his imagination for facts. He was
often called upon for counsel in public matters or to
adjudicate differences between neighbors; was once a mem-
ber of the legislature. Thus honored and respected by all
who knew him, he passed through the world leaving no
stain upon his reputation ; retaining his mental faculties to
the last; always thankful to that Providence*whose good-
ness and mercy had followed him all the days of his life.

He first came to Pennsylvania in 1801, bringing teams, house-
liold furniture, and some farming implements. He pur-
chased a section of land from Colonel Hale, a Connecticut
claimant, and built mills, but the title proving worthless,
lie lost the whole. He then purchased a section of state's
land. He made an opening on the "right bank of the
Wapasoning Creek and built a log house, which he oc-
cupied till 1809, when he built a frame house near the
center of his farm and of the township. The early
Brainerds were all hunters, and two of them crossed the

creek in early winter and killed a deer. The creek was
high, and after they succeeded in getting the deer to the
creek, how were they to get it across the stream, as the
water was high? There was no way of crossing except on
a foot pole, but when nearly over, the wheelbarrow struck
a stake and threw wheelbarrow and all into the deepest
water of the creek, so they got not only a deer but a duck.
Slie was a good nurse for the sick, an excellent cook, and
a Methodist of the St. Paul order who believed in showing
her faith by her works. Mr. Jeptha Brainerd d. July 3,
1825, ae. 71 yrs., at Windliam, Penn. Mrs. Abigail (Mack)
Brainerd d. in 183T.

served on board of a privateer under Captain Tinker of
the United States Navy. He left the army in 1780 on

company and justice of the peace in Haddam, Conn. He

tlers in that town. In 1810 he moved to Washington.
