1 8 Dublin Revolutionary Soldiers.

51. Samuel Williams was a private in Capt. Mellen's com-
pany June-July, 1777. Four of his children m. children of
Thomas White, who removed to Cornish, N. H.

52. Eben Woods received coat money in Capt. Samuel Rich-
ard's company. Col. John Stark's regiment, 1775 ; he was in Capt.
John Mellen's company with men from Dublin, June-July, 1777.
His later history is unknown,

53. Oliver Wright. This name occurs so frequently in the
records that it is difficult to decide as to identity. There was a
soldier of this name from Hollis, one from Alstead, two probably
from Marlboro, and possibly one from Dublin, where Oliver
Wright signed the Association Test, 1776, and was on the invoice
list, 1777. Oliver Wright was in Capt. John Mellen's company,
1777. He and his family removed from Dublin.

To the above list are to be added the names of several persons
given in the History of Dublin, p. 149, viz :

Richard Gilchrist, Eli Greenwood, Thomas Green,
James Mills, Robert Muzzey, Jabez Puffer, Henry Strong-
man, Thomas Morse.

The names of some of these persons do not appear upon the
" Revolutionary Rolls " of New Hampshire. This may be due
to a loss of certain rolls, or to their serving in Massachusetts
regiments whose lists do not state the town from which these
soldiers came. Such, I think, is the reason why there is no record
of Richard Gilchrist's service. He is claimed by both Dublin and
Peterboro'. He was taxed in Dublin for a poll tax in 1775, and
in 1776 signed the Association Test there. It is not probable that
he was ever a resident of Peterboro' . There is some evidence
that he and Thomas Green went from Swanzey to join the army
at Cambridge.

Eli (a son of William Greenwood) Greenwood's name is not
found in the New Hampshire Revolutionary Rolls. He died in
Dublin Oct. 8, 1827, aged 76.

Robert Muzzey 's name does not appear there, nor that of Jabez
Puffer, who died, as is believed, in Dublin. Robert Muzzey
probably served in the forces of Massachusetts, from Holliston.
He removed from Dublin to Sandy Creek, N. Y., and died there
Sept. 9, 1 83 1, set. 93.



Dublin Revolutionary Soldiers. 19

Jabez Puffer was a son-in-law of Capt. Thomas Morse. It is
probable that he was a Revolutionary soldier, but positive evidence
is lacking.

Henry Strongman was probably above military age, yet he may
have seen service. His name is not found on the Rolls. He died
in Dublin, 1786.

James Mills served in the company of Capt. William Stilson,
Col. Isaac Wyman's regiment, July-Dec. 1776. He removed from
Dublin to Bethel, Me., 1785, where he was killed by the fall of a
tree, 1790.

Thomas Morse was a member of Capt. Abijah Smith's com-
pany, which went to New York in the summer of 1776. In the
same company appears the name of Eli Morse, who may have
been one of the Dublin Morses.

Thomas Morse was in the company of Capt. Isaac Davis, Col.
Sam. Ashley's regiment, which served at Ticonderoga, Oct. 21 to
Nov. 16, 1776. He was also in Capt. Elisha Mack's company,
June-July, 1777. In 1 778-' 79 he served in the Rhode Island
campaign in Capt. Daniel Reynolds's company. Thomas Morse
(b. 1748) appears to have made his home in Keene, with his
brother-in-law, Daniel Wilson, and served with him in Capt. Jere.
Stiles' s company and was present at the battle of Bunker Hill.
Thomas Morse is said to have removed to Canada.

Thomas Green was in the company of Capt. William Scott
(Peterboro') at Bunker Hill, where he was severely wounded.
He is credited in the rolls to Swanzey and drew half pay as an
invalid from Jan. i, 1776, to Jan. i, 1779. New Hampshire
granted him a pension of 18 shillings a month after 1785. Appar-
ently he resided in Swanzey while drawing his pension. He was
returned in 1780 as 27 years old. His case is described with consid-
erable fulness in the New Hampshire Rolls, vol. XVI., pp. 388-90.
The case of Abel Twitchell, a brother of Capt. Samuel Twitch-
ell, may be typical of that of several others. He returned, it is
said, to Sherborn, Mass., his native place, and enlisted from that
town. It is likely that his return to Sherborn was late in 1775,
or early in 1776. It is, also, probable that he came back to Dublin
some months after the British evacuated Boston, March, 1776.
Abel Twitchell died in Dublin, March 8, 1837.



20 Dublin Rkvolutionary Soldiers.



Regimental and Company Commanders.

A List of Regimental and Company commanders under whom
Dublin men served in the Revolutionary War has been compiled
and short biographical sketches have been added. These notices
are, almost necessarily, very fragmentary and presumably errone-
ous in some details, but they are as correct as the writer has been
able to make them. Additional facts and corrections will be gladly
received. Even these brief accounts will, it is hoped, be helpful
to those who have occasion to make similar investigations in the
early history of the same neighborhood (southwestern New
Hampshire) and ser\^e to prolong the memory of men who deserved
well of their fellow citizens and their country. The difficulty with
which the few, brief data which follow have been secured, clearly
shows that these local leaders and heroes are almost forgotten by
a generation which has entered into their labors.

colonels.

Samuel Ashley of Winchester, who had a house in Ft. Dum-
mer (Hinsdale, N. H.), 1749, was prominent in the civil affairs of
western New Hampshire and took part in the campaign against

removed, 1782, to Claremont where he died. In 1775 he com-
manded the militia of the istli district.

Nahum Baldwin of Amherst, was paymaster in 1776; he com-
manded a regiment raised to reinforce Washington's army in the
fighting about New York during the autumn of 1776 (Sept. -Dec).
He was treasurer of Hillsboro count}^, 1776 ; a justice, and trustee
of the confiscated estate of Zaccheus Cutler, an absentee (Tory).

ers which was mustered in, July 29, 1775, and marched in Sept.
of that year to join Gen. Schuyler in an expedition against St.
Johns (Canada). In January, 1776, he was ordered to raise a
regiment of 8 companies to join the "Northern Continental

Army," He also served as commander of a regiment in the
northern army from Nov. 15, 1777 to June i, 1779, and was an
eflScient officer; though cashiered in July, 1776, for alleged
misconduct at the Cedars (Canada), (Am. Archives, I, pp. 158-70,
231, 801), he was afterwards reinstated in command.

Jonathan Brewer of Waltham (Mass.), b. 1726, at Fram-
ingham. He had seen much service in the French and Indian
wars. Two of his brothers were colonels in the Massachusetts
line. Col. Brewer as a regimental commander was succeeded by
Col. Asa Whitcomb. Col. Brewer was stationed at Prospect Hill
(Somerville), Oct. 6, 1775, and had been present at the battle of
Bunker Hill (?) His later history is unknown, except that he was
in service in 1776, and, June 4, 1776, petitioned for promotion.

Joseph CiLLEY of Nottingham, b. 1735; d. 1799. He served,
1758, under Ma j. John Rogers and was made sergeant; later he held
a Captain's commission from the ro3'al government. In the Revo-
lution he distinguished himself at Bemis's Heights, Stony Point
and J^Ionmouth, and made a brilliant record as a soldier. In 1786
he became the first Major General of the N. H. militia (see N. H.
S. P. XXI, 1790-94).

Ephraim Doolittle, commanded a regiment which was in
camp at Prospect Hill, Oct. 6, 1775, and in Sullivan's brigade.
He was Colonel of the 24th Mass. regiment for 3 months and
15 days, beginning, April 24, 1775, and was stationed, also, at
Winter Hill. Of his later history nothing is known.

Enoch Hale of Rindge, b. 1733 at Rowley, Mass. ; was long
a resident of Rindge, removed to Walpole and died at Grafton,
Vt., 1813. He was a veteran of the French and Indian wars,
having served in Capt. Bagley's company of Col. Nathaniel
Meserve's regiment, 1757 and 1758. Col. Hale was in command
of the 14th military district of N. H., and took part in the
R. I. campaign. He was the first magistrate in Rindge and much
employed in public affairs by the citizens of that town.

Chimney Point (opposite Crown Point), July 8, 1776.

Thomas Heald of New Ipswich, b. Concord, Mass., 1733;
d. at New Ipswich, 1806. He commanded a company of "men
who marched from New Ipswich before daylight on the morning
of April 20, 1775," and served 13 days. He commanded a regi-
ment of seven companies to reinforce Ticonderoga, Oct. 22-Nov.
16, 1776, and again, Jan. 29-July 12, 1777, for a similar purpose.
In 1789 he was one of the petitioners for the Academy at New
Ipswich.

Col. Hercules MooNEY of Durham, b., Ireland, about 1715; d.
April, 1800, at Ashland, N. H. ; had been a captain in
the expedition against Crown Point, 1757, and was a mem-
ber of the Committee of Safety, 1778-79. He was Lt. Col.

Col. in Rhode Island for six months, 1779-80, engaged in defend-
ing that state.

Moses Nichols of Amherst, b. in Reading, Mass., June 28,
1740 ; d. May 23, 1790. Moses Nichols was a physician, and a
prominent citizen of Amherst. He led a regiment in the Ben-
nington campaign and again, in 1778, in the Rhode Island cam-
paign. Col. Nichols was the commanding officer of the 8th
military district, and was often moderator in Amherst town meet-
ings and five times a delegate to the Provincial Congress at Exeter,

Enoch Poor of Exeter, b. Andover, Mass., 1737 ; d. Sept. 8,
1780, some reports say, killed in a duel by a French officer ; Jos.
Bass says, N. H. S. P. , XVII, ' 'he died of a putrid nervous Fever."
He had been appointed Colonel, May 23, 1775, of the 2d regiment,
and was made Brig. Gen., Feb. 21, 1777. He took part in the
Canada expedition, in the campaign against Burgoyne in 1777, was
at Valley Forge, and was active in the campaign against the Six
Nations in 1779. The following year he commanded a brigade of
light infantry under Lafayette, and showed himself an excellent
officer, whose loss was deeply felt in the American army. It is
noteworthy that Gen. Poor had seen no service previous to May
23, 1775, when he was commissioned colonel. At Saratoga his
brigade included the three N. H. regiments, with others. He
settled in Exeter about 1765 and was a shipbuilder.

James Reed of Fitzwilliam, b. Woburn, Mass., 1724 ; d, 1807,
at Fitchburg, Mass. ; removed from I^unenburg to Fitzwilliam,
where he was the second settler and most prominent citizen. He
was a brave and efficient officer. At Bunker Hill he led one of the
N. H, regiments (3d) and remained its commander until in con-
sequence of a severe illness contracted in the service during the
late summer of 1776, he became blind and was retired. Congress
made him a Brig, Gen., Aug. 9, 1776. He was succeeded by Col.
Alexander Scammel. For a time he resided in Keene and pre-
sented, in his blindness, a pathetic figure which appealed strongly
to public sympathy.

George Reid of lyondonderry, b. 1733 ; d, 18 15. He held a
captaincy under Col. Stark and was present at Bunker Hill. Jan.
I, 1776, he was captain in the 2d(?) N. H. regiment, became its
Lt. Col. in 1777, and in 1778, its colonel. He was present in many
battles ; among these were lyong Island, White Plains, Trenton,
Brandy wine, Germantown, Stillwater, and Saratoga. He took an
active part in the campaign against the Six Nations and spent the
winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge. Col. Reid was a justice of the
peace in Londonderry, and was appointed Brig. Gen. of militia,
1786. At the end of the Revolutionary War the small remnant
of the N. H. troops was stationed in northeastern New York and,
under the command of Col. Reid, defended the valley of the
Mohawk from the raids of Indians and Tories.

Paul Dudley Sargent of Amherst, b. Salem, Mass., 1745 ;
d. at Sullivan, Me., Sept. 28, 1827. His father was Col. Epes
Sargent, a well-known citizen of Gloucester, Mass. He was sent
as a delegate from Amherst to the first four sessions of the Pro-
vincial Congress at Exeter, N. H. Oct. 6, 1775, Col. Sargent was
in command of a regiment near Boston, which had at least two
N. H, companies (William Scott's and Jere Stiles's) and many
N. H. men scattered through other companies. Col. Sargent was
wounded at Bunker Hill, and he may have commanded there the
extra companies of Col. Stark's regiment. Col. Sargent had en-
deavored to raise a regiment, but had not raised a full quota of com-
panies before the 1 7th of June, 1775. There is some obscurity about
his position in the N. H service, possibly he was Col. of a Mass.
regiment, or of troops from both N. H. and Mass, Stark and



24 Dubinin Revolutionary Soldiers.

Reed were better known than Sargent in N. H., and men enlisted
more readily under them. It is probable that his commission was
issued by Mass. He commanded a brigade in the campaign about
New York, 1776, and took part in the battles of Harlem, White
Plains, Trenton and Princeton. After the Revolution he was
judge of probate, and of common pleas, in Hancock county. Me.

Isaac Wyman of Keene, b. ; d. . Col. Wyman was

a conspicuous figure in the early history of Keene. He had fought
in the French War (Crown Point expeditions of 1757 and 1758)
and, at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War, was advanced in
years and therefore appears in military affairs, chiefly at the open-
ing of the struggle. Col. Wyman led a company to Cambridge,
April, 1775 ; was Lt. Col. in Col. John Stark's regiment and led
200 men to reinforce Col. Prescott at Bunker Hill on the morning
of that battle, being followed in the afternoon by the remainder
of Stark's regiment and the whole of Reed's. He commanded a
regiment which was mustered, July 16, 1776, and ordered to rein-
force the army in Canada, and served till Dec. i of that year.
After that time Col. Wyman was engaged in civil life. He was
one of the justices of the peace in Keene, and a person of note
in that neighborhood.

captains.

Joshua Abeott of Concord, b. 1740 ; d. March 12, 1815 ; com-
manded the fifth company in Col. John Stark's regiment (First
N. H. ) . He was present with his company near New York, April,
1776. Later the regiment marched to the assistance of the northern
army, and was at Mt. Independence, Nov. 1776. The next year
he was a captain in Lt. Col. Henry Gerrish's regiment which
marched, Sept. 1777, and helped capture Burgoyne's army at Sara-
toga. Capt. Abbott was a member of the well-known Concord
family of that name,

Samuel Blodgett of Goffstown, b. 1724, Woburn, Mass. ;
d. Goffstown, 1807. Capt. Blodgett was a man of great energy
and business capacity, who took part in many enterprises. He
saw service in the Louisburg expedition, was a sutler in the
Crown Point campaign of 1757, and had a narrow escape from
death at the surrender of Fort William Henry. In 1775, he was



Dublin Revolutionary Soldiers. 25

sutler in Sullivau's brigade at Winter Hill. Since lie was more
than fifty years old at the beginning of the war, he did less active
service, yet, in 1777, commanded a company in Col. Nathan Hale's
regiment, but resigned his captaincy, Dec. 22, 1777. Captain Blod-
gett was accounted the wealthiest citizen of Goffstown, and was
prominent in its affairs, civil and religious. He had been a justice
under the royal government, 1774, a fact which shows that he was
an influential citizen.

JosiAH Brown of New Ipswich, b. Concord, Mass., 1744 ; d.
1 83 1. Capt. Brown removed to New Ipswich in 1765 and settled
there upon " Flat Mountain." He was a lieutenant in Capt. Ezra
Towne's company. Col. James Reed's regiment, at Bunker Hill,
and saw sers'ice at Ticonderoga, also, Ma}^, 1777. In the company
which went from New Ipswich, April 20, 1775, Josiah Brown was
sergeant. His name appears as selectman, 17S2, and with other
officers of New Ipswich, as a member of a committee to get pay
for vv^ar expenses, 1785; Capt. Joseph Parker vras another member
and Col. Thomas Heald, a third.

Benjamin Bullard of Sherborn, Mass., appears to have been
one of the " Alarm L,ist " of Holliston foot companj'- in 1757, and
a private in Capt. Jones's company at Crown Point, 1759. He
was captain of a company of ' ' minute men ' ' who marched upon
the alarm of April 19, 1775, and served for 5 days. Later he was
a captain in Col. Laommi Baldwin's regiment stationed at Prospect
Hill. In October of the same year, he was a captain in Col. Jona.
Brewer's regiment, was transferred to Col. Jos. Henshaw's regi-
ment, and then to the 7th company of the 6th regiment, Col. Asa
Whitcomb's, with which he w^as connected while at Ft. Ticon-
deroga, Nov. 27, 1776. In the following j^ear he appears to have
commanded a company (the 9th) in Col. Samuel Bullard's regi-
ment (5tli Middlesex) which took part in the capture of Burgoyne,
1777. His famil}' is probably connected with that of the Bullards
who settled in Dublin. Capt. Bullard is believed to have been
present at the battle of Bunker Hill.

Isaac Davis of Chesterfield, son of Simon Davis, of Green-
wich, Mass., came to Chesterfield about 1762, being then thirty
years old. He died there, Nov. 28, 1776, onh' twelve days after
the end of his service in the army, which probably caused his



26 Dublin Revolutionary Soldiers.

death. He signed the "Association Test" at Chesterfield, 1776,
and commanded a company in Col. Samuel Ashley's regiment
which went to reinforce the " Northern Army," Oct. 21-Nov. 16,
1776.

Henry Dearborn, b. Hampton, N. H., 1751 ; d, 1829 ; was
captain in Col. John Stark's regiment, took part in Arnold's win-
ter expedition against Quebec, was major in the 3d N. H. regiment,
Lt. Col. of the same in 1780, and after Col. Scammel's death, Oct.
6, 178 1 , became its commander. He was Secretary of War during
Jefferson's administration, and rose to the rank of Major General
in the War of 1812. In 1822 he was appointed minister to Port-
ugal and held that post for two years. In the mooted question
who commanded the American troops at Bunker Hill, Gen. Dear-
born earnestly vjp^!l&i^ the claim of Gen. Putnam.

Moody Dustin of Litchfield, b. ; d. ; was first lieu-
tenant in Col. I^oammi Baldwin's (Mass.) regiment which, Sept.
26, 1775, was stationed at Sewall's Point. In 1777, he held a
similar position in Capt. William Scott's company. Col. John
Stark's regiment, and after Col. Joseph Cilley succeeded to the
command of that regiment, was made captain, March 5, 1778.
This rank he held until he was mustered out, Jan. i, 1784.

Daniel Emerson, Jr., of Hollis, b. 1746; d. Oct. 4, 1821 ;
commanded a company in Col. Joshua Wingate's regiment which
marched to reinforce the northern army in 1776. In June, 1777,
