  • Notes 
    • He settled in Sudbury and kept a hotel at North Sudbury. He and his wife were admitted to the church Dec 8, 1798.

      He was a soldier in the Revolution, a Pvt. in Capt. Aaron Haynes' Co. of militia, which marched on the alarm of Apr 19 1775, to Cambridge, via Concord. I served 4 days.

      In his will he devises to "well beloved wife" Sarah (Wheeler) "the improvement of my home farm for her support, I also give her all my personal estate or so much as she shall need for comfort to be at her own disposal"; Hope Brown, son of Hopestill Brown "all my implements of war"; Joel Puffer (his nephew) "my waring apparel and walking staff"; Sarah P. Hayward "my best looking glass"; Sarah, daughter of Nathan and Dolly Wheeler "..one thousand dollars to be on interest till the place is sold under the descretion of her guardian till she is twenty one years of age.."; Dolly Wheeler, daughter of Nathan and Hannah Wheeler "..that part of my farm which may be set off to her mother at her mother's decease.."; the remainder was to be divided evenly between Isaac P. Wheeler, Sarah Cutter and Charles Smith (his nephew).
      (Ed. note: I am unable to connect this Isaac to some of the people mentioned in his will)
