    Notes 
    • He was a blacksmith by trade, and settled in Norton. He was a private in Capt. George Makepeace's company, Col. John Daggett's regiment, in 1776, and served for twenty-five days. He was private in Capt. Samuel Robinson's company; enlisted June 21, 1778, and served twenty-two days at Rhode Island. Served in company raised to serve in Colonel Wade's regiment. He also served in Capt. Isaac Hodge's company, Colonel Carpenter's regiment; service from July 27, 1778, to Aug. 13, 1778; eighteen days at Rhode Island. This record is given for the father rather than the son, who was old enough to serve. As the son is reported to have been deformed and a hunchback, while the father was a strong, vigorous man, it has been generally supposed that the record belongs entirely to the father.
