    Notes 
    • From an old account book, dated 1815, we find Betfield Sawyer was a methodical man, a good penman, and carried on the trade of the town shoemaker. The account book gives the names of nearly 100 men and women of the town and surrounding towns, among them being the father of Daniel Webster who lived about seven miles away. In 1797 the town of New Chester voted to pay able bodied men 50 cents a day, and 50 cents a day for a yoke of oxen. The account book shows that, in addition to the considerable work he did as a shoemaker, Betfield kept a goodly stocked farm for those days, and his boys were set at work early.
