  • Notes 
    • John and his son, Jared, went with his brother, Silas, from Old Lyme, Connecticut up the Connecticut Rifer to Straffor, Vermont in 1762. John owned one or more of the first mills in the town.

      In 1777, John was commissioned by Thomas Chittenden, Vermont's first governor, as Captain of the 5th Regiment of the Strafford, Vermont Militia when the town was evacuated for fear of an attack by General George Burgoyne. John's commission paper was kept in the history collection in the Public Library in Stratfford, Vermont.
