  • Notes 
    • "Samuel Averill; time of service unknown, private, Capt. Elkanah Day's Company, Major Joel Hoesington. Aug 1776, residence unknown"
      N.B. --Westminster men were under Capt & Major Elkanah Day during the war and as "Samuel Averie" who also lived at Westminster (Groton Averys, No 41 pg 565), is accounted for, and was never called Averill, and as are records are quite complete as to Samuels of our stock , we conclude there can be no doubt that this record is of the above Samuel Averill - Clara Avery
      He lived in Westminster, Plymouth, Randolph and Brookfield, VT
      in Randolph, Orange Co, VT - land transfers recorded vol 4 pg 368 and vol 5 pg 273

      married second a widow, Mrs. Washburn

      1790 Westminster 1 under 16, 6 females

      Randolph, Orange, VT land transfers
      Vol. 4. Samuel Averill, grantee, and Dudley Chae as trustee of Orange Co. Grammar School property, grantor of said school lnads (both parties of Randolph), which Samuel as lessee, is to have “as long as wood grows and water runs,” provided he keeps up the rent of twelve dollars annually on the twenty five acres leased.
      Instrument dated April 26, 1809, and signed by Dudley Chace, Samuel Averill.

      Vol. 5. An Indenture between Samuel Averill and William Nutting, both of Randolph, in which Samuel sublets to sd Nutting the above twenty-five acres of school lands, under the same conditions as those exacted for his own lease. Date of Instrument May 1, 1812, and signed by both parties. William Nutting, Samuel Averill
      Wit’s Dudley Chace, Tim Baylies

      +Mr. Martin, of The Congregationalist, Boston, having rec’d from the Compiler’s amanuensis, Miss A.E.B., a note relative to the following verse in Molly Barnes’ bible (printed 1732)
      “Mollie Barnes is my name,
      English is my nation,
      Concord is my dwelling place,
      Christ is my Salvation.”
      Put the query in the “Corner” of The Congregationalist, Dec. 15, 1900, about the origin of this verse about the name. This led to a long and very interesting sampler story! After it was published, the Concord MA Antiquary, Mr. Geo. Tolman, wrote him that he thought Molly was a Barron, as the names (Barnes and Barron) were interchangeable, and there was some connection between the Barrons and Averills. To this the Ed. Replied that Mollie’s son Samuel Averill had a daughter called “Mollie Barnes” Averill, who d. 1851, and who thought that Barnes was her Mother’s surname, though that does not prove that it was not originally Barron.

      DAR Application served under Capt Elkanah Day and Capt Joseph Hatch, Maj. Joel Hoisington
