I'm trying to find parents and an adoption/guardianship record in Franklin Co. for Bethiah Easterbrooks who was born 1748. She came from Montague to live with Rev. Nathaniel Smith in Sunderland as a young girl. (This info is from the Rev War pension file of her husband, David Scott, of Sunderland.) I believe her parents to be Aaron Easterbrooks and Bethiah Ball (who died 1752). When his wife died, I believe Aaron gave his daughter up for adoption to, or at least put her in the care of, Rev. Smith, prior to returning to Concord, from whence he came.
