In 1796 he married a girl named Asenath....he came to Newbury in 1817 and lived there ten years before moving to Fullertown in 1827.....(DenisPaul2@aol.com).
Notes for JUSTIN ALEXANDER:
It is not clear why he was in Canada when children Mahala, Joseph, Vincent and Luther were born. He did have distant relatives in Canada.They were descendants of Alexanders who were taken captive in the Deerfield Massacre in 1704 and remained there, but this seems like a very tenuous connection.A more likely explanation is that he was simply on the other side of t he St. Lawrence River from his father and half brothers who were in Henderson, Jefferson Co. , NY (Janice McAlpin- email@example.com).
2 great grandparents: Jonathan Sartle Alexander (1749 in Old Fort Dummer, Brattleboro, Windham Co., VT to 3-7-1838 in Mexico, Oswego, NY) (Fought in the Revolutionary War) and Anna Orvis (5-4-1746 in Northfield, Franklin Co., MA to around 1791 in Windham Co., VT)
Children: Justin (4-11-1774 in Brattleboro, VT), Robert, Reuben, Joseph, Aaron (7-15-1787 in Brattleboro, VT)
Notes for JONATHAN SARTLE ALEXANDER:
Alternate date of death: 7 Mar 1838
His middle name is probably a version of Sartwell.The Sartwell family was prominent in VT a bout that time and there was a Fort Sartwell (also called Fort Sartle) in the area."Soon after Massachusetts made the 1736 grant, two forts were built by men who had received lands under that grant. Josiah Sartwell built his fortified residence within the present town of Vernon . Fort Sartwell, as it became known, was the site of several Indian raids and attacks."
Jonathan was about 8 years old when his father was killed by Indians across the Connecticut River in NH.
Jonathan Alexander was a Revolutionary War soldier.He received a pension and son Justin is mentioned in the pension application. "Genealogical Abstracts of Revolutionary War Pension Files" Abstracted by Virgil D. White. The National Historical Publishing Company pg 28
In 1840 his second wife Bathsheba Rice Alexander is listed as receiving the pension.

Bathsheba Alexander 87Gardener HagainMexicoOswego
In Windham Co., Vermont there are Alexander’s as follows according to the 1790 Censuses:
Thaddeus Alexander of Athens, VT
John Alexander of Bratttleboro, VT
David Alexander of Hallifax, VT
Jonathan Alexander of Hinsdale, VT
Aaron Alexander of Putney, VT
Philip Alexander of Putney, VT
From information about the Bathsheba Rice Hager family: The children of Jonathan from his first marriage may have been Justin, Robert, Reuben, Aaron, and Joseph Alexander.
Anna Orvis was born 4 May 1746 in Northfield, Mass., daughter of William and Anna (Petty) Orvis. She was the first wife of Rev. war soldier Jonathan Sartle (Sartwell) Alexander (b. 1749 at Ft. Dummer) According to papers in the Revolutionary War veteran pension file, Jonathan married his second wife Bathsheba (Rice) Hager in May of 1792.Joseph Alexander who is listed as Anna's son may have been born in March of 1792.So it would seem that Anna (Orvis) Alexander probably died in childbirth and Jonathan remarried immediately. Anna's name is not mentioned in Jonathan's Rev. war pension papers, but her son Justin is listed as one of Jonathan's sons by his first wife. Anna's mother died 19 August 1746, when Anna (Orvis) Alexander was just three months old. One of Anna's stepmothers was Elizabeth Alexander. (probably Jonathan Alexander's aunt.)
According to the Orvis Family in America genealogy Anna was b. Mar 4, 1746. Does not give her mother's maiden name. The notes say she married _______Alexander. One or more of her desc. lived in Newbury Seneca County Ohio in 1857. One was Justin Alexander.

Son John missed being capture by Indians 6/27/1755 because he was after cows belonging to Bridgeman's fort. He served in French and Indian war under Gen. Jeff Amherst. Col Williams Regiment 3/1758 to 12/1758 in Canada. He was at Burgoynes surrender 11/17/1777 in Capt. Merrianis(?) Company (interesting, his Daughters Rachaels' future husband was one of those captured at Saratoga). Later he was appointed 1st Lt. of Militia by the Governor of NY in 1782. H e was one of the first settlers of Brattleboro--Now VT--and at time of his death in 1828 in Marlboro, VT at age 90 he was oldest living of the first settlers of Brattleboro.--Floyd
John Alexander was apparently one of the early "English" settlers in Vermont.According t o a history of the state, prior to 1760, there were only a few New Englanders in the state: " "Vermont had its beginnings in a land controversy. Near the middle of the eighteenth century, both Benning Wentworth, the colonial governor of New Hampshire, and Lt. Governor Cadwallader Colden, representing the colonial government of New York, claimed territory in what is no w Vermont. Massachusetts claimed a small part along Vermont's southern border. Each government petitioned the king to validate their boundaries to include the disputed Vermont land. However, the process of petitioning did not stop either New Hampshire or New York from issuing grants for the same land to their own proprietors and the proprietors in turn selling the land to settlers. Settlers from lower New England and New York began to arrive in "The Grants," as they were called, in the 1760s. Previous residents of the land included a few French settlements in the northern part of the state, the remainder of the Native American population i n the region after the French and Indian Wars, and some early New England settlers around For Dummer on the Vermont River. By 1760, most of these settlers, with the exception of the remaining Abenaki tribe, had moved back to more populated areas in New England and Canada. Life for those settling "The Grants" consisted of clearing rock-laden forests. The settlers were also faced with the uncertainty as to whether the land they were homesteading was really theirs or belonged to someone else who also thought they had a legitimate claim.

1. Richard Hull, the grandfather of the 17th century immigrants George and the Rev. Joseph Hull , is the earliest known member of this Crewkerne, Somersetshire, England Hull Family. Richar d was probably born in the time period between 1500 and 1515, possibly in or near Crewkerne. The names of his parents remain unknown. It is thought that Richard had two wives, but th e name of his first wife has not been determined. It is believed that they married between 15 30 and 1535 and that she was the mother of the first four children of Richard. About 1550 Richard Hull married Alice, whose surname is unknown, and they were the parents of three sons (H ull Family Association Journal, Autumn 2001; p. 83).
According to the Hull Family Association the parish records terminate with this generation and no proof of the line beyond Richard.2. Will of Richard Hull: The following is an abstract of the will of Alice Hull. The original document was destroyed by fire at the Exeter probate registry.Archdeaconry of Taunton, book 3, folio 38. Richard Hull of Crokehorne, husbandman, dated 10 February 1558/59.
3. Will of Alice Hull: The following is an abstract of the will of Alice Hull. The original document was destroyed b y fire at the Exeter probate registry. Archdeaconry of Taunton. Alice Hull of Crewkerne, co. Somerset, widow, dated 12 October 1577.4. Notes for THOMAS HULL: According to one source [Our American Ancestry AUTHOR: Gates, Frederick Taylor PUBLICATION: 1928, Montclair, NJ] "The family of George Hull was in a quite poor financial state in England. When his father, Thomas Hull of Crewkerne, Somerset, died in 1636, he left an estate value d at 17 pounds, 7 shillings, 6 pence, of which 9 pounds, 2 shillings, 2 pence was in outstanding debts. After the funeral expenses had been paid there were only 2 pounds in cash. The hom e must have been hardly more than a hovel since it contained only a bed, 2 table boards, 1 ch est, 2 coffers, 1 chair, 1 other item of furniture, 1 skillet, and 1 pewter dish.
