Michael, I am descended from Ebenezer Hoisington, who was instrumental in the founding of VT. He was born in 1729 to John II and Elizabeth Shailor. He married Elizabeth Miller in 729. They had 7 sons and 2 daughters. He fought in the French/Indian War in 1755. Have you seen the Hoisington Family Web Site? Use dogpile search, then search for Hoisington, or try http://www.genweb.net/~hoisington/hoisington_index.htmhttp://www.genweb.net/~hoisington/hoisington_index.htm.
