(V)Deacon Ezra, fifth child and fourth son of Joseph (4) and Deborah (Fairbanks) Twitchell, was born in Sherborn, Massachusetts, June 23, 1746, and died in Bethel, Maine. He settled in Bethel about the time his brother Eli died, and was a farmer. He first resided in Dublin, New Hampshire, where his brother, Samuel also lived. Ezra Twitchell was in the battle of Saratoga and several other engagements in revolutionary war, and the sword he carried is in the possession of the family. While in Dublin four of his children, all that were born to him, died in one day of throat distemper (diphtheria). So stupefied were the parents by this terrible stroke that they could not shed a tear at the time. He was chosen Deason of the Congregational Church in Bethel, and worthily filled the office until his death. He married Susanna Rice, of Farmingham, Massachusetts, by whom he had eleven children: Susanna (died young), Hannah (died young), Anna (died young), Calvin (died young), Susanna, Calvin, Eliza, Eli, Thaddeus, Anna, and Nathan F.

Their children were: Daniel, Alphin, Nancy, Cynthia, Abiah, Samuel (died yound), Samuel Birge, Richard Eastman, Betsey Chapman, and Lucian.
