  Notes for William Marshall:
Revolutionary War: Hampstead, Rockingham, NH. He served in the Revolutionary war, "although in his fiftieth year when the battle of Lexington was fought," and was the first representative to the General Court under the new constitution. His granddaughter, Mrs. Mary Marshall Dyer says of her grandfather in her book: "When I was sixteen years of age I spent two years at my grandfather's home in Hampstead to be near the seashore for my health. My grandfather, Capt. William Marshall, was much of a business man. Previous to the Revolution he had been a commanding officer in the King's Regiment. He was also a worthy merchant. He had a large farm where he lived and owned rights in a number of towns. While in this situation the Americans began to be dissatisfied with British oppression. The Stamp Act began to arouse the inhabitants. He soon exclaimed, 'We can be an independent nation.' He renounced his gold-laced coat and hat; he would wear nothing but home-made manufacture and abolished all costly ornaments in his family of apparel or furniture and declared himself independent of foreign powers. His influence had a good effect. In the time of the Revolution, he, with my father (Caleb), did much for the soldiers and suffering in Coos County. He continued an unflinching patriot through life. He was a large and robust man and much was said about him because he wore his grey cloth clothes. He had a strong and persevering mind."

  Notes for Benjamin Tarr:
Benjamin Tarr

The original Benjamin Tarr house can still be found with an identifying historic plaque in Rockport, Massachusetts. Rockport was part of Gloucester, Massachusetts until 1839, when it held it's first independent town meeting. An excellent reference on the town of Rockport can be found in Town on Sandy Bay; a History of Rockport, Massachusetts by Marshall W.S. Swan, published in 1980 by Phoenix Publishing, Canaan, Connecticut.

On Page 22, we find: "Despite all this, the Richard Tarr family stuck it out at their home on the slope of "Davissons Run." To the joy of grandmother's release from prison was added another daughter, Honor, on May 20, 1693, quite possibly the first white child born in Rockport. She was followed by Richard in 1695, Joseph in 1698, Benjamin in 1700, and others in the new century: Caleb (1703); Samuel (1706); Abigail (1709); and Sarah, who arrived on September 11, 1716, when her father was seventy and her mother forty-nine. All were baptized in Gloucester's first parish church."
