Do not have proof of Nathan Gould's parents, but there was a Nathan b. to Benjamin and Hepzibah (poss. Parker?) Gould, 26 July 1749 in Stoneham, MA.He would be the right age, and other circumstantial evidence adds weight to the probability that this is the correct Nathan.Hepzibah Gould died in Marlboro VT in 1826, age 103, according to a noticein the 21 April 1826 issue of Vermont Chronicle.Right age and right location to be Nathan's mother.Additionally, Benjamin and Hepzibah had another son, Ebenezer, b 30 July 1750, who also lived in Windham County,, VT...married Ann Scott, dau of Abraham...and later lived in Washington Co. NY.The Goulds and Scotts seemed to intermarry in different generations. Yet another son, Benjamin Parker Gould, b 6 Apr 1753, Shoreham, MA, died and is buried at Meetinghouse Hill cemetery in W. Brattleboro.No death date given for him in the cemetery book.
Ruth Dunklee, wife of Nathan Gould, and mother of Hannah Gould, was the daughter of Robert and Martha Singletary Dunklee, who moved to Brattleboro c1774 from Massachusetts. Robert died there [Brattleboro] in 1776 and is buried in Meetinghouse Hill Cemetery in W. Brattleboro.His wife Martha died in 1802, acc. to her obituary, but her gravestone has the date of 1805, which is an error. Her grave is next to that of her husband's in Meetinghouse Hill cemetery. Ruth was b 2 April 1757 in Brimfield, MA.I don't have a death date or place for her [wish I did!].
My husband is a descendant of Ruth Dunklee Gould's brother, Jonathan Dunklee.
