Nathaniel Powers, Corp. was born in 1754 at Brattleborough, Windham, CT and married in 1776 Madrid, St. Lawrence, NY to Jerusha Hart b. 1757, daughter of Constant Hart who served in the Revolutionary War with Nathaniel Powers at Ticonderoga. Nathaniel served in the New Hampshire 1st Regiment from Jan 1777 to July 1782. From "Rolls of Soldiers in the Revolutionary War, Vol III, pg 934" at age 28 his height was given as 5' 9 �" tall. He resided in Charlestown, NH from 1778 to 1792 and is listed in the 1790 census there. In 1791 he is listed in Ferrisburg, VT. He bought 30 acres of land in Ferrisburg, VT for 30 dollars on 6 July 1792 and he is listed in the 1796 census in Augusta Township, Grenville, Ontario and in Yonge, Leeds, Ontario in 1802 and 1803. He died shortly before 4 Mar. 1804, in Yonge, Leeds, Ontario. as his probate record was proved on this date. (The information on Nathaniel and his children and some of his grandchildren was taken from a 9 pg. letter written by Ivy Powers Bradford to her niece about the family dated 9 Sept. 1929. I have a copy.)
