Came to Concord Township, Lake Co., OH from Sunapee, NH and arrived around 1813. "The Geauga Co. records show marriages of dau. Betwey, Cyrene, Mehalia. Several other families from the area of Sunapee moved to Ohio and settled in Concord with the Huntoons, Youngs, Clapps, Chase, and other families. The following is an account of the Origin of the Name of the Town of Concord and the Huntoon Family as written by Frederick C. White, professor at Western Reserve Univ.: "In March, 1822, the commissioners of Geauga County authorized that there be set off from Painesville a certain area lying largely in Township 10, Range 8, which was to be erected into a town by the name of Concord. This Township is not five miles square, since its boundaries follow the topography and, in part, the Grand River, rather than the surveyor's lines." Because there was a combined migration coming from several towns in New Hampshire they named the town after the Capitol of their state, NY. From Steed: On May 24, 1775, which was a little more than a month after the Battle of Lexington and Concord, the Assembly of New Hampshire sitting at Exeter, then the state capitol, authorized the raising of a regiment to fight the British. The next day Thomas Huntoon and his younger brother Charles, enlisted June 12, 1775. Charles was wounded at Bunker Hill. Thomas Philbrick Huntoon served as Private 2 months and 12 days in Capt. Tilton's Company of Colonel Enoch Poor's Regiment. Most of his service as in camp at Cambridge, Mass (New Hampshire Army Rolls, vol. 8, No. 38. Steed, cont., p. 125: Records show that for some special service he and about twenty of his fellow members in the regiment were each promised a regimental coat, but in October 1775, each of this group of soldiers signed a receipt for Four Dollars in money in lieu of the coat. On the enlistment roll, he is named as Thomas Philbrick Huntoon, but his signature on the receipt is Philbrick Huntoon. In September, 1776, he again enlisted and was in service two months, going to New York. In June 1777, he again enlisted and was at Ticonderoga for 7 days and again in Sept. 1777 he enlisted and was in the Battle of Saratoga. The records of these 4 enlistments, including mileage and pay, are all in the official New Hampshire printed records. He filed for pension but it was rejected. Per steed, p. 123, he was named after Thomas Philbrick, a man prominent in southern New Hampshire. !Death: Steed reference, p. 123. !Burial: Steed reference p. 123. Buried in Huntoon Cemetery on Route 86, also referred to as the Stickney Cemetery because Stickney owned the property on Route 86 and Gray Road.
