Notes
a. Note:   Excerpt of The History of Rockingham, Vermont by Lyman Hayes says this: Capt. Lemuel Sargeant was of Scotch Ancestry, supposed to have been son of a well known Boston Scotchman named Daniel, who with his brother, Joseph, emigrated from Scotland to that city in 1730. Daniel lived on Franklin Street, and Joseph resided on Oliver Street. Capt. Lemuel came to Bellows Falls, Vermont during the Revolution, probably about 1778 and soon came into possession of nearly all the land now covered by the village of Bellows Falls. The History of Winchendon, Ma(Worcester Co.,) shows his family to have been newcomers in that town in 1769. His father-in-law Pelatiah Hall, came to Bellows Falls from around Westmorland, NH... then it gives a lot of Revolutionary War info... In Mar 10 1789 he deeded to David Sanderson most of the land he owned and moved to Jaffrey, NH.. After living in Jaffrey for some years he removed to Edson's Corners,(near Milford, Otsego Co.,) NY and died there Sept 1823 and was buried on the hill west of town with no stone marking his grave. He married Dec 12, 1765, Sarah Hall, d/o Pelatiah and Sarah (Paul) Hall of Milton, Ma.
