John and Lydia (Ladd) Carlton were married in Haverhill, Mass., where their families lived, and where they made their first home and the first of their children were born. Birth records for Kimball and Hannah are found in the Haverhill records. About 1750, John apparently moved his family to Tolland, CT where they remained as permanent residents. John became an early owner of land in the area. John was a Lieutenant in the Revolutionary War,serving the company formed by Capt Solomon Wills of Tolland, which answered the call to arms at Lexington, MA, in April of 1775. He died intestate and his widow declined to administer his estate, asking the probate judge to appoint her son, John, that "trust." On 21 July 1786, the son, John, and his brother-in-law, Simon Chapman (husband of Lydia Carlton) posted a bond of five hundred pounds with the probate judge.

An inventory of the estate was filed 31 January 1787, and shows John to have had a well stocked farm of 100 acres with a substantial house, well-furnished, and with a barn stables. His personal wardrobe was of good size and materials. Distribution of a portion of the estate was made to the widow, Lydia, on 17 April 1787, when she received 24 acres of land, the rooms at the south end of the house with furnishings; privilege to use the kitchen for washing and baking; and part of the cellar and barn. The rest was sold to Simon Chapman (son-in-law) as the highest bidder. Final distribution to heirs was made on 23 April 1790. Among those named were Kimball Carlton, 2 acres; John Carlton, 6 acres; "Dirius" Carlton, 6 acres; Lydia (Carlton) Chapman, 8 acres. The rest of the heirs of the deceased "having before received the whole of their shares."

The birth records have never been found for the children (except Kimball and Hannah), certain facts regarding them come from the above mentioned court proceedings and family papers. Ten children are listed on one DAR membership application. Ma kept good records early; Connecticut did not officially require them until much later.

The following sketch of the life of Moses Carelton was furnished by his granddaughter, Mrs. A. M. Peaslee of Alna, Lincoln Co., Me.
"I know nothing of the youthful part of his life. When quite young he married Lois Hoyt, and which East in search of a future home. He probably went to Wiscassett by water, and then taking a boat and applying his oars, he soon reached the head of the tide waters of the Sheepscot River about 10 miles from Wiscassett where he selected a place for his residence. He felled trees and built a cabin. The place was then called Old Town Alldeborough. Sometime after New Milford. It is now called Alne. Soon after his cabin was built he returned to the home of his youth to accompany his wife to their new residence.
His father gave him a yoke of large oxen which were transferred in a vessel to Wiscassett from whence he led them by land to Alna. The oxen did not like the country and returned to NH through the forest, swimming rivers as best they could. Mr. Carleton subsequently built a large and commodious house, barn carriage-house and store.
The house still remains a monument of the good taste and thrift of its builder. The sound condition of the covering boards provide proves that if the inhabitants have improved since these early days in the history of the town, there isn't now such lumber as was then found in the virgin forest.
He engaged in agriculture, trade, and commerce. He built seven vessels some of which were taken by the French, and for which the United States are indeed indebted to his heirs. He was successful and acquired a large property, gained a good name, was honest and true in all the relations of life, pleasant and cheerful in his disposition, and died trusting in his Redeemer."

-----

A brief description of these two young people is found in "Waldos in America"[:ITAL] by J. Waldo Crosby:
"Mr. Waldo was low in stature, thick-set, broad in chest and shoulders, very muscular, quick in understanding, scrupulously honest and very orthodox. His wife was unusually large, weighing 240 pounds and not overburdened with flesh. I have seen her take a barrel of cider from the rear of a cart and place it on the ground quietly. She had the advantage of her husband in height, and, had they ever come to blows, he, though a giant in strength, would certainly have had the worst of it. Once, when insulted by a man of average size, she seized him at arm's length, ran with him over the road, and plunged him into a goose pond."

retiring from active business about 1840. He attained considerable
celebrity as a manufacturing jeweler, his silverware being famous, far

PETER CARLETON OF LANDAFF

This little sketch is written about Peter Carleton of Haverhill,
Ma and Landaff, Grafton Co., Nh. His father and mother were
Peter and Hannah (Gage) Carleton who were married at Haverhill 12March
1750. Peter was their third child, he was born 9 September 1755.

It is to be supposed that he lived the life of the average boy ofthose
times. He attended public schools of Haverhill and afterwards engagedin
agricultural pursuits. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War.

In the course of time, he married Abigail Hazeltine on 6 January 1782.
The birth of their daughter Zalinda on 12 June 1790 is recorded on the
vital records in Haverhill. The others: George, born 6 July 1792; John
born 9 September 1794; Louise born 24 September 1796 are recorded at
Landaff. There may have been other children.

So it would seem that it was about 1790 that he removed fromHaverhill,
Ma to Landaff, Grafton Co., Nh and made his home on the farm now
occupied by Amos Albee. He was probably the most prominent man in this
vicinity at that time.

In the summer of 1793 he was one of the committee who did the work of
laying out a road from Concord (now Lisbon) line through the towns of
Littleton and Dalton to the Lancaster town line. This road, thehistory
says, when completed made a rough but passable thoroughfare between
Haverhill and Lancaster. It was made to be traveled on horseback, oron
foot, or by ox teams. Fordable streams were not bridged and swampswere
sometimes corduroyed, stumps were cut close to the ground, but rockswere
permissible in the best roads of the day.

He was a Justice of the Peace, and performed a great many marriage
ceremonies. A good many of them are found recorded on our old (Lisbon)
town records. He was the magistrate before whom a great many people
appeared to be sworn when making conveyances of land, and his wife,
Abigail, witnessed many of the signatures of conveyances.

In 1795 he was on a committee with Ebenezer Brewster of Hanover, and
Capt. John Mann of Orford, the founder of that town, to select thesite
for the old covered bridge between Haverhill and Newbury, known as the
"Haverhill Bridge." This is the bridge a little way below the Keyesfarm.

The death of his wife Abigail has not been found on record, but on the
town records of Bath his second marriage is recorded. On 8 March 1801,he
married Miss Azubah Stone, a woman twenty years younger than himself.

In 1803 the Coos Bank of Haverhill was chartered. Peter Carleton wasone
of the incorporators and directors of the bank. With him in this bank
were associated John Montgomery, the president of the bank who livedat
the Brook (in Haverhill) and built the beautiful Colonial house whereMr.
Koch has an antique shop now. George Woodward was the cashier of the
bank. He was the son of Bezeleel Woodward of Hanover and his wife,Mary,
the daughter of Eleazer Wheelock, the founder and first president of
Dartmouth College. Like his father, he had been treasurer of theCollege.
He built the fine mansion at the south end of the common in Haverhill,
surrounded now by a beautiful antique fence. In this house the bankdid
its business. Another one of the directors was Moses Payson of Bath,who
built the house we now know as the Colonial Inn.

In 1820 the bank found itself in financial difficulties and failed.The
directors were retired and the Grafton bank was chartered. MosesPayson
was the only one of the directors of the Coos Bank called to the
directorate of this new bank.

In politics he was a Democrat. He was elected to the State House of
Representatives in 1803, and served his term. At this time John Taylor
Gilman of Exeter was the Governor of the state. He was elected State
Senator in 1806, which office he held during the term of John Langdonas
Governor. He was elected to the Tenth United States Congress andserved
from March 1807 to March 1809. At this time Thomas Jefferson was the
President of the United States. John Marshall was the Chief Justice of
the Supreme Court. He may have witnessed the trial of Aaron Burr for
conspiracy against the Government. About this time Robert Fultonlaunched
his steamboat on the Hudson River, and the events which catapulted the
War of 1812 were in the embroiling.

On 9 April 1818, being 63 years of age, he applied for a pension. This
would seem that he had been unfortunate financially. In hisapplication
he said that he had enlisted in January 1777 in Ma, and served
under Capt. John Blanchard and Col. James Wesson until 31 December1779,
on which date he was discharged at West Point, Ny. That he was in
the battles of Bemis Heights and Stillwater. He held the commission of
Sergeant Major. He signed this application with a cross, which wouldmake
it seem that he had become blind. His claim for a pension was allowed.

In 1820 he mentions his children by his second wife: Hannah fourteen
years of age, James seven years of age, and Mary five years of age,and
says: "I have children by a former wife, they are all of age."

In 1855 his wife Azubah, was living in Norfalk, St. Lawrence Co., New
York.

He died in Bath. The papers in the settlement of his estate are onfile
in the Probate Office at Woodville.

The inscription on his unimposing gravestone in the cemetery atLandaff,
reads: "Peter Carleton, Esq., died April 29, 1828 in the 73rd year
of his age."[:ITAL]
