    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.

    the Revolution, came with his family from
    Tolland, Conn. Before 1795 & purchased a

    Corners, now owned by Elbridge Hardy.

    principles. His oldest son Lemuel married
    a daughter of Barnabas Bates. He purchased a
    farm contigious to his father's & was a celebrated
    "Corn Raiser", was styled "Corn King". It was said
    that he was the only man that raised corn that was
    for seed in 1816, the cold season. He planted a piece
    on a high hill that had been burned off, but not
    logged & and that ripened & was good for seed.
