BENJAMIN4 MARBLE (JOSEPH3, JOSEPH2, JOSEPH1) was born Abt. 1725, and died Bef. 1800 in Winchester, New Hampshire.
He married MARTHA GOSS October 05, 1749 in Bolton, Worcester Co., Massachusetts.
She was born July 19, 1729, and died July 17, 1806 in Winchester, Cheshire Co., New Hampshire.
His grandfather's will dated Nov. 20, 1749, probated Feb. 5, 1750 mentions his grandsons, Joseph and Benjamin, sons of his deceased son Joseph, but no mention is made of this Joseph's wife or the birth dates of his sons.
GUADIANSHIP OF BENJAMIN MARBLE BY JAMES KEYES
See Scantlin- Marble file for the following:
Section from a research report done by Lineages Inc. (#138166) for Diane Scantlin on 8 Aug 1995; compiled by Diana W , Pattillo.
Probate records of Worcester County include an entry for the guardianship of Benjamin Marble of Lancaster. On 19 Feb 1742, Benjamin MARBLE, a minor of the age of seventeen, chose James KEYS of Bolton as his guardian. Benjamin state d that he was the son of Joseph MARBLE, late of Lancaster. James KEYS filed a guardian bond on the same day, with Caleb WILDER and David WILDER of Lancaster as sureties. Jonathan HOUGHTON and Abel WILDER witnessed the bond. From this record, Benjamin MARBLE's birth date can be calculated to 1725, and his father is definitely identified as Joseph MARBLE."
"No death record for Joseph MARBLE was found in vital records of Bolton or of Lancaster. James KEYES died in Bolton on 25/29 September 1746, at the age of seventy-six, and his wife, Hannah, died in Bolton on 19 March 1742 in her seventy -fourth year."
"James KEYES is important, not only as the guardian of Benjamin MARBLE, but also because he may be Benjamin's grandfather. The Will of James KEYES was proved in Bolton, Worcester County on 27 October 1746. As one of his heirs he name (da) daughter, Hannah MARBLE. He also left bequests of land to a grandson, Joseph MARBLE, but did not mention Benjamin MARBLE in his Will"
Diana Pattillo was obviously not aware of the Will of Joseph Marble (1673) proved in 1750 that states Joseph and Benjam in Marble are both sons of his deceased son, Joseph Marble (1699). The report above and corresponding documentation l isted below shows that Hannah (Keyes) Marble was the wife of Joseph Marble (1699) and the mother of Joseph Marble (ca . 1721) and Benjamin Marble (ca. 1725). It is not clear if Hannah Keyes was already deceased when her father's will wa s proved in 1746, but it would seem that both she and Joseph Marble (1699) must have been deceased if her father was de clared Benjamin's guardian in 1742.

The French and Indian War (1754 - 1763)
The Quebec Campaign 1759 (Battle of Quebec)
The campaign for 1759, as planned by (William) Pitt, contemplated a direct attack upon Quebec by a select army of English troops commanded by Wolfe, to be seconded by a vigorous advance towards Montreal by way of Lake Champlain. By the end of June, Wolfe was planting his batteries oposite the Gibraltar of America; but Amherst lingered three weeks later, adding to the superfluous earthworks of Fort William Henry, before he ventured upon the single day's journey down Lake George to the scene of Abercrombie's disgrace the preceding year. The colonial troops had been long assembled, awaiting orders. The following list shows the Lancaster men enrolled in March and April:
Return of the Men enlisted or impressed for his Mahesties Service within the Province of the Massachusetts Bay in the Regiment whereof Oliver Wilder Esq. is Colonel, to be put under the immediate Command of His Excellency Jeffrey Amherst Esq. General & Commander in Chief of His Majesties Forces in America for the Invasion of Canada.

Josiah Whitney and Samuel Meed of Harvard were in other companies of the same regiment.
Most of the soldiers of this neighborhood, however, were in three companies of a regiment commanded by Colonel Timothy Ruggles, which suffered severely in the battle of Lake George, September 8, 1755, when the gallant Dieskau was defeated by the undisciplined valor of New England rustics under the energetic leadership of General Phineas Lyman, despite the woful mismanagement of the commander-in-chief. The muster-roll of Captain Joseph Whitcomb's Company is in Massachusetts Archives, XCIV, 86. The time of service was from March, 1755, to the close of the year:

The Settlers of the Beekman Patent contains data on over thirteen hundred families who settled in the Beekman Patent, an original land grant given to Col. Henry Beekman in 1697 by the English Crown and the second largest patent in present-day Dutchess County. Many emigrants from New England lived in and passed through the Beekman Patent on their way west. Others, such as the Palatines and Quakers (almost all from New England), were early settlers and remained for several generations or more. The area of study includes the towns of Beekman, Dover, LaGrange (part), Pawling (including Quaker Hill), and Union Vale.
