  • Notes 
    • Benjamin's father receved grants of land in Livermore, Maine for his service as a soldier. His father died in 1766 and the lots were not drawn until Sep and Oct of 1772, so Benjamin, Jr. drew his father's lots by claiming his rights as his father's heir. Benjamin drew lots 39, 92, 102 and 33. He gave one lot each to his sons John, Abel, Abijah, and Isaac.

      Benjamin and his wife Mary lived in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
