Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Daniel Squire was born on 8 Jun 1784 in Halifax, Windham, Vermont (son of Daniel Squier and Elizabeth Wood); died on 4 Mar 1879 in Green Lake, Green Lake, Wisconsin; was buried in Rock Hill Cemetery, Kingston, Green Lake, Wisconsin.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 1825

    Notes:

    He is said in several sources, including "People and Events of Yesteryear: Charles Albert Squier" (citation details below), to have served in the War of 1812. ancestry.com contains an entry for a "Squire, Daniel" in its War of 1812 Pension Application Files Index 1812-1815, which states his service to have been "Capt. H. Pratt's Co. N.Y. Mil." Whether this is our Daniel Squire is not established, although the (well-documented) fact that our Daniel Squire's father fought in the Revolution does add credence to the idea.

    "Daniel Squier Sr. [...] was also a skilled artisan and a manufacturer of wooden mouldboard plows, wagons and woolen and linen spinning wheels." ["People and Events of Yesteryear: Charles Albert Squier" (citation details below)]

    "Daniel Squier who married Sarah Ann Lytle left Camden Valley [in Washington County, New York] for Riga, Monroe County, New York in 1827. In 1847 he moved to Kingston, Wisconsin." [Francis A. Baker, citation details below]

    Daniel married Sarah Ann Lytle on 23 Jan 1806. Sarah (daughter of John Lytle and Mary Pearce) was born on 22 Dec 1782; died on 7 Jun 1847 in Kingston, Green Lake, Wisconsin; was buried in Rock Hill Cemetery, Kingston, Green Lake, Wisconsin. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    According to a statement provided by the Department of the Interior to a descendant on 2 Feb 1917, this Daniel Squier fought at the battle of Bunker Hill.

    This statement also noted that this Daniel Squier, living in Salem, Washington, New York in 1822, was at that time in his 67th year and that his wife was the same age.

    According to Francis A. Baker (citation details below), after Daniel Squier and Elizabeth Wood married, they first settled in Halifax, Windham County, Vermont, then in the winter of 1790-91 they moved in a sleigh across the Green Mountains to Camden Valley, Salem, Washington County, New York.

    Children:
    1. 2. Daniel Squier was born in 1756 in Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut; died on 25 Jan 1828 in Salem, Washington, New York.

  3. 6.  Nehemiah Wood was born on 16 Jan 1727 in Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut (son of Thomas Wood and Abigail Hartshorn).

    Notes:

    Said to have died in 1796 in Cornwallis, Kings County, Nova Scotia. We've failed to find a source that confirms this, but we regard it as plausible for several reasons:

    Nova Scotia Immigrants to 1867, Volume 1, by Leonard H. Smith (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Company, 1992) records the emigration to Falmouth, Nova Scotia, in 1760, of two brothers of Nehemiah Wood's wife Elizabeth Hovey: Daniel Hovey (b. Mansfield, 1736) and Enoch Hovey (b. Mansfield, 1738), both shown as sons of "Daniel/Elizabeth (Slap)", who were indeed the parents of Nehemiah Wood's wife.

    The History of Kings County, Nova Scotia by Arthur Wentworth Hamilton Eaton (Salem: The Salem Press Company, 1910), page 441, gives an account of "one Daniel Hovey in King's County" who, in 1761, was jailed "for uttering certain expressions of a dangerous tendency" and subsequently released on order of the Nova Scotia Council at Halifax.

    The genealogical section of the Life of George Dewey, Rear Admiral by Adelbert M. Dewey and Louis Marinus Dewey (Westfield, Massachusetts: Dewey Publishing Company, 1898) shows Moses Dewey, son of John, b. 10 Nov 1718 at Lebanon, Connecticut, who moved with his wife Mary English to Cornwallis, Nova Scotia about 1760, and whose daughter Mary, born 2 Aug 1765 at Corwallis, married, 22 Feb 1792, Jonathan Wood, son of Nehemiah and Elizabeth Wood.

    Finally, an article by Mirth Hall, "Canadian Notes and Records," in the Dec 1972 issue of the Bulletin of the Seattle Genealogical Society (22:70), contains a list of "persons to whom town lots were assigned at Falmouth [Nova Scotia], November 15, 1760, taken from the Proprietor's Records." The 8th name on the list is Nehemiah Wood. By itself this proves little, since surely there were several Nehemiah Woods in New England and the Canadian Maritimes in 1760. But with all the other circumstantial evidence, it seems likely that this is our man.

    Nehemiah married Elizabeth Hovey on 5 Mar 1752 in Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut. Elizabeth (daughter of Daniel Hovey and Elizabeth Slapp) was born on 1 Nov 1734 in Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 7.  Elizabeth Hovey was born on 1 Nov 1734 in Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut (daughter of Daniel Hovey and Elizabeth Slapp).

    Notes:

    We have no death date for her, but if she lived past 1760, our guess is that she died in Nova Scotia. See the entry for her husband.

    1. 3. Elizabeth Wood was born on 19 Feb 1756 in Mansfield, Tolland, Connecticut.
