  • Notes 
    • From The Descendants of William Hartwell, citation details below:

      Joseph is almost certainly the Joseph Hartwell shown on Capt. Thomas Lawrence's billeting roll in 1758, indicating that he was still in Massachusetts at that time, apparently in the Westford/Groton area, where most of the men in Thomas Lawrence's company resided (NEHGR 50 [1896]: 353). He enlisted 2 May 1758 and served 24 days for a total of 12 shillings pay.

      Joseph moved to Westmoreland, New Hampshire (HOA), and was in Putney, Vermont as early as 1771, where his name appears on the Vermont 1771 census (PVR 391). He was Highway Surveyor of Putney in 1780, and apparently was a member of Capt. Fish's company in 1781, although this reference gives his residence as 'Townshend' (Soldiers, Sailors and Patriots of the Revolutionary War - Vermont).
