Additional Information

Notes:

1836, and removed to St. Johnsbury on the sixteenth of the same month. He located on the farm purchased of Maj. Daniel Pierce. Maj. Pierce was its first owner, taking it when a dense wilderness, in 1792, and made it his home until conveyed to Mr. Allen. from:http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vermont/CaledoniaStJohnsbury.html

I assigned the town Westmoreland, Cheshire County, NH on the basis of his father's enlistment from there during the revolutionary War. See sources for Daniel Pierce (b. 1742)

Abigail Gilson:

Notes:

Ancestry has some records that give the parents of Daniel White (b. 1768) as Abigail White (1766-1847), The same birth dates as Abigail Gilson. The parents of Abigail White are given as Thomas White (1718-1806) and Apphia (1730-1818.) At this point in time I have more confidence in the research of contact: RICHARD L. Pierce , who lists Abigail Gilson.
