From "The Descendants of Andrew Warner":
Buried in Gilead.
He probably resided early at Colchester; Dec 11, 1718, he made his first purchase of land in Hebron. His will, made Sep 20, 1754, probated June 16, 1760, mentions 5 sons and 5 daughters. The first children were probably born at Colchester, others were recorded at Lebanon, and the last 5 in Hebron. Records of this family are found in "One of the Gilberts in New England", and the Carter Genealogy.
From "The Gilbert Family, Descendants of Thomas Gilbert, 1582-1659", by H. W. Brainerd, H. S. Gilbert, and C.A. Torrey; New Haven, 1953:
Samuel Gilbert probably resided in Hartford until 1707 and removed with his father to Colchester in that year. There is a possibility that he went northward to Northfield or Deerfield, for there he met his wife, Mercy Warner. After his marriage he located not in Colchester, but in the town of Lebanon. His children were baptized by the pastor at Lebanon until 1717. About this time he removed and settled in Gilead parish of Hebron and continued there until the end of his days. He was appointed Ensign of the North Company or Trainband in the town of Hebron in 1745 and Captain of the Trainband in Gilead parish in 1749. His will (Colchester Probate Records, vol 3, p. 56) dated Sep 20, 1754, mentions 5 sons and 5 daughters. His estate, personal only was 161 pounds. He was a large landowner.
His family record begins before that of his father ends. Some have assigned to him Lydia. b. Sep 4, 1707, and Mercy, b. Oct 4, 1708. But in his will he mentioned not a daughter Lydia or her heirs. Hence we conclude that Abilena was his oldest child. There are other indications that this is the correct assignment.
Jun 22, 1712, Mercy, wife of Samuel Gilbert, publicly owned the covenant at Lebanon.
