  • Name John Seagrave 
    • The Genealogy of the Seagrave Family notes that "John Seagrave, b. in England about 1724, came to this country with hi brother Edward, when about 5 years of age. What his avocation was, is not known, but probably was that of a Farmer. Neither is it known whether he ever married; but it appears he contemplated such a step, by the following extract from the records of the town of Uxbridge [MA] of Intentions of Marriage fro 1757: 'John Seagrave to Elizabeth Johnson.' No record of their marriage however is found.
      "During the French [and Indian] war, as it is called, 1755-63, he enlisted into the army and served as a private, till his decease during the winter of 1760-1, the precise date of which cannot be ascertained. He was stationed at Crown Point and vicinity during his term of service." [1]
    • "It is said that he [John Seagrave] was a man of large stature, and of almost gigantic strength." [1]

"Tradition says that he fell sick of small-pox during the march of the army over the Green Mountains, and was left to die there. inferring from records extant, it would appear that he died in 'the country of the upper Ashuelot,' now embracing Keene and vicinity in the State of New Hampshire, and that his remains were removed to Uxbridge by his brother, Edward, and there interred."
