farmer, and on ID April, 1775, was a sergeant in Captain Tiniothy 
Walker^s company of Wilmington in Colonel Green's regiment of 
Mass. militia (iMass. Archives, Vol. 13: 158). He died 12 March, 
1824, at Windham, N. 11. (photograph of record), llis father's 
cousin Lydia Jaques manied Kendal Pearson of Witminirton, Mass., 
and this may have been the reason why he first went to Wilmington. 
On 12 Sept. 17G5, Joimthan BoutoU, Jr., of Wilmington, sold 20 
acrwof land with one dwelling-house ami barn thereon in Wilming- 
ton to Moses Noyes of Wilmington (05: 541) at Kast Cambridge). 
On '29 March, 1787, Moses Noyes of Wilmington hold lands and 
building iu Wilmington to Jonathan Carter of W^ilmingion, deed 
signed by Moses Noyes and Phebe Noyes (97: 300 at East Cam- 
bridge). In 1787 the name of Moses Noyes appears iu the tax 
books of Wilton, N. II. (selectmen's records). On 19 Nov. 1789, 
Moses Noyes of Wilton, N. H., yeoman, sold 100 acres of land with 
buildings thereon iu Wilton, N. II., to Pierce Gage of Pelham, 
N. H., husbandman, deed signed by Moses Noyes and Phebe Noyes 
(27: 224 at Nashua, N. H.). On 23 Nov. 1789, William Simpson

Aooouut book gives the correct date oi* birth anil names of the pa- 


rents of his fftther, Moses, which are incorrectly ^yei\ in Morrison's 
History of Wiudham, N. H., page 703. Mr. Morrison writes me 
that his informant only knew that Moses died iu Windham, N. II., 
12 March, 1824, aged 80 years, and thut ho was born in Newbury, 
Mass., but not knowing his parents' names unfortunately selected 
the wrong Moses, not thinking tliat two of the same name would be 
recorded among the Newbury births within a year of each other.
