      ---------
      70. Arvilla or Aurora
      (Others are said to include Irwin and Grace. There are records of one
      daughter's family in Champlain, but her marriage is not proven. The sons,
      if any living, probably did not go to Carlisle, but daughters' children
      did.)
      From his father's estate, land on Birchard's Plain was set off to
      Eli, next his brother Andrew, in 1767. He spent his childhood there, and
      was a resident of Norwich when he enlisted. Boys over 12 yrs. usually
      passed for the military age of 16, but we still think it probable he was
      with one or both of his older brothers. There are no records of Conn.
      service of any Pember in the Revolution, listed on Rolls. The Vt. Rolls
      record his services there; during the latter part of that service he live d
      in Vermont. In fact, he was at home while guarding the frontier at
      Castleton. (His wages for 10 mo. was 20£). Poultney has a few Grand List s
      of 1785-1795, and Eli appears on them. If his mother Irene was living, sh e
      was with either Eli or Andrew in Vermont. (see Census of Andrew) The 1790
      Census gives Eli's family as himself and 3 females of all ages. Records o f
      the sale of his Poultney land were lost, and we do not know the date of
      his removal, which was a little before 1800.
      He settled first in Canada; many of his neighbors and comrades were
      moving north and settling near the head of Lake Champlain. Soon he decide d
      on Champlain, Clinton Co., N. Y. and lived there 25 yrs. or more. The
      earliest record of him in Dr. Benjamin Moore's account book is dated
      Page 79
      June 28, 1802. July 13, 1805, is the item "to visit Aurora." (?), Among
      the papers of Judge Pliny Moore is mention of a lease to Eli Pember of 3/ 4
      Saw-mill House; Dec. 30, 1808. And from his journal: "Apl 16, 1809,
      Rose Pember lost. "No further item is found to relieve our suspense about
      Rose. She could have been a daughter of either Eli or Andrew, or Andrew's
      granddaughter, if a young child. She had namesakes among the descendants
      of Ethan A. No Pember burials have been found in the Champlain Cemetery,
      laid out 1799.
      From a tax list of Champlain in 1823, we find that Eli owned a farm
      of 40 A. on Lot No. 16 of the Refugee Grant. "This lot forms the N. W.
      corner of the town of Champlain, near the settlement known as Perry's
      Mills." (The mills owned by Col. Scheifflin from E. Westchester, N. Y.,
      were bought in 1819 by George Perry.) The Refugee Grants were for honorab le
      service performed in the Revolution. "At the close of the Revolution, New
      York State granted a tract 231,540 A. in the N. E. and central parts of
      Clinton Co. to Refugees from Canada and the United States. The lands were
      divided into 80A. and 420A. lots, except 5000A. which was divided into 15
      equal lots and granted to officers and privates among these Refugees."
      (Hurd's Hist. Clinton Co., p 25.) A list of settlers before 1800 contains
      no Pember.
      Eli was living in Ohio in 1832. If he accompanied his nephews, the
      date of leaving Champlain was about 1828/9. His order daughters. had
      been married and settled long before that date. The following facts are
      from his Pension claim W. 2335:
      While a resident of Norwich, Conn., he enlisted in Oct., 1775 and
      served one year as private in Captain Daniel Throop's Co., Col. Burrall's
      Conn. regiment, during which he was on the expedition to Canada, was in
      the battles of Chambly, Quebec, the Cedars, and Three Rivers. He enlisted
      in the spring of 1777, served as private in Captain Silas Howe's company,
      Col. Mead's Vermont regiment and was in the battle of Hubbardton; on
      July 12, 1777, he enlisted and served seven months as corporal in Captain
      Ebenezer Allen's company, Col. Herrick's Vermont regiment, during Which
      he was in the battle of Bennington, in both battles of Stillwater, and le d
      a detachment of forty men on an expedition to Split Rock and took many
      prisoners, also horses and cattle, without the loss of any of his men. He
      enlisted in April, 1778, and served two months as private in Captain Jess e
      Sawyer's company, Col. Robertson's Vermont regiment; he enlisted in
      July, 1778, served two weeks as private in Captain Dewey's Company, Col.
      Robertson's regiment, and from sometime in September, 1778, served three
      weeks in that same company; he enlisted in February, 1779, and served two
      months as private in Captain William Hutchins' company, Major Whitcomb's
      Rangers; he enlisted Feb. 1, 1780, and served ten months as corporal in
      Captain William Hutchins' company, under Major Ebenezer Allen; he enliste d
      Oct. 15, 1781, and served fifteen days as corporal in Captain Isaac
      Tichenor's company, Col. Ebenezer Walbridge's Vermont regiment; in 1782,
      he served under Major Bronson in the defense of the frontiers, length of
      this service not given.
      After the Revolutionary War, Eli Pember lived a part of the time in
      Lower Canada, a part of the time in Champlain, NY., after which he moved
      to Lorain Co., Ohio. It was stated that he served in the War o 1812, no
      details of this service given.
      Page 80
      He was allowed pension on his application executed Aug. 2, 1832, at
      which time he resided in Carlisle Township, Lorain Co., Ohio. He died
      there June 22, 1851. (The nearest town is now Oberlin. The graveyard
      used by all early Pembers was at "Murray Ridge".)
      Clarissa Pember, the soldier's widow, was allowed pension on her
      application executed Feb. 14, 1858, at which time she resided in Carlisle
      Township, Lorain Co., Ohio. She applied April 19, 1855, for the bounty
      land which was due under the Act of Mar. 3, 1855, on account of the servi ce
      of her husband, Eli Pember, in the Revolutionary War. She was allowed
      160A of bounty land under warrant No. 11417, by the United States. Joshua
      Myres and John V. Coon, both of Elyria, Lorain Co., Ohio, were with said
      Clarissa Pember when she made application for bounty land. (Ervin Pember
      had made affidavit in 1853 in her behalf.)
      The Land Office states that Clarissa's right 11417- 160A. of public
      lands was sold to John M. Vincent, value received, Mar. 6, 1856, in Lorai n
      Co., Ohio. John M Vincent located the warrant on the N. W. 1/4 sec. 12,
      Tier 24 N., Row 1 E., in the district of lands subject to sale at La Cros se,
      Wis. Patent for that tract was issued to him Apr. 3, 1858. (La Crosse Co.
      has no records of that time.)
      Clarissa Pember died Sept. 1, 1858, in Wood Co., Ohio. John K. Hord
      was appointed administrator in 1861 by the Probate Court of. Seneca Co.,
      Ohio, and the arrears of pension, Mar. to Sept., 1858, were paid to him.
      (How were the Hurds related to Clarissa?)

      Moore
      Judge Pliny Moore, (son of Noahdiah 1730-1786) b. Apr. 14, 1759,
      Sheffield, Mass; d. Aug. 18, 1822, Ae 68, Champlain, N. Y; m. 1787, Mary
      Corbin, dau. John Corbin of Conn. ch: Noadiah, b. 1788, Kinderhook, N. Y. ,
      et al.
      Judge Moore was the first permanent American settler in Champlain in
      1787. Among the 18 proprietors he had the lion's share, -50 lots. In 1797
      he opened a land office. His residence was on the" Moorfield Patent." In
      1807 he was appointed Judge. Some of his papers are in the possession of
      descendants.
      ---------
      Haskell
      Eliphalet Hascal settled in Altona before 1810, on the Duerville Pat ent,
      and kept tavern at the sign of the large moose antlers.
      ---------
      Note that Judge Moore was of Sheffield, as were several Poultney fam ilies,
      Ashleys, Owens, Ebenezer Allen. Many Poultney men went north when Pember s did,
      and some from their Poultney home settled in Clinton Co.-Priest, Richards , Hurd,
      Van Deusen, Hambleton, Squier, Hosford, Allen.
      ---------
      Note other possible children of Eli might have gone with their cousi ns to
      Sorel, Canada.
      A Pember said to have m. Betsey Squier, b. abt. 1795 and res. Carlis le,
      must have been Eli's son, unless one of Ira's sons, and they were younge r than
      that birth date.
      There is a line from an intermarriage with Briggs, one with Stryke r or
      Stryver in Western N. Y., one with Hambleton. The Briggs line may be th e same
      as allied to descendants of Augustan.
      (See Briggs Rist. Concord.) Buffalo Hist, Soc. Rec. as follows:
      Isaac. Baker m. Sarah B. Hambleton Sept. 4, 1850. Also
      Pember E. Hambleton m. Minerva Atterbury Nov. 28, 1878.
      Fam. Rec. has, Pember Erotus Hambleton was son of Amos (William of Penn.,
      William, William of Eng.) and Mercy Ann (Briggs) Hambleton. The Briggs ar e desc.
      from John Briggs of Wales. Mr. Pember Hambleton resided at Orchard Park , Erie Co.,
      N. Y., formerly called E. Hamburg. His desc. believe ancestors were onc e of
      Vermont.

      Hebard, Hibbard
      Ithamar Hebard b. Canaan, Ct., served as Chaplain in Rev., res. at o ne time
      in Norwich Ct., was an intimate friend of the Pember-4 brothers in Ct. an d Vt.
      and in War, and probably related by marriage. He was one of the earlies t arrivals
      in Wells, established a home, and was Town Representative 1778-9, but ha d removed
      to East Poultney by 17S0, and became pastor of that church. While pasto r in
      Poultney, he usually administered communion in the Middletown Congo Chh , which had
      not yet settled a pastor. Mrs. William Frisbie and Mrs. Joel Frisbie of M iddletown
      were his sisters. East Poultney was the home church of the Andrew and El i Pember
      families during their stay in Poultney, and Rev. Hebard their pastor.
      He is said to have been a poet, as well as a pious man and a preache r; the
      leading men of Vermont often consulted him on public matters. The road pa st his
      church was the one kept hot by the "Green Mountain Boys" in those activ e days.
      Ethan Allen quotes Rev. Hebard in his "History of Vermont", pub. London , 1798. The
      story of his "persecution" and the church controversy may be found in Vt . Gazeteer
      under Poultney, Hubbardton, et al. Those writers call it the beginning o f the
      anti-Masonic movement in Vermont. Anyway some of his membership thought h im
      old-fashioned, and another minister was engaged. He was pastor of Cong. C hh of
      Hubbardton, Vt., 1798-1802, and d. Mar. 2, 1802.
      These town histories give him about 2O ch, some of them ministers. T he 1700
      Census counts 8 ch at home.
      Ithamer, b. Dec. 19, 1768, Norwich, Ct. (Norwich V. R.) Was he eldest?
      Rev. Ebenezer was minister in Brandon Chh I800-182O.
