      293. William Richard b. July 16, 1883 "
      (From a son, and a newspaper clipping)
      "After his mother's death. Daniel B. lived in the home of a family friend,
      Erastus Hebard, and grew up with their son, Dr. Charles Hebard. (Dr. Charles
      Tilson Hebard was b. 1838. Randolph, son of Erastus-b. 1800 and
      Nancy-Carpenter-Hebard). At Randolph he worked at farming and learned the
      trade of blacksmith. Then he spent a few years as sailor on the Mass. coast
      with his relatives.
      He was one of the first from Randolph to enlist in the Civil War. He enlisted
      June 1, 1861 in Co. E.. Second Vt. Reg. He was in the first battle of Bull Run,
      where he was severely wounded, served out his time and was honorably discharged
      Mar. 10. 1862 and returned to Randolph.
      In the summer of 1863, he went west to the LaCrosse, Wis. tract. and located
      in Gilmanton in Sept. of the same year. Dr. Hebard went with him and settled in
      the adjacent town of Mondovi, and remained his life-long friend.
      Daniel R worked at his trade until Spring, 1864, when he enlisted in the 51st
      Wis., served until the end of the war, and was wounded several times.
      Back in Gilmanton. he conducted a blacksmith shop, and was elected town clerk
      and justice of the peace, holding the latter office until his death.
      He taught school in Gilmanton several years. Some of the students who began
      the study of law under him were later among the best lawyers of the Middle West.
      When any of the neighbors got into difficulties. they came to Daniel R, both
      sides told their storeis and let him decide what was right without a law-suit.
      and both parties went away satisfied. The latter part of his life was spent in
      farming and teaching.
      In the Fall of 1885. he was cutting hay over some rough, boggy meadow, and was
      thrown in front of the sickle-bar, the mower being the old style McCormick
      rear-cut, with the sickle back of the seat. His arm was nearly cut off in two or
      three places. The horses started to run away. but he finally stopped them, got
      loose from the machine, unhooked the horses. and hollered for help. A neighbor
      came to his assistance. bound the arm above the wounds. hitched the horses to a
      light wagon. drove about a mile to Pember's home. and had a young man by the name
      of Lee Howard nearly run his horse to death to overtake Dr. Charles Hebard the
      surgeon. but the loss of blood and the shock was so great that nothing could be
      done, and he passed away at nine o'clock in the evening, aged 54.
      He was beloved by everyone. and people came by the hundreds from all over the
      county to follow the remains to the Cemetery where he was buried by Firnian Post
      No. 196 G. A. R."
