      ...I am related to the Hanson family. Mary Hanson, Micajah Hanson?s daughter Mary is my Great Great Great Grandmother and she married William Lovewell (Lovell). Micajah is buried in the Lovell Cemetery in Barnston, Quebec (refer to Internment.net under Lovell Cemetery). As you probably know he married Nancy Rogers. I am trying to locate any information on where William Lovewell originated from in the US (pretty sure New England) with no luck. I have a record that he came to Canada during the War of 1812 or possibly before. If you happen to have any information about William Lovewell I would really really appreciate it. I have some limited information on the Hansons which I would be pleased to share. Regards, Kelly M. Smith (Mr.)...

      MASS VITAL RECORD CDS = -0- William Lovewell, but it does eliminate that he was born in MA. The Lovewell family was in NH and then went to VT. Corinth VT would be where there may be records on William.

      Genealogical Dictionary of New England - James Savage:
      LOVEWELL, JOHN, Boston 1660, of wh. we kn. nothing exc. that he
      was witness that yr. to will of Thomas Rawlins. JOHN, Dunstable
      1690, had John, b. 14 Oct. 1691, more celebr. than any youth of his
      time, for serv. and sagac. in Ind. warf. k. at Pequawket 8 May 1725;
      Hannah; Zaccheus, 22 July 1701, wh. was col. of a N. H. regim. in
      the last French war, 1759; and Jonathan, 14 May 1713, a preach. rep.
      and judge. See Farmer and Moore's Coll. I. 57, and III. 64; Belkn. I.
      208 and 319; Fox, Hist. of D. 246. He, with the comm. exagger. of
      his age, is said popularly to have been 20 yrs. old, and prob. was near
      100 at his d. a. 1754.
      John Lovewell Savage refers to is the husband of Hannah.
      Dunstable MA published vital records:
      John Lovewell married Anna Hassell, Dec 7, 1686 CT.R. (Court Record, Middsex County Court)
      Hannah died Jan 5, 1754 N.R.
      John died July 2, 1763 N.R.
      John Oct 14, 1691 N.R.
      Hana Sept 2[torn] after 1691 N.R.
      Zacheous July 22, 1701 N.R.
      Jonathan May 14, 1713 N.R.
      John June 30, 1718 N.R.
      Hanah July 24, 1721 N.R.
      Lovwell,Nehemiah Jan 9, 1726-7 N.R.

      The data on the Lovewell family in the Dunstable MA [Middlesex Co] published vital records was taken from the First Book of Dunstable Town Records at City Hall in Dunstable NH, which is indicated by N.R. at the end of the records.

      Zaccheus Lovewell, born July 22, 1701 was colonel of a NH regiment in the last French War, which took place 1754-1763. Col Zaccheus Lovewell died April 12, 1772 in his 72nd yr GR5. GR5 is Gravestone record, Little Cemetery, South Nashua NH.

      Dunstable MA marriages, Pg 156 Lovewell, Nehemiah & Rachel Farwell both of Dunstable NH Nov 24, 1748 N.R.

      There is a Dunstable NH and a Marlborough NH which is probably where this family was located at one time. There was no William Lovewell listed in the records of Dunstable MA, it is probably Dunstable NH. There is no Hepsibah Taplin born in Marlborough MA it may have been Marlborough NH.

      Did find John Taplin married Hepsibah Brigham, Worcester County in Southborough MA published vital records, March 21, 1748-9. No children born to them in Southborough MA.

      The beginning of the Dunstable MA published vital records book indicates:
      Dunstable MA was incorporated Oct 16, 1673 upon the petition of 26 proprietors of lands along the Merrimack, Nashua and Souhegan rivers. It was named from Dunstable in Bedfordshire England, the former home of some of the earliest settlers of that locality.
      Jan 4, 1733 part established as Nottingham NH.
      July 4, 1735 part included in the new town of Litchfield NH.
      By the divisional line established in 1741, between MA and NH, a large part of the original township, together with what is now Nashua NH, was included in the latter state.

      I checked my NH Families disk and there is nothing on Lovewell, this disk traces NH families settled in NH before 1699, but it looks like Lovewells went later or were there automatically because of the boundary changes of the divisional line in 1741.

      Another disk I have:
      Local and Family Histories: New England, 1600-1900s
      "In 1724, Capt. John Lovewell was authorized by the Massachusetts legislature to raise a company of men to "range and keep out in the woods in order to kill and destroy the enemy Indians." He was to receive a bounty of one hundred pounds for each scalp secured. With thirty men, he went up the Pemigewasset valley. In Campton they surprised a man and a boy in a wigwam. They killed the man and took his scalp, but carried the boy to Boston as a captive. In January, 1725, Capt. Lovewell marched over the same ground again with a larger party. At the mouth of Squam river they turned aside to "Casumpe pond," where they killed a black moose. Here, too, they struck the trail of a party of ten Indians. They hastily pursued and overtook the savages, whom they found sleeping at night in a camp near a frozen pond in what is now Wakefield. They killed every man, took their scalps, stretched them on
      poles and carried them in triumph to Boston, and were paid $5,000 for their valor. Capt. Lovewell met his death only a few months later in a fight with the savages at Fryeburg, Me., when he and twelve of his men were killed and twenty-two wounded."

      The HISTORY OF PEMBROKE NH has quite a bit on John Lovewell, describing the whole fight when he was killed. Quite something to read on Thanksgiving Day.

      Also found in the same history of Pembroke NH:
      "NOTE.--Captain Lovewell was born in Dunstable Oct. 14, 1691. His father was John Lovewell, an ensign in the army of Oliver Cromwell about 1653, who died about 1754 at the great age of 120 years or more. He married Hannah (???) (???) and had three children,--John, born June 30, 1718, and died July 2, 1763; Hannah, born July 24, 1721, who married Capt. Joseph Baker, and settled in Pembroke; and NEHEMIAH, born Jan. 9, 1726, and marrying Rachel, daughter of Jonathan Farwell, went to Corinth, Vt., where he died, leaving a numerous family. Captain Lovewell's widow married for a second husband a man by the name of Smith, and died Jan. 5, 1754."

      [Corinth VT maybe would have records on the family of Nehemiah.]

      Same history -
      "George W. Stone, David Farrington, Joseph Baker, Jr., David Fowler, Stephen and Levi Baker, Joseph Baker, Lovewell Baker, Capt. Joseph Baker ??. This was first division lot No. 55, and was drawn by heirs of Capt. John Lovewell. Capt. Baker married Hannah, only daughter of Capt. John Lovewell, and early settled upon this lot.
      Capt. Baker was a man of note in his time. In 1758, Gov. Benning Wentworth commissioned him "Captain of the foot Company in the place commonly called and known by the name of Suncook, in Col. Zacheus Lovewell's Regiment." Capt. John Lovewell had two sons, John and Nehemiah. Nehemiah was born after the death of his father. In 1738, John Lovewell deeded to Capt. Baker all his claim or right in the township of Suncook. In 1746, Nehemiah Lovewell deeded to Capt. Baker all his right in said township. On account of the controversy with the
      proprietors of Bow, and the claim made by said proprietors for the lands of said Suncook, John and Nehemiah Lovewell, in 1756, gave Capt. Baker an obligation that they would share with him all loss on account of the said claim, whether he was obliged to give up the land, or pay Bow proprietors for it."

      So it looks like if William Lovewell born 1790 was the grandson of Nehemiah and Rachel Lovewell he would probably have been born in Corinth, VT. (Report by Cindy)
