    He was farmer and helped with his sons to build & own the first sawmill, g ristmill and ironworks in Sharon, Litchfield, Connecticut. Ebenezer al so served in various town offices. The Sharon Historical Society now stan ds on the lot he bought in 1738 and later sold to Cornelius Hamlin in 174 0. In 1743, Ebenezer settled on the western border of "Mudge Pond" a beau tiful lake on the outskirts of Sharon. A section of Sharon once was call ed Mudge Town. At the time of Ebenezer's death in 1758 his widow and livi ng children signed an agreement to settle the estate without administratio n. What was unusual is that all the children signed their names. This is c onsidered remarkable since many high educated families of the time could n ot write.
