Ancestors of Gabriella Faith Carr

Generation No. 8


      160. Bethuel Luce, born Abt. 1741 in Holmes Hole, Tisbury, Dukes Co., Ma; died Bet. 1790 - 1801 in Vinalhaven, Knox Co., Me. He was the son of 320. Malatiah Luce and 321. Eleanor Harlow. He married 161. Susanna H Norton Oct 18, 1765 in Edgartown, Dukes Co., Ma.

      161. Susanna H Norton, born Aug 15, 1742 in Edgartown, Dukes Co., Ma; died Abt. 1815. She was the daughter of 322. Timothy Norton and 323. Lydia [--?--].

Notes for Bethuel Luce:

death date is probably inaccurate here, it is the same date given for his father, Malatiah.
double check other sources.
----------
Bethuel Luce was a pvt in Capt Mayhew's Co, Mar-Nov 1759
in the French and Indians War, and possibly fought with Wolfe at Quebec.

The history of Vinalhaven, Maine, written in 1889 states that
He came to Maine in 1765?(may have been later) bringing his 3 sons
Malatiah, Elijah, & Uriah with him. Since Uriah was not born until 1781,
this statement is questionable. Probable immigration date about 1775
with 2 sons and a daughter, Lydia. The 1790 census lists Bethuel in
"Vinalhaven Town" on the island of North Haven off the coast of Maine.

His lot was known as Luce and Hooper Farms (adhisthlmvp28)
