Asa LADD

Asa LADD is my second cousin eight times removed; related through John and Ruth (SWAN) HARTSHORN.  He is said to have died in Suffolk County, Massachusetts on 17 June 1775 which happens to be the date of the Battle of Bunker Hill.  I can find no records of him being involved in the battle, but, due to his location and the date of his death, and the fact that he died in a county he didn’t live in, it’s a safe bet that he died in battle or wounds sustained while in battle.

Asa LADD was born 16 March 1736 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, there are some conflicting recordings in some books with date 10 March 1735.[1]  He was the son of Daniel and Mehitable (ROBERTS) LADD.  He died 17 June 1775 in Suffolk, Massachusetts.  Asa married twice; first he married Sarah MERRILL 28 December 1757 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[2]  Sarah was born 27 February 1735 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[3]  She was the daughter of Samuel and Ruth (EATON) MERRILL.  She died between 1762 and 1765 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[4]  Asa married second to Hannah CLOUGH in Massachusetts about 1765 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[5]  Hannah was born 18 February 1742 in Salem, Rockingham, New Hampshire.[6]  She was the daughter of Jethro and Mary (DUSTIN) CLOUGH. Hannah married second to Moses MERRILL 28 November 1782 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[7]

Asa and Sarah had the following children:

  1. Sarah LADD born 24 September 1758 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[8] She married Phineas CLOUGH 29 December 1778. Phineas was born 16 April 1749 in Salem, Rockingham, New Hampshire.[9]   He was the son of Josiah and Abigail (HASTINGS) CLOUGH.  She and Phineas disappear from all Massachusetts state records after their marriage.  They had 1 daughter.
  2. Asa LADD born 9 January 1762 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[10] He died 1 June 1851.  Asa married twice; first he married Martha CHASE 14 September 1784in Haverhill, Grafton, New Hampshire by Moses Dow, Justice of the Peace.[11]  Martha was born about 1766 in Enosburg, Franklin, Vermont.  She died 11 June 1820 in Enosburg Falls, Franklin, Vermont.  They had 10 children. Asa married second to Elizabeth DEMMING in 1830.  Elizabeth was born in 1766 in Enosburg Falls, Franklin, Vermont.  She died in 1844.  They had no children.

Asa and Hannah had the following children:

  1. Richard LADD born 14 April 1766 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[12] He married Betty WOODMAN 9 December 1790 in Hopkinton, Merrimack, New Hampshire by Reverend Mr. CRAM.[13]  They divorced before 1803.[14]  They had 1 son.  Betty was born 11 May 1764 in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts.[15]  She was the daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (BANCROFT) WOODMAN.  Betty died 1854 in Hopkinton, Merrimack, New Hampshire.  Betty married second to Benjamin FELLOWS 28 June 1803 in New Hampshire.[16]
  2. Dustan LADD born 1 July 1768 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[17] Twin of Dudley LADD.
  3. Dudley LADD 1 July 1768 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[18] He died before 1771.  Twin to Dustan LADD.
  4. Dudley LADD born 30 January 1771 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[19]
  5. Merrill LADD born 12 January 1773 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[20]
  6. Dilley Sarah LADD born 19 November 1775 in Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts.[21] She died 7 June 1842 in Rockport, Essex, Massachusetts.  Dilley married Clement CASTELL/CASTLE at St. John the Baptist in Margate, Kent, England.[22]  Clement was born 1768 in England.  He was the son of George and Ann (COCK) CASTLE.

Note:

There is little known about the children of Asa and Hannah, no records other than birth were found in the state.  It could be they took their step-father’s name once the parents married.  As to Dilly Sarah, I believe I have the correct person for the records.  If you find otherwise please let me know.

Abigail KIMBALL and Captain Nathaniel FROST

Abigail KIMBALL is my second cousin six times removed; we are related through Thomas and Margaret (MEANS) GILPATRICK. Her husband Captain Nathaniel FROST is my fifth cousin seven times removed; through Percival and Rebecca Alice (GOODALE) LOWELL.  Nathaniel was merchant with general stores in various locations within Kennebunk, York, Maine over the years from 1793-1817; he was in partnership with Mr. Hackett from 1800-1809.[1]  He was described as genial, active and enterprising.[2]  Nathaniel was in command of a company of horses, I would assume it means he was in the Calvary.[3]

Abigail KIMBALL was born 23 July 1772 in Wells, York, Maine; also listed as 23 July 1772.[4]  She was the daughter of James and Elizabeth (GILPATRICK) KIMBALL.  She died at the home of her son John, 11 February 1849 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[5]  Abigail married Captain Nathaniel FROST 28 June 1798 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[6]  Nathaniel was born 22 January 1774 in Kittery, York, Maine.[7]  He was the son of Brigadier General John and Mary (NOWELL) FROST.  He died either 13 October 1817 or 21 October 1817 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[8]

Abigail and Nathaniel had the following children:

  1. Boy FROST born 10 March 1799 in Wells, York, Maine.[9] He died 10 March 1799 in Wells, York, Maine.[10]  He is interred at the Unitarian Church Cemetery in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[11]  No cause was listed, but I suspect he was stillborn, due to no name on the certificates.
  2. John FROST born 25 January 1800 in Wells, York, Maine.[12] In many of the publications his birth is listed as 26 January 1800 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[13]  He died 28 December 1859 Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[14]  His body is interred at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[15]  John married Sarah Ann BURDETT 4 May 1830 in Boston, Suffolk Massachusetts by Reverent Ralph W. EMERSON.[16]  Sarah Ann was born around 1810 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.  She was the daughter of James White and Mary (RHODES) BURDETT.  She died 29 November 1882 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  She is interred at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.[17]
  3. Nathaniel FROST born 14 April 1802 in Wells, York, Maine.[18] He died 29 August 1803 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[19]  He is interred at the Unitarian Church Cemetery in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[20]
  4. Sarah Elizabeth FROST born 1 April 1804 in Wells, York, Maine.[21] There are a few birth records stating a birth year of 1806, listed with the correct parents and location, but at her death her birth is listed as 1804, so it’s possible the 1806 was the year of her christening and it’s listed mistakenly as her birth.[22]  She died unmarried on 5 September 1868 in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[23]  She was interred at Woodland Cemetery in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[24]  Her probate was conducted in Cheshire County, New Hampshire.
  5. Mary Anne FROST born 28 March 1806 in Wells, York, Maine.[25] She died of paralysis on 13 June 1899 in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[26]  She is interred at Woodland Cemetery in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[27]  Mary married Henry DORR 30 November 1826.[28]  Henry was born 11 December 1779 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.[29]  He was the son of Ebenezer and Abigail (CUNNINGHAM) DORR.  He died 14 August 1850 in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[30]
  6. Nathaniel FROST born 11 June 1808 in Wells, York, Maine.[31] He died 14 July 1868 in New York, New York.  He is interred at Woodland Cemetery in Keene, Cheshire, New Hampshire.[32]
  7. Abigail FROST born 2 January 1811 in Wells, York, Maine.[33] She died 8 February 1816 in Kennebunk, York, Maine.[34]
