History of Wells and Kennebunk… excerpt about Thomas and son Abner Wormwood[8]

“on the Mousam below was the Larrabee village, consisting on one side of Larrabee’s, Littlefield’s, and Look’s houses, the latter of which was occupied by John Butland, Look having moved to Saco.  Below was the house of Thomas Wormwood, and forty rods further down, on the edge of the highland, that of John Freeze.  Above , near the river, opposite the gravel bed, the house of Samuel Emons.  On the western side of the river was the house of Thomas Wormword, jr., where the late Abner Wormwood lived, and above, at the foot of the pasture of the late Geo. W. Wallingford, Esq., was the house of Edward Evans, the cellar of which is still to be seen.  The houses of John Look and Thomas Wormwood were garrisoned, each of them protected by a wall, twelve fee high, made of large timber, extending to the eaves of the house, and sufficiently far from it to leave an intervening space wide enough for all the out-door work.  Below, on the Great Hill, was the house built by Samuel Sawyer, since occupied by John Burks.  At the eastward of the rive, a little below the Wentworth house, on the opposite side of the road, was the house of John Webber, and beyond, where the Smith house now stands, was a small house of Richard Boothby.

Abijah WORMWOOD: History or York County

War of the Revolution

During the Revolutionary war which followed [Indian Wars], Wells contributed largely to the army.  At times it is believed, at least one-third of the able-bodied men were in the service; no other town furnished great number of officers. …

Sometimes the people were driven to the utmost extremities to proved for enlistments, the quotas required drawing largely on the population.  The bounties demanded exhausted their pecuniary ability, so that some were obliged to take the feathers from their beds, send them to Boston and sell them, to meet their proportion of these public burdens. …

The following persons belonging to Wells enlisted in the company of Capt. Jesse Dorman, of Arundel: Ezekiel Wakefield, sergeant; John Fisk, John Hubbard, James Smith, Abijah Wormwood, Daniel Meader, Moses Drown, Edmund Littlefield, Moses Blaisdell.

… This service was one of great hardship and expose.  They marched to New York; thence to Albany, Lake Champlain, St. John’s Montreal; thence up the Cedars sixty miles; thence back to St. John’s, where most of them had the smallpox; thence to Ticonderoga and Albany, Newton and Trenton, where they were discharged.

In the War of 1812 few or non enlisted, the feeling of nearly all the people being opposition to it.[11]

 

Abijah WORMWOOD History of Kennebunk

Capt. Jesse Dorman of Arundel, commanded a company in Col. Scamman’s regiment at Cambridge in 1776.  Ezekiel Wakefield, sergeant, John Hubbard and Abijah Wormwood, privates, were among those who enlisted with him and it is believed were residents in the Second Parish.  Bradbury says of Dorman: “He was not without perils in war or in peace.  In 1793 a violent tornado unroofed his house, and he was with hs bed and bedding was blown several rods from it.  Three of his sons were in the army.  He was a liutenant in the old French war and wounded in the battle Lake George in 1758.”

 

Abijah WORMWOOD Excerpt from a letter written:[12]

“And Ah friend, you little realize the fortitude of ye yeomanry of this and other families of our town in those, and the later time when they sought to establish independence from the King–for did not Abijah Wormwood write to his friends here at home in 1776 from Mt. Independence, Ticonderoga, that he had suffered everything but death in the service– from want of provisions. He had also experienced defeat, and had been captured by the savages, but yet he blessed God that his life was spared when many of his soldier comrades had fallen about him.”

Elizabeth Wormwood

Elizabeth WORMWOOD is my first cousin seven times removed; we are related through her grandparents, Thomas and Jane (COLE) WORMWOOD, my 7th great grandparents.  Elizabeth was born 19 July 1741 to Thomas and Hannah (EVANS) WORMWOOD, the oldest of eight children.  She was baptized 19 July 1740/1 at the First Church of Wells, Maine.[1]  Elizabeth does not show up in any records after her birth, there are many Elizabeth WORMWOOD’s in that time period, but none that can be her if her birth is correct.  If you have any information to help with documenting her life, I’d appreciate it.

Abijah WORMWOOD

Abijah WORMWOOD is my first cousin, seven times removed.  He is the grandson of my seventh great grandparents, Thomas and Jane (COLE) WORMWOOD.  He was born 8 July 1753 to Thomas and Hannah (EVANS) WORMWOOD, probably in Wells, York, Maine.  He joined Col. James Scamman’s [Scammon’s] Regiment, under Capt. Jesse Dorman’s Company on 8 May 1775.[1]  There is little information on his enlistment that has been found thus far.  One record stated that he appears on a list of men raised in the county of York in the state of Massachusetts, for the purpose of filling up and completing the fifteen Battalions of Continental troops directed to be raised for the term of nine months from the time of their arrival at Fishkill.  There are a few cards stating dates with his name on them, but none state his birth, or parent’s names.  In the book History of York County, there is some information stating that “the people of the area were driven to the utmost extremes to provide for enlistments, the quotas required drawing largely on the population.  The bounties demanded exhausted their money and some were driven to sell the feathers from their beds in Boston to afford the bounty”.  There is also quoted in a few different sources from a letter he wrote to some friends talking about the hardships, and that he was briefly captured by Indians.    Due to the stress of this war on the area, very few joined the War of 1812; nearly all were in opposition to it.  There are no more mentions of him after the Revolutionary War, what happened to him?  I do believe he survived the war as no records of his death are listed with others from the area.  I can find no land bounties, or other records of trying to collect money from the government after the war; no civil actions nor deeds.  I truly would be grateful to anyone who does have more information on this cousin.
