Children with Anna/4a Brooks:

  • Benjamin/5a Hoar2 b. 9 Mar 1751, d. 13 Dec 1752
  • Benjamin/5a Hoar2 b. 8 Jul 1753, d. 28 Sep 1753

Benjamin/5 Hoar Jr. was born 21 May 1717 in that part of Concord, Massachusetts which is now Lincoln.1,2 He married, 28 May 1750 at Westford, Anna/4a Brooks, daughter of Daniel/3a Brooks and Anna (–?–).3 One of the 18 men who covenanted to organize a church at New Ipswich, New Hampshire, 1760.4 Benja Hoar marched with the New Ipswich company, at daylight of 20 Apr 1775, to Cambridge following the Lexington alarm, and was credited with 7 days' service.5 Chosen to the town's Committee of Safety and Correspondence, 10 Mar 1777.6 He died at New Ipswich 14 Feb 1799, a. 81.2
     "He passed his youth in Littleton, coming thence to New Ipswich in 1742 or earlier, being preceded by only Abijah Foster and wife and Jonas Woolson. Probably he did not marry until several years later, at all events her coming to the new home was delayed. He settled upon V:2, S.R., and built a house near the river, a quarter-mile from the earlier structure of Jonas Woolson. The history of that early dwelling is not unlike that of that earlier neighbor, as in due time it was supplemented by a large two-storied building, and when age required further change the older part was rebuilt; the resulting building standing on its original site, and long known as the 'Champney house,' is still [1914] a serviceable dwelling."2

Local Notes:

Property15 Mar 1693/94, Concord, MA"John Wheeler Senior of Concord, son and apparent heir to George Wheeler late of said Concord dec'd quitclaims to William, John and George Wheeler, all his right title and interest in certain lands in the south part of Concord 'that were in the possession of their father William Wheeler deceased.6'"
Electedfrom 1710 to 1713, Concord, MASelectman.7
Property15 Mar 1693/94Hannah (Buss) Wheeler's administration of her husband William's estate caused dissension among the children. Tolman abstracts a second agreement of 15 Mar 1694 which sets forth that "Whereas William Wheeler late of Concord died some time since, possessed of several lands of which he had no legal conveyance as also of a competency of personal or moveable estate,—but as yet there hath been no final settlement of said estate,—and there being a considerable part of said moveable estate is wasted one way or other and doth not appear, and the rest of which is disposed of by Hannah, relict of the sd Wm Wheeler, and for a final settlement of the whole remaining part of the sd estate, amongst the children of the sd Wm Wheeler, and to prevent any further trouble and contention about the premises and to settle peace and unity that may be lasting, they, viz: William Wheeler, John Wheeler and George Wheeler, sons to the sd Wm deceased, upon their own accounts, and Nicholas Shavalley on the behalf of Rebeckah his wife of sd Concord, and James Burley of Ipswich on the behalf of Elizabeth his wife, both daughters of sd Wm Wheeler dec'd, do agree in manner and form following," as to the division of the property, by virtue of which agreement Wm (16) as oldest son had a double share of the real estate, and John (19) and George (20) and the two younger sons divided the rest, and the personal property was parcelled out among the daughters. The land was all in the Nine Acre Corner district, and some of it is in the family to this day."8
