About Deacon Moses Dimon

Biography

Moses Dimon, eldest son of MOSES DIMON and JANE PINCKNEY, married Hannah Gilbert, daughter of Moses and Jane Gilbert of Fairfield. About the time of their marriage Moses moved from his father's residence in the town of Fairfield and settled at Greenfield Hill, a thriving agricultural community about 3 miles north of Fairfield. When Greenfield Hill citizens established their own Congregational Church in 1725, MOSES joined with them in the effort. In 1726, church members chose him to serve as one of the first Greenfield deacons.

That same year he was elected lieutenant of the North Society Company of militia. In 1752, he rose to the rank of captain in what was then known as the Greenfield Company of militia. Moses also served a justice from 1745 until 1766.

Moses died at Greenfield Hill on Nov. 28 1766. He was buried in the village cemetery, but the tombstone which once marked his grave has disappeared.
