About Ebenezer Husted
HUESTEAD, Ebenezer, (modern orthography Husted) of Huguenot ancestry, was the first of the name in this locality. The Husteds settled in now Stanford which town was taken from Washington in 1793, and in 1798 and '99, Joseph, Asher, Ananias, Ebenezer, Jethro, Reuben, Caleb, Nicholas and Matthew, each a Husted, lived in Stanford. Of these Ebenezer is the only one to my knowing of the lineage I am tracing. Ebenezer Huestead, above, came from Horseneck, Fairfield County, Conn. There were many settlers there by that name, Angell Heusted being one of the "27 Proprietors of 1672." Ebenezer purchased a farm of Isaac Thorne in 1750 on Lot 26, Great Nine Partners, then in the Precinct of "Crom Elbow," later Charlotte Precinct, and later still the town of Washington. In his will of 1785 he mentions two sons, Ebenezer and Silas, and two daughters, Mary and Hannah.
