About Samuel Gilbert

Bio Samuel Gilbert probably resided in Hartford until 1707 and removed with his father to Colchester in that year. There is a possibility that he went northward to Northfield or Deerfield, for there he met his wife, Mercy Warner. After their marriage he located not in Colchester, but in the town of Lebanon. His children were baptized by the pastor at Lebanon until 1717. About this time he removed and settled in Gilead Parish of Hebron and continued there until the end of his days. He was appointed Ensign of the North Company or Trainband in the town of Hebron in 1745 and Captain of the Trainband in Gilead Parish in 1749. His will (Colchester Probabate Records, vol. 3, p. 56), dated September 20, 1754, mentions five sons and five daughters. His personal estate was £161.13.06. He was a large landowner.

His first child was born before the youngest child of his parents. Therefore, some have assigned to him Lydia, born September 4, 1707, and Mercy, born October 4, 1708. But in his will he does not mention a daughter, Lydia, or her heirs. Hence, we conclude that Abilena was his oldest child. There are other indications that this is the correct assignment.

On June 22, 1712, Mercy, wife of Samuel Gilbert, publicly owned the covenant at Lebanon.
