Revolutionary War Officer. Samuel Elmore was born in Norwalk, Connecticut on January 19, 1720 and was a farmer in Sharon. He served as a Captain and company commander in the 3rd Connecticut Regiment during the French and Indian War. In 1775 he was appointed a Major in the 4th Connecticut Regiment. He served at Ticonderoga and Crown Point, sided with Ethan Allen during Allen's dispute with Benedict Arnold over command, and was assaulted by Arnold. From 1775 to 1776 he was Lieutenant Colonel of David Wooster's Regiment.

In 1776 he was appointed Colonel of a Continental Army regiment he raised from Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York. In 1777 Elmore's Regiment served at Fort Stanwix, New York and battled Barry St. Leger's troops as they advanced from Canada during Burgoyne's expedition. Elmore's sons served in the Revolution, and one, Samuel, Jr. was killed. In 1780 Elmore, his sons Martin and Jesse, and more than 60 others, many of them Revolutionary War veterans, were granted a Vermont town. They named the town and the lake within it after Colonel Elmore, and he moved there in 1791. He died in Elmore on August 23, 1805 and is buried in Lake Elmore Cemetery.
