About Shubael Claghorn

Shubael(II) was a soldier in the Louisburg Expedition in 1745, a 'Captain in Lumbard's Co., Seventh Mass. Col. Shubael Gorham,' according to Mr. Claghorn. The New England colonists had been growing more and more worried about the huge French fortifications being built at Louisburg and thought they would be much safer if the British controlled the whole coast. Therefore they raised a force of farmers, fishermen, craftsmen and laborers

and set off for what is now Nova Scotia. They were joined by some British ships. After a siege of 49 days the great fortress surrendered, only to be returned to France under the Treaty of Aix-la-Chappelle in 1748. Then followed the establishment of Halifax (1749), the expulsion of the Acadians (1755) and the recapture and destruction of Louisburg (1758). At some time, whether before or after his marriage I don't know, Shubael moved from Barnstable to Chilmark." (Bonnie Hubbard)
