***Additional History.......From the Connecticut Guide, 1935......Located on the web site of Carol Hanny.

***Melvin Wright was researching in TN and found the following: Maury County, Tennessee Deed Book B, page 135 "Samuel Lee, Esq. of Salisbury, Litchfield County, Conn. P. of A. to Lyman D. Brewster, formerly of Salisbury, but now residing in Franklin, Williamson Co., Tenn. to take care of land in Williamson and Maury on waters of Rutherford and Cathey's Creek of Duck River, known as eastern survey in Polk's Grant, containing about 4421 acres. Also to receive from David Frierson and Francis Hall such sums of money and papers as each or either may have, belonging to me, also commence suits against them for collection of money and papers. Empower attorney, in case of his declining, to appoint some good person to perform acts mentioned. Hereby revoke and annul P. of A. granted to Francis Hall, dated at Poughkeepsie, June 27, 1816. Witness: Samuel Lee, 2nd., Stephen Scofield. Signed: Samuel Lee. Reg. Poughkeepsie, N.Y. 21 Sep. 1816 by Samuel Lee."

***Bob Manion has created a file of a civil war infantry company consisting of all Salisbury residents, Roster of Company E, 28th Connecticut Regiment, Volunteer Infantry.
