  • Notes 
    • From Puritan to Yankee: Character and the Social Order of Connecticut 1690-1765 by Richard Bushman (Center for the Study of the History of Liberty in America) - Here is a serious, but entertaining analysis of the currents of thought and action moving in Connecticut from 1690 to 1765 including the information and discussion of the dissenters, "New Lights," and resulting changes. On pg 162, Bushman mentions that Jonathan Parsons, Congregational minister of Lyme, Connecticut renounced the Saybrook Platform. Elisha Mack's Enthusiasm for Liberty Elisha Mack, another of Solomon's cousins, moved from Lyme, Connecticut to Marlow, N. H. to Gilsum near Marlow. He was an impetuous and enterprising young man. Following his family's footsteps, he was active in the cause of liberty. Read about his attempt to eliminate Tories in Keene, N. H. Elisha Mack's Inventiveness Elisha Mack is credited with building several early bridges and dams, including a Gilsum bridge and the first bridge to span the Connecticut at Bellows Falls, Vermont. Elisha eventually moved down the Connecticut River to Montague, Massachusetts. Hayward's History of Gilsum, N. H. explains that he had invented a leather diving suit which allowed him to work in the water dry. Perhaps this is really a holdover from working on ships afloat. Read about Elisha's adventures in Montague. Marlow Men Play Major Roles - Solomon Mack, Our First Settler - Solomon Mack, cousin of The Reverend Ebenezer Mack, was the first citizen of Lyme, Connecticut to settle in Marlow. He was here before the Marlow Charter of 1761. He played a role in the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. We find him learning to make salt peter (presumably for gun powder) just before the Revolution and being called from town to town to teach others. We find him taking his sons to sea as privateers. His grave is in Gilsum, N.H. There is much else about him to discover. For instance, his daughter Lucy married Joseph Smith, Sr. and became the mother os Joseph Smith, Jr., the Mormon founder. Mack Family submitted by Chester Mack, Jr., Huron County First Famiy Member #4; Ohio Genealogical Society First Family Member #1266 Daniel Mack, son of Captain Elisha Mack of Revolutionary War fame, and Diadema Rathbone, a double Mayflower descendant, was born in either Westmoreland, NH, or Deerfield, MA, on 17 December 1784. His direct paternal ancestor was John Mack who immigrated from Scotland ca. 1665 and settled in Salisbury, MA. His maternal Mayflower ancestors were Stephen Hopkins and Thomas Rogers. ---------------------- Families Related to the Bagley and Floyd Families by Martha (Bagley) Anderson and Norton R Bagley, Plymouth, New Hampshire 1990 microfilm 929.273 B 14 72m- Elisha was a soldier at Bennington 1777 as Captain. He and his brother, Solomon, built the first saw mill and grist mill in Marlow where he purchased property in 1772 as one of the "purchase proprietors"; led the raid at Keene against the Tories; built first bridge across Ashuelot River; built the first cantilever Bridge at Turners Falls, MA, 1793 Moved to Gilsum, New Hampshire and built mills there. His son Elisha, Jr., was a Revolutionary War soldier; and married Tubbs.
