23. SAMUEL5 (Isaac,4 Nathaniel,3 Samuel,2 Thomas1), b. July 29, 1753; m. Oct. 25, 1774, Sarah Weed of Stamford, Ct., b. Feb. 10, 1755, and d. March 17, 1845. He was a Revolutionary soldier and pensioner; settled in the town of Solon, in the spring of 1793. H. C. Goodwin, in his Pioneer Hist. of Cortland Co., 1859, pp. 207-8, says: "As we look over the dim vestiges of the past, and behold the hardy pioneer of civilization penetrating the boundary line which now marks the northern limits of Cortland Co., we feel that his was a hazardous effort, and that a great amount of energy must have been embraced in his wild, romantic character. The foot-prints of civilization had not then penetrated into this dense wilderness. True, the French traders had visited the Indians in their rude cabins, and even established trading posts, but these had disappeared with time and change. Yet through the deep, thick forest of hemlock, maple, elm and basswood, wandered the bold, resolute pioneer, Samuel Benedict, who, in the fall of 1793, located on lot 12. He erected a log citadel and christened it Home."

Notes for CAPTAIN BENJAMIN BENEDICT:

"Henry Marvin Benedict, The Genealogy of the Benedicts in America,  (Joel Munsell, 82 State Street, Albany, NY, 1870), page 73."

"Capt. Benedict removed to So. Salem before 1776, and finally settled at Patterson, near the close of the last century. Here he became a member of the Presb. church, and held the office of Deacon for many years. During the Revolutionary War he performed considerable service in the American army. He served at least one enlistment in the Continental army, in the campaign of 1777, on the northern frontier; but the most of his service was rendered in the county of his residence (Westchester). Living near what was then called the 'lines,' or 'neutral ground' between the British army in N. Y. city, and the American armies in the interior, they were constantly in danger from the raids of the British army, and the depredations of 'Cow-boys,' as they were called. He belonged to a company of organized militia, called 'minute-men,' who were obliged to be in readiness to march at a moment's notice, and in this capacity did much service. He was a member of the guard over Major Andre, during a portion of the time of his confinement, trial and execution." He was appointed Ensign, May 4, 1780; Lieut., June 24, 1786, and Captain, March 8, 1791. He d. Patterson, Oct. 17, 1832.

Military service: 04 May 1780, Appointed Ensign1017

Notes for ISAAC BENEDICT:

"Henry Marvin Benedict, The Genealogy of the Benedicts in America,  (Joel Munsell, 82 State Street, Albany, NY, 1870), page 74."

"Soon after his marriage he removed to New Canaan and settled upon a farm which he cultivated with his own hands for sixty years. For some time he was a soldier in the Revolutionary War (pensioner); held several public offices in the community; for fifty-nine years a member of the Cong. church, and an efficient Deacon in the same for thirty-six years. He possessed great meekness and gentleness of disposition. His deep interest in the welfare of his country, and in all that appertained to the prosperity of the cause of the Redeemer, led him to make willing contributions, both of his money and services, to the cause of Christian benevolence. The poor found in him a steadfast friend, and to the church he was both an ornament and pillar. Both his corporeal and mental powers remained unimpaired till almost the close of his honorable and useful life, and his end was peace. He d. May 17, 1840, in his 90th year, having reached exactly the age of both his father and grandfather. An appropriate discourse was delivered upon the occasion of his funeral, by his pastor, Rev. Theophilus Smith, from Gen. xxxv, 29. 'And Isaac gave up the ghost and died, and was gathered unto his people, being old and full of days.'"

Notes for DEACON GOULD BENEDICT:

"Henry Marvin Benedict, The Genealogy of the Benedicts in America,  (Joel Munsell, 82 State Street, Albany, NY, 1870), pages 74 and 75."

"In 1797 he started, with his older brother Isaac, on a tour of exploration and inquiry to central New York, then the "far west," and was so well pleased with Clinton, Oneida Co., that in the following spring he fixed upon that town as a place of settlement. He was a carpenter, and erected many of the best houses in the village of Clinton. In 1812 he removed to Lennox, and opened a public house in that part of the town known as Quality Hill. At the close of the war he returned to Clinton, and was employed for two years as college steward, keeping 'commons' in the building now used for the mineralogical cabinet. He made a profession of religion in 1820, and was chosen Deacon in 1844 (Cong. church). He was active and efficient in all matters which concerned the welfare of the church and the community. He was a diligent teacher in the sabbath-school, and liberal in his gifts to objects of philanthropy and benevolence. He was not a man of many words, but his testimony was never wanting on the side of virtue and religion. Deacon Benedict continued his habits of activity up to old age. He d. Aug. 7, 1868, aged 92 years, 6 months and 3 days. Mrs. Benedict, his 2d wife, was a valued and faithful member of the church. With a discreet and reliable judgment, and firmness and energy of purpose, she blended a conciliatory deportment, prudence, and practical wisdom. of great equanimity and uniformity of temper and disposition, she was eminently fitted to be useful. These qualities were sanctified and consecrated by divine grace. She died in the exercise of an humble faith, after a long and tedious illness."
