Ebenezer and Sarah Hart



Ebenezer Hart, is supposed to have been born in Lynn, or Saugus, Mass., about 1738, son of Samuel and Hepsibar (Eaton) Hart; married Sarah Pool at Lunenburg, Massachusetts, by Rev. David Stearns, on May 4, 1758.  Sarah Pool, the daughter of Samuel Pool of Lunenburg, Massachusetts, was born on April 15, 1740 in Lunenburg.


Samuel Poole, Sarah's father, was born about 1715 in Massachusetts.  He married Prudence Townsend on March 13, 1738 in Lynn, Essex County, Massachusetts.  Prudence Townsend was born about 1720 in Massachusetts.  Samuel died on March 5, 1782 in Shelburne, Massachusetts.  Samuel and Prudence Pool had only one child, Sarah. 

The following deed transfers 70 acres of land from Samuel Pool to Ebenezer Hart:

The Deerfield history says Ebenezer Hart and wife came to Deerfield, Mass., in 1762, where he was a farmer.  Mr. Hart was a private soldier in the Revolution, from Lunenburg, Capt. Sylvanus Smith’s company, Col. Timothy Bigelow’s Fifteenth regiment, from February 27, 1777, to February 27, 1780.


After Ebenezer's death, Sarah Pool married Stephen Kellogg on September 3, 1778 in Massachusetts.  Mary died in January 1824 in Perrysburgh, Cattaraugus County, New York.

Rebecca Hart and Oliver Bates had ten children: Oliver Bates, Asa Bates, Polly Bates, Cyrus Bates, Blias Bates, Elias Bates, Hart(1) Bates, Hart(2) Bates, Laura Bates, and Fanny Bates.  Their son, CYRUS BATES, was born 1792 in Halifax, Vermont. Also born in Halifax, in 1795, was Lydia Harrington, daughter of Daniel and Sarah (Carpenter) Harrington. In 1813, Cyrus Bates married Lydia Harrington, not in Halifax, but in Henderson, New York. How Cyrus got to Henderson is not known, but at least his father accompanied or followed him as Oliver Bates died in Henderson in 1828. Whether Cyrus' mother, Rebecca (Hart) Bates, accompanied Oliver is unknown. How Lydia Harrington came to be in Henderson is not known, either. Her father apparently died in Halifax, Vermont, but the date is not known. Perhaps her widowed mother moved to Henderson about the same time as the Bates family.
