Not only was he a colonel in the N.H. militia, he served in the legislature along side William after William left the Continental Congress. He was named collector of customs at Portsmouth by President Geo. Washington and later by President Thomas Jefferson who he named a town after. ... Like his two brothers did not have any children. He lived into his 80s and was a major influence in the state until his dying day." --B. Whipple
