  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: Email from Earl Wm. ("Bill") Kennedy (undisclosed at example dot net) to Weldon Whipple, 30 Apr 2005. Cites the "Prentiss Glazier typescript on the Chamberlain family, seemingly well researched (based on the Chamberlain Family Association Reports of 1908-1910), done ca. 1954" Bill writes:
      Josiah served in the Revolutionary War; born Roxbury, MA; he enlisted 1781, 1782; residence was New Marlborough, MA; his wife was sister of Ebenezer Cheney; he was a carpenter when he enlisted; died Marlboro, Vermont 1819. Most of this is in various records concerning the Revolutionary War veterans (and pensions). When he married in 1777, he was living in Petersham, MA. (By the way, every published source I've seen about the Cheney family gives her the incorrect parentage.)
      Bill also cites "Josiah Chamberlain deeds - New Marlborough, MA":

      • 1777 (1779) - Josiah, of Petersham, housewright, sells the w. end of lot # 179 (in 3rd Division) , c. 15 acres
      • 1780 (1781) - Josiah, of NM, housewright, sells n.e. part of lot # 179 (in 3rd Division), 30 acres
      • 1781 (1787) - Josiah of NM, housewright, sells 2 tracts of land in NM, 24 acres, - one whole lot of 60 acres (=#177) and part of a lot - 14 acres (of lot #179).
      • 1783 - Josiah of NM sells e. end of lot #12 (in 3rd Division), ca. 18 acres (had earlier deed sawmill land to another).
