of Salisbury, Massachusetts
Fifth Generation


SAMUEL5 MAXFIELD (Samuel4, Michael3, John2-1) was born at Gilmanton, Strafford County, New Hampshire, on 3 October 1793[1] a son of Samuel Maxfield and his wife Abigail Gilman. He died at Gilmanton on 29 October 1860.[2] He married at Upper Gilmanton Parish (later Belmont), Gilmanton on 4 January 1816 BETSEY HUNTOON.[3] She was born at Gilmanton on 8 August 1792, a daughter of Joshua Huntoon and Mary C. Winslow. She died on 5 December 1844.[4]

Samuel and Betsey Maxfield lived and farmed in Gilmanton all their lives, in the Upper Gilmanton Parish, which was later incorporated as Belmont. The 1830 and 1840 censuses reported the family there, with the numbers in various age and sex categories, which could be explained as follows:[5]

1830
male 30-39 Samuel, 36
female 30-39 Betsey, 37
male 10-14 Daniel, 14
male 10-14 Arthur, 11
male 5-9 Samuel
female 5-9 Susan, 9
female 0-4 Elizabeth, 3
1840

female 40-49 Betsey, 47
male 20-29 Daniel, 24
male 20-29 Arthur, 21
male 15-19 Samuel
female 15-19 Susan, 19
female 10-14 Elizabeth, 13
female 5-9 Mary Ann, 8

Betsey (Huntoon) Maxfield died on 5 December 1844 and is buried at South Road Cemetery, Belmont.[6] Daniel had married about 1839/40, Susan married in 1841, Arthur married in 1845, Elizabeth married in 1848. The 1850 census found widower Samuel Maxfield living with son Daniel and his family at Gilmanton, and daughter Mary Ann with her brother Arthur and family at Chicopee, Hampden County, Massachusetts. Susan and her husband, Andrew Moody, lived at Lowell, Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Elizabeth and her husband Franklin Skinner may have already moved to Milledgeville, Baldwin County, Georgia, where they were reported in the 1860 census. With the exception of Daniel, who was farming at Gilmanton, all of the other sons and sons-in-law had moved to mill towns and were working in textile mills.

The 1860 census (1 June) again reported Samuel Maxfield with his son at Gilmanton. Samuel died there on 20 October 1860 and is buried at South Road Cemetery, Belmont.[7]
