Surnames: LOVEWELL TAPLIN LYMAN LOVELAND
I am researching the family of ZACHEUS LOVEWELL & HEPZEBAH TAPLIN and am trying to gather all that I can on the children of HEPZEBAH and 2nd wife IRENE LYMAN. Would appreciate anything you have gathered.

Here are SOME items I have found:

Brigham, Emma Elisabeth,
The history of the Brigham family.
Rutland, Vt.: The Tuttle Co., 1927, 323 pgs.

Fifth Generation

BRIGHAM,

72. HEPSIBAH 5 (BRIGHAM) TAPLIN (1732-1815).
was the dau. of LIEUT. NATHAN 4 and HEPSIBAH (not ELIZABETH) (WARD) BRIGHAM, and the wife of COL. JOHN (1726-1803). COL. TAPLIN is said by one of their descendants, DR. C. W. DREW of Minneapolis, to have served only in the French and Indian War in 1766 and 1756, and did not serve i the Revolutionary war, but like many others went to Canada. This is in direct contradiction of the H. B. F. story. Five of his sons served at various tims in that war. The record in H. B. F. that HEPSIBAH's children were born in Corinth is incorrect. They resided in or about Marlboro until 1764, when they went to Newbury, Vt., and to Corinth about 1780. Some of the items given below are from "Thirty Dunstable Families," by EZRA STEARNS, with notes from S. HARRISON LOVEWELL of Arlington, Mass.

CH. (TAPLIN): (Note: have no idea what happened to numbers 2,3,6)

vii. NATHAN was a soldier in the War of 1812. In the S.V.R. a m. 28 Oct., 1776, is recorded of NATHAN TAPLIN and ELIZABETH TAYLOR. She was probably the dau. of EZRA and ABIGAIL (TROWBRIDGE) TAYLOR of Southboro, b. 12 June, 1752.

====================================
NOTE: My research is basically trying to determine if WILLIAM LOVEWELL son of ZACHEUS & HEPZEBAH (TAPLIN) LOVEWELL emigrated to Stanstead County where he m. MARY HANSON. WILLIAM's uncle (& HEPZEBAH's brother) JOHNSON TAPLIN was AN early settler of Stanstead county, Quebec) and I have discovered that the younger (half) brother of WILLIAM - NEHEMIAH TAPLIN was born in Lower Canada as far as 3 census records show. See below:

NEHEMIAH, born February 1, 1803, married July 20, 1826, SARAH C. HUBBARD, married, second, August 19, 1845, PHEBE (COLE) HILL.
