Abijah Tucker (1735) of Chesterfield Mass., Cornish New Hampshire, Pittsford Vermont

Abijah Tucker (1735) of Chesterfield Mass., Cornish New Hampshire, Pittsford Vermont

Surnames: Tucker, Lyon
Looking for actual death info on Abijah Tucker, b. 1735, Massachusetts. Married Lucy Lyon of Woodstock. Lived in Chesterfield, MA, Cornish NH and Pittsford VT, and perhaps New York and/or Canada. Looking for gravestone, death record (town, church, etc), probate record, deed record - any real evidence. Some people put 1792 Pittsford VT, but he was still alive in 1808, in Pittsford:
"At Freemen's meeting, held on the first Tuesday of Sep-
tember, 1808, the following persons were admitted as freemen
and sworn, viz : ..., Abijah Tucker,..." (from Hist of Pittsford VT, p.337)

His wife, Lucy (Lyon), born in Woodstock CT, died in Cornish NH in 1796.
I find no remarriage of Abijah, and my hunch is that he stayed with one or more of his grown children for the rest of his life. He was born in 1735 and was alive in 1808, aged 73 (by calculation), so he might not have lived much longer.

If anyone has access to probate and/or deed records for Pittsford, Rutland county, VT, that would be a worthwhile search.
