0040. Moses Meader (c.1752 - p.1840)
Moses Meader, son of Moses Wyer Meader (1717-p.1749) [0014] and Martha Canney (b.1718), was probably born in New Durham, NH a little after 1750. In July 9, 1777 he married Jane Otis of Barrington, NH. The Reverend Jeremy Belknap, D.D. performed the ceremony. He moved from New Durham to Alton, Belknap, NH and died there. He was a very profligate young man and once cursed his father to his face. A neighbor told him that the curse of God would follow him throughout his life, and this proved literally true. He had a large family, but he lived and died a wretched, miserable man. His sons were farmers.
He was in Captain Winborn Adams' Company, Colonel Poor's Eleventh Continental Foot, on June 2, 1775 at that time a Durham husbandman 23 years old. [History of Durham, I, 124.]
