Death: 1784

This is an UNDOCUMENTED burial as no tombstone has been found. His grave may have been marked with a field stone.

He was the son of Col. John and Abigail (Fitch) Dyer, born in the part of New London county, which became Windham in 1726. His 2nd great grandfather, on his mothers side, was William Bradford, Mayflower passenger.

He married, 29 Mar 1753, in Windham County to Anna Payson.
Here they began their family as Marys' birth is recorded in the church at Canterbury.

The HISTORY OF WOODSTOCK says he recieved bounty (Land warrents)to serve three years in the Continental Army. He enlisted 1 May 1775. Anna and the children must have returned to Canterbury during this time, as she died there in 1776. Three of their sons, James, Thomas and Moses, also recieved bounty for service.

John served 3 months and 8 days. Was he sick or wonunded?
When he died, Rowland Clark, Administrator made a trip to Worcester for soldiers note and another to Boston for soldiers note of final settlement. Both of these were added to the inventory of his estate.

He was the father of twelve children; Mary, James, Thomas, Elisha, Moses, Betsey, Ruth, Susanna, John, Tamer, Lucy and John.
