Birth: May 20, 1732

Death: Jul. 3, 1806
Windham County

Moses Benson marched on the Lexington Alarm from Douglas, Massachusetts and then served as a corporal in Capt. Edward Seagraves's company of Col. Joseph Read's regiment from 15 May until end of December 1775. [Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors in the War of the Revolution, (Boston: 1896), Vol. I, pp. 972-973.]

On 19 June 1782, Moses Benson and his son Daniel Benson were two of the men who petitioned the Vermont legislature for the land known as Hitchcock's Gore which later became the town of Brookline in 1794.

Moses was recorded in the 1800 census at Brookline as a male over age 45, with a female over age 45 (believed to be his wife Eunice), female 16 to 26 (believed to be his daughter Eunice), and male under ten (believed to be Eunice's son).

Family Bible records were published in the Boston Transcript on 23 Nov 1934 (#2698) which provide the birth of his children.

Biographical sketches on Moses Benson and his Benson ancestors are available in Richard H. Benson, The Benson Family of Colonial Massachusetts, (Boston: Newbury Street Press, 2003), pp. 277-281, 143-147, 72-76, 28-31, 7-22.
