"Benjamin Hyde, the father of Joshua Hyde, bore arms in the French war, and also in the war of the Revolution. We should be glad to state his services more in detail, had we the desired information. His sons, John and Othniel, were in the service about eight months. Of Joshua we have spoken particularly. here is another instance of the father and three sons taking the field together in the struggle for independence. It is a manifestation of a patriotic spirit, of a high order. Benjamin Hyde senior had twelve children, and, as we are informed, most of them lived to advanced life."
