"Mr. Hyde was born in Sturbridge and was the son of Benjamin Hyde, who had a large family. We shall name his sons who were in the Revolutionary War. he was in the service during the most critical period of the Revolutionary contest. He was one of the corps commanded by Gen. Sullivan ...."
"The hardships, incident to this period of Mr. Hyde's life, without a doubt, gave him more vigor of character and firmness of physical constitution, and better prepared him for the active services of a long life. Not favored with the advantages of even a common education, he cheerfully bestowed them upon his children, and as cheerfully aided in the education of the rising generation, and also in the support of religious worship. His attendance at church on the Sabbath, was uniform. He expressed to the writer his firm belief in the necessity of religion. He was plain in his manners, economical in his habits, and judicious in his calculations. He read very little; but a good share of common sense, and keen observation, enabled him to judge, with a good degree of accuracy, of public men and measures.

He left for his widow and children a very handsome estate, which was the fruit of his own industry and perserverance.He died Sept. 8th 1838, aged 77.

Benjamin D. Hyde, Esq. who has for many years been in the practice of law, is a son of Joshua Hyde."
