Note: Moses Staples, 93, son of Samuel and Mercy (Caine) Staples, was born at Deer Isle, Maine, died at Swan's Island and was buried at ‘Rose Hill' Cemetery. Moses married Judith Eaton in about 1775 at Deer Isle. Moses and Judith had thirteen children. He served in the American Revolution - Massachusetts, Col. Wiggleworth's Regiment: his rank: Private. His occupation in civilian life: He was a ship's carpenter. Moses Staples was born on 29 September 1753 in Deer Isle, Hancock County, Maine, USA. Came to Swan's Island in 1793. Also was at Philipstown, Maine. He was a Ship's Carpenter. He died on 19 Aug 1846 in Swan's Island, Hancock County, Maine, USA. He was buried in Rose Hill cemetery, Atlantic. Came to Deer Isle with parents in 1764. Moved to Swan's Island in 1793 and was the second permanant settler. Lived on York Island near Isle au Haut in 1785. Built Boats at the location that became Henry D. Joyce's shop, and later was the Swan's Island Ferry landing. Moses Staples and Judith Eaton were married before 1793 in Deer Isle, Hancock County, Maine. After Mr. Staples' marriage he went from Deer Isle to live in Sedgwick, where he remained about a year. While there their first child was born. He came back to Deer Isle. Seven children were born to them there, and after coming back to Swan's Island the remaining five were born. Mr. Staples was an active, intelligent man, who always took a great interest in the transaction of town business, and was ever foremost for public improvement. In 1844, some two years previous to his death, he very thoughtfully had a sworn statement drawn by Joshua Trask, esq., of the dates when many of the earliest settlers came, and the lots of land taken up by them. This was prompted, no doubt, by the fact that no public records had been made. This document has been a great help in making a record of his family. He accumulated considerable property which he disposed of before his death.
