REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERAN
Marched to the relief of Boston, and served as the Govenor's Foot Guards. He was one of an expedition that destroyed a type of Tory newspaper in New York City and it was later melted and made into bullets.
He and Lydia Atwater married on Oct 28, 1778, in New Haven, CT.
His grave is decorated with the emblems of the Sons of the Revolution. One of his granddaughters describes him as "a man whom everybody loved and respected and to whom people were wont to come for counsel and advice, a man of kind and pleasant disposition, with good common sense and ideas of his own.".
Another person says, "Hezekiah Augur was a sensible and thoroughly practical man, respected for his virtues and excellence of character, as well as for his mechanical genius and skill. He lived and died a worthy citizen and an exemplary member of the Congregational Church." .
