From "Drapers in America" by Thomas Waln Draper published 1892.

Samuel Draper moved from Boxboro, Mass., to Chesterfield, N. H., in 1803-the journey being performed in an ox-team. He spent the remainder of his life on the Hill Farm, on which he then settled. His wife, Sarah Crouch, attained to the great age recorded above. After using glasses for 50 years, her sight improved so that she discontinued their use, and at the age Of 93 she could read several chapters of her coarse print Bible at a time without glasses, and her faculty to read continued until she was 98. The Crouch family were of Welsh extraction, and a long lived race-one sister of Sarah's living until she was 92 years old. The descendants of Samuel were mainly farmers. The religious element predominated in this branch of the Draper family.
