Per a book written by Eunice Miena Barber:

First son & fifth child of Moses Chamberlin & his wife Jemima Wright born 12/19/1747, or about one year before his father received a deed of land in Litchfield Co., Conn.; was in Newbury, Vt., as early as 1772, for on November 20 of that year he received, from Jacob Bayley, a deed of Lot No. 2 in Sleepers Meadow, with the house lot belonging to it, one 50 acre & two 100 acre lots. He first built a log house & later a hotel & store, which he run for many years. His farm, which is north of Bedel's bridge, remained in the family for three generations & was long since known as the Chamberlain farm.

During the Revolutionary War, he was a private in Col. Peter Olcott's Reg. of Capt. John G. Bayley's Co., from April, 1777, to March 6, 1779, serving 1 month, 19 days; was in Capt. Simeon Steven's Co., for guarding & scouting, from May, 1779, to May, 1781; & was 2d Lieut. in Capt Frye Bayley's Co., for guarding & scouting, from May, 1781, until end of war; was made 1st Lieutenant by Governor Chittenden (the original commission is owned by a descendant) & successively Capt., Major & Colonel in the militia.

He married Elizabeth (Elliott) Johnson, daughter of Edmund & Mehitable (Worthen) Elliott of Chester, N. H., and widow of Haynes Johnson, born in 1751 & died 2/8/1829.

Remembrance Chamberlain praised people for what they did even if the thing was done wrong. He was a hard worker, but he & his wife were very particular to keep the Sabbath. They were, probably, members of the church, joining it before the present records began as they brought up their family in strict Puritan principles.
