    Notes 
    • Excerpt from "McCall-Tidwell and Allied Families": Thomas removed to and lived in that part of Newbury, afterwards West Newbury, on the farm bought by his father for him and conveyed to him. Called Captain Thomas, was a captain of militia, and a Justice of the Peace under H.B.M's commission. He was buried in the burying ground on Newbury Plains near Artichoke River. In his will, dated June 4, 1744, he gives his wife, Anna, the use of one-half his dwelling house, one third of his real estate in Newbury, and pew in meeting house while she remains his widow; all his household goods and books; one-third of his "stock of creatures" and oe100 in "Bills of credit on the old town". He is names in Archives of State House of Massachusetts as "Captain Thomas Hale," one of the proprietors of township west of Merrimac River and northerly adjoining Contoocook for the soldiers who were in the expedition to Canada in 1690 under the command of Captain John March, Captain Stephen Greenleaf and Captain Philip Nelson. He ws a Selectman of Newbury, 1721, and on committee "to build Ash Street" in 1725. He ws a quiet, unpretending man of sterling worth, a sincere Christian and a man of more than ordinary intelligence. His name appears among the subscribers to the Reverend Dr. Chauncey's "Seasonable Thoughts on the State of Religion in New England", published in 1743--an elaborate discussion of the methods of Whitfield and others in the "Great Awakening" and an earnest protest against them. His home was on the southern slope of "Archelaus Hill", in what is new West Newbury."
