In 1777, he was in Capt. Nicholas Rollins Company which took part in the
battles at Stillwater and Saratoga and was present at the surrender of
Burgoyne. By the will of his father, he received one-half of the farm. The
division was made by a board of referees who divided the farm and assigned
the northern half to William and the southern half to his brother James. At
the end of the year,James appeared before the board and felt that the half
assigned to him did not represent one-half of the farm and offered $500.00 to
william if he would exchange halves. William was very reluctant to exchange
but took the southern half and later regretted it. In 1810 he sold out and
moved to New York. William and Sarah had 5 children born in New Hampshire.
