Notes for William Carpenter III


William Carpenter was a Farmer and a Collector of the town of Norton for a sum agreed upon by the town to raise men for the military service in 1779. "It appears from the records that he left a handsome property to his last wife consisting of real estate, mills, etc. She is a part owner of a steam water and water power and is molested in her rights by Noah Dean and Hezekiah Briggs for which they were put under bonds of $100 not to molest her rights of using one half of the water on the easterly end of the dam now erected for running a cutting mill."109,110
