  • Notes 
    • The Benjamin Thurber Bible record (copied in typescript) from the DAR shows a Peter Thurber and a Dennison Thurber. Neither are children of Benjamin and Esther. Dennison is the great-grandson of Benjamin Thurber, and I don't know who Peter belongs to.
      Benjamin Thurber was living in Williamstown, Berkshire Co., Massachusetts (next to his son, Joseph), found there in the 1810, 1820, and 1830 census.
      Some information from the History of Rensselaer County, by Nathaniel B. Sylvester, states that a Benjamin Thurber established a store in Troy, New York. From land records for Benjamin Thurber, of Providence, Rhode Island, I have discovered that it was a different Benjamin (not my direct line) who established this store. March 2003.
