CHANGES IN POPULATION.

In the course of a few years after the first settlements were made in town, some of the original owners of lots sold their property to new-comers and removed to the northern and western sections of this state and Vermont. About the beginning of the present century, a considerable number of families moved to the state of Maine and New York. Between the years 1825 and 1840, a large number of families and many young men and women settled in various western states. The farms and residences they left behind were in many cases sold to parties coming from other localities. These changes in the population have continued until, at this time, a few only of the inhabitants are descendents from the people who lived in the town ninety years ago.

On High Street there are not over eight persons who live upon lands which were owned and occupied by their ancestors previous to the year 1800. The following are their names: Isaac Fitts, a grandson of Daniel Fitts, Esq., and a great grandson of Lieutenant Abraham Fitts, the first by the name of Fitts who came to Candia ; a daughter of John S. Patten, who is descended from Master Moses Fitts; Samuel Morrill, 3d, who owns a part of the farm upon which his grandfather, Samuel Morrill, Esq., resided ; Mrs. Lucinda Eaton, wife of George Eben Eaton, who lives on the homestead once owned by her grandfather, Theophilus Clough, 2d, and first owned by her greatuncle, Theophilus Clough, sr., who was the first owner; Andrew J. Robie, son of Asa Robie and great-grandson of Ichabod Robie, the tirst settler on the place ; Andrew J. Fifield, a grandson of John C. Fifield and great-grandson of Stephen Fifield, one of the first inhabitants in town; J. Lane Fitts, a grandson of Reuben Fitts and a great-grandson of Jethro Hill; George W. Brown, a grandson of Aaron Brown, sr.; Elias P. and Joseph Hubbard, sons of Joseph Hubbard, sr., and grandsons of Benjamin Hubbard, one of the first settlers.

On the North Road there are only five persons who reside on the farms of their ancestors of less than a hundred years ago, and these are Dana Hall, a grandson of Benjamin Hall; Addison Smith, a grandson of J. Chase Smith; William B.

Thorn, a grandson of Nathan Thorn; John G. Martin, grandson of Moses Martin ; Lorenzo Hoit, grandson of Col. Thomas Wilson.

On the New Boston road a great-grandson of Benjamin Lang is the only person who lives on the homestead of his ancestors.

Moses F. Emerson resides on the place on the Chester road which was first occupied by his grandfather, Moses Emerson, a soldier of the Revolution. Mrs. Thomas Colby lives on the place which was first owned by her grandfather, Israel Dolber, sr.

At the Village, Bradley Beane and Bradley B. Beane live on the place which was owned and occupied by Joseph Beane more than one hundred and forty years ago. Mrs. Mary S., widow of the late D. C. Moore, is now the owner of the home on the South road upon which her grandfather, Col. H. T. Eaton, and great-grandfather, Paul Eaton, resided. Ellen S. Eaton, daughter of Henry M. Eaton, is now the owner of the place upon which her great-grandfather settled in 1773. Dea. Edmund Hill lives on the place owned by his grandfather, Dea. John Hill, more than 130 years ago.

On the Patten road, Mrs. John S. Nutting, lives on homestead settled by her great-grandfather, Thomas Patten, over a hundred and forty years ago. There are no other descendents of the early inhabitants living on the road.

J. Osgood Wason resides on a place situated on the Jersey road which was owned by his father, John Wason, and grandfather, Robert Wason.

George F. Patten lives on the old homestead on Clark's hill which has been in the possession of his family for four generations, his great-grandfather, Robert Patten, being the first owner.
