    Notes 
    • BIRTH: Other records show 12 May 1748.

      BIOGRAPHY: Cliff Hard thinks Elisha and some of his sons went to Canada during the Revolutionary War as they were Loyalist. Elisha
      stayed in Canada for 8 yrs and returned to Bennington in 1784 or thereabouts.
      After Elisha died Lucy Hard moved to Haverhill Ohio with children and with a family named Canfield. I think later Lucy Hard married Ebenezer Canfield as he is buried next to her.
