bullet  General Notes:

Moses Axtell, a native of Boston, was a son of Daniel Axtell, who came from Wales with a brother, Aaron. Moses enlisted as a minute man at the opening of the Revolution. He also belonged to a company disguised as Indians, and helped throw the tea overboard in Boston harbor. He was at Lexington and heard the handsome British officer cry out, "Disperse, ye rebels!" answered by shots from all sides. He was in the battle of Bunker Hill, where the "rebels," under Putnam, sheltered by a fence, beat down the British in heaps, but were finally compelled to retreat. Mr. Axtell was a blacksmith and armorer in the Revolutionary army. After the close of the war he lost his wife and removed to New Britain, where he married Bershabe Peck. He moved to Schoharie, and from thence to Unadilla, with the Johnstons and Sliters, where he remained till 1803, when he settled at Barbourville.
It is related that he shed tears because he could not vote, under the John Adams law. He had six sons-Moses, David, Joseph, John, George and Rufus; and five daughters. Tamar married Nathaniel Cook, Abigail married Nicholas Sliter, Sally Pamilia married Henry Hess, and Ann is married to Daniel Wood. These all (except Rufus and Sally, who died of dropsy) raised large families in the town. Moses Axtell died before the war of 1812. His eldest son, Moses, is still living, over eighty years old, on the old homestead.
Moses would be Delos's Grandfather
