6. FREDERICK4 SEXTON [or SAXTON] (James3-2 George1) was born at Sheffield, Massachusetts, May 22, 1748. He married Rhoda Messenger, born Feb. 27, 1750, daughter of Nehemiah Messenger. Before the American Revolution he settled in what is now Chittenden County, Vermont, but after Montgomery's defeat at Quebec in 1775-6, the settlement was abandoned. (d) Frederick Saxton had already returned to Sheffield, from which town he served in various enlistments as a sergeant. (b) By 1783 he had returned to Vermont and had settled at Burlington, where he was known as Colonel Saxton. (e) In 1787, 1788, and 1789 he was elected selectman and in 1790 he was on the committee to divide the town into school districts. The first jury trial in Chittenden County, John Collins vs. Frederick Saxton, was decided against him. (f) In 1790 he removed to Shelburne, Vermont. On April 28, 1796, Colonel Saxton with three others, started across Lake Champlain in a log canoe. It is said that he was taking a load of grain to mill. When about a mile from shore the canoe sank and the bodies were never recovered.(g) His widow Rhoda died March 5, 1813.

(j) The data marked (j), published Dec. 11, 1929, in the Saint Johnsville, New York, Enterprise and News, and contributed by Mrs. John H. Waggoner, Buffalo, N. Y., were brought to the attention of the compiler after this number of the Record had gone to press, and as they furnish the death dates of Alanson and Susannah (Doty) Saxton, and more complete information as to the names of their children and dates of their birth, we gladly give them subject to future verification.

JAMES5 SAXTON (James4-3-2 George1) was born, November 26, 1758, at Sheffield, Massachusetts. He married Huldah -----, June 12, 1780.

By 1806 they were living at Butternuts [now Gilbertsville], Otsego County, New York,

Dodson. Mary, daughter of John Dodson, born Aug. 1, 1779, married ----- Cassidy. Elizabeth, another daughter of John Dodson, born Oct. 8, 1786, married Henry Bridenthal. A history of Freedom Township, [now in Blair Co.,] Pa. says that the Dodson family settled there in 1800. The above Henry Bridenthal lived in Blair Co., but nothing is known of the Cassidy family. Mary Dodson may have married Cassidy before the Dodson family moved to Freedom Township. Has anyone records of this Dodson family? Can anyone furnish information regarding the Cassidy family into which Mary Dodson married?
