"Deacon Ebenezer Hamlin, who succeeded to his grandfather's property and his

original member of the first church, but in 1742 removed to Sharon, Connecticut,
was a merchant, and kept a house of entertainment for travelers at Sharon
Mountain; he was a first lieutenant in the 3d Company of Sharon, and later was a
private in Colonial forces in the War of the American Revolution; he married
(first) Lucy Foster, and they had twelve children. The ninth of these, Asa
Hamlin, born March 30, 1780, in Sharon, Connecticut, died September 8, 1835, in
Smethport, Pennsylvania, received a sound education, studied medicine, and
practiced his profession at Sharon with considerable success until about 1814,
when he removed to Fairfield, New York, going in 1816 to Salem, Pennsylvania,
and in 1833 to Smethport, where he died September 8, 1835."
