Luther Fairbanks resided in Lancaster, Northfield, and Swanzey, NH until about 1782 when he moved to Barnard, Vermont. He later resided in Pittsfield, VT.

He was a farmer and a blacksmith by trade. While residing in Northfield, MA, he responded to the Lexington alarm, and participated as a seargant in the siege of Boston that ensued.

He died in Barnard, at the house of his son Calvin, Dec 8, 1836, of typhoid fever, age 81 years. Luther's son, Calvin also took the disease, and died the same day.

In September 1775, he had permission to volunteer as sergeant under Capt. Jonas Hubbard, to join the expedition under Col. Benedict Arnold against Quebec, which sailed for Kennebec river to march through the untrodden wilderness of Maine during the inclement weather of the months of November and December. He participated, Dec. 31, 1775, in the unsuccessful assault on Quebec, under Gen. Montgomery, and while in the act of scaling the fortification, he was taken prisoner, confined in jail until September 1776, when he was transported by water to New York City, where he was paroled and soon exchanged.

He was in the severe battles at Stillwater, September 19 and October 7, 1777, which preceded the surrender, Oct. 19, 1777, of the army under Gen. Burgoyne, after which he accompanied that portion of the army that was ordered to Chesnut Hill, probably near Philadelphia, but on his regiment arriving at Albany, N. Y., he was detached to be appointed Wagon Conductor General in the Quartermaster's Department, to the Brigade commanded by Gen. Patterson of Massachusetts, in which duty he continued, after passing the winter of 1777-8 in the historic camp at Valley Forge, until July 1778, when he was discharged by order of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, Quarter Master General. He applied for a pension in Apr. 1818, and was ranked as Captain, according to the amount of pension claimed and allowed.

The above information is from the Commissioner of Pensions, Washington, D. C., Jan. 10, 1894. His report also embodies the additional facts found stated in the War Rolls, in the Appendix.
