INDEX

In 1649 and 1650, grants of land were made to Dedham, MA settlers wishing to establish a new settlement in the Boggestowe area at East Holliston, MA. Medfield, MA, was incorpoted in 1650 on these lands. In 1659 another grant of land, called the "New Grant" was made to Medfield settlers, in an area now largely occupied by Medway, MA.

Henry Garnsey, of Roxbury, was the first settler in the New Grant. In 1700, the same year that he married Sarah Wheelock, he owned Lot No. 8, which laid on both sides of Chicken Brook, with its east bound at the present Cottage Street. His dwelling stood near the original junction of Village and Cottage Streets. The site of his house is marked by a partial foundation and celler hole, just south of the former railroad grade, preserved by the Medway Historical Commission.

In 1717 he was a Selectman of Medway.

Guernsey Street, unfortunately misnamed, commemorates Henry Garnsey.

Henry's wife Sarah died in 1716, and Hannah, Henry's second wife died in 1721.

His tombstone, in the Old Burying Ground, West Medway, reads as follows: "Here lies ye Body of Henry Gurnsey Deceased, July ye 3rd 1759 Aged 80 years."

INDEX

Samuel and his brother Alvan appear to have lived in Brookfield, MA for a time. Alvan's marriage in 1786 is on record there, and both Samuel and Alvan are enumerated there in the 1790 census. Both Carlyle Capron Wheelock and Marcus Warren Waite indicate that Samuel's twin sons Luther and Bradshaw were born in Brookfield.

Residence in Brookfield would explain why Samuel's Revolutionary War service record shows that he enlisted from Charlton, MA, which is adjacent to Brookfield. There were no Samuels amongst the Charlton Wheelocks to otherwise account for the record. He fought as a private, engaged for the town of Charlton. He enlisted in 1779, serving in Col. Nathan Tyler's regiment, and again in 1780, serving in Colonel Davis's regiment.

Samuel Wheelock and family moved to Herkimer Co., NY, before 1800. His brother, Alvan, is on record as having moved to New York in 1791. Samuel later moved to Onondaga Co., where he spent his last days.

Five children are listed living with Samuel and Susannah in the 1800 and 1810 census.
