    Notes 
    • From Cochrane p. 344

      But little is known of the ancestry of the Austins of this town. The father of Nathan, named below, was killed by the Indians, but the time and place cannot be ascertained. The father and son were fording a river, both on one horse, when the savages fired upon them. The father was killed and fell into the river, but the boy and the horse escaped unhurt. This boy was taken to Pelham, and there he was brought up, and there he married; and his posterity are very numerous and respectable.

      NATHAN AUSTIN came here from Pelham, and began the Danforth farm, west of the Gould place, in 1780. His wife was Phebe Barker, half-sister to Capt. Peter Barker. Brought with him a large family. Moved to Rochester Vt., in 1800, and died there very aged in 1840.


      From Trapper Byrne:

      Nathan 4 joined up with the Northern Continental Army at Saratoga,
      N.Y., in 1777. He started something called the Danforth Farm in Antrim,
      N.H., in 1780 [5]
