Aaron Powers.

Aaron Powers
was born in the state of Connecticut, February 1, 1782. He was a son of Nicholas and Phebe Powers. He left his native state, in 1805, and went to North Bend, Ohio, where he was married to Martha Colby. She was born in New Hampshire, April 3,1787. She came with her parents to North Bend, Ohio, in 1805. They moved into a stone house where they kept hotel, many distinguished men stopping with them, among them William H. Harrison who boarded with them for some time. Martha Colby’s mother was a Williams. Her brother, William Williams was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It is said of Aaron Powers that he attended school but very little. Certain it is that he acquired a considerable education. This he did by hard study, buying his own books. He was noted for his great memory and few excelled him as a grammarian in his day. Mr. Powers taught school at North Bend, Ohio, for five years. He taught his first term for ten dollars, but received fifteen dollars for each term thereafter. He entered one hundred and twenty-five acres of land in Butler county, Ohio, and moved there in 1811, where he resided until 1839, when he moved to Greenbush, Illinois. He bought a farm on section seventeen, of Abram Johnson, where he resided up to the time of his death. Mr. Powers was a Methodist preacher and preached his first sermon here about one week after his arrival. This meeting was held in a log schoolhouse a short distance from his residence, about ten persons gathering to hear him. About the time he was ready to begin service, Sammy Brown appeared. He came with his wife in a wagon from Oquawka, where he then resided. Mr. Brown had formerly lived in Ohio, where he was a member of the same conference with Mr. Powers. They were rejoiced to see each other.

"On July 1, 1727, Samuel Chandler, Jacob Wright and many others, soldiers or lawful representatives of such as were in the Narraganset Expedition of 1675, petitioned for land. They represented that in 1686, two townships were granted to them in the Nipmug county, which were not settled. They desired that a like grant might be renewed, which was done the following year, though not in the same location. Thomas Hunt and others, petitioned General Court, Feb. 17, 1731, that, as the preceding grant was insufficient for all the Narraganset claimaints, they may have some additional townships. The Legislature ordered that one township should be allowed for every 120 of such individuals. The House sent a message to the Council, Jan. 19, 1732, on this subject. It was as follows: 'Proclaimation was made to them, when mustered on Dedham Plain, whence they began their march' (Rev. Peter Hobart's diary gives the date of this marching from Dedham, Dec. 9, 1675), 'that if they played the man, took the fort, and drove the enemy out of the Narraganset country, which was their great seat, they should have a gratuity in land, besides their wages.' Such a victory was achieved. 'And as the condition has been performed, certainly the promise, in all equity and justice ought to be fulfilled. And if we consider the difficulties these brave men went through in storming the fort in the depth of winter, and the pinching wants they afterwards underwent in pursuing the Indians that escaped, through a hideous wilderness, formerly known throughout New England to this day, by the name of the hungry march, and if we further consider, that until this brave, though small army, thus played the man, the whole country was filled with distress and fear, and we trembled in this capital, Boston itself, and that to the goodness of God to this army, we owe our fathers and our own safety and estates'--they ought to have their claim."

[There follows a listing of the men who took part in this engagement and are therefore entitled to property.]

--New Eng. Hist. & Gen. Regis., 4/1862, p.143

"In the April No. of the Register, pp. 144-146, is given a list of the grantees of the Narraganset townships. The gentleman who furnished the list expresses his regret that it is not complete. Being in possession of a full list of the grantees of township No.2 (now Westminster and not Princeton as stated in that article), I will supply the defect as that town is concerned."
