Notes for Doritha Hitchcock
She was instrumental in founding the first church and school in Homer, Cortland Co., New York.

Buried in Lot 3, Section 10, of the Glenwood Cemetery. The inscription on her gravestone adjacent to that of her husband is:
"D. H.
1752.1813."135
Military Notes for Samuel (Spouse 1)
"HOAR, SAMUEL, Monson. Private, Capt. Reuben Munn's (Monson) co., which marched April 21, 1775, in response to the alarm of April 19, 1775, to Cambridge; left Cambridge April 25, 1775; service, 8 days."134

Probably the following:
"HOAR, SAMUEL. Lieutenant; receipt given to Capt. Asahel Wheeler, dated Ticonderoga, signed by said Hoar and Lieut. Samuel Osborn, for wages from Sept. 30, 1776, to Nov. 1, 1776."134
Misc. Notes
Listed as a member of the First Congregational Church of Monson with his wife.129, 130

Samuel was a town officer of Monson during the Revolutionary War, which is also one of the criteria for eligibility in the D.A.R. He was listed as a fence viewer at the town meeting of 15 March 1774. Later called Lt. Samuel Hoar in the 19 March 1782 town meeting, as a highway surveyor and collector.

Samuel Hoar moved to Homer, New York, in January 1797 and was one of the six original settlers of the town site. His wife started the first Sunday School, which formed the foundation of the church.

Goodwin remarks in his history of Cortland county: " The Hobarts were from Monson, Mass. Daniel, father of Alpheus, located on lot 43; Samuel on 15 and 16. Gideon settled with his father, and remained on the same farm until his death, April 30th, 1857. The farm is now owned and occupied by Manly Hobart."131

Buried in Lot 3, Section 10, of the Glenwood Cemetery. The transcription of the gravestone mistakenly read the year of death as 1826. A photograph of the gravestone shows that it is a small stone at the Hobart family lot with the inscription:
"S. H.
1746.1828."132

His sons had their surnames changed to Hobart in April 1831 by an act of the New York legislature. These were Samuel, Gideon, Joseph, Chester, Asa, Martin, and Alpheus. This was told by Frank G. Hobart of Beloit, Wisconsin, a grandson of Martin, to Percy Hobart Titus in 1942. Titus also relates that the information is also included in the 1886 book by Rev. L. Smith Hobart.133
