      • Harvey, Elijah, s. Medad and Anna, b July 14 1773
      • Samuel, s. Medad and Martha, Feb 12 1777
      This seems to indicate that Anna passed and Medad married (2) Martha. There is no record of this Medad’s death in Massachusetts that I can find so he probably moved on with his new wife. In fact, by 1780 Medad and Martha have a child, Henry**, at Sanford’s R
      idge, Warren County, NY. Then by 1785 (see below) he owns land in Fort Ann.
