  • Notes 
    • Eli Jr. was the oldest child of Eli Sr., and inherited the farm and the parentsstayed there with them, as was the custom. When he was about ten years of age,in the spring of 1801, his parents sold their place in Massachusetts andstarted for Vermont. The journey took 6 weeks, and they were the first personsto enter the town of Eden with a team of any kind.

      There were only three or four families livimg in the town at the time. Two dayswere spent with one of them, giving them time to construct a simple house forthemselves. They later moved to the farm where he lived until 1869, havinglived on the same farm for fifty years.

      In 12 Mar 1812, he enlisted in the United States army for six months, with CptBenjamin S. Edgerton's company, served his time, reenlisted for five years, andserved until peace was declared. His civil War records give him as a corporalin Vermont 3rd Artillery Division, Company B. He served under General WinfieldScott, and was wounded in the battle of Lundy's Lane.

      In 1820 Census for Eden, Orleans County, Vermont Eli Hinds Jnr was head of ahousehold of one male under 10, one 26-44, one female 26-44.

      In 1830 Census for Eden, Orleans County, Vermont, Eli Hynes Jr was head of ahousehold of one male under 5, two 5-9, one 10-14 one 30-39, two females under5, one 5-9, and two 30-39. Eli, Sally, their seven oldest children and ?

      In 1840 census Eli Hinds Jnr was living in a household of 2 males under 5, 2males 5-10, 1 male 10-15, 2 males 15-20, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 40-50, and 1 male70-80, 1 female under 5, 1 female 5-10, 2 females 10-15, 1 female 15-20, 1female 30-40, 1 female 40-50 and 1 female 70-80. All 13 children, his parentsEli and Polly and his sister Patty?

      In 1850 Census for Eden, Lamoille County, Vermony Census Eli and Lydia Hindswere living with children, Joel, Martha, Silas, Erastus, Mary A, Joanna andAdeline and Eli's parents Eli and Polly Hinds and his sister Patty.

      In June 1860 census Eli and Lydia Hinds, daughter Adeline and Eli's sistersPatti and Freelove are living on the next farm to his son Joel.

      At the death of his second wife, he was given a home with his daughter, MrsAbigail Fitch, where he lived the remainder of his life.

      At his death, sixty-eight out of eighty-three grandchildren were living, alsofour great grandchildren. Six of his sons were engaged in the war of theRebellion, He held at different times all the town offices of Eden, excepttown clerk. He represented the town for five years, 1828-1833. He was justiceof the peace for twenty years, and assistant county judge for two years.

      He was extremely modest and self-distrusting, never seeking the chief seat, butinstinctively shrank from being the object of special attention. He sought onlyto be useful in the sphere in which he moved. As regarded him, office was theseeker and he the sought. But when called to positions of trust and prominence,he was self reliant and firm in his convictions and administrations; and whilehe did not excel in any one specialty, yet by his sound judgment and unyieldingintegrity, he stood high in the estimation of those who knew him, andespecially of those who knew him best. His conscientiousness was remarkable,and those who knew him understood this full well. With a remarkable strength,he combined one of the most tender hearts, so that no man could feel, if he hadto decide against him, there could have entered into the elements which made uphis judgment, anything of a personal animosity.

      As to his religious character, though he belonged to no church, he was a firmbeliever in and a supporter of the Christian religion. His broad and liberalviews of Christianity did not consist in laxity of principle and life, but inlove and friendship for all. His life was evidence of this. The tendernesswithwhich he cherished his friends, may be illustrated thus: In speaking of IdaFitch, his granddaughter, he remarked: "As for me it is no matter. I have livedout my time, but she is young--", here his eyes filling with tears, he couldsay no more. But God's ways are not our ways, for just two weeks before hepassed the Heavenly portals, the Saviour came and bore away the amiable andpromising young lady to the beautiful mansions of immortality, where no diseasecan blight or death destroy; where sorrow's tears will never fall, and partingsnever come.
