    D Stephen Thrall's Genealogy of the Thrall's says on page 23 ...

    "As the Winchell family were near neighbours and good friends of the Thrall family, Samuel Thrall and his older sister both maried Winchells. Samuel was a good student, and he was given jobs that required a knowledge of bookkeeping and record keeping, and as he moved from Windsor to Granville, Mass, and then to Rutland, Vermont, he told his children about their forebears. He moved to Granville, Massachusetts and reared his family there. The country was hilly but he had a farm in Granville, and moved from there to Vermont in 1790. samuel Thrall served in the Colonial Army and held a commission in the English troops in the French War of 1762. When the Revolution came he was 39 years old and he enlisted in the Colonial Army. He was a Supply Officer in the Massachusetts Militia at Ticonderoga and several other campaigns. In the last year of the Revolution, he was Captain of a Company of Militia that marched into the Mohawk Valley to stop an English or Indain attack. His son Jesse, served the same Company. After the war, Samuel Thrall returned to Granville, Mass, and in 1788-89 was a member of the General Court at Boston. He had sympathised with the leaders of Says' Rebellion, however, on the currency situation, and as a result suffered much criticism, and his property was threatened. In 1790 at the age of 53, he moved to Vermont with most of his children and most of his worldly goods. For thirty years he was a much revered citizen of Rutland. His property was in what is now West Rutland, and marble quarries are near the old Thrall homestead. Samuel is buried in the old west Rutland Cemetary and a marble marker tells of his Revolutionary activites. His wife lucy, and son Chauncey Thrall are buried nearby. Samuel was five feet nine inches tall and weighed a little over 160 pounds. He remained in sound health until shortly before he died at the age of 84."
