Q: Would or could you have done things differently, if so how? A: No not that I can think of.

Q: Do you have any regrets? A: No regrets.

Q: What was your job in the American Revolutionary War? A: My job was to sign the Association Test. Patriots collected signatures of people opposed to what they considered the hostile actions by the British fleets and armies.

Q: What did you do after the war? A: I returned to Newmarket and my work in town affairs. I also ran a store next to the school house. I supported his family as a teacher, and was elected and appointed to serve in local government for all but one year of the remainder of my life, as selectman, auditor, assessor, scrivener, and other roles
