Ok so…finally I think I have gathered enough circumstantial evidence to be 90% sure of a few things regarding our Philip. While we still do not have anything that clearly states Philip, James, Asa Jr., John, Stephen & David were all brothers…and sons of Asa – through the deeds we can tell at one time or another they all lived within a close proximity to each other, where it seems the other Philip Jr. lived near the Sheldon/Sheldings Family, the Boyd’s & his father-in-law Ezekiel Stevens.
We can also see through the deeds that David Calef was also nearby our Philip and he was said to have married their sister Polly. As for the other sisters, I’m still not sure and will have to visit that briefly in my blog specifically about Asa. I highly recommend if you descend from one of the other brothers to do further research on the deeds in Hillsborough County as there are still more for the others I have not read. I also realize for most people this will all be clear as mud. I will at some point write up a proof summary which hopefully will be easier to follow and prove the situation better.
It seems adding to the confusion of our Philip is the fact that not only did Philip Jr remove to NY but our Philip did also, and further it seems that, he likely did have a second wife & more children. I am currently following this lead in Herniker County NY but those results will need to be discussed in an update at a later time. This lead is indicated in the census records (see part I) & the following deed:
Feb 24 1823 148-238 Philip of Winfield, NY to Dudley Porter of Haverhill “This indenture made this 24 day of February 1823 between Phillip Haseltine of the town of Winfield in the county of Herkiner and state of New York, and Dudly Porter of Haverhill”, Essex, Ma land from James Patterson of Londonderry, Phillip for the sum of 609.47 pd by Dudley land purchased from James Patterson Nov 4 1811; also all the land leased to him by Patterson with the same date. Witnesses John Goff & Hugh Boyes
Nov 4 1811 92-173 Philip Husbandman from James Patterson of Londonderry, 1500.00 tract description of land in Manchester doesn’t have names, mentions bridge, also common land purchased from [Merserins?] Webster; Witness John Dinsmore & William Rogers
May 1 1812 93-532 Philip to Dudley Porter Jr. of Haverhill, Merchant same land from James Patterson of Londonderry also mortgage 344.00 Witness Samuel Knight & Eleazer Porter; Philip mortgages the land from Porter
The next few deeds are for my ggg grandfather Simon Hazelton, Philip’s son and it seems safe to say it would be very weird if Simon mortgaged the same land if it wasn’t his father’s, which now connects us to the Philip in Herkiner County, NY.
