Notes for Amos CONANT

Amos is said to have been a son of Lot Conant, although chronology makes it more likely that he was actually a son of Israel, as shown in this genealogy. However, barring more definite proof the connection must be considered "probable but unproved."

Amos lived at Stow, Middlesex, Massachusetts for a short time and then removed to Westminster, where he purchased Lot No. 46, 2nd Div. on 10 Oct 1764. He sold his farm on 16 Sep 1773 but remained in Westminster until 1782, when his name disappears from the tax lists. He then went to Halifax, Vermont. About 1800 he moved with his family to Jerico (now Bainbridge), New York.

There was an Amos Conant who served during the Revolutionary War as a private in Captain Elisha Jackson's company. He served for 27 days, during which time his company marched from Westminster under the command of Major Bridge to reinforce the Northern Army.
