    Ephraim Brewster, a descendant of Elder Brewster, who came to this country in the "Mayflower," came to Woodstock, from Preston, Conn., in the spring of 1775, purchasing three hundred acres of land on the South Branch of Otta Quechee river, about a mile and a half south of the court-house. The following spring he moved his family here. His wife was Miss Margary Parks, daughter of Elder Paul Parks, of Preston, Conn., by whom he reared six children, viz.: Polly, Paul, Sally, Seth, Ephraim, and Margary. Mr. Brewster served in the French and Indian war, and was one of the number who went the rescue of Royalton in 1780. He died May 10, 1810, aged seventy-nine years. Mrs. Brewster died February 20, 1841. Paul and Dr. Ephraim Brewster served in the war of 1812, the former as a nurse in the hospital, the latter as a physician, and was accidently drowned in Lake Champlain.
