Betsy Fay (OPF page 235) daughter of Nathan and Mollie Perrin
Betsy or Betsey (the name is spelled both ways) was one of the nine children of Nathan and Mary (Mollie) Perrin. Orlin continues the story of three of them, Edward, Patty and Nathan. For the others, all daughters (son Perrin having died in his first year), Orlin gives only the husband's name, although for Eunice he does list two children.
Nathan was born in Connecticut. It is not clear when he went north; but when the war came, he joined the Vermont militia. He later applied for a pension on the basis of this service, and was granted one. After the war, he seems to have gone to Hampshire County in western Massachusetts, for he was married in Cummington, Hampshire County, to Mary Perrin on July 3, 1782. She was born on May 6, 1755, in Brimfield, also Hampshire; and their daughter Betsy was born in Plainfield, also Hampshire. At some point, the family moved to Jericho, Vermont.
