Nathaniel was probably the son of Joseph and Dorcas (Staples) Hanscom,  
though Fogg's notes make him the son of Joseph and Lydia (Spinney)  
Hanscom. He was a shipwright and a Revolutionary War soldier and died  
in Eliot, Maine. (Old Kittery and Her Families.)

Nathaniel enlisted, or was drafted, August 1, 1776. He served as a  
private in Captain S. Leighton's company, Col. E. Francis' regiment,  
of the Massachusetts State Troops and was discharged November 30,  
1776. He enlisted February 20, 1777, for three years, serving as a  
private in Captain J. Donnel's company of the 12th Massachusetts  
Continental Infantry. He was in the company while it was at Valley  
Forge on January 22, 1778 and fought in the Battle of Monmouth. After  
being honorably discharged February 20, 1780, at Fishkill, NY, he  
either enlisted or was drafted on April 29, 1780, and served as a  
private in Captain T. Bragdon's company, Lt. Col. J. Prime's  
battalion, being discharged December 8, 1780. He was pensioned April  
1, 1818, receiving $96 a year, which was continued until his death. On  
July 4, 1820, Nathaniel was 63 years old and owned a house and land in  
Eliot, ME. In 1835, his widow Lucy, a resident of Eliot age 78,  
applied for State bounty. (Kittery and Eliot, Maine in the American  
Revolution, 1775-1783) (Revolutionary War Bounty Land Grants Awarded  
by State Governments)

MOCA records show that Nathaniel and Lucy were married on Dec. 1, 1781.

> Hi Lewis,
> I've been doing a bit more work on our family tree, and have found that through Lucy Staples, wife of Nathaniel Hanscom, our 4th great grandfather. we have some very interesting relatives.
> How about Alfonso the Slobberer, one of the kings of Spain? Or Duncan the Diseased, King of Scotland? Or Aethelred the Unready, King of England? What a fascinating collection of people!
> It turns out that we are directly descended from William I of England (William the Conqueror), otherwise known as William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy, who invaded England in 1066.
> It gets easier to trace the family tree when you hit a royal family, since people tend to keep track of their kings and queens better than the common folk. I've even found out that William the Conqueror was about 5'10", a couple of inches taller than most men of his time. He was very healthy, but got quite fat as he grew older. The King of France at the time said that William looked like he was pregnant!
> We have ancestors from all over the place - many of the royal houses of Europe.
