  • Notes 
    • According to Boyer (p7) he served as clerk in the Eastern frontier Expedition from June 17 to 1 Oct 1754 under Capt. Natan Adams. Soldier in the French & Indian War. Lost his life in the battle of Bloody Creek near Lake George NY 6 Jan 1756. Admons granted to his brother Ebenezer in 1756. His mother Elizabeth refused to act. This indicates that she was his nearest relative and that if he were married, his wife was not then alive. His inventory includes tools which suggest thst he was a carpenter.

      [19257 yr. 1756] Hidden Memorial p96 - The Hidden ancestry of Arthur Francis Short
      It was from her [Mrs Short] instigation that her husband's descent from Jonathan and Susanna (Hart) Hidden was traced, and she ably assisted in the work, until we had found proof that one of the two brothers who fell in the terrible battle of Bloody Brook was Mr. Short's ancestor.
      One notable proof was found in the Probate Court at Salem. Upon first inquiry for that ancient will of Jonathan Hidden, made in Rehoboth, we were informed by the young assistant that Salem records were for Essex Co. We asured her that we understood that Salem kept the records for the Colony as far back as the French and Indian War. She searched and finally brought us the yellow document; it was so frail that we could hardly handle it, but there it was, the will of Jonathan Hidden, and in it the name of his wife Susannah.
