Excerpt from A Memoir of Eli Bickford: A Patriot of the Revolution
Eli Bickford, the subject of this memoir, was a native of Durham, N. H., and was born on the twenty-ninth day of September, 1754. His father, Samuel Bickford, had been united in marriage, in early life, to Elizabeth Clark, from whom was descended a numerous family of stalwart sons and daughters.
The early life of Eli Bickford, being spent upon the farm with his father, was distinguished by no remarkable incidents, save those so common to the early settlers. The principal sports and pastimes of his youth were hunting and fishing, in both of which he excelled.
