Yes, page 85 lists Major Chester as 5th child of Daniel, 3rd son of Samuel. Info about Major Chester: "b. 1783, left Connecticut, in early life, lived with a brother Stephen in the state of New York, m. and settled in Waltham, Mass., received from President Madison, the appointment of captain of the 9th Regiment of Vermont Infantry; was promoted to major and served through the way of 1812; settled in Troy, N.Y.; represented the town three years in the state legislature; then removed to Swansey, where he still lives in his 88th year, with his third wife. Ch. 8th Gen.: Eleven in number, six living. 1. Chester, Watertown, Mass. 2 Joseph Groton, N.H. 3. Leon, Swansey. 4 William, killed in the army of the Potomac, wife and two sons in Chelsea, Mass.; one daughter m. Albert Kingsbury, Keene, N.H.; another m. Ebenezer F. Lane, Swansey; and the 3d. Ephraim Whaler, Momence, Ill. 5 Hannah P., b May 21, 1829, m. Aug. 14, 1850, E.F. Lane." Then it lists children of the 9th generation. Could not detect there was any further information about Chester the son, however.
