Here is some additional info I have on Ichabod Corson that may be of interest to you.

Head of family at the first Census of the United States taken in 1790.

Stratford County
Rochester Town

Head of family: Courson, Ichabod
Free white males of 16 years and upward, including heads of families: 2
Free white males under 16 years: 2
Free white females, including heads of families: 5

From "The Descendants of Cornelius Corsonwhit, edited by Stanton D. Corson

Ichabod moved to Rochester, NH and his unnamed widow was buried there 14 Aug 1805 - known otherwise as Abigail Roberts. Ichabod's will was dated 22 Feb 1799 and proved 1 Nov 1801.

Lived on Salmon Falls Road, Rochestor, NH at one time (?). May be one list as public and civil service in Revolutionary War (DAR Patriot Index) as having had other wives: 1. Mary Allen, 2. Joanna Twombly. May be same as listed in NEHGR Vol 22 page 117 as being in Capt. Peter Staple's CO. in expedition against Louisburg in 1745. On same listing in Vol 25, page 250, shows also an Ichabod Cousins in the same expedition.

1775 Ichabod was a member of the Committee of Correspondence.
1778/1779 - Ichabod was on the Rochester Recruiting Committee for the Revolutionary War.

I have the same data that Betty sent you ref his birth, marriage, and death.

Hope this helps.
