Note

Note: In 1757, he belonged to Captain Loring Cushing's Train Band, in Cape Elizabeth. Ephraim Dyer "was a packet master and was known as 'Old Ready Money;'" the name suggests that he was unusually thrifty. From Cherryfield, Maine, comes the statement that "Capt. Ephraim Dyer, a brother of Henry Dyer, Jr., came east in his vessel of 70 tons burden, in 1765, and settled in Sullivan soon after. He made several trips in his vessel, and brought down settlers and supplies." This is confirmed by a grant of one hundred acres of land in Sullivan to Ephraim Dyer, as a settler of that town prior to 1784.(+)
 !MILITARY: Mass. Soldiers & Sailors of the Rev. War;Secretary of Commonwealth; 1899; Vol 5; p120; NOTE: Served variously for Cape Elizabeth from Nov 1775 to Dec 31, 1779, including building a fort at Falmouth Neck, and Continental Army.
Johnson & Mitchell Ancestry says father md. Hannah Thorndike. The first settlements on the Narraguagues River were made at Steuben & Milbridge ME. Maj. Joseph Wallace Sr. was in all probability the founder of the town of Milbridge & 1st settler. He and Capt. Andrew Simonton, Ephraim Dyer and Ebenezer Thorndike had mills in town in 1768. (Bangor Historical Mag. 7:99) Revolutionary pensioners in Hancock Co ME under act of Congress 1818--Ephraim Dyer is listed.
Query--father or son? Ephraim Dyer from Cape Elizabeth was in Capt Richard Mayberry's Co. (Maine at Valley Forge) Ephrain Dyer in Capt Loring's Train Band from Cape Elizabeth, res Cherryfield ME. Ephraim is said to have had a large family but only five (5) are known. Louise Muzrall 11 Duncan DR, Norwell MA believes they also had a son ASA DYER who married Sarah Simonton.
