At a DAR convention in April I learned about a genealogical society for descendants of tavern owners/innkeepers in the original 13 colonies. My emails have not yet been answered. It's called "Flagon and Trencher". URL: http://www.flagonandtrencher.org/index.html
2020 update: the website is http://www.flagonandtrencher.org/
The website indicates my ancestor Obadiah Clement owned a tavern in Hebron, NH. My ancestor James Gould married Sophia Paine; her father John Paine owned a tavern near Dartmouth college in Hanover, NH. It turns out the president of the college wanted to yank Paine's license. Any leads would be helpful.
