From the Book, "The Tenney Family, or, the Decendents of Thomas Tenney of Rowley." Page 45 169.-V-.60 - Anne Tenney.

Anne Tenney, born in Norwich, CT, February 5, 1726-27, daughter of Joseph and Abigail (Wood), married March 7, 1742-43, Thomas Hazen of Woodbury, Conneticut. He removed in 1774 to Hartford, Vermont and in 1775, built the first two storey house in the town. He was a large land holder. They had 18 children. Sixteen of them lived and became the ancestors of numerous Hazens in Vermont and vicinity, among whom were General William B. Hazen, and the missionary to India. Mrs. Hazen died in 1802. He was born September 30, 1719 and died August 19, 1782.

From FTM CD #3, Record #2619

The tradition is that Ann Hazen went up to visit her son Joshua and liked the country so well she never went back to Connecticut. It has also been handed down that she was afraid her sons would go to sea, and so wished to move further inland. Thomas Hazen and his son Asa settled on the farm bordering on the Norwich line and Connecticut River which was owned by Henry Allen Hazen in 1944. They had at first a log cabin, but in 1775 built near the same spot the first two story house in town. The tradition that the men shingling the house heard the distant booming of the cannon at the Battle of Bunker Hill is supported by a statement in the diary of President Wheelock of Dartmouth and by similar reports from other places.
