    • Notes from Betty Harper: " Born July 2, 1748. Married Dec. 25, 1771Comfort Waller, who was born Nov. 15, 1750, at Kent, Conn. Eliphaletremoved with his wife to Stockbridge, Mass., where they erected their newhome. During its construction the War of the Revolution was reaching itscrisis, and Comfort, realizing the necessity of her husband's presencewith those who were to save the honor of their country, assisted herhusband in constructing their house by carrying the plaster for thechimney, and also by plastering one of the rooms, so that it would becompleted before cold weather set in, so that Eliphalet could join theregiment. Having no glass for the wndow frames, Comfort oiled paper forher windows. Stockbridge was then in the wilds of Massachusetts andfrequent incursions were made by the Indians, so that she had not only alonely but dangerous and anxious time of waiting. Eliphalet served inCaptain E. Whittlesey's company, 3rd Berkshire regiment. When theregiment returned to Boston in the fall of that year it reached the cityon Saturday. There being no stage going west until Monday, Eliphaletwalked home and found twins awaiting him. His service was in Oct. 1780.
