    Notes 
    • From Whitcher’s History of Haverhill:
      Besides large ownership of real estate in Haverhill, Bath, Burlington, Vt., and Plattsburg, N.Y., Col. Moody Bedell became interested in the purchase of an immense tract of land in northern New Hampshire known as “Philip Grant” and began a settlement, called “Indian Stream
      Settlement,” but the War of 1812 called him away. The legislature refused to confirm the “King Philip” title, and he became greatly embarrassed dying a poor man. He was one of the leading citizens of Haverhill, distinguished for his enterprise, liberality and ability. The bridge between Haverhill Corner and South Newbury was built by him and is known as “Bedel’s Bridge.” He also built a large brick building at the Brook which was afterward used as a tavern. He lived at one time in the old toll house at the foot of Powder House Hill. He served as moderator at several town meetings, as selectman three times and as representative to the General Court five times.
