  • Name Oramel Hinckley  [1, 2, 3, 4
    Title Colonel 
    Died Between 23 and 25 Oct 1811  Montague City, Franklin, Massachusetts, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [5, 6, 7, 8, 9
    • According to sources, his death was either the 23rd or 25th of October. According to some sources, he may have actually died in Montague, Massachusettes instead of Thetford.
    Born 28 Feb 1768  Lebanon, New London, Connecticut, USA Find all individuals with events at this location  [2, 3, 8, 10, 11
    • Some derivative records appear to indicate that Oramel may have been born in Thetford, Vermont while others indicate Lebanon, Connecticut. Since his other siblings were born in Lebanon combined with the fact that his father Charles never permanently settled in Thetford, we are assuming that he was probably born in Lebanon. Furthermore, there are some discrepancies for Col. Orramel's date of birth. On source lists his birth as 29 feb 1766, but 1766 is not a leap year. The correct date may have been 1768 as indicated by most sources, but this date has not been reliably verified.

  • Notes 
    • The Hinckley family came early to Thetford and were very influential in the development of the town. Unlike most of Thetford's early residents, they came from Lebanon, Connectcut, the next town to Hebron. Oramel Hinckley settled on Thetford Hill, and owned large tracts of land in town. [Baldwin, History and Folklore of Post Mills Vermont, 7]
