He was Captain at the Siege of Lewisburg in Queen Anne's War, 1747, and lived in North Brookfield, Mass., on the south side of the river near Mason's brook. The seige of Louisburg is given elsewhere as 8 June 175866 and also as a 49 day seige ending on 17 June 1745. Apparently there was more than one siege. Elizabeth Walker was a daughter of Edward and Elizabeth (Dean) Walker.
The will of William Old of Brookfield, Mass., was probated 10 May 1751. His widow was Elizabeth and he named his eldest son William, other sons Comfort, Ezekiel, Ruben (Reuben) and Josiah and his daughters Elizabeth, wife of Uriah Gilbert, Hannah, wife of Moses Barns, Abigail, wife of Jonathan Gilbert and Deborah, wife of Aaron Barns.
Note on children of William and Elizabeth (Walker) Old. Olds Family Genealogy does not include Reuben. He is also missing from Vital Records of Brookfield, Mass. Possibly adopted?
