236. Shubal CLAGHORN II (475)(383) (192) (193) was born on 16 Sep 1696 in Barnstable, Barnstable, MA. (383)(476) (81)(194) [Judy Goldbaum's e-mail gives birth date of 20 Sep 1696. This agrees with Bonnie Hubbard's data and also the data of Tim Cushman. Smith's Claghorn Study has 16 Sep 1696.] He died on 14 Jan 1754 in Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard, MA. (383)(192) (81) [Judy Goldbaum's data gives death place as Barnstable, MA; Smith has Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard.] Bonnie Hubbard has first name spelled "Shubael" and reports that C.E. Banks said that Shubal was a "mariner."
"Shubael(II) was a soldier in the Louisburg Expedition in 1745, a 'Captain in Lumbard's Co., Seventh Mass. Col. Shubael Gorham,' according to Mr. Claghorn. The New England colonists had been growing more and more worried about the huge French fortifications being built at Louisburg and thought they would be much safer if the British controlled the whole coast. Therefore they raised a force of farmers, fishermen, craftsmen and laborers
and set off for what is now Nova Scotia. They were joined by some British ships. After a siege of 49 days the great fortress surrendered, only to be returned to France under the Treaty of Aix-la-Chappelle in 1748. Then followed the establishment of Halifax (1749), the expulsion of the Acadians (1755) and the recapture and destruction of Louisburg (1758). At some time, whether before or after his marriage I don't know, Shubael moved from Barnstable to Chilmark." (Bonnie Hubbard)

He was married to Experience HAWES before 1725 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, MA ?.
