8          GEORGE3     (John2, Johannes1), son of John and Isabelle (Williams) Outman, was probably born after 27 May 1722 (as he was not included in the baptism of his other brother and sister at that time), and was baptized at Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut, 16 September 1722 (records of Stratford Episcopal Church); he died at Arlington, Bennington County, Vermont, 17 July 1793 (gravestone St. James Cemetery, Arlington).  He married ca 1745 Ruth Wooster, who died 16 March 1814 at the age of 89 years.  George joined the Episcopal Church at Stratford 2 July 1747.


This family removed to Arlington, Vermont, probably about 1765, where George acquired a considerable estate in land and conducted a black smithing business. 

Following the close of the French and Indian Wars in 1760 and the possession of Canada by the British, thus relieving the menace of frequent incursions by the Indians into this territory, settlers from New England, largely from Connecticut, who as early as 1750 felt themselves to be crowded, flocked into the so-called Hampshire Grants, so that by the outbreak of the War of the American Revolution, the population of Vermont had reached 20,000 or more.  Bennington and Addison were settled in 1761; Arlington and Rutland in 1762; Pownal 1763; Poultney, Hubbardtown and Manchester in 1764.  The exact date of the removal of George Outman to Arlington is not known, but he is believed to have been one of the earliest settlers. 


The family were prominent members of St. James Episcopal Church of Arlington and many of the Oatman family, representing four generations, are buried in the adjoining cemetery.


Quoted from Aldrich's Bennington County:


"President Hopkins used to say that in the first settlement of Bennington County, the applicants for land were disposed of according to their religious views.  Congregationalists were mostly sent to Bennington, Baptists to Shaftsbury, the Episcopalians to Arlington, and those who had no creed were sent to Pownal."


While the town record of Arlington for the period prior to 1790 are meager - many of the records being missing - a list of the members of this family are entered in the records, preparatory no doubt to the settlement of George's estate, the details of which settlement do not appear of record.


George was on the Vermont payroll of Captain Matthew Lyon's Company of Alarm in 1780:  No. of Days in Service - 5; No. miles travel - 50; Amount Pay October Alarm - 0.6.8 -- Total, 1.3.4.

26        Freelove, b. ca 1755-1760, probably Stratford, Fairfield Co., CT;  Her death date was earlier reported as 10 March 1830.  Genealogies of Connecticut Families, Vol. I, p. 44, gives her death date as 4 January 1806 "in her 51st year".  The same entry attributes the original death date to her husband's fourth wife, also named Freelove; bur. Shaftsbury, Bennington Co., VT; m. Isaac Andrus, ca 1772-73.


Captain Isaac Andrus was born in Norwich County, Connecticut, 22 April 1731, died at Shaftsbury, Bennington County, Vermont, 30 June 1824, and is buried in the Shaftsbury Centre cemetery.  He married:  1) ca 1753, Elizabeth, daughter of Jeremiah and Mary (Witter) Tracy, who was born at Norwich, Connecticut, 21 January 1731/32, d. 27 August 1771, Shaftsbury, Vermont;  2) Freelove Oatman (her name was shown as "Truelove" in Genealogies, ibid;  3) Mrs. Anna Spencer, widow of Isaac Spencer, who died 27 January 1809, at the age of 58;  and 4) Mrs. Freelove (Wilcox) Parks, who died 10 March 1830 in her 71st year.  She was the mother of the Mary Parks who married her stepson, David Andrus, below.


Isaac lived for a time at Windham and later at Newent, Connecticut.  On 27 February 1765 he sold his farm at Newent and moved to Shaftsbury, Vermont (then a part of Albany County, New York).  He was one of the earliest members of the Baptist Church there.  He was a veteran of the French and Indian Wars, and served as private, sergeant, lieutenant and captain during the Revolutionary War.
