Benjamin Proctor came to Alstead, from Ipswich, Mass., and settled in the southwestern part of the town, on lands owned by H. G. Barnes, of Walpole. He lived upon this place for many years, and then moved upon the farm now owned by Ezra Webster, where he died, March 23, 1854, aged eighty-six years. He married Susannah Lowe, who died April 5, 1858, aged eight-five years. Only two of his ten children are living, Ebenezer and Louisa. The latter married Philip Wheeler. Ebenezer was born November 17, 1805, and married Anna K., daughter of Daniel Bird. She was born in Watertown, Mass., in 1811. Of their six children, four are living. Of these, Mary F. married Merrill White and lives in Keene. Hattie A. married John Wood and lives in Athol, Mass. John E. lives in Walpole, and Frank H. in Athol, Mass. Ebenezer Proctor represented this town in 1849-50, and was selectman. He moved to Walpole in 1869, where he now resides.
