[Please note...the following has been placed at the beginning of the Spooners of Acushnet who were patriots of the Revolutionary War.]

The record of Spooners of Acushnet in the military service of the Revolutionary War is a remarkable one. The writer believes that more persons of one surname were in the war for our independence of British sovereignty who were natives of the little town of Acushnet than served therein from any other one town in the country. That name was Spooner. A spirit of patriotism, loyalty and courage was predominant in that generation of the Spooners of this town. These soldiers were all descendants of John Spooner, who was among the earliest land owners and inhabitants here.

Of the Spooners in the service whose fathers were natives of the tract which is now Acushnet, there were Micah, Thomas, Ebenezer, William, Alden, Charles, Samuel, Thomas, Jeduthan, Cornelius, Ruggles, Wing, Charles, Clapp, Stevens, Benjamin, Uriah, Walter, Daniel, Eliakim, Wing, and Shearjashub. The last four were sons of Deacon Daniel and his father was Samuel Spooner, whose homestead was bounded on the north by the east and west road through Acushnet village. Also Zepheniah, Samuel, Thomas and Charles, four sons of Amaziah and Lydia (Fay) Spooner.

These persons who had Spooner mothers were in the service: Daniel, Timothy and Edward Ruggles, sons of Lucy Spooner and Edward Ruggles; John, Zepheniah and Elnathan Jenney, sons of Abigail Spooner and John Jenney.

Walter, above, was son of John Spooner and his wife who was Beulah Spooner, served as an officer with Commodore John Paul Jones. In 1776 they captured the brigantine "Active."
