Benjamin East was only four years old when his father, Edward East, died. Benjamin was the fifth generation of Easts to be born in America when he took up arms for his country as a soldier in the American Revolution. (See DAR Patriot Index No. 143573.) He died in Davidson Co, Tennessee, probably because he had been granted land there as a result of his Revolutionary War service.
