Summary
Henry Alexander Scammell Dearborn (1783-1851) of Roxbury, Massachusetts was a politician, militia officer, author and horticulturist. Born in Exeter, New Hampshire, he was the son of Henry Dearborn (1751-1829), an American army officer and statesman, and Dorcas Osgood Marble. H.A.S. Dearborn's manuscript work, in one volume with loose drafts, is an edited transcription of journals kept from 1777 December 5 to 1782 October 5 by his father, Continental Army officer Henry Dearborn of New Hampshire. Drafts include prefatory material for the journal of Sullivan's Campaign against the Six Nations in 1779, and rough notes taken by H.A.S. Dearborn regarding the captivity of Mrs. Rennels, one of a party of freed Indian captives transported to Saratoga by Henry Dearborn in the summer of 1782. The work was intended for publication.
