Elizabeth mentions this casually in her diary, but there is no further mention of him until the preparations for their marriage began. The two were married on June 14, Charles moved into the house with Elizabeth and her mother and took charge of the farm.
Elizabeth was very active socially and seems to have entertained guests at her house almost continuously. She acted as a midwife and ministered to the sick in the community.

On this large farm, the women were sometimes feeding more that 20 farm hands in addition to the regular household members.
Elizabeth raised two children, as well as a girl named Thankful Hitchcock who she treated like daughter. After her children had grow and moved away, the Phelps' grandchildren came frequently to spend extended periods of time on the farm at "Forty Acres.

There is also outgoing correspondnece to Elizabeth Phelps' son, her husband, and friend Penelope Williams of Roxbury, Massachusetts. Sarah was the daughter of Moses Parsons of Haverhill.

The couple apparantly lived within the town stockade, where Moses is said to have built a small house for them near his parent's home. In , at the age of 28, Elizabeth Porter gave birth to a baby girl, also named Elizabeth. According to family stories, Elizabeth grew unhappy with the crowded conditions of life in the Hadley stockade and convinced her husband to build a new house for the family on his northern lands. Here, however, the family stories seem to conflict. When the house was finished in , Elizabeth, being a city girl at heart, was reportedly unhappy to move two miles north of town into the first house built outside the stockade.
She became more disturbed in , when her husband went to fight in the French and Indian War as Captain of a town regiment. Letters to Moses at this time, tell of her fears that he would not return. Then on September 8, , those fears came true. Again, family history relates this tragedy.
Captain Porter's sword was brought back to Hadley by his Indian body servant. Elizabeth, hearing a knock at one of the north windows, pushed back the heavy shutter and the sword was handed in to her. She immediately understood the significance of this gesture. Elizabeth was thus left alone with her eight year old daughter on this large farm so far from town.
The two seem to have lived with family in Hadley for the winter and there was some talk as to whether or not they would move back to the big farm in the spring. Elizabeth chose to do so and she hired a kinsman named Worthington to manage the farm. He lived with the two Porter women until , when the younger Elizabeth married. Her husband, Charles Phelps moved in and took charge of the farm.
It is perhaps surprising that Widow Porter never remarried, as she was only 36 years old when Moses died and was certainly a wealthy woman. It is said that she never recovered from the loss of her husband. She was apparantly depressed and sickly for the rest of her life and stories say she took up the "habit" of the day, opium and alcohol. However, these tales may be unfounded, as Elizabeth was 89 years old when she died in There are only a few papers pertaining to Elizabeth Porter.
These are contained in BOX 3 with those of her husband Moses. They consist of correspondence between the two in , when Moses was away fighting in the French and Indian War, right before his death. Moses Porter was born in Hadley, January 13, The couple lived in or near Moses' parents home within the Hadley stockade. Although, not formally educated, Moses was a wealthy man. In , he was executor of his father's large estate and inherited a great deal of land from it. In fact, by , Moses and his family had acquired ownership of practically all the tract of land known as "Forty Acres and its skirts.
By , conditions within the town stockade had become crowded. Moses Porter decided it was time to move north to "Forty Acres" and build a new home for his family. On May 27, , the roof was raised. By December, the house was apparantly ready for occupancy and Moses moved his wife and daughter in. The new farm was a large and successful one. According to his estate inventory, Moses Porter owned 61 acres of farm and 50 acres of skirt, along with acres of land elsewhere in town.
He also had a one seventh share of the saw mill in North Hadley. Moses owned three horses and a colt, two steer, a bull, a yoke of oxen, four heifers, four cows and calves, as well as numerous smaller animals. He was one of few men in town to own a riding chair and a sleigh, in addition to the usual farm equipment. To carry out all the work on such a large farm, owned two of the 18 slaves living in the town of Hadley at this time, and probably had additional farm hands and indentured servants.
Moses Porter was also a military man. Moses Porter was only 33 years old and left behind a young widow and an eight year old daughter, Elizabeth. These help to document the early years of the house and farm. They consist of several letters to Elizabeth in , while he was fighting in the War.
Also included are a number of deeds for land Moses purchased in the s and 50s. Excerpts from the diary of Sarah Porter give dates of the construction of the house.
