Ompany, Samuel, Jr., 1730 -

Born at Christiantown on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts around 1730, Samuel Ompany, Jr. was the son of Samuel and Mercy Ompany of Chilmark, and the husband of Zerviah Abraham of Natick.  The couple had three children: Samuel, Desire/Zerviah, and Hosea.  As a youth, Ompany was educated on the Elizabeth Islands and at Gay Head by missionaries funded through the New England Company.  During the French and Indian Wars, he served as a batteaux-man in Captain John Allen's Company at Crown Point in 1756. 
 
After he and his wife inherited thirteen parcels of unproductive land in Natick from her parents around 1763, they petitioned the Massachusetts legislature to sell the property and invest the proceeds for their later use.  After a long sickness, Samuel Ompany died sometime before April of 1795.  Pierce and Segel, Wampanoag Families of Martha's Vineyard, 655-658.
