He was b. and always resided on the homestead farm near Smith lake, Poquonoe, Groton, Conn. He also owned land at "Nowayanck." This land, according to the original inventory of his estate, by an error in surveying comprised thirty acres more than actually existed. This error was afterward corrected and the land shows a valuation of about $12 an acre. By his will he gave L 1648 2s. 10d. to the family, one-third to his wife, and the balance equally among the eleven children, except to Nathan, the oldest son, who had received his full double share during his father's life-time. He d. Nov. 21, 1724, fifty-one years of age. His wife, called Dollie, was b. Dec. 6, 1679, and d. May 25, 1736.
