Allen sold to Roger Newton and John Hine, and Roger ISTewton's
claim came to Fletcher N'ewton — then follows an agreement for
partition, deed, &c. The partition was carried out, 1727, by sons
of Barnabas, to whom their father had conveyed liberally of his
property — one can but think — not wishing them to have the
uncertain struggle his life must have been.

This history has come down in tradition in Woodbridge. Dr.
Goodsell, an aged and intelligent physician there twenty years
ago, told me that Sylvanus (son of Barnabas) was born after his
father's death, and left out of the inheritance — that his brothers
and sisters, ashamed to leave him nothing, conveyed to him Hogg
Meadow, then a swamp ; but as the country Avas cleared up, Syl-
vanus was richest of all. I soon found that it could not be true
of Sylvanus, but long after, by Milford records, that it was sub-
stantially true of his father. Hogg Meadow, originally a swamp
in the southwest part of AVoodbridge, is by far the best part of
the township.

The will of Barnabas does not mention Mary or Henry, but does
mention the rest as "all my children." He leaves "to y® College
at New Haven, fourty shillings." He was one of the grantees of
the charter of Derby, and in 1738, one of the fifteen inhabitants
of ^lilford incorporated, with others of New Haven, to make the
parish of Amity. He was a Selectman of Milford, a collector of
Rev. Samuel Andrews' rates, and, with Samuel Clark, Senior, an
appraiser of Gov. Treat's estate, in 1710. In 2 Sept., 1688, he
was, with his brother Theophilus, witness in Milford to a deed
from Sylvanus to Zachariah. About 1(392, he had from Milford,
on distribution, the 90th lot, nine- acres (M. Ree. 2, p. 72, and p.
126.) 1 March, 169|, he conveys land to Joseph Peck, Jun'r, and
William Fowler. He had children :

63. Henry, bapt. 14 .Tune, 1702; died before May, 1740, leaving no issue. I
have no doubt he was the one who graduated at Yale College, 1736, and is supposed,
in the account kept thereof the alumni, to have died next year. He appears as
deceased in the Yale catalogue of 1733.

Stephen, the homestead left by their father to the two.

1735, 28 Oct., he bought a farm in Xew Cheshire Parish
(Cheshire, Conn.,) of Thomas Brooks, and the same year another
of Stephen Osborn. He removed to Cheshire, and lived there
until 22d Dec, 1752, when, in consideration of £3,600 money, old
tenor, he conveyed the farm he lived on to Elnathan Beach. He
removed to Dutchess county, N. Y., and of that county, in 1759,
conveyed to his son Alexander, of Salisbury, Conn., his interest in
the estate of his father Zachary. The records of the church in
Cheshire, of the first pastor. Rev. Samuel Hall, are kept with
great carelessness, and in a handwriting very remarkably bad, so
that it tells little, but the AVallingford records tell something also.

it because, as I now remember, these are the only instances of the name of Alexander.

91. Z ACHARIAH * Zachariali ^ Zacliariali ^ Richard, ^ b. in Xew
Milford, 6 Sept., 1709; bapt. 12 Aug., 1722, in Episcopal Church in
Stratford. The hite S. H. Congar, Esq., of Newark, N. J , sup-
posed this to be the Zachariah who was of Parsippany (Hanover),
New Jersey. That one is said to have died 17 Nov., 1755, aged 52 ;
and Mr. Congar presumed some of the dates to be incorrect. This
did not, in the outset, look probable to me ; but I am now inclined
to think him the same — after a very thorough search. I can find
no other Zachariah of any branch to match either. John Ogden,
Esq., of Parsippany, writes me, in 1874, that one of the descend-
ants of that branch, now deceased, told him "the original ones
were Zachariah and Abraham, who came to this region to preach
the Gospel to the Indians, and did so with great success." At that
time, it was not known that the Zachariah I am now placing had
a brother Abraham ; but a visit to Stratford and Huntington dis-
closed that fact, that descendants of this branch, now in Hunt-
ington (two quite old ladies), had never heard of Zachariah and
Abraham, showing that they must either have died young or
settled at quite a distance. While they were young men, and
members of the church, the Rev. David Brainard, the zealous
apostle to the Indians came to Huntington and studied theology
