damage, nor see it done by others ; nor play at unlawful games,
nor absent herself from Servis ; but in all things behave herself as
a faithful prentice ought to do." Wooster was bound to teach her
to "read, knit, spin and sow, and all manner of work, business or
learning, both of Religion and common business proper for such
an apprentice." He was also bound to support her, and at the
end of the term (ten years) furnish her two suits of apparel,
"linnen and w^oollen, for all parts of her body suitable for her,
and one good winter gown more, and a Bible."

15, 1687; first Monday of March, 1753, adm. on his estate to his
son Jacob, widow being under conservator, by order of Court.
Nov. 2, 1716, as Joseph, Junior, with his wife Hannah, he deeds
to Samuel, Senior, the other Joseph being his uncle. It appears,
from a deed made by him in 1718, that he was, like his father, a
cooper.

Jacob was made his residuary legatee. His wife's will was dated March 7, 1799.

136. Phcbe, m. Warner. In 1799, the wife of her brother Justice died, leaving
property to the grandchildren of this Phebe, deceased, to wit: Sarah, Laura and
Phebe Hicock.

He m., March 26, 1711, Hannah Briscoe. In 1717, as son of
Nathaniel Cooper, " lately of Milford," he conveys land in Milford.

1689. He continued to reside in Milford, but in the Society of
Amity. He m. Rebecca. Nov. 2, 1742, he was one of the original
members of the Society of Amity, and d. there, Jan. 21, 1764, and
aged 75, as appears by his tombstone, in Woodbridge, Conn. This
would seem to fix his identity. With the perverseness which
belonged to his brothers, he left few records of his family history.

His will, dated Marcli 28, 1763, says that having before given his
older children what he was capable of giving them, he now gives
to his five younger children : Jabez, Levi, Rebecca, Eli and Joseph.
He was Samuel, Sen., of Amity, in 1742, the other being Samuel *
Samuel^ Josiah - John.^ He was likely the Samuel who, in 1722,
received from his cousin, of Killingworth (Josiah), a deed of his
rights in the Indian Purchase. I think he must be the Samuel
who had, as per ISTew Haven Record:

137. Anue, b. Nov. 29, 1736.

138. Abigail, b. April 6, 1788.

[Of whom Abigail may be one of the other children.]

139. Jabez, living in 1763.

140. Levi, living in 1763.

[Hereafter, in this volume, will be found a Levi from Connecti-
cut, to Vermont and Canada, who not unlikely was this one.]

141. Rebecca, m., Oct. 16, 1764, Ricliard Speriy, of that part of Woodbridge,
Coun., tlicn New Haven; slie was his 2nJ wife, the 1st being Abigail, dau. of Capt.

Jr. ; (400) Richard, b. Aug. 17, 1765.

143. Anne, bapt. .June 23, 1745; d. y.

144. Eli, bapt. Feb. 14, 1747; d. y.

145. Eli, bapt. Jan. 17, 1748. In 1773 was of New Haven, no doubt that part of
Woodbridj;;e then New Haven. He must have been, I think, the Eli of Bethlehem,
Conn., estate (1794) letters to Samuel. He left a wife, Doroth}-, and ch. : (401)
Samuel, (402) Rebeckah, (403) Lucy, m. May 28, 1805, C. Minor; (404) Jabez, (405)

Darius, (406) Aaron. Is it his widow who, as "widow B ," d. February, 1824,

aged 74?

146. Israel, bapt. .Jan.' 4, 1750, d. y.

147. Joseph, bapt. March 8, 1752. In 1773 of Milford; d. in Bethlehem, Conn.,
Jan. 21, 1811, aged 59. His w. was received into the church there. May 6, 1792; d.
there Jan., 1820, aged 69. Her estate in Woodbury Probate District went to (407)
Leonard, (408) Keziali Benedict.

March 1, 1773, the Sperrys, Eli and Joseph, convey to Joseph
Beecher, having apparently waited for Joseph to be of age. Levi
was executor of Joseph. Farther on in this volume will be found
a query whether one of the older children was not Matthew.

a deed from his father in 1719, and ear-mark in 1720. His father

Nov. 28, 1765, aged 43, called Esquire, and his tombstone says:

" He, crowned in honor, ruled in Church and State,
With wisdom, faith and jvistice, truly great."

* John Congar, in 1670, sold a meadow, and "he did deliver a twig and turf ol the same, declaring that
he delivered that part in relation to the whole." I remember to have seen early instances of such passing
of property in Connecticut, and am sorry I carmot tell where. This carries us back to the old forms of
early law.
