March 14, 1786, aged 90. It appears, from the Guilford Records
(1720), that he was a weaver. He was Deacon in the three towns
where he resided. He bid off two shares (5%) in Goshen, July 14,
1738, and in that year was one of the Proprietors" Committee for
laying out the town. At the first Town Meeting, Dec. 6, 1739, he
was one of the Selectmen; at the next. Moderator. At the first
Proprietors' Meeting, he was chosen Treasurer; and after this, was
continually engaged in public business. He was associated wit!

his son-iu-law, Ebenezer Norton, in all the business of the Pro-
prietors ; and the latter seems to have been his right-hand man,
although it is reputed that he did not at iirst like the marriage
which made them relatives. Goshen had no Representatives until
1757; he was Representative in 1759 and 1760, the year of his
death. He is said to have been unassuming in manners, a good
citizen, and a meek and devoted Christian. His lands were in the
north part of Goshen ; his frame house was on the west side of
East street, a few rods southwest of the present brick house, near
the road leadino^ from East street to Hart Hollow. His widow was
blind for some time before she died.

and by his own memoranda, found amoug his loose papers, it
appears that his birth was two months after his father died, and four
years before his mother died. Mr. Baldwin goes on to say : "After
the death of the latter, I lived about two years with my uncle
Harrison ; after this, I lived with Amos Ball, my mother's uncle,
till I was fifteen years of age, when God in His Providence, was
pleased to remove him by death. After this, I put myself to learn
a trade, which I pursued until I was nineteen years of age, when
God gave me a greater sense of my lost state, and of the impor-
tance of salvation than I had ever yet had. Upon this being, I
resolved to seek God till I found Him through all." Here the
writing ends. But Moses went to Princeton, being a graduate of
the first class, 1757. He became a Presbyterian clergyman, and
settled in Palmer, Mass., in 1761. He was invited, 1760, from
Southold, L. I., on trial. He was thought to be not more than
"half a Presbyterian," and there was some objection to his instal-
lation on that account; but it took place June 17, 1761, and he
remained minister of that Church until June 19, 1811. He con-
tinued afterward in Palmer, and d. Nov. 2, 1813. He was a plain
preacher, struggling hard with a poorly-paid salary. He had at
the outset sixty pounds, and he bought of the town, for one hun-
dred and fifty pounds, a farm of one hundred and fifty acres, "set
apart for the ministers lot." He m. Rebecca Lee, b. March 10,

77. MICHAEL* Timothy ^ Samuel,^ b. in Guilford, Conn., April
2, 1719. His father owning land in Goshen, Conn., he went there
to "settle his father's rights," by which is to be understood such
settlement or use of the land as was necessary to prevent the
lapsing of the grant. This caution doubtless did much to encour-
age the surprising migration of earl}' times in Connecticut; and
this book has repeated instances of settlements, sometimes not
permanent, no doubt induced by this species of homestead law.
Bj'ron A. Baldwin informs me that three years was necessary to
this settlement. He returned before July 9, 1743, to Guilford.
The lands of Timothy, thus settled, came afterward mostly to his
son Stephen. He m. I''*' Dec. 7, 1749, Lucy Dudley, dau. "William

W^olcot, b. Nov. 4, 1746, dau. Josiah and Ruth (White) Wolcot,

to educate h\-. family. Judge Simeon Bildwin said he was a man'^
of " powerful, but uncultivated mind." He seems to have wished
his children to be cultivated ; and it is seldom a man has such a
family, of whom one Avas L^nited States Senator and Governor, one
Judge of the United States Supreme Court, one speaker of the
House in Ohio ; one daughter married Joel Barlow, and one Col.
Bomford. The other children were highly respectable. He was
a blacksmith, and a highly-respected descendant tells us that they
are proud of the trade. This feeling, of the dignity of labor, is
pleasing.

Michael died in 1787 ; adm., Oct. 12, 1787, to his sods Dudley
and Abraham. At the invasion of New Haven, during the Revo-
lutionary war, his house was on George street, facing College
street. It is said to have been protected by a British officer in
the expedition, who had been a paroled prisoner in the latest
French war, and had in some way found a temporary home at

He studied law, settled in Savannah, Ga., and was soon after a Member of the
Legislature. He planned the University of Georgia, drew the Charter, got it
adopted, and was for a while its President. He was a Member of the Continental
Congress from 1785 to 1788, and a Member of the Unitjd States Constitutional Con-
vention. From 1789 to 1799, he was a Representative in Congress; and from 1799

169. Ruth, b. Sept. 13, 1756; m., Jan. 26, 1781, the famous Jo 'I Barlow. He
wash. 1755, in Reading, Conn., youngest of ten children. His father determined
to send him to College, but died, leaving him barely sufficient to pay the expense.
In 1774, he entered Dartmouth, but soon removed to Yale, graduating in 1778,
delivering at commencement a poem, called "The Prospect of Peace," which was
quite popular. The army was composed largely of reliiiious men, and there was
much demand for Chaplains, so he served in that capacitj'. At the close of the war,
he retired from the army and ministry together, and resumed the study of law at
Hartford. He soon after, with Mr. Babcock, founded the "Hartford Mercury" a
brilliant sheet. His poetical reputation was then so high that the General Associa-
tion applied to him to prepare for its use a Psalmody. Some of his versifications
were of ^riat beauty. This was used till the one prepared by President Dwight;
the main reason for the change, it is said, being the report that Barlow had become
tinctured with French views. In 1787, the "Vision of Columbus" was published,
and he gave his attention to literature, being a very leading member of the "Club
of Hartford Wits." Its paper, "Tlie Anarchiad," had considerable influence toward
our present constitution. Shortly after, he went abroad as agent, in England and
France, of "The Scioto Land Company," which promised great things to him as
well as others. The managers of the Company were dishonest, and Barlow with-
drew still poor. He remained abroad (1789), gaining a scanty living by his pen,
and at last a reputation abroad. In 1795, he had business in the North of Europe,
and returning, found a commission to Algiers. He negotiated treaties with Algiers,
Tripoli and Tunis, and liberated many poor American sufferers. In 1797, he
returned to Paris, and engaged in commerce, gaining a large fortune. In 1805, he
returned with his wife to America, and settled in Washington, on ample grounds,
laid out with exquisite taste, and with a fine house. " Kalorama " was a noted spot.
In 1808, he published "The Columbiad .'' In 1811, he became Minister to France.
The "Berlin and Milan decree" gave much trouble to this country, and Barlow
wanted to see Napoleon in person. In Octoljer, 1812, he was invited to meet
him at Wilna, in Poland. The exposure caused his death, Dec. 22, 1812, at
Zai'nawica, in Poland. He was very happy whh his wife, who was a person of
superior intellect, amiable, dignified, yet easy and graceful, and of unusal beauty.
;My sketch of Mr. Barlow is drawn from an elegant article by one of his wife's
collateral relatives, (Rev. A. C. Baldwin, of Hartford,) in the "Netc Englander,"
for 1878. The writer has there a letter, written in 1796, by Mr. Barlow to his wife,
from. Algiers, when he thought his life uncertain. The letter is much too long to
quote here, but is a beautiful tribute, alike honorable to the husband and wife. It

displays the greatest love, respect and confidence, as well as an lionorable desire fur
further li'ood, and trust in her to help in tliat. The letter is very touchin;:: in its
sentiments. He gave her by his will all his i)roperty. She died ilay 30, 1818.

* In Lyman Beecher's Autobiographj", he is asked by Mrs. Stowe if there were any slaves in Nortli
Guilford. He says: "Yes, a few: Darb, the fiddler, was a slave, belonged to old Mr. Ben. Rossitur. Darb
came in one evening and played dancing- tunes after I was abed. Tiiere were about a dozen sla\es in North
Guilford, bnt the slavery was very lenient. Old Priest Fowler's Moses was qyite the man of business; sent
Johnny Fowler to College, and paid the bills, managed the farm, rang the church bell, and was factotum.
He lived a slave because he was a king."

father's rights there, situated in the north and northeast part of
the town. He m., Nov. 7, 1752, Freelove Collins, b. Nov. 30, 1732,
dau. Daniel and Lois (Cornwall) Collins, of Goshen. She d. Dec.
13, 1765 ; he, Jan. 27, 1766. This Stephen, says the late Lewis M.
Norton, lived on East street, where his uncle Nathaniel did. He
moved, says Byron A. Baldwin, to Goshen, between 1757 and
November, 1762. It must have been at least as late as 1760, as,
after his decease, his will of that date (Litchfield Probate) describes
him as of (iruilford, and Freelove as his only daughter. In 1782,
however, Abigail shared in the distribution, and as Freelove did
not, nor her heirs, she no doubt died without issue.
