2. JOSEPH^ JoseplVof Hadley, Mass., b. in Milford, Conn.,
about 1640 ; bapt. March 23, 1644. In 1666, he was freeman in
Hadley, where he settled with his father. They not unlikely lived
together, as the father con\ eyed to the son one-half in common
of the homestead. He was named executor in his fathers will,
but died first, ISTov. 21, 1681. He m. Sarah Coley, of Milford,
bapt. iu 1648, dan. Benjamin ; she d. 1689.

18. Samuel, April 7, 1679.

19. Hannah, April 27, 1681. I think she may have been the one admitted to
full communion in Milford Church, Feb. 18, 1702, where her brother James then
lived.

Mr. Boltwood's "History of Hadley" makes Sarah a 2"*^ wife,
making the name of the first Elizabeth. In the Hadley Records,
Mehitable 1st and 2nd, Hannah and the first Mary appear as the
children of Joseph and Elizabeth his wife, Samuel and 3rd
Hannah appear to Joseph and Sarah.

In January, 1677, one of the daughters of Joseph was admon-
ished at Court for wearing silk contrary to law. This was under
an old sumptuary law of Massachusets, passed in 1651, forbidding
the use of silk to persons whose estates were not worth £200.
Six females were tried at this Court for the ofi'euse ; two of them
" for wearing it in a fiaunting manner and excess of apparel, to
he offence of sober people.'' There appears to have been, about
lis time, a zeal that far outran the law, as several of the estates,
this instance, were over the limit, and one was over £1,000.

James was one of the proprietors of Durham at the date of the
patent, May 1, 1708. His dau. Hannah was bapt. in Milford, as
dan. of James, of Durham. He continued to reside in Durham,
probably until after 1724, but removed to Saybrook, Conn., where
his will, dated 1748, w^as proved in 1756. He remembered his ^
w^ife Hannah, and children, Elizabeth, Hannah and Moses. As an
extended search has failed to reveal any history for David and
Aaron, they were probably dead without issue.

20. BENJAMIN ^ Benjamin ^ Joseph,^ of Newark, N. J. The
late Mr. Samuel Cougar, of Newark, is the very leading authority \
on the early settlers of Newark. He states that Joseph, or his
brother Benjamin, or Joseph and Benjamin had

I find among the papers of Mr. Cougar, which I have examined
since his decease, that Rebecca, the widow of Joseph, d. June 17,
1748, aged 61. (Roberts' Papers.) Mr. Cougar states, in his book,
that Aaron or Benjamin, in 1752 and 1753, sold lands inherited
from Benjamin and Joseph, David agreeing. Dr. Dodd gives a
daughter

94. Sarah, who. In' her descendants, is said to have been b. April 20, 1720, and
dau. of Benjamin. She m. her cousin Ezekiel* John 3 Jonathans Joseph. i

On the authority of the descendants who claim to be descended
from three Benjamins in succession, I make this Benjamin instead
of Joseph.

were quite leading citizens Jan. 17, 173f, he paid Stephen and
Timothy Hopkins £380 for a mill and mill site, at that place. The
management of the mill must have sometimes annoyed him. In
1753, the town made a fuss about the mill, thinking the grinding
not well done ; and the next year, a committee was appointed, the
corn not being "well ground," who came to an agreement with
him and Jonathan, Jr. He d. Jan. 5, 1761.

examination of deeds in Milford Records from this Daniel, leave
no doubt of the line.

58. SAMUEL 3 David 2 Joseph, 1 b. in Milford, Conn., Dec.
1683. It has cost me great labor to trace the various Samut
involving much search of land records, as well as other. T
main trouble has been to ascertain, of the many of the nar
which survived and had descendants. That this Samuel surviv
and lived in Milford, is shown by deed (Vol. 9, page 175, Mil
ford Records,) where he receives a deed from his brother Nathan.
May 9, 1739 ; and (in Yol. 8, page 477,) the two convey to Samuel
Brisco, March 17, 1735. There are several other deeds between
the brothers. He was Samuel, Jr., to distinguish him from Sam-
uel 3 Josiah 2 John,i b. March 14, 167|. He m., April 9, 1712, Sa"^"J^

where three of his four sons settled. I cannot date his death, b
