This family disappeared from Connecticut ; and it has been
suggested that this Daniel was Daniel, of Norwich, A"t., the pro-
prietors' meetings for which place were held in Mansfield, Conn,
The children above are not found in Norwich, and I have no

doubt Daniel, of Norwich, Vt., was of the stock of John,

of Norwich, Conn. I thought this one the probable Daniel, of
Norwich, but not proved, nor on further research did proof
accumulate. On the contrary, this Daniel no doubt settled in
Vermont, but was not the one sought. His descendants give him
the children above, who did not d. y., except that in the place of
Philip they give Turner. I am inclined to think that Turner
,was really Philip's middle name, and that he was named after his
uncle Philip Turner who m. Deborah (No. 104). They add to
the list of children :

priority.

In 1837, he recommended Long Pond (Lake Cochituate) to Boston
for its water, which would furnish nine millions gallons of water
daily. The city adopted another plan, but in 1844 his plan was
revived, and adopted in 1846. Says the "New England Historical
and Genealogical Register:" "The city of Boston is pre-eminently
indebted to the forecast, lirmness and professional skill of Mr.
Baldwin for its abundant and constant supply of pure water from
Cochituate." He was of commanding presence, being considerably
over six feet in stature, and remarkably well proportioned. The
elder Prof. Silliman said: "Rarely, if ever, have I met in life a
gentleman who combined so much expansion and depth of mind,
and so wide a range of knowledge, with such mildness, modesty
uiid gentleness." He was iSenator from Suffolk. He d. May 20,.
1862, quite suddenly.

much longer newspaper notice of his death. He was a s. of the late Rev. Daniel
Merrill, a Baptist preacher and author. He was b. in Sedgwick, Me., where his
father was pastor. After his marriage, he settled in Galesburg, Mich., and lived
there fourteen years. He was there made Deacon of the Baptist C'hurch. He
returned to Hudson, N. H., in 1849, and was until his death, one of the most active
members of the Baptist Church. Thovigh always in poor health, he was ''diligent
in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord." On the last Sabbath he lived, he
arose from his sick bed, and rode to the church to hear for the last time the Gospel
preached on earth. He was a liberal giver, whose heart was in religion, and he
died happy. I am under unusual obligations to Mrs. Merrill for a full and clear
account of her branch of the family, with the dates.
