cer) Brainerd was born in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, England.

f By the manuscript Dea. Arnold's mother m. Daniel Brainwood and
Dea. Arnold's father was Joseph Arnold; and the town records state that
his widow ni. March .30, 1693, but it does not state whom she married.

J There were three early Sextons who had wives of the name of Hannah.
Mr. H. W. Brainard, in searching for Sexton records, found that Richard
Sexton jii. June 20. 1706. Hannah, dau. of Peter Buel (Simsbury rec-
ords). Richard d. March 27. 1714, and his estate was distributed April
4, 1727, at which date the widow Hannah had not married again.

Joseph Sexton, son of Thomas the miller at Boston, b. May 9, 1656,
at Boston, d. 1715 in Stonington, Conn. He m. July 15, 1680, ]\Irs. Han-
nah Cheesboro. b. May 20, 1643, dau. of Capt. George and Bridget (Thom-
Bon) Denison. and widow of Nathaniel Cheesboro, who d. Nov. 22, 1678.
Joseph Sexton died the same year that Daniel Brainerd died. Not either
of these two Hannahs could have been the third wife of Daniel Brainerd.

Hannah, the widow of George Sexton, Jr., of Hartford, Westfield, and
Newtown, L. I., and probably dau, of Sergt. Thomas Spencer, was un-
doubtedly the third wife of Daniel Brainerd. I have so placed it. Other
investigators may be able to find facts \ liave been unable to discover to
prove or disprove the statement.

session, 1830, to June 2, 1831. Colchester was taken from East
Haddam May 29, 1833. — From Annual Report of Connecticut
Historical Society^ May, 1897.

Daniel Brainerd* held many public offices of that day. He was
repeatedly honored by reappointment to the office of constable,
surveyor, fence viewer, town assessor, collector, and justice of the
peace, and with others was one appointed to stake out land and to
lay out highways. He was elected Commissioner by the General
Court in Hartford, Conn., in 1669. For his services as deputy to
the General Court see foot note p. 40. He was one of a com-
mittee to secure a minister, Jan. 1, 1682, and was elected deacon of
the Congregational Church in that place, serving in that capacity
through life.

At the present day it is interesting to note how particular the
inhabitants, 250 years ago, were in making an inventory of all their
household goods and their belongings or estates, therefore, I have
printed as an item of exceeding interest to the descendants, the
inventory and distribution of the property of Daniel Brainerd, our
common ancestor. The will has not been found.
