BRIEF EXPLANATIONS


Great care has been taken to make these genealogies correct and complete. Every birth that could be found on the town records has been copied, and these have been compared with the record of baptisms up to 1800, and every baptism recorded of a child whose birth could not be found has been given here in the place of the birth.

Much biographical reading is here given because it was not convenient to place it in a former part of the book; indeed much that is in the former part has been taken from the genealogies for the purpose of making a more connected account in the historical part.

In the record of marriages and many of the families, where persons belonged to New Milford nothing is said of the place of residence, but if they resided elsewhere or removed, the place is given, if it was known.

The deaths of many persons are not here given because they are printed in the lists of inscriptions on the gravestones.

Many families resided in the town during forty years after the Revolution of whom no record of births could be obtained, for during those years there was great neglect in recording births, and all persons of many of those family names have disappeared from town.

The abbreviations are such, it is thought, as will be readily understood: m. stands for married, b. for born, d. for died, unm. for unmarried.

Only one set of numbers are used, as being the most convenient and readily understood. The number at the birth of a child is repeated only when the marriage of the same person is given further on.

Only the names of persons in the genealogies which cannot be traced in alphabetic order in any of the various families here recorded are given in the index of the book.


1. JOHN TAYLOR, of Windsor, Ct., the ancestor of the Taylor families of New England, came from England with the Rev. Ephraim Hewitt in 1639, and was in Windsor as early as 1640.

He was a respectable farmer, of an unblemished character, and much esteemed for his integrity and piety. He was father to Capt. Daniel Taylor of Danbury, and to the Rev. Nathaniel Taylor of New Milford. The father of the deceased was Mr. Thomas Taylor, one of the first settlers of Danbury: he lived to the 91st year of his age; had ten children, not one of whom died under the 57th year of his age, and but two of them died under 90. There are still living two brothers and two sisters of the deceased, who were all together with him the day before his death. Their several ages were as follows:

      The Deceased,died aged 94 years.
      Eldest surviving brother, died aged 89 years.
      The youngest brother, died aged 83 years.
      The eldest sister, died aged 86 years.
      The youngest sister, died aged 81 years.

      In all, 433 years.

      "The two eldest sons of the family lived each of them to be 90 years of age, which being added makes seven of the family to have lived 613 years, and four of them are still living, enjoying a comfortable state of health, and a good, sound constitution of body. This aged gentleman lived to see four children of the fifth generation; that is, his grandchildren's grandchildren. 'Honor thy father and thy mother that thy days may be long in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.' " Ch.:

        14. Nathaniel and others.

        14. Rev. Nathaniel, son of Daniel and _____ (Starr) Taylor, was graduated at Yale College in 1745; ordained the second pastor of the Congregational Church in New Milford June 29, 1748, where he remained in the pastoral office until his death, Dec. 9, 1800, ae. 78 years. He m. Tamar, dau. of the Rev. Daniel Boardman, according to the following entry in the Town Records: "The Rev. Mr. Nathaniel Taylor and Mistress Tamar Boardman of New Milford were joined together in marriage on the 23d day of February, A. D. 1748-9, by Samuel Canfield, Justice of the Peace." She departed this life, June 27, 1795, ae. 72 years. He afterwards m. Zippora (Strong) Bennett, who was a native of Long Island. Ch.:

          15. John Boardman, b. Jan. 17, 1750; d. Feb. 4, 1750.
          16. Urania, b. July 23, 1751; m. Daniel Everett, Esq.
          18. Augustine, b. Nov. 29, 1755.

          20. William, b. Mar. 20, 1764.

        Rev. Nathaniel Taylor, in his youth was a great athlete. When in college, an irate tutor rushed out one day from the college buildings and demanded to know who sent a foot-ball through his window. "I, sir;" said Taylor. "What did you do it for?" "I was trying to kick it over the college, sir." "Well, try it again!" and in an instant over it went, the first and perhaps the only time the feat was performed. While pastor at New Milford, a hurricane had blown down the fences two or three miles below the village; when hearing of it, he mounted his fleetest horse, rode forth, and told some men to go quickly and drive out the cattle which had gone into the corn, and he went like a whirlwind to warn the owners, by which promptness much damage was prevented. It is related, that at a certain time there was to be a great horse-race in the neighborhood, and a person came and asked to take one of his horses which was thought to be the finest in the town. He replied, "Oh, it won't do for a minister to patronize horse-racing-it won't do!" The man turned to leave, but as he reached the door Mr. Taylor called to him, "You will find the saddle and bridle hanging in the wood-house." The house next south of the Congregational Church he built for his oldest son, Nathaniel, and there his children were born and reared. There are five large portraits of Mr. Taylor and his wife, painted by Earl, an English artist. He is represented in his pulpit with a small Bible in his hand, given him by his father, and which is now in the possession of Mrs. President Porter, as are also some of his sermons written on very small sized paper. This Bible, he always held in his hand while preaching, having his sermons in this Bible, it being in so fine writing and the paper so small that it would lay in the Bible and not be seen by the congregation. Some of his sermons were on paper nearly double the size of the others, but could be held in the same Bible. These portraits were in possession of the great-grandson, George Taylor of New Milford.

          17. Col. Nathaniel, son of Rev. Nathaniel and Tamar Taylor, m. Ann Northrop, Aug. 31 1774. She was b. apr. 14, 1751, and d. Apr. 10, 1810, ae. 59 years. He m. 2d, Susanna Gunn, widow of Abner Gunn, Dec. 7, 1812. He d. Feb. 12, 1818, in his 65th year. He was the only son of three brothers who was not educated at Yale College; he preferring the business of apothecary and druggist, in which he devoted nearly all his life in New Milford, being often called Doctor Taylor. Of him his granddaughter, Mrs. President Porter, writes: "He died when I was too young to remember him, and not residing in the same place my knowledge of his life and character are limited; I only know that he was respected and loved, and was a kind, indulgent husband and father: and, judging from his letters found among my father's papers, he must have been a person of religious principle, if not a professing Christian." He and his wife were received to the fellowship of the Church under the "Half-way covenant," Nov. 2, 1777, and his son John, then one month and twelve days old, was baptized. Large portraits of him and his wife, painted by Earl, are in the possession of the Boardman family, and there is a group of three children, life-size, when the youngest, Nathaniel W., was twelve years of age and his brother twenty-one, owned by Mrs. Charlotte Huntington, the eldest child of their son John.

This clock marked the hour of the day, the day of the month, the changes of the moon, and has two hemisphere maps on the upper edge of the face. It still keeps time quite correctly, and its cherry case is well preserved. Ebenezer Leach, grandfather of Mrs. Lucy, was a working Tory, and the government confiscated all his property. He received a farm from the King in Canada, and drew a pension.

John Warner place. There seems to have been an Indian encampment about where his barns stand, since quantities of the broken flint stones from which they made arrow heads have been found there. Mr. Wanzer found a fine stone tomahawk, and also a stone implement for stretching bow-strings, near his house. He also found in the Wood Creek meadow land a stone implement shaped like a kitchen chopping knife-the edge and handle being circular. He has also a fragment of an Indian soap-stone pot, found in the sand-bank at the railroad station near the Great Falls.
