  • Notes 
    • CONFLICT: Death 17 Aug 1690, AFN# 3GLN-SS BIOGRAPHY: He was baptized in Windsor,CT, 27 Sep 1640. Religion unknown. Joshua took the family and personal property ofhis deceased father, Thomas, after the latter's death in 1857 and moved to Windsor Center (Simsbury). He was granded 4 acres "near Thomas Maskill" at Massaco, Hartford,Connecticut 29 April 1667. He was granted original tracts of land in Connecticut (Simsbury Patent) by King Charles II, 23 April 1687. Was elected Representative to General Assembly, from Simsbury, 1660, 1671, and 1690. BIOGRAPHY: Will: Probate see manwaring 1:467, which shows inventory of 474/8/0 taken 25 Dec 1690, by John Higley and Samuel Wilcox (Selectmen) and his two brothers, Benajah and Nathaniel. The Puritans evidently din not celebrate Christmas. Records of his probate list his children. However, one reference does not list son Joshua who was surely living (possibly an error by Manwaring). Seaver lists another child, Joab, not mentioned by McCracken. BIOGRAPHY: Note:It is Joshua's name that should have occupied the second line in the newlycut stone of the Holcombes in the cemetery at Granby
