  • Notes 
    • CONFLICT: http://claim.goldrush.com/~humbert death date 5 May 1740. AFN: GTTM-VV, was married to Mary Bliss in Simsbury,Hartford,Connecticut; Death Date 5 Feb 1741 BIOGRAPHY: History: Although Mary's father's family was among the first group to come to Hartford, she was living in Springfield when she married Nathaniel in 1670. Their first child is recorded as being born in Springfield. It is not clear if the couple lived in Springfield for long, but by 1675 they were back in Windsor with their two children, Nathaniel and Mary. Nathaniel Sr. is not listed among those who moved to Simsbury immediately following the war, but his older brother Joshua is listed, and his mother and step-father James Eno, did move to "Scotland", the section of Simsbury east of the ridge, in 1679. It is possible they lived with the Enos briefly, while renting land at Salmon Brook or they could have began building a homestead at Salmon Brook and that the record of Nathaniel's 1677,'78 or '79 grant was among those burned; no one bothered to record it again since he received new grants, possably for the same land, as a result of the land divisions in 1680. He continued to pay taxes in Windsor through 1686, but only because he owned three acres of upland there, not because he was a resident. BIOGRAPHY: Nathaniels will is dated 7 Feb 1740/1, probated 5 Mar 1740/1(Manwaring 3:286). He devises various real estate in both Windsor and Simsbury to the four sons,Nathaniel, Jonathan, John and Benjamin. To five living daughters, Mary, Hester, Margaret, Catherine and Sarah the moveable estate. To the son, not named, of his deceased daughter Martha, 20 shillings, to be paid by sons Nathaniel, Jonathan and John, "to buy him a Bible." (This would be Daniel Hayes). To his wife, not named, testator leaves only 20 shillings "besides what I have already secured for her before marriage." Son Benjamin is names sole executor; Witnesses: Elias Slater, Ephraim Bewell, Timothy Woodbridge. BIOGRAPHY: Nathaniel was chosen Deputy to the General Court of Connecticut for Simsbury between 1703 and 1706; again between 1720 and 1722. Was a joint signer of an agreement with pastor of the church of Hop Mewdow 27 Jun 1687. Signed an offer to citizens of Salmonbrook and Low Meadow for exchange of parts of land to better fortify against Indians 4 Feb 1688.
