  • Notes 
    • Genealogy and Ecclesiastical History of Farmington, Connecticut, page 129:

      "The following persons "owned the covenant" previous to the organization of the church, and although not embraced in the list of Dr. Smalley's "half-way covenant" members, yet are inserted here, and it is thought with propriety, under this note.

      XXVIII. "ELIAS HART," owned the covenant Sept. 15th, 1754, before Rev. Joshua Belden, of Newington, officiating in New Britain. He b. Feb. 25th, 1735-6, to (No. 51) and his wife, Ann (Norton,) m. Oct. 17th, 1753, (No. XXIX.) He lived in and owned one-sixth part of his father's house, (now that of Widow Henry Williams, in fourth district.) He died 1756; the inventory of his estate was 11s., taken Jan. 14th, 1757, by Judah Wright and Isaac Lee. Administrators, the Widow Hope, and John Judd.

      XXIX. "Wife of Elias Hart," owned the covenant Sept. 15th, 1754; her maiden name Hope Whaples, of Newington; m. Oct. 17th, 1753, (No. XXVIII,) who died 1756, when she m. second, Aug. 18th,1760, Josiah Wright, jun. They soon after removed to Williamstown, Mass., and 1794, she deeded all her interest to her first husband's estate in Berlin to Elijah Hart, jun., for
      CHILDREN OF ELIAS HART AND HOPE, HIS WIFE.
      1. Jacob, b. May 2d, 1754.
      2. Rose, b. Jan. 8th, 1756, and Feb. 8th, 1758, Nehemiah Gates, of Middletown, was appointed her guardian, by Probate Court of Hartford."

      This document appears to refer to the Josiah Wright, Jr. (son of Josiah and Abigail (Boardman) Wright) born June 2, 1738 and NOT the Josiah Wright (son of David and Mary (Belden) Wright) born February 19 1723/24 who was married to Sarah Bronson during that time.
