On Oct. 11, 1715, Nathaniel with his brother Joseph bought 65 acres of land in Rehoboth for £260, of Stephen Hunt; deed signed by Stephen and Damaris his wife.Feb. 13, 1716, Joseph Bosworth, yeoman, and Nathaniel Bos­worth, "House Carpenter," mortgaged this land to the "Committee of five Commissioners appointed by the Great and General Court" for "emitting the sum of One Hundred Thousand pounds," for £130. This was to be paid in annual installments of £6.10s. Before the payments were finished Nathaniel on Apr. 14, 1725, sold his share to Joseph, so the latter completed the payments and received the discharged mortgage in 1731. (Taunton Deeds, 10-549)Apr. 13, 1725, Nathaniel's brother Joseph, in consideration of an agreement made between them relating to the estate of "our Father Joseph Bosworth late of said Rehoboth Deceased," deeded twelve acres of land "scituate at the south end of the farm whereon I now dwell in the Township of Rehoboth . . . bounded southerly by Ebenezer Peck's land, Easterly by a highway, northerly by my own Land and westerly by a highway." On Apr. 14, 1725, the same day that Nathaniel sold his brother his half of the 65 acres, he also sold him the above mentioned twelve acres. This deed, which was witnessed by Israel and Stephen Peck, is in the possession of Mrs. Carrie Bosworth Reed.
Feb. 12, 1727/8 Nathaniel sold five acres of swamp land to John Hill of Rehoboth. (Taunton Deeds, Bk. 18, p. 67). On the Old Proprietary Records of Rehoboth (Bk. 3, p. 62 [76]) is given "The Records of the lands of Joseph and Nathaniel Bozworth, dated, Apr. 3, 1735.

(New Milford Deeds 6-436). In Book 5, page 429 of New Milford records is found the following: "Know all men by these presents that I Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth in the County of Bristol in New England Housewright Do hereby con­stitute and appoint Nathaniel Bozworth Blacksmith and William Boz­worth Clothworker Both of New Milford in the County of New Haven and Colony of Connecticut to be my true and sufficient and Lawful attorneys and in my name and in my stead in all causes Rate personal or mixt moued or to be moued for me or against me, to appear plead and pursue to finial judgment & execution and in an especial manner to take care of my Right of Land Lying in New Milford North Purchase to see that there be no tres­pass committed thereon and if there hath any person or persons that Here­tofore hath commited or shall hereafter commit any trespass thereon the same person or persons to persue and proceed against according to law" etc. "In witness whereof I have Hereunto set my hand and seal the ninth day of June In the year of our Lord one Thousand seven hundred and forty six and in ye nineteenth year of his majusties Reign"

Mar. 14, 1749 before a "Freeholders Court" at New Mil­ford, Mr. Edward Cogswell of New Milford complained that the bounds between his land and the land of Nathaniel Bos­worth of Rehoboth, Mass. was "Lost & unknown said Land lying in New Milford North Purchase sd. Land being ye 33d and 34th Lots In number and Requiring the Benefits of the Law In that Case." Whereupon a committee of three free­holders was appointed to decide upon the bounds and reported that "a heap of stones Lying the East side of Aspotuck River a few rods Eastward from sd. River northwestward from the aforesd Cogswells house . . . made for the Divid­ing bounds." On Sept. 5, 1751, in order to settle the above mentioned bounds, Edward Cogswell gives Quit claim deed to "Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth, Mass., to a "Triangular piece of Land in the South Teer of Lotts in New Milford North Purchase 1st Division," etc. Sept. 6,. 1751, Edward Cogswell "in consideration of one Certain Warrantee Deed to me well Executed Dated Even herewith by Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth . . . of ye North part of ye 34th Lott of Land in the South Teer in ye first Division in New Milford North Purchase . . . Do for myself . . Confirm unto ye sd Nathaniel Bozworth . . all that part of the 33d Lott of Land in ye South Teer in ye first Division in sd New Mil­ford North Purchase afore sd that Lyes South of ye following Lines" etc. On the same date Nathaniel deeded to Edward Cogswell all the land lying "North" of the above line, thus settling the boundaries of their lands. Also on the same date "Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth, Mass. and Nathaniel Bozworth junr. of New Milford" for £320, "old Tenor" deeds to Edw. Cogswell of Preston, New London County, Conn. land in the New Milford North Purchase. (New Milford Deeds, Bk. 6, pp. 529, 605, 618)

Sept. 20, 1751, "Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth for the Love, Goodwill and affection which I have and bare to my well beloved son Nathaniel Boz­worth of New Milford," deeds land in New Milford North Purchase, a part of Lot 34, 1st Division, containing 50 acres; bounds given in which the land of Paul Welch Jun. is mentioned; "And I also Give and Confirm unto him . . . one full Quarter part of the privilege of a Certain place in the aforesd River [East Aspetuck] for Erecting a Saw Mill where the first small Brook Empties into said River North of the above said Granted Land with Sufficient Land & other Conveniences of Daming or turning the Water for the use of said Mill with a Convenient way to pass & repass from the Highway thereunto." (New Milford Deeds 11-682) On the same date "Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth" deeds to son William of New Milford for "ye Love good will & affection which I have and do bear to my well beloved son William Bozworth of New Milford" land in New Milford, a part of the 33rd and 34th lots in the North Purchase in the 1st Division, 50 acres. The bounds given "Beginning at a stake and a heap of stones by ye East side of ye Highway a Little Northward from Stephen Bozworths Dwelling House" etc. one of the bounds being East Aspetuck river, "there will be contained in ye whole 50 acres Exclusive of the High­way that Runs through ye same always Reserving to myself During my Natural Life one half of ye privilege in sd stream for building a Mill with Convenient ways to pass to sd Mill & my other Land." (New Milford Deeds, 6-627)

Sept. 24, 1751, "Nathaniel Bozworth of Rehoboth for the Love & Goodwill which I have to my son Stephen Bozworth of New Milford" deeds certain parcels of land in the New Milford North Purchase in the 33rd and 34th lots; in all 20 acres, bounds given; "Excepting and reserving one half privilege of the streams and land sufficient for a saw Mill and Dams if need be with a good cartway to and from said places and my other Lands to the Highway and for digging watercourses and carting gravel And timber to and from said places as aforesaid which it shall be thought most convenient for said Mill or Dams the aforesaid Stephen Bozworth and his heirs to have one fourth part thereof as aforesd." (New Milford Deeds, 8-106) Nothing further is found of Nathaniel on the Rehoboth; records except his death, and although the record is at Reho­both he is buried across the state line in Rumford, R.I. As we have seen he gave to his three sons his land in Connecticut and when they went there to settle, it appears that a sister went with them named Deborah and at New Milford married a man named William Buck for their children later called William Bosworth their uncle. This is another case of an unrecorded child, but as Nathaniel gave away his property in his life time and seems to have left no will, we get no help from that source. However the com­piler thinks the evidence that there was such a daughter, strong enough to warrant including her among the children.
NOTE: William Bosworth and two sons, also William Buck and family, removed in later years from Connecticut to Chemung, N.Y., where William Bosworth soon died. The History of Chemung County, N.Y., notes the fact that he was the first white man to die in the town, and adds that "he was an uncle of Elijah Buck." Elijah was a son of William Buck.

Stephen's land was in two pieces, 18 acres lying north of Nathaniel's, bounded with the river on the west and the highway on the east; also across the highway to the east were two acres on which his dwelling house stood. William's land was also in two pieces on each side the highway, north of Stephen's land, the two pieces containing 50 acres, bounded on the west by the river. So it seems that Nathaniel and William each had 50 acres while Stephen the youngest had only 20. However in addition to the land there were mill sites and water rights, and of these the father reserved one-half and gave Nathaniel Jr. one-quarter and Stephen one-quarter.

Residence: New Milford BET 1745 AND 1779 New Milford, Litchfield, CT
Note:
It is probable that William and his two brothers, Nathaniel and Stephen, went from Rehoboth to New Milford about 1744, a year before William's marriage. In 1746 his father, Nathaniel Bosworth of Rehoboth, appointed William and Nathaniel to represent him in all his business affairs in CT. At that time, New Milford was still a part of New Haven County.

He apparently lived in that portion of New Milford that was set off to help form the new town of Washington.

33 Michael Braun left a legacy

SALISBURY POST

Every town has a forefather. For Granite Quarry, Michael Braun not only helped build the town, he helped fill it up with people.

Braun, pronounced Brown and later spelled that way, immigrated to Philadelphia from Germany when he was 17 years old.

In the 1750s, he moved here with both slaves and indentured servants, his first wife, Margreta, and the first of his 11 children.

He began building his home, a massive stone building with walls nearly 2 feet thick and over 3,500 tons of hand-hewn granite stone. This home is known as the Old Stone House. It took Braun six to eight years to build it, finishing in 1766.

Braun served as a magistrate, operated a printing press in Salisbury and owned more than 3,000 acres at the time of his death.

He lived in the Old Stone House until he died in 1809 at the age of 83.

Revolutionary heroine

Legend has it that during the American Revolution, there was a young American soldier who was spying on a troop of Redcoats. The English spotted the American and started chasing him. Braun?s wife saw that the young soldier needed help as he came riding his horse across the hill toward her house with the British behind him. She quickly ran through the house, opening the doors that lead from front to back. Then she waved the American toward her. He rode his horse straight through the house and out the back across a creek.

When the British tried to follow, Mrs. Braun slammed the door, cutting off access. This gave the young American enough time to make his escape.

There are also sword marks on the door post of the house that supposedly came from a hand-to-hand battle during that same war.

There are small windows at the gable ends of the home that were said to be portholes that defenders inside could use to fire down on attackers.

The inscription over the door carries the name of Michael and Margreta Braun. The second line is either the first letters of his children?s names or, according to German scholars, the first letters of a German inscription that means ?with thanks to Christ, my task is complete.?

The family graveyard is across the street from the home. In the stone-walled enclosure is the original gravestone of Margreta Braun.

Michael Braun?s headstone was replaced by family descendants. Continental John, Michael?s son, fought in the Revolution and is also buried there.

Braun?s descendants kept the Old Stone House until it was sold in the early 1910s.

The house was eventually abandoned and began decaying in the woods.

Home saved

The Fisher-Brown family bought the home in the 1930s, but found that restoring it was more than they could handle.

In the late 1950s, rumor circulated that the house was to be torn down and crushed for road rock.

That is when the Rowan Museum stepped in and began a six-year restoration of the home. The house is recognized as the oldest German dwelling in the state.

The museum bought and dismantled several old buildings of the colonial period to use as pieces for the Old Stone House. Wooden floor planks, hand-blown glass, old hand-forged nails and hinges were used to make the restoration authentic.

Frank Horton, of Old Salem and The Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts, led the restoration work. Most of the furniture was donated by local people, and all of the pieces predate 1810.

34 George Ott and Mary Brown married 07 Sep 1840 by Issac V.D. Robinson, J.P (Eaton Courthouse, Preble County, OH) Book A 1808-1842 Mary Brown
 
35 George Ott was reared on a farm, and in 1840, was married to MARY BROWN whose parents were from North Carolina. To Mr. and Mrs. Ott (George and Mary Brown Ott) have been born ten children, as follows Sarah E., Mary A., John F., Matilda, Ellen, Hetta, Louisa J, Daniel P, Olive and Martha A. All are living except John F., who died in infancy. In 1842, Mr. Ott (George) came to Green Township, where his father (John) had purchased land. There were only about fourteen other families in the township at that time. No improvements had been made on Mr. Ott?s quarter section. He erected a small log cabin, and planted some corn, and then returned to Ohio. The same year he came to Indiana bring his family. Here they have labored, and affine farm of about seven hundred acres proves that their labor has not been in vain. This land, except 140 acres, has been given to their children. Mr. Ott (George) and wife (Mary Brown Ott) are members of the Christian Church. Mr. Ott (George) besides filling all the township offices, has been County Commissioner, serving his constituency with honesty and fidelity. Noble County cannot boast of a citizen of greater excellence or a man of truer nobility than George Ott. His heart and mind are filled with progressive ideas, which lead him to the commission of charitable deeds and to the performance of Christian duty.

38 John Cavert

--from History of Saratoga Co., NY 1609-1878 by Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvestor - 1878

In 1773 a number of Scotch-Irish families, who had fled or been banished from Great Britain for religious opinions held by them, became desirous of colonizing in some part of the new country, hoping to better their condition by so doing. They sent one of their number, John Cavert, to select a proper location for their new settlement. He came up the Hudson river to Albany, and from there went to Schenectady, where he struck off into the unbroken forest to the northward. After a little prospecting, he finally settled upon a portion of land near the present Ballston line as the best suited to his purposes, and stuck a willow stick he held in his hand into the ground to mark the spot. He then returned to New Jersey, and reported the success of his researches to the waiting and eager friends who welcomed his return. The following spring Thomas Sweetman - accompanied by his wife, Sarah, and four children, the youngest but two months old, and by his brother-in-law, David Maxwell - removed from Freehold, Monmouth Co., N.J., and came to Charlton (via Albany and Schenectady), arriving at their new home early in May. . . . .

John Cavert's farm was west of McKnight's and north of Maxwell's, and the homestead is now occupied by a grandson, David L. Cavert. On his return, in the spring of 1775, he found that the willow-cane he had stuck in the ground on his former visit had taken root, and was growing into a flourishing tree. In clearing the land care was taken to preserve this, a well was dug near by, and many times in after-years he was permitted to sit beneath its grateful shade while partaking of the cool and refreshing beverage furnished by "the old oaken bucket that hung in the well." He married a daughter of Thomas Sweetman while living in New Jersey, and they had a family of three children, - William, Michael, and Mary.

43 History and genealogy of the Eastman family of America: containing biographical sketches and genealogies of both males and females
By Guy Scoby Rix
Published by Press of I.C. Evans, 1901

Benjamin Eastman (Peter3, Joseph2, Roger1), born in Morristown, N. J., Jan., 1719; married in New Milford, Conn., Jan. 16, 1756, Mary Hitchcock. He died in Fair- field, Herkimer county, N. Y., April 1, 1814. She died in Arlington, Vt., in 1774, giving birth to a son, Abihue. He married 2d, Ruth , who died in Fairfield, N. Y. Mr. Eastman lived in New Milford, Conn., where the most of his children were born. He moved just before the Revolution to Arlington, Vt., and after the death of his wife followed one of his sons to Fairfield, N. Y., where he married his second wife.

; married Ruth Jenkins. We know but very little about him. He lived in New Fairfield, Conn. There are no church records of the church there prior to 1751, and of the eight male members at that date, the name of Azariah Eastman appears as one. The same records say the wife of Azariah Eastman was admitted a member by profession, Jan. 2, 1757. The same records say the widow Eastman died in 1777. This must have been the widow of Azariah, and of course if so he must have died first. The dates of baptisms will be found on the books of the church in New Fairfield. It is very likely his children were all born in New Fairfield.

By Guy Scoby Rix
Published by Press of I.C. Evans, 1901

Joseph Eastman (Roger1), born in Salisbury, Mass., Nov. 8, 1650 ; died April 4, 1692 ; married Mary Tilton, born Feb. 8, 1649. She was the daughter of Hon. Peter Tilton, of Hadley, Mass. After Joseph1s death his widow married Joseph Guernsey, with whom it is said she quarrelled. They removed to New Jersey. It is very likely she took her children with her. Joseph settled in Hadley, and probably did so on his marriage. There is a record of a Joseph Eastman, who was a soldier in King Philip1s war, and as no other Joseph Eastman was old enough to be a soldier in that war, this Joseph must be the one.

Peter Eastman3 (Joseph2, Roger1) born in Hadley, Mass., Jan. 20, 1786; married Nov. 28, 1708, Mehitable Root, daughter of Hezekiah and Mehitable (Frary) Root, of Deerfield, and granddaughter of Thomas Root, of Northampton, Mass. Peter Eastman probably settled in Suffield, Conn., at that time in Massachusetts, as we find in the records of that town the birth of five children.

From Suffield, Peter removed to New Jersey, probably on account of his mother going there, sometime between the birth of his son Hezekiah and son Benjamin. The earliest mention of him in New Jersey is in the deed mentioned below. It is very probable all his children, except the first five, were born in New Jersey, but no records of their birth can be found. He returned to Connecticut and located in New Fairfield in the thirties, as the proprietors records of Cornwall, show he bought land there in 1738, and he was called then "of New Fairfield." He sold the land in 1739, " all rights and title," so that it is evident he never lived there, although the history of that town says he " built the first house there and the first meeting of the proprietors was held at his house." The records say, however, that though this meeting was appointed at his house it was changed to another man1s.

We have no record of his death, but it is probable he died soon after the leasing of his last and only farm to his beloved son, Joseph.

No will or settlement of his estate has been found.

The records of this branch of the family have been so imperfectly kept that not much data concerning them can be obtained, consequently we have to rely on tradition. One is that he had twelve sons and some daughters. It is possible he had more than one wife, though we have no record of another.

The farthest back found of the Eastmans is of John Eastman, of Romsey, county Southampton, will dated September 24, 1602, proved October 22, 1602, to be buried in church of Romsey :

To son Roger Eastman all lands whatsoever in default to son John, also to Roger, 100 marks at 14, to be paid by my father Roger Eastman, to my son John 50 pounds at 14, to daughter Elizabeth and Margaret when 21 or married 40 pounds each. Ditto to child my wife now goith with, to servant Elizabeth Head 5 pounds. Residuary legate and executrix, wife Anne ; overseers, Roger Eastman, Michael Mackeall and Mathew Mundsy.

Witness : Walter Godfrey. Giles Newe. Thomas Stote.

The first one of the name in America was Roger Eastman1, born in Wales, England, in 1611, and died in Salisbury, Mass., December 16, 1694 ; married Sarah Smith (?), born in 1621, and died in Salisbury, Mass., March 11, 1697. They were both members of the church in Salisbury in 1694.

Roger Eastman came from Langford, county of Wilts, and sailed from Southampton in April, 1638, in the ship Confidence, John Jobson, master, bound for Massachusetts Bay Colony.

On the ship1s papers he was entered as a servant of John Saunders. It is believed that on account of the emigration laws, or for political reasons, his real rank was higher than appears.

Many traditions have been handed down, but it is believed that Roger Eastman was the sole ancestor of all the Eastmans in this country. The name has been, in some cases, spelled " Easman," even by members of the same family. No record of his marriage has been found or of his wife1s full name, and it is only by tradition that we suppose it to be " Smith." Roger Eastman received lands in the first division in Salisbury, in 1640-3. His minister1s tax in 1650 was 8s. 3d.

from Salisbury the tribe dispersed, but the major part settled in the southern towns of New Hampshire and the northern towns of Massachusetts.

The third generation, however, settled farther north, following up the Merrimack river, while others settled further south in Massachusetts and Connecticut and others in Maine. From these places they scattered over the United States and Canada.
