His will of 8 Mar. pro. 27 of same, ment. w. and the six ch. all under 21 yrs. made Nathaniel excor. with overseers.

MITCHELL, MATTHEW, Charlestown, came 1635, with Rev. Richard Mather, in the James, of Bristol, bring. w. and ch. David, and Jonathan, perhaps more, rem. to Concord, and soon to Springfield, there sign. compact with Pynchon and others in May 1636, soon aft. to Saybrook for short time, where, in the Pequot war, he was protect. by Lyon Gardiner, but he says the Ind. took one of the "old man. and roasted him alive." He was in 1639 at Wethersfield a short time, and next yr. made their town clk. but soon went to Stamford, and in 1643, with Rev. Richard Denton, to Hempstead, L. I. perhaps back again, soon to Stamford, there d. in 1645. He was rep. in 1637, but not, as Mather makes him, one of the Assist. of the Col. that yr.

MOREY, GEORGE, Duxbury 1640, d. next yr. may be the passeng. 1635, from London, aged 23, by the Truelove. By the Col. Ct. Jan. 1641, this strange order was pass. that Thomas Roberts of Duxbury "shall lodge no more with George M. a diseased person." GEORGE, Bristol, m. 21 Dec. 1683, Hannah Lewis, had John, b. 3 Oct. 1684; Mary, 24 Mar. 1688; Sarah, 4 Mar. 1691; Hannah, 18 May 1694; George, 31 Aug. 1696; all bapt. 13 June 1697; Martha, 12 Mar. bapt. 23 Apr. 1699; Abigail, 27 Feb. bapt. 21 June 1702; Benjamin, 18 Apr. bapt. 17 June 1705; and Thomas, 1 Jan. bapt. 20 Mar. 1709.

MORRIS, EDWARD, Roxbury, m. 29 Nov. 1655, Grace Burr, but; in Boston rec. as cop. in Geneal. Reg. XI. 201, the name is giv. Bett, wh. seems less likely to be correct surname, had Isaac, b. 16 Sept. 1656, bapt. 19 Sept. 1658; Edward, bapt. 13 Mar. 1659; Grace, 17 Feb. 1661; Ebenezer, b. 14, bapt. 17 Apr. 1664, Elizabeth bapt. 26 Mar. 1666; Margaret, 27 Sept. 1668; Samuel, 9 Apr. 1671; and Martha, 3 Jan. 1675; was rep. 1678 and to 1686. His wid. Grace d. 6 June 1705, says the rec. but his own dec. is not ment. there. He had rem. to New Roxbury, since call. Woodstock, and was d. 27 Jan. 1692, when admin. on his est. was gr. Grace, his d. m. 7 Mar. 1683, Benjamin Child; and Elizabeth m. 9 May 1685, Joshua Child; and Margaret m. 4 Apr. 1689, John Johnson.

MORSE, SAMUEL, Dedham, f. of Daniel, came in the Increase, from London, 1635, aged 50, with w. Elizabeth 48, and s. Joseph, bef. ment. but how the other childr. came or when, is uncert.; freem. 8 Oct. 1640, says the Geneal. 20 June 1654; but either that date or one of his will is wrong, as pub. in Geneal. Reg. V. 299, where the test. is 2 Dec. 1654. Mr. Morse assures me, the true d. is 5 Dec. I presume the d. of his s. Joseph was intend. for June. Farmer says he d. 3 days aft. and agrees with town rec. therein. It gives w. Elizabeth all his est. but aft. her life to be div. among ch. John, Daniel, Mary, w. of Samuel Bullen, beside Ann, wid. of Joseph, for his childr. equal. and no more; that I doubt the other names giv. in the Geneal. may not be all correct, especially as Abigail is said, therein, to m. Daniel Fisher, the speaker, whose w. was, I think, Abigail, d. of Thomas Marrett. Geneal. Reg. IX. 141, gives the inv. by wid. Elizabeth 10 Jan 1655. Perhaps the dates are confus. by the numerals for mos. and days in one of the transact. being interchang. The wid. d. 20 June 1665.

OLCOTT, SAMUEL, Hartford, s. of Thomas. freem. 1664, m. Sarah, d. of George Stocking, d. Mar. 1704, in his will of 13th of that mo. pro. 12 Apr. foll. names ch. Thomas George, Sarah, Mary, and Elizabeth. THOMAS, Hartford, an orig. propr. whose lot in 1640, is exhibit. on the ground plan with his name writ. Alcock, and oft. it appears Alcot was a merch. who d. late in 1654 or early in 1655, his inv. of large est. for that day being of 13 Feb.; had Thomas; Samuel; Elizabeth bapt. 7 Dec. 1645; John, 3 Feb. 1650; and Hannah. His will was of 1653, as in a Vol. of Hartford rec. late. by the happy dilig. of Mr. Hoadley recover. aft. many yrs. loss, is seen; and the wid. Abigail made her will 12 Jan. and d. 26 May 1693, aged 78. Hannah d. perhaps young certain. bef. her mo. Elizabeth m. Timothy Hyde of Wethersfield.

OLMSTED, JAMES, Cambridge, came to Boston 16 Sept. 1632, in the Lion, from London, with two ch. and others, was rec. as freem. 6 Nov. foll. constable some yrs. at C. but with earliest sett. to Hartford 1636, of wh. he was an orig. propr. with large lots of ld. and d. 1640. His will, of 28 Sept. of that yr. with inv. show. comfortab. prop. is found in Trumbull's Coll. Rec. I. 446-9. It names only two ch. Nicholas, and Nehemiah; but niece Rebecca O. wh. he brot. over, has also a small provis. and his kinsmen Richard, and John O. perhaps brs. of Rebecca, by the overseers of his will, with concur. of the s. rec. too, a small portion of the est. Yet prob. it was their own prop. held by him in tr. and they may have come with her. It also provides for his serv. William Corbee or Corby. NICHOLAS, Hartford, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. serv. 1637 in the Pequot war, aft. showing his wild oats, bec. a good citizen, freem. 1669, ens. and rep. 1672 and 3, capt. in 1675, and d. 31 Aug. 1684. He had early m. bef. is f.'s will of 28 Sept. 1640, a d. of Joseph Loomis of Windsor, had Sarah; Mary or Mabel, b. 20 Nov. 1646; Rebecca, Mar. 1648; John, 3 Feb. 1650; and left s.

In his will, he names this w. and s.-in-law John Woods, h. of his d. Mary, and gr. s. John, his s. of that name being some yrs. d. and this gr. s. made one of the excors. The will of his wid. 1 Nov. 1672, pro. eleven yrs. after, names her first h.'s childr. John, Thomas, and William Chandler, Hannah, w. of George Abbot, and Sarah, w. of William Cleaves.
