Several local histories from the Connecticut valley contain notices of this family. The ones I have chiefly used are Lucius Barnes Barbour, Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1977), 283; Lucius M. Boltwood, “Genealogies of Hadley Families,” in Sylvester Judd, History of Hadley (Springfield, Mass.: H. R. Huntting & Co., 1905), 59; and James M. Crafts, History of the Town of Whately (Orange, Mass.: D. L. Crandall, 1900), 474-5. For records of the family in England and the identification of the immigrant’s wife, see Leslie Mahler, The English Origin of Thomas¹ and Sarah (Scott) Grave(s) of Hartford, Connecticut, and Hadley, Massachusetts, American Genealogist 82 (2007): 107-10.
