    Notes 
    • In 1797, when scarcely fifteen years old, he was admitted into the freshman
      class in Yale College. He was a reputable scholar but owing to a growing
      disability that incapacitated him for study and threatened a speedy termination
      of his life he returned home in the second term of his senior year and though
      invited by the faculty to be present with his class at their examination for
      degrees, he chose not to avail himself of the opportunity and in consequence
      was never enrolled with them as graduate. Soon after his return he engaged
      himself as a clerk to Mr Richards, a merchant in Farmington, with whom he later
      became a partner and in 1803 entered into business as a merchant with his
      younger brother as a partner.
      He was also a justice of the peace, selectman, town clerk, representative of
      the town in the Legislature, teacher and instructor of the choir of singers,
      member of Missionary, Temperance, Anti-Masonic, and Anti-Slavery Societies and
      second vice president of Hartford County Agricultural Society. He was a man
      distinguished for his public spirit, of singular benevolence, great practical
      wisdom, remarkable firmness, and consistent and steadfast piety. The will of
      his first wife dated 2 March 1837 named him as executor: inventory $4, 508.50.
      His own will, dated 22 March 1837 was provrd 3 March 1841; inventory $7,231.97.
      The house they occupied was inherited by his first wife from her father. He
      joined the church in 1824, his first wife in 1816 and his second wife in 1838,
