About Elnathan Botsford

The Botfsord Family

Henry and Elizabeth Botsford had one son and 5 daughters. Their only son, Elnathan, was baptized by Rev. Peter Prudden in Milford Church on August 15, 1641. His mother had joined the church on October 4, 1640, according to church records, although his father did not join until July 25, 1644.

Elnathan married his first wife, Elizabeth Fletcher, on December 12, 1664. Elizabeth who was the daughter of John Fletcher, was baptized in October, 1645, and died circa 1666. Since Elnathan and Elizabeth's daughter, Elizabeth, was born on October 22, 1665, it can be assumed the mother may have died following childbirth.

Elnathan was married a second time to Hannah Baldwin on December 12, 1667. Hannah was the daughter of Timothy and Mary [Welles] Baldwin. Elnathan and Hannah Botsford were added to the church December 27, 1669, and Hannah was admitted to full communion January 15, 1670.
