About James Babcock, Jr.

BABCOCK AND ALLIED FAMILIES, by M.M. Lewis, Brooklyn, New York. page 11.

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nanc/babcock/aqwg06.htm

James Babcock, Jr.-4 was born in Westerly RI, Dec. 23, 1688, and died in Stonington, now North Stonington, CT, April 9, 1731. He and his wife settled upon a farm in that part of Stonington, which is now Pendleton Hill, land which was owned by his father and was later found to be partly in Stonington and partly in Voluntown, and much of which was held in the family for more than a hundred and fifty years. James and his wife joined Stonington Church (Congregational), Rev. James Noyes, pastor, Aug. 8, 1708, and left with others to join the North Stonington Church in 1727. He was originally buried on the farm, but in the fall of 1900, Colonel Andrew J. Babcock of Springfield, Illinois, and Stephen Babcock, compiler of the "Babcock Genealogy," published in 1903, caused the graves of James and his wife, and their sons, Oliver and Timothy, and their wives to be removed to a well-kept cemetery near the Pendleton Hill meeting house.

James Babcock, Jr.-4, married in Milton, Mass, June 12, 1706, Sarah Vose, who was born in Milton, August 30, 1684, and died in North Stonington, CT, Dec. 25, 1758, daughter of Edward and Abigail Vose. Edward Vose was born in England in 1636, and died in Milton, MA. Abigail, mother of Sarah Vose, died in Milton, May 18, 1712, granddaughter of Robert Vose, born in Lancaster England about 1599, who came to America with his three sons, Edward, Thomas and Henry, and brought land in Milton MA, July 13, 1654.
