BIRTH: Some records give Windsor, Conn as birthplace, however the will of Bygod

Eggleston indicates his son Joseph had left Windsor before 1674, therefore

Joseph's son Joseph could not have been born there. Records of Orson H.

Eggleston have Mr. Eggleston born abt 1700 of New York, his relationship 3rd

great grandson. Donald Eggleston has Joseph born before 1680 probably in Rhode

Island. Archive record has birth of all children in this family in North

Stonington. Stonington was divided in 1717 to form North Stonington.

MARRIAGE: Evidence of Joseph's marriage originated with a probate record for

Gershom Mott who left a legacy to Joseph Eaglestone in 1720.(North Kingstown

Probate records vol 6 p. 15 LDS film 0930972)[E61]This original record does not

indicate the relationship between Gershom Mott and Joseph Egglestone. Rhode

Island Vital Records Vol. 5 Washington County Marriage from Probate Records p.

126 and p.237 [E4], lists a marriage of Joseph Eggleston to Miss Mott, daughter

of Gershom and Mary based on that probate record. (Austin's Genealogical

Dictionary of Rhode Island p. 347 [974.5 D26a] also lists Joseph as recipient o

a legacy from the will of Gershom Mott.) [E59]
