Early Families of Milford, Connecticut by Susan Emma Woodruff Abbott page 219.

From England to Massachusetts Bay Colony 1631, one of 44 original planters at Milford, Conn., 1639, married in 1640 the daughter of James Pruden. No record of his marriage has been discovered, but land records show she was the daughter of James, and the wording of Coley's will shows that her name was Anne. Coley died between 22 Mar. 1677/78, date of will, and 26 Sep. 1684, when an inventory of his estate was taken. Anne died 3 Oct. 1689. Their daughter, Abilene, b. 12 Mar. 1642/3, married 22 July 1664 Japhet Chapin of Springfield, Mass., and died 17 Nov. 1710. (NEB genealogy)
