About Samuel Griswold

Info from: The book titled, "Several ancestral lines of Moses Hyde and his wife Sara Dana,... married Conn., Jue 5, 1757: with a full genealogical history of their descendants...the nineteenth century, coverin three hundred years...", by Harriette Hyde, Wells, 1904.

On page10 this book states,

"18. SAMUEL, b. Sept., 1665, m. Susannah, dau. of the first Christopher Huntington, Dec. 10, 1685.

Miss Calkins says: 'Samuel Griswold became a married man at the age of twenty, following his sisters in the flowing stream of youthful connections. Young people in those days, scarcely waiting to reach maturity, chose their partners and marched on with rapid and joyous steps to the temple of Hymen.' The wedding of Samuel and Susannah took place on her 17th birthday. He d. Dec. 9, 1740.

His gravestone bears the following epitaph:

    "Here lies interred ye Remains of Capt. Samuel Griswold the first Captain of the 2nd Company of train bands in Norwich.  He was born in Norwich Septr 1665 and died on ye 9th day of December 1740 in the 76th year of his age."

He may have died in Norwich, Conn.


I need to print more pages from this book as it is not clear if he is the son of Francis Griswold under "The Ancestral lines of Sarah Dana. GRISWOLD LINE."
