Moses Cleveland -Find a grave.comBirth: Feb. 2, 1620Death: Jan. 8, 1702 Moses or Moyses CLEVELAND or CLEAVELAND, born about 1621 at Ipswich, Suffolk England, is widely considered to be the first of the "Northern Line" of the Cleveland family to immigrate to America from England, and the ancestor of many, perhaps most people with the surname Cleveland in the United States. The American Biographical Dictionary by William Allen, D. D., 1857, p. 234, in an account of Moses Cleveland, says, "From him are doubtless descended all in this country who bear the name Cleaveland or Cleveland." Anyone researching the Cleveland family in the United States will soon come upon Moses Cleveland.

Moses Cleveland became an indentured apprentice to his future Father-in-Law Edwin Winn as housewright or master builder in London, England, from whence he immigrated in 1635 to Massachusetts. Soon after attaining his majority, he was made a freeman at Woburn, Massachusetts. He married, September 26, 1648, Ann Winn, born about 1626, daughter of Edward and Joanna Winn. He was appointed a Tithingman, along with his son Aaron Cleveland, in 1680. He attained considerable prominence in Woburn, and was admitted to full communion with the first church of Charlestown, Massachusetts, in 1692. He continued to reside in Woburn until his death, January 9, 1701 or 1702.

Moses Cleveland was probably buried in the First Burying Ground near his son Aaron Cleveland in Woburn, Massachusetts, although his exact plot location is not known, as if he ever had a grave marker, it has been long lost or covered with earth.

There is an ongoing debate about whether his name is spelled Cleaveland or Cleveland, and has been represented in both spellings. One piece of evidence comes from Moses' own hand by way of a signature as a witness to a legal document by Thomas Dutton dated December 8, 1682 where he signed his name "Moses Cleveland".

Biography

Ann Winn, the daughter of Edward and Joanna Winn, married Moses Cleveland of Woburn, Massachusetts on September 26, 1648. They had eleven children, all born in Woburn. She was probably born in England. The date of her death does not appear in the town records.[1]

Ann Winn, the wife of Moses Cleveland, was born in 1626 and died in 1682. She married Moses Cleveland (1622-1702) and was the mother of Moses Cleveland (1651-1717). "Ann Winn Cleveland predeceased her husband, Moses, while they were living in Woburn, Massachusetts. The Cleveland monument at Southold shows a record of the family but it is not a list of all the people buried there. It is a cenotaph." Her memorial is in the Old Burying Ground of First Presbyterian Church, Southold, Suffolk County, New York. [2]
