About Caleb Blood, Jr.

The following was found by Marie Riding Israelsen, Descendant of Almer Bingley Cox, a few years ago.

   16 Mar 1787
   Groton Caution Allowed:
   The Selectmen of the Town of Groton are allowed to enter their caution against Caleb Blood the third and Hepzibah with three children viz: Benjamin, Charles, & Charlotte who came last from Windsor in the County of Windsor and the State of (New) Vermont, so called, the said Selectmen refusing to admit them as inhabitants of their Town they having been warned to depart, as by Warrant and return thereon, on file.
 # ed out and Vermont written. It appears that 'New' should ha
   (The custom of the day was for each family to support itself, if at all possible, so as not to draw on the welfare of the local town. The proof of the financial status of a man or family was the word of a local citizen. When a man without friends or family settled in a town, he had no proof of his financial status. Therefore, the family was 'warned out' by the local town leaders. Those 'warnings' while seemingly, to present day eyes, a rude welcoming have proven to be one of the best primary documents in which to find those who moved.)
   (Town officials interrogated people because they were living as "transients" within the town. "Transient" did not indicate a person's brief residence in a town; rather, this legal term indicated that a resident had not acquired a legal settlement in the town by purchasing enough real estate to qualify as a "freeholder." Since most poor people could not afford to buy land, they were considered "transients" by the authorities in any town other than their home town. These transient people were not bound servants or slaves; they were free, laboring persons who maintained their own households or paid board in one place while they went out to work elsewhere.
   Councilmen "examined" these transient people to determine where they were legal inhabitants, so that they could be sent back to their home towns in time of need. English law made each town responsible for the support of its poor inhabitants; but the poor had to be living within their home towns to receive that support. Since many poor people moved to other towns in search of work or a more congenial community, town leaders stayed busy sending those in desperate need back to their home towns. The councilmen "warned out" the transient poor who were capable of leaving on their own.)
   If we assume the children were listed in order of birth, and the marriage was 1781, then the approxomate dates of birth are as entered in the family tree. The information below applies to infomation available before this find.
   Death date also given: Between 1797 and 1799
   The information on the children of Caleb Blood III and Hepzibah Jewett is obtained by family tradition, and from people who were at least one generation away from those listed on the sheet.
   It appears that Euphrasia Cox Day obtained what information she could from the memories of Orville Sutherland Cox and his children (her brothers and sisters) on this family. They remembered names of aunts and uncles as best they could, with dates as nearly as they could figure them out, This information was submitted for the temple work to be completed.
   The genealogists of today can find no record of any children except Lucinda Blood in vital statistics or any other place available. Record has been found of a marriage of Charles Blood to Clarissa Baker, daughter of Benjamin Baker and Abigail Wade. From this we know that "Aunt" Clarissa married "Uncle" Charles, and Clarissa was the in-law.
   It has been shown quite conclusively that Caleb Blood III was not the son of Caleb Blood II, as previous records have indicated. There is no proof that he is the son of William Blood and Lucy Fletcher, as shown on this sheet.
   With definite proof not available, this sheet has been included to show the best of the current theories on this family.
   After the divorce he married Molley, 10 yrs younger.}}}
