About Capt. Isaac Phelps Capt. Isaac Phelps b. 20 Aug. 1638, Windsor, m. Ann Gaylord, 11 Mar. 1665 (1645-1689), dau. of William Gaylord, Jr. & Ann Porter (Gaylord 2.1). She d. 27 Sept. 1690. He d. 2 June 1725, Westfield.

He moved from Windsor to Westfield where he was town clerk, assessor, surveyor, town treasurer and Schoolmaster. It is said that the Westfield church records contain a long relation to the religious experiences of Isaac Phelps. At the age of 76 he was given the title of Captain, and in 1724, when he was 86, he was chosen Town Treasurer. It appears that Isaac may have been the only one of the family to be able to write, while his father, George, his uncle, William Phelps and his younger brothers used primitive "marks".
