GEORGE ORVIS ~ (From "The Orvis Family in America" by Waitstill Orvis)

Married in 1652 at Farmington, Connecticut, Elizabeth, widow of David Carpenter, who had died January 22, 1650 or 1651.

George and Elizabeth had six children, three boys and three girls. His wife Elizabeth, joined the Church and her three children by her first husband and George's children were all Baptized in Farmington. (See Church records of that town, Vol. 12, page 34.) For other authentic information concerning George and his family, see Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, Vol. 4, page 317. George died April 27, 1664, the year that New York was conquered from the Dutch and the year of the great plague of London, England. His widow married Richard Brownson, Brunson or Bronson, as various spellings are given by the different authorities.

Richard Brunson was a carpenter as well as a farmer; at least he left a full set of carpenter tools at his death in 1687. He was a widower with several children when he married Elizabeth, the widow of George and David. She certainly led a strenuous life, what with the three children of David (Elizabeth Carpenter born 1644, David Carpenter born 1647 and Mary Carpenter, baptized August, 1650, the six children of George and those of Richard. Nine times a natural mother and foster-mother to several others.
