About Hon. John Moffatt

From http://www.moffattladd.org/historypeople/themoffatts.html

When John Moffatt (1691-1786) planned the house that his son Samuel and his new bride would occupy, he hoped to create a grand statement of the family's wealth, position, and sophistication. At the age of 70, John Moffatt could look back upon a successful mercantile career He came to America as a ship captain engaged in the timber trade; about 1724 he married a young woman of means named Katharine Cutt (1700-1769), and through trade and land speculation rose to become one of the wealthiest men in the colony Of their five children, four survived--three daughters and one son. In young Samuel rested all of his father's hopes for the future.
