About Micah Mudge


Despite what the “Mudge Genealogy” states, it seems more likely Micah & Moses Mudge were Jarvis’ children by an earlier wife. Rebecca is described as an “aged woman” at her arrest in 1663.

Nathaniel Greensmith married Rebecca, the widow of Jarvis Mudge, abt 1654 in Hartford. The two of them were found guilty of familiarity with Satan and executed 25 Jan 1662/3. Court records show that their estate was to pay debts and "to dispose of the 2 daughters, wth advice of the Assistants in Hartford." These daughters were named in the inventory as Hannah and Sarah Elsen. The fact that the Mudge boys were not mentioned makes it clear that they were not biological children of Rebecca, that she and Mudge, and she and Greensmith, had no living children when they were executed.



After the death of his father, in 1653, his [step] mother removed from New London to Wcthersfield, Conn., where they lived, and where, probably, the mother died. The first record of him appears on the town books of Northampton, Mass., where he marries Mary Alexander, Sept. 23, 1670. Northampton was settled in 1654, and George Alexander, the father of Mary, was one of the original proprietors. Here Micah Mudge resided, and acted as surveyor, and appears to have been one of the original proprietors of Northfield, Mass., the settlement of which was attended with great difficulties, as the Indians burnt the village and drove off the settlers in 1675. He returned with others afterwards, as appears from an order from the General Court, dated Boston, May 24, 1682,* and became an actual settler.
He removed to Lebanon, Conn., and was one of the early settlers of that town prior to 1698,* where he also served as a surveyor, and assisted in laying out the town.
Micah Mudge was one of nine persons who organized the First Congregational Church in Lebanon, Nov. 27, 1700.
