About Nathaniel Badger

Nathaniel Badger was one of the first settlers of Union, CT bought land in 1734 (the year the town was incorporated) from Samuel Wells of Hartford (probably a land speculator). The lot was 60 acres on the north side of Bushmeadow.

From: The History of Union, Conn., by Charles Hammond He was a very remarkable man. His biography is a marvelous story of experience as a soldier in the Revolu- tion, as a student in Yale College, as an ingenious, versatile mechanic, as a teacher, as a minister of Blandford, Mass., and then as a most useful pioneer missionary in the West. Two of Nathaniel Badger's sons, Samuel and Edmund, set- tled at Windham. Thomas, son of Edmund of Windham, (according to Weaver), was perhaps, the most talented man ever born in Windham. He settled as a lawyer in North Carolina, and was the father of Hon. George Edmund Badger, LL. D., of Raleigh, N. C, Senator in Congress from North Carolina, and Secretary of the Navy. Hon. Samuel Badger of Philadelphia, was the fifth son of Samuel, of Windham. Nathaniel Badger of Union, was also the ancestor through his son Enoch of Union, and afterwards of Coventry, Conn., of Rev. Milton Badger, D. D., of New York, long Secretary of the Home Missionary Society; also of Rev. Norman Badger. Enoch Badger was for many years town clerk, and his records are made in a beautiful hand. Nathaniel Badger bought land in Union, in 1734, of Samuel Wells of Hartford. He must have lived at Union, for he conveyed land to his son Henry, in a deed dated April 6, 1741, in which he is said to be of Union and he speaks of his love and fatherly affection for his son Henry. This land was a lot of sixty acres on the north side of Bush- meadow. Half of the saw-mill on Bushmeadow brook was conveyed by the same deed to his son Henry.
