  • Notes 

    • "Joseph moved from Bridgewater, Mass to Plainfield, CT in 1779 when the town was still part of Cummimgton. In 1789, a year of great scarcity, he suffered the loss of his house and nearly all his provisions by fire. His religious experience, dating from this calamity, was subject of the tract, "The Mountain Miller" by Wm. A. Hallock. It has been printed in French and German, as well as the English language, and its circulation has reached several hundred thousand copies. He srved as selectman in 1795 and was chosen deacon of the Plainfield church in 1803." From History of the Town of Plainfield, CT.
