(Hist. of Norfolk, Conn.)
"Benjamin and Abigail Maltbie had eleven children, most of whom went West. His son Elon spent most of his life on this place" (see above) "and died there."
Daniel (5) son of Benjamin, wrote in 1880, to Mr. Nelson G. Adams, of Washington, D.C. "I had seven brothers and four sisters, Simeon, Benjamin, Abigail, Jacob, Ami, Hannah, Elon, Louis, Harrison, Julia, myself, and Jesse."
"Brother Jesse lives in Oberlin, Ohio. We two are the only members of my father's family that have not already gone before. The brothers have all lived to a good old age; the sisters all died young, three of them leaving small children. I was 87 years old day before yesterday." (April 6, 1880)
Note. Daniel mentions a child "Louis"--he is probably correct, but evidently he lived but a short time as I have no other reference to him.
According to the will of his father, Benjamin Maltby was in Branford in 1776. In 1781 he moved to Norfolk, Conn.
He bought land at Norfolk, June 12, 1781.
