William Maltbie was appointed Admin. of the will of his brother John (5) Maltbie, who d. at Fairfield, Ct., 8 Jan. 1809. Mrs. Anna Gray Taylor of Fairfield Hist. Society writes me: " I have a letter written by William Maltbie from Savannah, June 4, 1814, to a Bucking- ham Sherwood, who was a well-known merchant of Fairfield. Maltbie is down South, trying to sell a cargo of cotton. He may have to 'buy a poney or contrive some other way to get on from Augusta---'
There were many Sherwood letters in an old trunk in my father's attic."

I can find no "Dr. Philo Hall" in the "Hall Genealogy." As Gov. Lyman Hall was Governor of Georgia, it may be Dr. Philo connects with this family. He signed the Declaration of Independence and died in 1790. (Her brother, William Maltbie, Lawrenceville, Ga., named a son "William Hall Maltbie.")
