"Isaac Sheldon of Windsor, Conn., and of Northampton, Mass., was born about 1629 (according to his deposition of 1679, quoted in part above), a date which agrees with the supposed date of the birth of Isaac Sheldon, son of Ralph and Barbara (Stone) Sheldon of Ashford, in the parish of Bakewell, co. Derby, England, and died as Northampton, Mass., 27 July 1708, aged 78 years. He married first, in 1653, Mary Woodford, who was born about 1636 and died at Northampton 17 Apr. 1684, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Blott) Woodford of Hartford, Conn., and Northampton, Mass.; and secondly, in 1686, Mrs. Mehitable (Gunn) Ensign, who was born as Windsor, Conn., 28 July 1644 and died at Northampton, Mass., 30 Jan. 1720/1, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Gunn and formerly wife of David Ensign of Hartford, Conn.

…shortly before 13 Sept. 1652, when the order quoted above was passed at a meeting of the townsmen of Windsor, Isaac Sheldon bought of John Stiles a house and three-acre lot in Windsor. In 1656 he moved from Windsor to Northampton, Mass., which was thenceforth his home. In his will, dated 21 June 1706 and proved 1 Sept. 1708, he named his wife Mehitable, his sons Isaac, John, Thomas, Joseph, Samuel, Ebenezer, and Jonathan Sheldon and his daughters Mary Bridgeman, Ruth Strong, Thankful Edwards, Mindwell Lyman, Hannah Chapin (Hampshire Probate Records, vol. 3, page 188)"[1]
