    TOMPKINS, JOHN, Salem 1637, freem. 18 May 1642, by w. wh. I guess
to be named Margaret, had Hannah, bapt. 10 Feb. 1639, b. some mos.

was propound. for freem. sold land in 1673, and prob. liv. at East Chester.
MICAH, or MICHAEL, Wethersfield, rem. to Milford 1639, and
Lambert says he d. 1649; but of that I find cause to doubt, for in Trumbull's
Col. Rec. II. 513, may be seen verificat. in 1661 and 5 by Michael
T. of Milford, wh. must be thot. the same person, as only one with this
prefix is ment. for a long course of yrs. He rem. with a great comp. of
friends to New Jersey, 1666, and July 1667 bot. large tract from Ind.
on the Passaic riv. where now is the city of Newark. See Whitehead,

may be the same wh. was of East Chester sev. yrs. bef. but for perman.
liv. at N. where by w. Elizabeth he had Nathaniel, b. 31 Dec. 1676, perhaps
d. very soon; Mary, 16 Sept. 1677, d. young; Priscilla, 24 May 1679;
Samuel, 11 May 1681; and Mary, again, 20 Oct. 1685. RALPH, Dorchester,

1666, as his inv. is of 12 Nov. of that yr. SAMUEL, Duxbury 1640, had
