ancestor of the Sheffield Massachusetts branch of the family

He was probably married at Catskill, New York or at least lived there at the time of the birth of his first child, Nicholas, who is recorded on the list of bapt. on Sept 1, 1734. He lived afterward at Copake and removed to Sheffield, Massachusetts in 1762. He was a farmer and settled on the Under Mountain road about three miles west of the village of Sheffield and directly under Mount Everett-the dome of the Taconics. He died at the age of 70; his wife died at the age of 83. They were long buried in a private cemetery near their original home, but in May 1879 (this is exactly 99 years after his burial), they were removed with others of the family to the village cemetery at Sheffield, where a monument was erected by some of their descendants.
