    James(1) Pinneo, formerly Jacques Pineau, born circa 1667 Lyons, France, and died prior to Oct. 10, 1727, Lebanon, CT, married May 9, 1706, at Bristol, RI, Dorothy Babcock, daughter of Return & Sarah (Denison) Babcock, as her first husband. … According to family tradition, as recorded in Rev. Addison Pinneo Foster's Pinneo Genealogy, Jacques and his lifelong friend Jean Soulard (John Sullard) fled from the king's men when interrupted at a prayer meeting, hid in a cave for three days, and made their way to England. Near the turn of the century they took passage to America and landed at Plymouth, Mass., becoming indentured servants for it was common then for the captain of the ship to sell the indentures of those passengers unable to pay for their passage. However, for some extraordinary deed or service they were released after just one year. They went to Bristol, RI, and then removed to Lebanon Crank (now Columbia), CT, where they both established homes and raised families. Letters of administration of James Pinneo's estate were granted Oct. 10, 1727.
