    "20. Thomas4 Upson (Thomas3, Stephen2, Thomas1). Born December 20, 1719, Waterbury. Died February 10, 1798, Wokott, and buried in Center Cemetery. …

    Thomas Upson, 3d, removed to Southington with his parents in 1732 and Timlow's History says that he probably joined the First Congregational Church under Pastor Chapman whose records are lost. In Farmingbury Parish, he settled one mile north from what is now Wolcott Green, on the 'Bound Line' and for a number of years his house and another house a half-mile away, were the only ones in that section. He was an organizer of the church in Farmingbury and was received by letter when the church opened for worship in 1773. He attended Town Meeting in Southington and on June 15, 1774, Thomas Upson, living in the southwest of the parish was appointed on the Committee for the Relief of Boston. On December 12, 1774, he was appointed to The Committee for Inspection. On December 15, 1775, he was appointed on one of the most drastic civilian committees of that date to give 'Licenses for the use of Tea … to such persons that are particularly named to be under absolute necessity for ye same." He was a patriot. In 1783, he bought from Joseph Atkins, Jr., one half of a grist-mill on Mad River, which was and had been for many years the only one in the vicinity. In 1796, Farmingbury Parish was set off from the towns of Waterbury and Southington and named Wolcott."
