JOANNA AND EUNICE
With Joanna and Eunice, and with Hepsibath, discussed earlier, we enter a series of cousin marriages that makes tracing any one particular line difficult. Living in the same area as the Fay family in Connecticut, or in Brimfield, Massachusetts, were Munger, Day, and Bullen. The Vital Records of Brimfield and Sherborn, among others, record many of the births and marriages that connected these families.
   
Contrary to what Orlin says, it was Joanna who married Ephraim Munger, not Sarah; and it was Eunice, whose birth is not mentioned by Orlin, who married Samuel Day.
   
JOANNA
   
JOANNA FAY was born 20 July 1749, in Stafford, Tolland Co., Connecticut and died 5 August 1793, in Union.

She married Ephraim Munger on 27 May 1772 in Stafford. He was born 22 July 1749 in Brimfield, Hamden Co., Massachusetts, and died 21 April 1825 in Milan, Erie Co., Ohio.

In 1778, Ephraim Munger purchased land in Union CT from his father, Nathaniel Munger. The Munger family lived in the northwest part of Union town where Ephraim operated a brick yard. Union town lay just to the east of Stafford town. It is said Ephraim lived for awhile in Vermont; but records have not been found to substantiate this. He did move from Brimfield to Union, returned to Brimfield in 1787, and back to Union within two years. Near the end of the 1790s, Ephraim moved to Madison county, New York, and in 1815 went to Milan in Huron county (now Erie county), Ohio.

In 1820 Ephraim and his sons, Amasa and Eliab, were in Milan, about 20 miles from New London. Ephraim died there.

The Munger Book quotes a letter from Israel E. Munger, a grandson of Joanna and Ephraim, in which Israel says that Joanna was the daugher of Israel Fay. It seems clear, however, that the Joanna who married Ephraim was the daughter of Edward; she had a brother named Israel, not a father. Israel Munger further writes that Joanna's sister Lucinda married John Bullen. I have tracked John Bullen and he seems to have married Lucinda Clark; I have found no confirmation that there was ever a Lucinda Fay who married John Bullen.
   
Elizabeth, the oldest daughter of Joanna and Ephraim, married Samuel Day, the son of Eunice and Samuel Day.
