Daniel & Patience were married by Daniel Mowry, Jr., Justice. All Comstock references and RI Vital Records give the date of their marriage as 7 Apr 1768. The "Comstock Family in America" lists a Deed dated 17 Feb 1768 made by Daniel Comstock and wife Patience and Jacob Comstock and wife Abigail to Jonathan Comstock. This deed was read incorrectly - it was actually in 1778 - see later.

The above land sale apparently marks the time the Comstock brothers moved from Smithfield to Connecticut. Pomfret was just west of Killingly. Thompson was a parish in the north part of Killingly along the RI and MA borders and became a separate township in 1785. Deeds are listed in Pomfret, Thompson & Killingly.
Pomfret, Windham Co, CT land transactions:
Vol. 6, p.182, 11 Jan 1778, Daniel Comstock purchased land from Benjamin Hubbard, Jr. for 1900£. One parcel was 110 1/4 acres with a house, barns, and a malt house. It was on Whippigman Brook on the South side of the Coutry Road from Pomfret to Windham. The second parcel was for 13 acres. Hubbard had purchased the land from Joshua Sabin the elder and his wife Mary. [The Sabin family were original settlers of Pomfret.] Witnesses were Daniel's brother Jacob and cousin Jonathan Comstock. [Most of this was sold to David Barton in March of 1881 - probably at the time Daniel relocated to Thompson.]

Although only an approximate birth of about 1784 is estimated for Lyndon - Brown was born in 1797 - the others can all fit neatly in between IF the birth order is correct as given in the Comstock books.
RI Genealogical Register, Vol 4, No. 1, Abstracts North Providence Wills, p.12
A Daniel Comstock witnessed the will of Elisha Brown of North Providence on 13 Nov 1801. Elisha was a cousin of Daniel's mother, Martha. There seems to be no other Daniel living in Providence at this time.
Several times in 1805 in the Providence Phoenix, there appeared the notice that Daniel Comstock of North Providence, had letters left at the Post Office.
The tax records of Lyndon Comstock in Lexington, Fayette Co KY, indicate an extra male for poll tax - very likely it is Daniel. He appears 1807, 1808, 1809. In 1810, Daniel would have been aged 65 and perhaps exempt from the tax as after that year only one white male over 21 is listed in Lyndon's household.
By 1810, Daniel and Sarah appear to possibly be living in the household of son Lyndon in Lexington, KY.
The following is from the Comstock books. Said to have moved to Providence from Smithfield after death of 1st wife. In the first settlement of Ohio he came west and brought Seth and William with him. William settled in Hardin County, KY; Seth and Daniel returned to Providence. Son Lyndon moved to Lexington, KY where Daniel and family eventually joined him. Daniel, wife, most of children buried there. This information was taken from a letter written to Noah D. Comstock by Caroline Porter, granddaughter of Daniel.
From Kentucky Gazette 11 Apr 1814: "Daniel Comstock of Lexington, formerly of Providence RI died April, 1814.
From Kentucky Pioneer and Court Records, H. K. McAdams, 1929, p.297
"Mr. Daniel Comstock, formerly of Providence, R.I.; residence of N. S. Porter. Apr. 7, 1814.
This section of the above book begins on p.294. Says that in the Lexington Public Library there is a large book, pasted full of Funeral Notices. The inscription in the front of the book reads: These Funeral Notices were collected by an honest colored man, named Cyrus Parker Jones, who, at his death, bequeathed them to J. M. Duff, who donated them to the Lexington Library, 1 Jan 1900. These notices began with "You and your family are invited to attend the funeral of _______ McAdams states that only gives name and date and reference to other relatives rather than repeat the entire statement each time. All are from Lexington unless stated otherwise.
DANIEL COMSTOCK and PATIENCE JENCKES were married on 7 April 1768 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island.8,161,218 PATIENCE JENCKES, daughter of JOHN JENCKES and RACHEL LAWRENCE, was born about 1750 in Smithfield, Providence County, Rhode Island.8
DANIEL COMSTOCK and PATIENCE JENCKES had the following children:
|Jenckes COMSTOCK212,219 was born (date unknown). |
Jenckes lived in Boston, MA. He was a ropemaker. Two of his half-brothers, Lyndon & Brown Comstock would also be involved in hemp manufacture - rope-making - in Lexington Ky. [The manuscript of Samuel Willett Comstock states that this information came from John Spickernagle, grandson of Jenckes brother William]
Caroline Porter, daughter of Jenckes half-sister Elizabeth, stated that Jenckes had lived for a time with his brother Seth and worked in the tailoring business, but they were involved with hemp at the time. This seems to have been the source for Jenckes' occupation.
I have searched Boston city directories, some began as early as 1787, up through 1820 for any Comstock. None found.
|Cynthia COMSTOCK died about 1834 in Adams, Berkshire County, Massachusetts.219 |
Will dated 25 Dec 1834 in Adams, MA made a bequest to her brother Seth of New York and mentioned sister Abigail Angell of Rhode Island, if she will live with Job Anthony in Adams. The will was proved 15 Apr 1835.
The 1830 Census, Berkshire Co, MA, Adams does have a single Job Anthony. He is age 30-40 and has two females in his household. One is also age 30-40; the other is age 70-80. Is this perhaps Cynthia?
In 1840, Job Anthony of Adams, Berkshire Co has the following in his household:
1m -5, 1m 5-10, 1m 10-15, 1m 40-50. 1f 5-10, 1f 30-40, and 1f 40-50. If this is Job from 1830, the younger female may be the parent of some are all of the children. There isn't an older woman in the household and some of the children should have been listed with Job in 1830.
In 1850, Job Anthony was still present in Adams. He was age 53, or born about 1797, consistent with the earlier censuses. His apparent spouse was Hannah age 46. Also in the household was Susan age 20, Job K. age 16, Edmund age 14. All born in Massachusetts. Ruth Harkness, age 41, born in New York, also lived with the family.
A WorldConnect search showed that the wife of Job Anthony was Hannah Harkness and they had married 3 Mar 1829. Job's parents were Edmund Anthony (1770-1821) and Jemima Hoxie. His Anthony grandparents were Job Anthony (b. 1714) and Abigail Bush of Portsmouth, RI. I did not find a Comstock family connection which might shed light on the strange bequest in Cynthia's will.
DANIEL COMSTOCK and Sarah FULLER were married circa 1782 in Providence, Providence County, Rhode Island.219 Sarah FULLER, daughter of Oliver FULLER and Sarah SMITH, was born on 3 August 1761 in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts.220,221
There is an intention to marry in Rehoboth, Bristol Co MA for Daniel Comstock to Sarah Pearse, 8 Oct 1784. He was of Providence. Was Sarah Fuller the widow Pearse/Pierce at the time of the marriage? No earlier married has yet been found for Sarah, yet this is the only marriage for a Daniel Comstock that seems plausible. Daniel was well acquainted with her father Oliver Fuller, and his brother Caleb, and if not actually living in Bristol County at that time, he was just across the river.
Living in Rehoboth was Josiah Fuller:
