   Daniel Brown (24), son of Thomas (2) and Hannah (Collins) Brown, born Stonington, Conn., Oct. 9, 1696; died Aug. 30, 1771, in the seventy-fifth year of his age. Interment on the Christopher Brown farm, two miles south of Pendleton Hill.
     Married first, Mary Breed, dau. of John and Mary (Palmer) Breed, June 21, 1721. She died 1744. The marriage certificate says; "Married, June 21, 1721, by Rev. Hezekiah Lord, Pastor of the Church in Preston, Conn."
    Married second, Prudence, who died Dec. 2, 1768, age sixty-nine years. She had no children. In 1722 his father, Thomas (2), deeded to his son a tract of land about one mile east from his homestead, nine months after his marriage to Mary Breed. Here Daniel and Mary built their house. The original site of the house is seen by the cut, where on the same spot Nathan (60), his son erected a new house.
    We find that Daniel (24) removed to the north part of the town, near his son Capt. Christopher (59). He was active in church work, living in the immediate vicinity where the First Baptist Meeting-house was built; in Stonington he and Thomas Holmes gave the land on which it was erected. The church was organized in 1743. Probably the first interments on the Christopher Brown farm were his first wife, Mary (Breed) Brown, in 1744; afterwards, his second wife, Prudence, in 1768; Daniel in 1771. Their headstones were imported from England. This burying ground is enclosed by a heavy stone wall. Years ago this enclosure of the dead is said to have been well kept; at present the grounds need attention, where these honored dead rest.

BREED FAMILY: ALLEN BREED OF LYNN, MASS, AND HIS DESCENDANTS, page 30, 31.
     John Breed, 4th from Allen Breed, the second John of Stonington, known first as Junior and later as Captain - the hero of our sketch - was born Jan. 26, 1700 and baptized in the First Congregational Church of which his father had been a staunch member for ten years. Captain John Breed lived to perform a service for his country so patriotic that it is a privilege to relate it here, to be recorded with similar data of more than family tradition. He married Oct. 11, 1728 Mary Prentice, daughter of Samuel and Esther (Hammond) Prentice, and of their eleven children three were sons: John 3rd, born Sept. 5, 1729 (married Silence Grant); Nathan, born Dec. 13, 1731 (married Lucy Babcock); Amos, born Dec. 23, 1744 (married Lucy Randall).
    Capt. John and Mary (Prentice) Breed were amoung the members of the First Church who united with Mr. Eells in organizing a new society, a necessity arising from the need of a church at East of town, Jan. 4, 1733. They had "owned the covenant" May 11, 1729, and on Aug. 2, 1741 "Capt. John Breed and wife were admitted to full communion." All their children were baptized. Capt. John Breed served as Representatives from Stonington in 1735, 1741 and 1746, and was Selectman in 1736, 1740 and 1764.
    It was in the twilight of his years that the young and stalwart men were answering to the call to arms. For Stonington was bonbarded by the British in 1775 and it was with dismay that citizens learned that one half of their force on defence duty had been ordered to New London. On Oct. 14, 1776, the Committee of Correspondence of Stonington "and sundry of the inhabitants thereof" petitioned the General Assembly at New Haven in a Memorial to return cannon, calling the British "those sons of tyranny and despotism sent by that more than savage tyrant George the 3rd." Among the 105 signers of this Memorial were John Breed Jr. and so many familiar familys names as to claim the interest of every descendant of Capt. John and Mary Breed.
     Many by the name of Breed have been recorded as Connecticut soldiers, sailors and patriots in the Revolutionary War. One of the most ardent and certainly the oldest patriot in Stonington was our brave and faithful Capt. John Breed, who, with 76 or more summers behind him, and with sons, grandsons, nephews and cousins marching to the front, remaining at home, bravely protecting his family, his invalid son Amos and his family and the stores of ammunition and supplies hidden within his old mansion home; for it was here where he fired upon the red coats through port holes near his roof. It is easier to believe than to prove that his son Amos loaded the muskats and Amos' mother, his wife and his children all contributed their share in defending this old home. Alas! that no one now remains who can tell us the thrilling tales about that family circle incident to those exciting times in Stonington!
    With the Revolution over and peace prevailing once again, the vast wilderness of the west attracted the younger and raising generation from all parts of Connecticut. Amos Breed had died in 1785 at the age of forty, only four years after his old father had passed away....

BREED FAMILY page 98,
    In the colonial records of CT, it appears that "Mr. John Breed, Jun." was made captain of the 3d Military Co. at Stonington in 1736. The "junior" makes it certain that this reference is to the son of the 1st Stonington John Breed, for the oldest John Breed in the next generation was only 7 years old in 1736. From the date 1736, this John was usually called "Capt. John Breed".
    On the records of the First Congregational Church of Stonington, it appears that "Aug. 2, 1741 Capt. John Breed and wife Mary were admitted to full communion".
    In the year 1780, the three sons of Capt. John Breed were living on three adjoining farms: his eldest son, Capt. John, Jr. in the house built in 1689 by the first Stonington John Breed, his 2nd son, Nathan, on the farm immediately north of it, and his youngest son, Amos, and Amos' family, whith himself and his wife Mary, on the next farm, north of Nathan's farm. We learn with regret none of the old Breed houses on these three Breed farms are now standing. But, on the first farm, the site of the bark mill built in 1689 by the first Stonington Breed was pointed out, and the mill stone from the old mill, with a round hold in the middle, was seen in the walk leading up to the house which was erected in 1900 when the first Stonington Breed house was torn down, after standing 211 years.
    On the next farm, the one once owned by Nathan Breed, is found the old Breed Family burying ground, now sadly neglected, the gravestones at all angles, and accessible to cattle running in the pasture from which it opens. Yet here are inscriptions, plainly decipherable, recording the deaths of twenty-four members of the Breed family, and some are records that have been sought for elsewhere in vain.
    Here is the gravestone of Captain John Breed. The inscription does not call him "Captain" as the probate records do, but "Deacon" This gravestone has been uprooted and lies flat upon the ground. The inscription reads: In memory of/Deacon John Breed/Who died Jan. 24. A.D. 1781/in 82 yr. of his age/The sweet rememberance of the just/When they sleep in dust.
    The stone for his wife reads
In memory of/Mary, wife of Dea. John Breed/Who died Nov. 5, 1799/in the 93d year of her age/Righteous live long on earth/And in old age resign their breath.
