    He was murdered by the Indians while bear hunting near the Quinebaug River. Rudge Richard A. Wheeler says in his HISTORY OF STONINGTON: "...he met a squad of Indians, who were hunting in the same region who ordered him to clear out and leave the game to them, as they were the original owners of it--it he did not--they would kill and scalp him on the spot. He bid defiance to their threats, when they attacked him with their tomahawks and scalping knives. He defended himself as best he could, and a terrible struggle ensued which resulted in his death, and that of five of the Indians."
