  • Master to George Palmer Brigden abt 1826 in Norwich CT.
  • Conflicting dates and locations are given by authorities for activities in the latter part of his life. Marshall, in Modern History of New London County, says "[Cleveland] later lived in Worthington and Salem, Mass . . . . and in Zanesville, Ohio, where he was associated with a Mr. Bliss." The latter place and association is an error; John Bliss' partner was Francis Cleveland. 3

William married Margaret Falley on 19 Dec 1793 in Westfield MA. (Margaret Falley was born on 25 Nov 1766 in Westfield MA, christened on 30 Nov 1766 in Westfield MA and died on 10 Aug 1850 in Buffalo NY.)
