      He was listed as a resident in the census report in Queens Village, Oyst er Bay, Long Island, NY, 1715.[3108553.ged]

      [garygarbe60.ged]

      J. M. Pelton states on pages 34-37 of The Pelton Book,
      "Our knowledge of his life is unfortunately, very meager. It is, howeve r, known from the land records of Suffolk County, Boston, Suffolk Count y, Mass., that he lived for some time on Long Island, NY, then called Nass au, where he and his wife, Sarah, signed a deed of certain parcels of la nd in Suffolk, County, Mass, May 24, 1714. Nothing is known of the pla ce or time of his death, which last was probably at middle age. It is sa id that he lived in or near Huntington, L.I., which is probable, his young est
      brother, Benjamin, having bought a house and land there, in 1723.
      The maiden name of his wife, tradition says, was Whiting, which is also pr obable, as
      relatives of that name, it is known, visited her descendants in Connecticu t.
      Diligent search among the defective town records of Long Island has brough t
      no knowledge on these points or as to the death of his wife Sarah. As Samu el
      was probably married by 1700, or soon after, it is more than probable he h ad
      several children before the birth of Robert. This opinion is confirm ed by 'An
      account of money laid out for provisions for my Aunt Mary Pelton,' running
      for some length of time, and found on the last page of an account bo ok of his
      grandson, Samuel, now in possession of William H. Pelton, of Warwick, N.Y.
      now 1892, living in Passaic, NJ. Robert's son, Samuel Pelton with son
      Richard, and probably his two daughters, Hannah and Rebecca, as well as hi s
      father, Robert, and brother Richard, and, perhaps, a sister or two of Robe rt,
      lie buried in the 'Pelton burying-ground,' on the homestead in Darien now
      owned by John V. Hecker, of New York city and Darien. It contains a costly
      family vault built by Mr. John T. Hecker, deceased. From an account-book o f
      Samuel Pelton, owned by his grandson, Henry Pelton, now 1892, of Passai c, NJ
      and from the cover of a 'Sum-book,' used by his grandson, Henry Pelton, no w
      owned by Samuel Pelton, of Warwick, Orange County, NY, many of these name s, facts and dates have been obtained. Not a person bearing the name of Pe lton now lives in Darien, Conn., neither a person of the name who was bo rn there."
