    Notes 
    • WALTER CAPRON was a forgeman, and settled in Groton, near New London, Conn. The information I have obtained about him and his family is by a letter from Giles Capron, one of his sons, which is as follows:-
      "Walter Capron, deceased, lived to the age of eighty-four years. He died possessed of a good farm in Groton. Had two wives; by the first he had seven children, - three sons and four daughters. Their names were Samuel, Elkanah, William, Elizabeth, Alice, Sylvia, and Sibbel. They all lived to be old people, and were all married, except Elkanah, who died young. Samuel was lost at sea; he left a wife and one child.
      "The children by his second wife were named Jared, Giles, .Simeon, and Hope. The oldest is dead, the rest are living in the town of Preston. My sister is seventy years old, and in good circumstances. My age is sixty-six, and I am possessed of a good farm. Simeon is an infirm man, and in low circumstances.
      "The grandchildren of the said Walter are numerous, - how many I cannot tell. The number of my grandchildren is forty four.
      "Dated April 23, 1814."
