    Notes 
    • Mr. W. W. Chapin of Providence says John Elderkin was in Providence about 1650 when Daniel Comstock was there. As Elderkin must have had a family at the time, this would furnish a motive for the migration of Daniel from Providence to New London.

      Daniel Comstock, Jan. 29, 1646, acknowledges a free grant of 25 Acres from Providence.

      Daniel Comstock, Providence, June 24, 1648, and other young men arrested for giving a false Indian alarm.

      Benjamin Smith and Dan Cumbstock propound their houses with their land to the town (Providence) for sale June 2, 1655.

      Ordered (Providence) that Hen. Neale have a six acre lot laid out to him adjoining to his meadow that he bought of Dan Comb-stock Jan. 27, 1657.

      Dec. 19, 1658, New London has given Daniel Comstock 100 A. of upland by the Sawmill brook.

      Daniel Comstock purchased, 1664, a farm at Oxoboro, near Uncasville (Hillhouse Geneal., p. 266) some of which land remained in the family as late as 1931. The Comstock Cemetery is located on this property.

      Hempstead's Diary, p. 32, says "Old Goodee Comstock died Feb. 21, 1713." This probably refers to Paltiah (Elderkin) Comstock.

      "Dec. 17, 1697, Peeter Strickland receipts to his brother-in-law, Daniel Comstock, administrator of the estate of his father, Daniel Comstock, for twelve pounds, for Samuel Young and Thomas Halliox of Southold, L. I., as their wives' part of the estate of their father, Daniel Comstock, deceased."

      Samuel Young and Thomas Halliox gave an order Oct. 9, 1696, to their mother, Paltiah Comstock, "to pay our patrimony due us, to our brother, Peter Strickland."

      Southold, L. I, Sept. 15,1688; Mary Comstock witness with Anna Youngs.

      Inventory, Nov. 13, 1683, of estate of Daniel Comstock, late of New London, deceased. Includes 150 A. bought of Mr. Loveland and 100 Acres above Sawmill brook, also 100 Acres given by the town above Sawmill brook and forgotten in the inventory: 221 pounds, 17 shillings and 6 pence. Administration to widow "Paltieill to bring up children, 'till Court order otherwise."

      Daniel was referred to by some as "Gideon." He was a volunteer, 1676, in the Narragansett War. [1]
