Today, I remember my 9th great-grandfather, Samuel Wolcott. No mistake, he is the third Samual Wolcott whose birthday is this week. His son, Samuel Wolcott, celebrated his birthday last Monday and his grandson’s birthday was last Wednesday. This Samuel Wolcott was born on 16 April 1656 in Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut Colony, British Colonial America. He was the first ancestor in my Wolcott line born in America. Samuel married Judith Appleton on 6 March 1678; they had nine children.
He died on 14 June 1695 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut Colony, and was buried at the Village Cemetery in Wethersfield.
