History of Norwich, Connecticut: From Its Possession by the Indians to the Year 1866 Author Frances Manwaring Caulkins Publisher By H.P. Haven, 1874 


Capt. Absalom King came to Norwich from Southold, Long Island, and had been for several years in the West India trade. His wife was Hannah, daughter of John Waterman. His youthful widow married, Nov. 8, 1733, Benedict Arnold. This is the earliest notice that we find at Norwich of Benedict Arnold, — a Rhode Island emigrant, whose name, when afterwards borne by his son, became synonymous with treason and apostacy. No intimation is given of the causes that brought him to Norwich ; but he appears to have been at first a seaman, and it is not improbable that some connection with Capt. King in that capacity first introduced him to the town and after* wards obtained for him the favorable notice of the bereaved wife, m and his brother Oliver are both distinguished by the title of Captain.
