Rockwell, 'a prominent and highly respected member of the community.' He removed, probably, in the spring of 1654, to Saybrook, as the birth of one child appeared in 1653 on the Windsor records and the death of another in May, 1654, on those of Saybrook. Here he remained until the spring of 1660, when, with a company of the Saybrook colony who had organized themselves into a church, under the care of Rev....Read MORE...
