JOHN CLOCK: Includes: List of his children. Birth/christening of John & Deborah Clock’s son Jacob (my gt gt gt grandfather). Admission to Stamford, CT. And his will.
John is my gt gt gt gt (x4) grandfather. He moved from New York colony to Connecticut colony …where a number of the other Clock relatives lived. They actually lived in the community of Noroton, which was absorbed into Stamford, then later on, it was absorbed into Darien …where it remains today. Many of the other Clocks remained in CT for generations, but John’s son, Jacob, moved back to NY. And his descendants then continued to push further west.
