Notes for Ephraim Colton
Colton has some details on his life. He moved from Longmeadow, Massachusetts, to Enfield, Connecticut, about 1696. He died eight months before the birth of his last child.392
Notes for Esther (Spouse 2)
She died one week after the death of her last child. Given the number of children in this family and the death of both parents so close to each other, there must have been a considerable problem in raising the family. The probate and guardianship records at Enfield should be checked. I also imagine that Colton has something to say about this.
