(p. 435) "11th July, 1775. Josiah Bartholomew, Jr., Jonathan Maltbie and Lydia Maltbie of Goshen in the County of Litchfield, State of Connecticut--for the consideration of # 135 received to our satisfaction of Capt. John Taintor late of Northford in Branford, dec'd.--do forever quit claim to his Grandson, John Jared Taintor, 23 acres of land lying in Northford at a place called Hop Ground, it being part of the farm that belonged to Deacon Samuel Harrington of Branford, dec's--bounded:
South: by land that belonged to the wife of Samuel Rose, Junr.
East: by Highway
North: by land this day quit claimed to daughter of Nathaniel Taintor.*
West: by Josiah Rogers."
*I do not understand this, as the context of the Deed sent me states: "quit claimed to John Jared Taintor."
(These "July, 1775" Deeds, make me feel very doubtful that this Jonathan Maltby can be the one in a Lenox, Mass., record, recording "his ear Marks for Cattle. 1774-5."
Also we have a Pittsfield, Mass. deed dated 1781, where Jon- athan Maltby is called "of Goshen.")
"Hibbard's Hist. of Goshen, Conn., p. 415," states:
"Lydia, daughter of Josiah Bartholomew, b. Aug. 18, 1748, mar. Jonathan Maltby. Her brother Josiah, mar. 1775, Martha Maltby and her brother, Isaac, mar. 1775, Thankful Maltby."
Note. Martha Maltby was sister of Jonathan Maltby. Thankful Maltby was dau. of Daniel (3), Dan. (2), Wm. (1).
In so far as can be learned, Jonathan Maltby was not of Lenox, Mass., until 1781, when he purchased land of Jonathan Hinsdale, who is conceeded to be a first settler of Lenox. Below, through the kindness of Mr. F. A. Molby, of Baldwin, Kansas, is a copy of cer- tified photostat of a Deed from Hinsdale to Jonathan Maltby.
