Excerpt from Connecticut Historical Collections, Containing a General Collection of Interesting Facts, Traditions, Biographical Sketches, Anecdotes, Relating to the History and Antiquities of Every Town in Connecticut: With Geographical Descriptions Though small in territorial extent and population, Connecticut is second to none of her sister states in the virtue, genius and enterprise of her sons. Considering the amount of her population, she has furnished a large proportion of distinguished men in almost every department of life, and some of the most powerful states in this Union are largely indebted to her for the elements of their greatness and prosperity. The early history of Connecticut, in its various parts, has been ably written by Dr. Trumbull, the venerable historian of his native state. To this work the author is deeply indebted, as he is also to the Gazetteer of Connecticut and Rhode Island, by John C. Pease and John M. Niles, Esqs., a work of much labor and merit. For the account of the towns in Middlesex County, Field's Statistical Account has fur hished much valuable information. The extracts from the most ancient newspapers were taken from files of the New Haven journals, the earliest and only copies, it is believed, that are now in existence. These journals are in the valuable library left by the late 001. William Lyon, a distinguished antiquarian, and are now in possession of his son, William Lyon, Esq. A gentleman to whom the compiler feels himself un der lasting obligations. To the various gentlemen in different parts of his native state, who have furnished information for this work, the author would here return his grate ful acknowledgments.
