Shared note
Matthias & Mary lived at Haverhill first, but soon after 1690, they, in company with his sister Sarah and her husband James (Henry) Kinsbury and several other Mass. families too the "Old Conn. Path" down to eastern Conn. where they took possession of the Quinebaug land east of the Appaquage or Little River which they had purchased from the sons of Gov. John Winthrop of Mass. This was the settlement of the town of Plainfield, Conn., the third town to be settled in Winham County. Disturbed and trouble times followed as this same tract of land was claimed by a group of CT men, headed by Messrs. Fitch and Tracy, who claimed the land had been given to them by the Indians. Fortunately their Indian neighbors, who were numerous, were friendly and willing to share their hunting, fishing and planting frounds with them. Eventually the claims of Mass. and Conn. men were straightened out.
