DANIEL CULVER born 21 Sep 1723, Wallingford, CT; m. 17 Dec 1746, Patience Johnson, daughter of John and Sarah (Jennings) Johnson, b. 28 July 1728.     About 1771, Daniel, with his three brothers Samuel, Titus and Joshua, went to Wells, VT, and were among the first settlers of that town, and were also original proprietors.

In 1668 he built a house at Mystic, which his father occupied about ten years later. Major Fitzjohn Winthrop claimed this land by virtue of a deed from Joshua Colver and also as being within the bounds of a tract of land granted to Governor Winthrop by the town of Mystic in 1652/3 "of 20 Pole on each side of the river from the place where the flowing tides end." Judgment was given for Major Winthrop.
EDWARD COLVER -[ the same as in your other COLVER/CULVER line.]
I have left out the lists of children.
