While still in England, Eulalie apparently died, was put in a coffin for burial, and when signs of life were seen she was resuscitated and recovered to live to a great age. They migrated to America and their house burned in Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1638.
They had moved to Agawain (now Springfield), Massachusetts, by 1640 when the town gave permission for he and two others to "seeke out for ye use each of them a Connoe Tree." People of today are used to doing what the law does not forbid, people in the 17th century did what the law would allow.
He was on the first committee elected in September 1644 to govern the town and served for ten years. From 1649 to 1662 he was Clerk of the Writs and issued summonses in civil suits, granted writs of attachment, and kept records of births, deaths, and marriages. Was a Deacon and one of four men who conducted Sabbath services in 1656 and 1657 in the absence of the minister.
Hard money was scarce in those days, and he frequently hauled goods to Hartford to pay his bill at John PynchonÂ’s store.
