CFE-F. Jonathan Maltby, b. July 10, 1746; bapt. Aug. 24, 1746, at Branford. (Jos.3, Dan.2, Wm.1). Mar. Dec. 8, 1769, Lydia BARTHOLOMEW, b. Aug. 18, 1748. (Bartholomew Genealogy).

(Goshen Statistics and Family Hist., by Lewis M. Norton, Vol. I, p. 548-9)

"Jonathan Maltbie--Once lived in the old house now occupied by Samuel Miles, on the north side of the old road, about three or four miles west from Goshen Meeting house. He mar. Lydia Bartholomew, eldest daughter of Josiah Bartholomew, previous to Feb. 13, 1773.

He and his wife were both in Lenox, Mass., Jan. 6, 1783. It seems they owned lands in the south-west part of this town, derived, probably, through her father.

It is said that the following were their children: Jonathan, Alice, Lydia, Jesse, Patty B., Betsy, George. Lydia married ---- Larribee."

Jonathan's Rev. War service follows: (From M. Olin, Secretary of the Commonwealth of Mass.)

"Jonathan Malby, residence not given, as serving as a Private, in a company commanded by Capt. Josiah Yale* of Lee or Lenox, in 1781, on an alarm at Stillwater. Enlisted: Oct. 10, 1781; discharge: Oct. 20, 1781. Service 12 days. Company marched from Lee and Lenox to Stillwater by order of Brig. Genl. Rosseter." (Also "Mass. Soldiers and Sailors in Rev. War, Vol. X, p. 152") *Mr. Olin gives Yates.

Mass. Rev. War gives Yale.

(Branford Deeds. Vol. 9, p. 433)

"11 July 1775. Josiah Bartholomew, Jr., Jonathan Maltbie and Lydia Maltbie, of Goshen, in the county of Litchfield, State of Connecticut--To Elizabeth , Rebecca, Eunice and Submit, daughters of Nathaniel Taintor, late of Northford in Branford, dec'd.--for # 75; 24 acres of land in Northford near a place called Hop Ground, it be- ing part of the farm that belonged to Deacon Samuel Harrington, of Branford--bounded:---

South--by land this day quit claimed to Jared Taintor. 
North--by Paul Tyler and land that formerly belonged to our father Bartholomews' heirs. 
West--by Josiah Rogers." 

(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 
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, m. 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.

"Book 14. Page 75." "Middle District Registry. Pittsfield" Attest. Harold F. Goggins, Registar."

He was the first Proprietors Clerk, the first Inn-keeper in Vershire, and owned a large amount of land. He died in 1801, and his widow kept the tavern many years afterwards. They had four sons and four daughters.

Jonathan Maltby, Jr. settled on the farm southeast from his fathers' now owned by his grandson, W. F. Maltby. Josiah, Jesse, removed to Illinois.
