    BURIAL: Joined church in Stockbridge, Mass 7 Nov 1762. Moved to Brown's
    Settlement on Boston Purchase 17 Feb 1793 (now Newark Valley, Tioga Co., NY).
    Wife Sarah was first member of new church 20 Nov 1803. Enoch was under censure
    from previous church, so could not join church at above until censure was
    repealed in 2 Jul 1820. It was repealed because censurer confessed lying on his
    death bed.

    Excerpt from "Slosson Genealogy" by D. Williams Patterson:
    His ear-mark for cattle, was recorded in Stockbridge, in March 1768, "a half penny in upper side of both ears"; and he was chosen constable in 1769.
    The church book of Stockbridge has the following records: "At a meeting of the church, August 17, 1786, on a complaint exhibited against Enoch Slosson, a member of the church, for charging Capt. Whittlesey with partiality, in giving his evidence under oath, and that he had sworn to that which he (Slosson) had never said or thought.:
    "Voted, that is appears to the brethren of this church, that Mr. Slosson has broken Christian rule in making the charge against Capt. Whittlesey, which is contained in the complaint."
    "At a meeting of the church, 21st Dec., 1788";---
    "Voted, that whereas Mr. Slosson refuses to make the satisfaction which the laws of Christ require for the offenses of which he has been quilty; he be solemnly admonished by the pastor and brethren of the church, to repent of these his sins. The admonition was accordingly immediately given him by the pastor and brethren."
    In February 1793, they left Stockbridge, for Brown's Settlement, on the Boston Purchase, with a portion of their children, in company with their son Ezbon, and his family. They reached their destination on the fourth day of March, and began their settlement in a bark-covered shanty, on the bank of the creek, near where Sturtevant's gristmill stands, in the village of Newark Valley, Tioga County, New York. This was the first house built on the site of the village; and the wives of Enoch and Ezbon Slosson, were the first women who dwelt within the limits of the town; and they did not see another woman from the time they came into the place till the next September.
    On the 17th of November, 1803, more than ten years after they settled in the wilderness, the first church in Tioga (afterward, the first church in Berkshire, and now the first church in Newark Valley), was formed. Mrs. Slosson, having been granted a letter of dismission from the church in Stockbridge, Oct. 2, 1803, was admitted to this new church, on Sunday after its organization, Nov. 20, 1803; she being the first one admitted. Mr. Slosson could not join with her, as he was still under censure of the Stockbridge church, and so remained until Capt. Whittlesey, on his death-bed, acknowledged the wrong which he had done to Slosson; asking pardon of him and of the church; on which the church sent to Slosson a letter of dismission, on which he joined the church in Berkshire, July 2, 1820. His troubles so wore upon him, that, at times, during the last years of his life, he was subject to mental derangement. His first log house (the bark-roofed shanty belonged to his son) stood where Dr. C.R. Heaton now lives. They were buried in the old burial ground in Berkshire, New York.

    Other Events:

    • Also Known As: Nathaniel Slauson
    • Occupation: Between 1776 and 1780; Tax Collector, Kent, Conn.

    Notes:

    Born probably at Bedford, Westchester County, NY. Moved to Stamford Connecticut with his parents about 1697. First to use name SLOSSON, although he was referred to a SLASON, SLAWSON and SLASSON. He was left a full orphan in 1706 and removed to Deerfield, Franklin County, Mass. Raised by his mother's relative. After his marriage to Margaret Belding they resided at Norwalk until 1739, when they became part of the original group of settlers at Kent, Litchfield County, Connecticut. Interred in the family cemetery at Kent. He bought nine acres of land at Captain's Plain, in Norwalk, Conn., Feb. 24, 1720-1721; and five acres at Kent, in Norwalk, March 1, 1720-1721; and in each deed was described as of "Deerfield, Mass." He probable began his residence in Norwalk directly after buying the land; for he was called "of Norwalk," Nov. 16, 1721, when Samuel Belden gave him a deed of all of said Belden's right in the undivided lands in Norwalk, "in consideration of the love and good will which I have and do bear toward my loving cousin, Nathaniel Slawson of said Norwalk." He was chosen constable of Kent, Dec. 4, 1739; the town meeting was held at his house Sept. 1, 1740; and in 1744, he was a lister, and his own estate was valued at L55 10S. They joined the church in Kent, July 12, 1711.[Slosson 11-20-00 Greene.FTW]

    Moved to Stamford, CT with his parents about 1697. He was left a full orphan in 1706, and removed to Deerfield Franklyn Co., MA, where he was raised by his Mother's relatives. About 1717 or 1718 he returned to Connecticut, and resided in Norwalk, Fairfield County. Married 11 December 1719 at Deerfield to Margret Belding. They resided at Norwalk, mostly in the portion known as Wilton until 1739, when they became part of a group of original settlers at Kent, Litchfield County, Connecticut. He died 8 Mar 1787. They are interred in the family cemetery at Kent, CT.
    Nathaniel, after being orphaned, was brought up by Daniel Belding (1648-1731), who was undoubtedly related to his Mother. This is further substantiated by the fact that Daniel Belding had a sister, Susanna, and was therefore in all probability Nathaniel's uncle. Daniel Belding's son was William Belding, who married Margaret Arms, and their eldest child was Margaret Belding, who married Nathaniel. Nathaniel and his wife were, therefore, first cousins, once removed.
    With Nathaniel, the SLOSSON spelling of the name is first used, with the
    exception of his eldest children (daughters), all the dedcendents of Nathaniel
    have used this spelling. His father's (Eleazer's) will mentioning him by name,
    was proved under the name SLASON. His marriage record, on file in Deerfield,
    gives his name as SLASSON. When he returned from Deerfield to Norwalk with his bride he purchased land on 1 Feb 1720/1 and made a further purchase on 1 Mar 1729/1. In both these deeds he was "NATHANIEL SLASON". On 16 Nov 1721, Samuel Belden (Belding) (for differences of spelling of this name see notes for Eleazer Slason) presented him with a deed for rights in land "in consideration of the love and good will I have and do bear toward my cousin, Nathaniel Slawson, of said Norwalk". This is particularly interesting for two reasons: first; the reference to his "cousin". Previous genealogist, failing to have the connection between Nathaniel's mother and the Belding family, interpred this to mean "cousin" as a result of his marriage to Margaret Belding. Actually, Samuel meant what he stated when he said "cousin", and it is somewhat far reasoning for him to be guilty of publicly stating his "love" for a cousin-in-law. Nor did the donor say "Nathaniel Slawson, husband of my cousin, Margaret Slawson", which would be the usual phraseology in those days of meticulous accuracy as attested by the many documents so worded that are on file for other families, as well as other branches of this family. On close scrutiny, there seems to be no question that Samuel Belden (Belding) was acknowledging the blood relation existing between himself and Nathaniel Slawson.
    He bought 9 acres of land at Captain's Plain in Norwalk in 1720 or 1721, 5 acres in Kent; and on 11 Jun 1722 two parcels of land on E side of the E branch of Pimpsewaug River at Pimpsewaug, Norwalk, and on 14 Aug 1729, 1 1/2 acres from his father-in-law, William Belding adjoining his homestead in the Parish of Wilton which included the districts of Kent and Pimpsewaug, CT.
    He and Margaret were members of the church at Wilton at the ordination of Rev. Wm. Gaylord 13 Feb 1732-3.
    In the first division of lands at Kent in May, 1738, he drew lot #21 about 3
    miles NE of Kent village, in the district called Flanders; and tradition says he
    settled thereon about 1 Nov 1739. He was chosen constable of Kent 4 Dec 17339.
    They joined the church at Kent 12 Jul 1741.
