Description

Excerpt from Genealogy of the Pelton Family in America: Being a Record of the Descendants of John Pelton Who Settled in Boston, Mass;, About 1630-1632, and Died in Dorchester, Mass;, January 23rd, 1681

As every author is expected to give some good reason for making a book, let us, who bear the name of Pelton, turn ourselves into a family gathering and hear what the compiler Of this work has to say for himself.

Born and reared in the township Of Warwick, Orange county, N. Y., and his own branch of the family being few in number, he saw few Of our name, but through the public journals learned that whether there were few or many Of us, the name was widely spread.

Naturally he desired to know more Of the history Of his race. His grandfather could only go back to his own grandfather, Robert, who came from Long Island, N. Y., to Stamford, Conn., about 1739. Tradition gave us the Old story, that three brothers, said to have come from Wales, emigrated to America a short time before the American Revolution. TO this was added the further fiction that one Of them settled at Saybrook, Conn., a second at New Rochelle, N. Y., and the third at Montgomery, Orange county, N. Y.
