           The East Haven (CT) Death Register           

by REV. STEPHEN DODD. These notes were contributed

              by Lylamae T. Chedsey


In 1736 many died of a throat ailment and in 1742 and 1743 there were many deaths from fever and dysentery. The winter of 1761 was one that saw a great mortality among the older family members of the town, many with a disease said to have been a very malignant pleurisy. Among those stricken, very few survived and many died within a few hours after being stricken. The deaths recorded 1773 and later were many time the date of burial rather than date of death. Stephen Dodd corrected some of these, when he could. The deaths reported in towns other than East Haven were in an appendix at the end of the East Haven data, listed by town in the records.

I decided to go ahead and copy the complete record as there are so many on the descendants of Deacon John Chedsey living and marrying into families in East Haven, I have been putting together a history of all his descendants and finding information on the daughters' lines is a lot harder to find. I am glad to share my information and will soon have a cd with Donald Lines Jacobus's book " Ancient New Haven Families" and "Genealogies of Connecticut Families" that I can do lookups for others needing information in the New Haven area. I also have the book "Early Families of Guilford, Conn" by Alvan Talcott to do lookups in.
