He actually died and was buried in Windsor, Hartford, CT, but there is a stone for him in this cemetery and I found no stone for him in Windsor. His burial plot in Windsor is not known. This stone was most likely placed by one of Jason Dewey's heirs. The style of this stone suggests it was placed in the 1860's or 1870's.
Thomas' birth date remains unknown but it's supposed to be about 1603, possibly in Wales, though he emigrated from Sandwich, ENG in 1633. His wife's maiden name also remains unknown but her given name was Frances and at the time of their marriage she was the widow of a Mr. Clark. She later married George Phelps and most of the Dewey family moved with them to Westfield.
He became a freeman in 1634 at Dorchester, MA. He moved to Windsor in 1635 where he married Frances on 22 Mar 1638. He was a juror in 1642 and 1644.
