NOTE:

Joshua Isham came to St. George from Colchester, CT., and made the first settlement there in 1784. He married Abigail Crocker about 1750. She was the daughter of Isaac Crocker and Elizabeth Fuller.

Joshua Isham, a drummer, enlisted Apr. 11, 1758, in the Third Company, Major and Capt. Joseph Spencer's, of the Second Regiment, commanded by Col. Nathan Whiting. Discharged Nov. 18, 1758 (French and Indian War Rolls, Collections of Connecticut Historical Society).

The births of his children are not recorded in East Haddam or Colchester. The dates here given are from a Bible owned by the late George Brewster of Irasburg, Vt., which was once Joshua Isham's Bible. The eight older children were baptized at Hadlyme 1754-1764.
