From THE ST. JOHN GENEALOGY, Fourth Generation:
91 ii Elizabeth St. John
(John St. John see No. 262 was her guardian, Sept. 5, 1749),
m. John Abbott, Jr., b. Mar. 1, 1726-7;
d. Jan. 6, 1804, ae., 76; will probated in 1805; the son of
John and Eunice (Judd) Abbott. Eunice was dau. of John
Judd, of Farmington.

DEATH DATE CORRECTION: Both Family Search (the 1st of two entries) and the Norwalk Historical Society quote John's death as occurring in June of 1804. The photo of the gravestone looks more like Jan. than Jun.. AND, using the number of years and months leads to January as the obvious choice. Verification is also found in "The St John Genealogy", see above.
Thanks to contributer Katie Lorenz (#47642607) for this correction.

In appreciation of service to our country in both the French and Indian War and in the Revolutionary War. John married my cousin Elizabeth St John and the couple raised eight children during those difficult times in our nation's history.
