Wife of Edward Kellogg.
i. Joseph Kellogg (5), b. in Hadley, 29-Oct-1692, went to Brookfield with his father, to induce the sons of the first planters to remain, the town granted, at a meeting held, 8-Mar-1710, tracts of land, and among the other grants was one of, "40 acres of upland and 20 acres of meadow to Joseph Kellogg". One of the conditions of the grant was that those receiving the land should live in the town four years after they became of age. In the Hampshire Co, Recorder's book, in the Town Clerk's office, of Hatfield, is the following record: "July 12, 1710, John Grovenor, Ebenezer Howe, John White, Benjamin and Stephen Jennings, and Jos. Kellogg were slain at Brookfield. Ben. Wright, wounded Aug. 22, 1711." Immediately preceding this is an account of "The Desolation of Deerfield, Feby. ye last day Anno 1703-04". It is not known when these records were made, and it is possible that the record of the death of Joseph Kellogg was an error. One Joseph Kellogg, married in 1716, in Springfield, Hannah Morgan.

While, she is listed ... as being buried in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. It seems more likely that she was buried in Lebanon, Connecticut, being as her son Thomas was baptized at the Goshen Parish Church there in 1722, and she "agreed to the church covenant 25 Sept 1737" and was baptized 4 days later, likely indicating she was on her deathbed. This information was found, in "Genealogies of Connecticut Families from The New England Historical and Genealogical Register" (Reprinted for Clearfield Company, Inc., by Genealogical Publishing Co. Inc., Baltimore, 1998, 2006) in a section titled "Dorothy, Unidentified Wife of Edward Kellogg" by Ruth Lincoln Kaye, Alexandria, VA (pp. 348-351).
Final proof , in the form of a cemetery record would suffice.
