Taken from the book " Candee genealogy" published in 1882 by Charles Candee Baldwin

"On his tombstone, still extant in West Haven, he is called Zachariah: "Here lies y"-' body of Mr. Zachariah Cande, died 1720, aged 80 years." By his side lies his
wife : " Here lies y' body of Mrs. Rebekah Cande, wife of Mr. Zachariah Cande, died Sep 22, 1739, aged 91 years." This would make him born about 1640. He first appears in New Haven, as marrying, December 5, 1670, Rebecca Bristow, daughter of Henry Bristow, or rather Bristol, of New Haven. She was born February 4,1650, and age overdated on her tombstone — a circumstance not unusual.

Mr. Orcutt (from her tombstone no doubt) says she died September 22, 1739, aged 91. Zaccheus lived and died in West Haven, probably at the southeast corner of the Green, where, down to a late day, remained the dwelling of his son Samuel. They had children:

Rebecca, born December 22, 1671.
Hannah, bom November 14, 1673.
Zaccheus, born January 5, 1674.
Samuel, born July 24, 1678.
Mary, born February 18, 1680.
Desyer/Desire, born October 20, 1686.
Abigail, born April, 1689."
