áááááSergt. Job Drake was born possibly in the parish of Hampton, Arden, Warwick, England.1 He was the son of John Drake and Elizabeth(?) (__?__). He married Mary Wolcott, daughter of Mr. Henry Wolcott and Elizabeth Saunders, on 25 June 1646 in Windsor, Hartford Co., Conn..2,3 He died on 16 September 1689 in Windsor, Hartford Co., Conn..4
ááááá
Immigration: circa 1639, From England, with his parents.
Founder/Proprietor: Windsor, 1639.
Education: Signed his will.
Military Service: Job is referred to as Sergeant, probably of the militia.

áááááJob Drake emigrated to New England with his parents and siblings probably in 1639. His home lot in Windsor was 4 acres, 14 rods wide on Bloomfield Ave. extending to Mill-road and adjoined his brother John's land. Job was active in both town and church affairs. He is found on a list as having paid William Buell 4s 6d for a short seat in the meeting house. He served on the Jury of the Particular Court, Oct. 1655, and for six sessions after that. He was constable in the town of Windsor in 1652. Was fence viewer south side of the river 1655. Was chosen to perambulate the Hartford line in 1656, and was appointed to take a list of the town in 1658. In the year 1661 he with others were chosen to see about timber cut on the common land by Hartford men. In 1676 Job is credited as having given 5s 6d to the Connecticut Fund for Relief for Poor in other Colonies. This fund was developed to aid those in New England who had suffered much in King Philip's War.
áááááJob was referred to as "sergeant", a position he likely held in the local militia. A shoemaker by trade, and of modest lineage, Job managed to win the heart and hand of the daughter of Mr. Henry Wolcott, one of the first magistrates of Connecticut, and probably, after the pastor, the most distinguished man in Windsor. Job Drake is found on a tax list, possibly in 1675, which was divided into five classes. Job is found listed among those in the first class, "Those having a family, a horse [and] four oxen."
áááááJob Drake signed his will on 14 September, 1689. Both he and his wife died two days later on the 16'th of September. His estate was inventoried at £583-04-00, a very respectable amount.

áááááBorn in Windsor the tenth of eleven children, Obadiah Owen married Christiana Winchell in 1693 with whom he would have ten children. In 1695, his father John, now elderly deeded Obadiah lands in Windsor. In 1697, John deeded further Windsor property to Obadiah and his brother Isaac.

Queen Annes' War

áááááIn 1709, in the midst of Queen Anne's War, Obadiah was part of a contingent of Windsor men in Capt. Coffin's company, Col. William Whiting's regiment, who took part in what would be known as the Wood Creek Expedition. This campaign, under the command of General Nicholson, was to make their way north on a two pronged attack on Montreal in conjunction with the British fleet which would attack from the sea.
áááááThe force gathered in Albany in June and started the difficult trek north. They built stockaded forts at Saratoga and then proceed north along the Hudson, building a road on the East side of the river to the Great Carrying-Place. At this point they built a fort originally called Fort Nicholson, and later Fort Edward. From there they made their way towards Lake Champlain to Wood Creek where they built a fort called Fort Schuyler, later Fort Ann. At Fort Ann, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel John Schuyler, they built one hundred bark canoes and one hundred ten boats in preparation for their trip through Lake Champlain.
áááááAs it turned out, the anticipated arrival of the British fleet would not materialize. Problems in Portugal had changed the priorities of the British and the fleet was needed closer to home. For our soldiers preparing at Fort Ann, the weather had been hot and the trek through the northern swamps difficult. Malaria and dysentery were rampant at the Fort and nearly one-quarter of the troops would die of disease. In a letter to his wife, Capt. Matthew Allyn of Windsor tells her that himself, "Tim Phelps, Obadiah Owen, Nat Taylor, and Bartlett are sick, Taylor the worst." In October, with no British reinforcements and a great loss of men, Colonel Nicholson returned with his crippled forces to Albany. Still plagued by disease, Samuel Thrall, the husband of Obadiah's niece Elizabeth Owen, died aboard a vessel coming home from Albany.

áááááIn 1735, at the age of 68, Obadiah successfully petitioned the General Court to exempt him from paying poll tax because "distempers had fallen into his leg, the bones where-of are dislocated and he is thereby incapacitated to pursue his common business." Despite the apparent problems with his health, Obadiah and Christian both lived into their eighties. They died and are buried in East Granby where a stone marks their graves.
