TENTH GENERATION

584. Michael Griswold II was born on 7 Mar 1665/66 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut. He (or she) died on 24 Jul 1742 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut. Michael Griswold was a mason by trade; served as collector of taxes and chimney viewer; drew land in 1694; and was appointed ensign of south trainband 1710.
There has been considerable conjecture as to the age of the Michael Griswold house, some having placed its construction about 1730. Since Michael was to receive this property after the death of his mother after 1684, he undoubtedly lived with her and began the enlargement and improvements to the house at the time of his marriage in 1692. The present house , without doubt, was constructed about the home of Michael I, or an improvement upon that ancient home. We must surely give this house a much earlier date. It was the home of Michael II. The records disclose no other.
Michael died at age 76yrs. His will is dated 09 Oct 1741, Hartford probate XIV:24,25; Manwaring III:409 with inventory dated 24 Aug 1742. Legacies went to sons Stephen, Caleb, Elisha, Jonathan, David, Nathaniel, Joseph; daughters Elizabeth, Wife of Zachariah Bunce; ann, wife of Dosetheus Humphrey, with Caleb and Elisha executors.
