The Puritan authorities of Hartford rebuked him more than once for these indulgences, which was probably one of the reasons he and his family eventually removed to Great Barrington and joined the Episcopal church there.

    Notes:

    In 1759 Timothy Edwards assumed the guardianship of his orphaned neice Sarah "Sally" Burr, age 5, and her brother Aaron Burr, age 3. The following year he married Rhoda Ogden and moved, with both children, to Elizabeth, New Jersey, where Burr spent the next decade. Edwards was a harsh disciplinarian, fond of corporal punishment, and the young Burr submitted to this with all the inclination toward conformity and obedience that he displayed in his later career, which is to say, he made multiple attempts to run away to sea. Eventually Edwards and the young Burr came to an understanding which included the hiring of a tutor to prepare the boy to enter the College of New Jersey (later Princeton). After an unsuccessful application in 1767, Burr was accepted in 1769, at age 13, with sophomore standing.

    Timothy married Rhoda Ogden on 25 Sep 1760 in Elizabethtown, Essex, New Jersey.

    Notes:

    From The Ogden Family in America, Elizabethtown Branch, and Their English Ancestry by William Ogden Wheeler (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1907):

    RHODA (Ogden) EDWARDS died at Litchfield, Conn., while visiting friends. She was a remarkable woman, loyal and conscientious. An autobiography of a nephew by marriage has this important entry: "In the summer of 1809 I met my cousin Aaron Burr at the house of our common uncle Hon. Timothy Edwards in Stockbridge....The day after Burr left our uncle's I called at the house to talk over the impressions of this unwonted visit. My aunt was a venerable and pious woman. 'I want to tell you, cousin,' said she, 'the scene I passed through this morning. When Col. Burr's carriage had driven up to the door, I asked him to go with me into the north room, and I cannot tell you how anxious I felt, as I, an old woman, went through the hall with that great man Col. Burr, to admonish him, and to lead him to repentance. After we were by ourselves I said to him: "Colonel Burr, I have a thousand memories associated with you. I took care of you in your childhood, and I feel the deepest concern over your erring steps. You have committed a great many sins against God, and you killed that great and good man General Hamilton. I beseech you to repent, and fly to the blood and righteousness of the Redeemer for pardon, I cannot bear to think of you as being lost, and I often pray most earnestly for your salvation." The only reply he made me,' continued the excellent old lady, 'was, "Oh! aunt, don't feel so badly; we shall both meet in heaven yet; meanwhile may God bless you." He then tenderly took my hand, and left the house.'"
