  • Notes 
    • From Ancestry of Robert Harry McIntire and of Helen Annette McIntire (citation details below):

      Joseph lived west of Anguilla Brook, Stonington, where he kept an ordiinary, "which was considered by travelers better than any other tavern for miles along the road." He is said to have engaged in the West Indies trade, "by which he was very wealthy."

      His will dated July 8 1715, was admitted to probate in New London, Conn. His widow withheld the will for a time, and what is described as "an interesting controversy" took place before it was probated. She objected because whe was given only her dower, one-third of the estate. The other two-thirds went to her grandsons, Saxton Palmer and Saxton Bailey.
