      From The Hazen Family in America (citation details below):

      There is no doubt that he is the Samuel Hazen of Woodbury who sold a dwelling house standing a little west of the Eight-mile Brook, 16 Nov. 1781, but there is no evidence as to how long he had been in Woodbury. He bought six acres at Kettletown, Southbury Parish, in 1787, and sold it 31 May 1790. The census of 1790 gives in the family of Samuel Hazen of Southbury, separated from Woodbury in 1787, four boys under sixteen and three females, one doubtless his wife.

      There is a tradition that he was a soldier under Washington in the Revolution, that he spelled his name with two z's, and that he was too lazy to write the two z's and only used one commonly.

      He moved from Connecticut to Sussex County, New Jersey, it is said, when his son Ithamar was twelve years old or about 1794.
