  • Notes 
    • This original record in these notes is derived from two snippet sources: The Connecticut Nutmegger, 1975, page 280 and Robert Burrows and Descendants, 1630-1974 by Raymond Earl Burrows, page 492. The Moses birth date of 1829 we have in McDonald family records is that of Moses, Jr found in the 1860 Census living in his father’s house with Eliza Ashbey, age 17, born New York.

      Although the 1860 Census lists Moses occupation as a farmer, he was most likely a seaman and fisherman, as were most of his brothers. In a later source, Genealogical and Biographical Record, held by the Mystic-Noank Library, Moses is noted for the ownership of several fishing vessels out of Noank, CT. The Record also provides that he built his first home near the Cove in Noank where the family resided until 1846, and later built a comfortable home at 19 Pearl Street in Noank.

      A Seamen's Protection Certificate was issued in 1823 for Moses Ashbey
