  • Note:
    Jehiel "went out west" probably between Mar and Sept 1745 and settled on a farm in a local ne ighborhood called "Merryall" some six miles from New Milford toward Kent in Litchfield county , Connecticut. The land records at both New Milford and Kent show several instances where Jeh iel Murray of Merryall sold land from Feb 4, 1745 to 1755. A judgment against him is recorde d in the Kent records in 1753.

    Cothren's History of Woodbury, CT says that in Oct 1748 eleven persons living in the southeas tern part of Kent and nine persons living in the northeastern part of New Milford petitione d the general assembly for liberty to hire a minister for six months of the year. This was o n the ground that the people lived from seven to ten miles from their places of worship in Ke nt and New Milford. Among the names listed were Jehiel Murray, Samuel Averill, James Terrill , John Guthrie, Samuel Cogswell, John Miles, and others. This church organization was probabl y located at New Preston, CT which is north ofNew Milford and southeast of Kent a short dista nce. The New Preston church records state that Mary, wife of Jehiel Murray was a charter memb er, joining by letter from another church. The records of the Congregational church at New Mi lford say that Mary Murray wife of Jehiel Murray was received into membership there 18 Mar 17 50.

    Death date uncertain. He is probably buried in the Merryall Cemetery, but there is no marker.
