  • John/5h? Brooks3 b. Jul 1770
Esther/4 Brainerd, born 9 Mar 1748/49 at Haddam, Connecticut1, there married (1), 6 Oct 1768 (both of Haddam), John/4h? Brooks.2,3 (Her siblings Elizabeth and Phineas each married a child of Capt. Joseph and Rebecca Brooks of Haddam. Was her husband also a son of this couple?) Her husband died before Jul 1770, when their only child was baptised.3 She married (2), as his 2nd wife, 4 Sep 1771 at Haddam, Ozias Bidwell, a farmer of East Hartford, son of William Bidwell and Abigail Pitkin, with whom she had 11 children.4,3
     7 Sep 1794, one Ozias Bidwell of Hartford married Elizabeth Hale.5 He seems to have been a different individual, as Brainerd-Brainard Family reports that Esther Bidwell died 3 Nov 1801, "53d yr."3 ("The amiable consort of Ozias Bidwell. She [h]as left a disconsolate husband and 14 children to mourn her loss.").3 Ozias Bidwell, according to Brainerd, married (3) "Widow Smith, formerly a Butler," and died circa 30 Mar 1821 in Glastonbury, at the home of his daughter Esther.3
