John Rosewell 1688

One of our crypt mysteries: no known date of birth; he was possibly related to William and Richard Rosewell of Branford–who originally came from New Haven–but no confirmation has yet been found in colony records. William Rosewell was a merchant selling boards and timber from his mill on Furnace Pond (now Lake Saltonstall). He died in 1674. His daughter Elizabeth married Connecticut Governor Gurdon Saltonstall.
