Assembly, Oct., 1762 His house and barn were burned by the British in 1779. The following obituary notice of him was written by Hon. Roger Minot Sherman: "He died at Norwalk on the morning of the 2d of April, 1806, after a shock of the palsy, with which he lingered about twelve days, in the 90th year of his age. On the 3d his remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of friends and relatives, among whom were his twelve(?) surviving children, and many of his more remote posterity. He has left ninety-one grandchildren and eighty-eight great-grandchildren, the whole number of his descendants, now living, being 191. For about thirty-two years he sustained the office of Deacon of the First Congregational church in that town. Deacon Benedict was one of those venerable personages by whom what remains of the pious habits of our forefathers, have been transmitted to the present generation. His long life has been eminently exemplary, and years to come will feel its happy influence. Every morning and evening witnessed his devotion. His sabbaths were faithfully appropriated to public worship and religious family instructions. An amiable, cheerful disposition, a sound mind, improved by a good degree of reading, and much reflection, and adorned with a bright constellation of Christian graces, comprised his character. At his funeral an appropriate sermon was delivered by Rev. Dr. Burnett, from Prov. xiv, 32. "The wicked is driven away in his wickedness; but the righteous hath hope in his death."
