1). From bonnie arnold Daniel left Connecticut because of trouble with the law. . . . From Johua Hempstead s Diary Sunday, June 12, 1720. I was on Jry of inquest upon ye Indian which died last night of ye wound he rec d of Daniel Ashcraft on Thursday last on his forehead with a stone. Fridey, Sept 10. Daniel Ashcraft brought in not guilty. Apparently, even though he was acquitted, Daniel felt the approbation of a community that relied on good relations with the Indians, and he left town, traveling first to New Jersey and then to Pennsylvania and Maryland. Believed to have been killed by Indians My Notes I ve never been able to prove that Elizabeth Lewis is his wife it s all just speculation. I don t think this Elizabeth Lewis is correct. Now I ran across a reference on gencircles, I think that said his wife s name is Elizabeth Ellis which would make a sort of sense what we have is passed down rumors that Elizabeth Lewis was his wife. I m trying to contact the gencircles reference to see what is what.
