Land Records*27 April 1736Joseph Phelps purchased "a certaine persell of bog meadow lying in Hebron" from Samuel Heaton of Hebron on 27 April 1736.1
(Petitioner's Witness) Divorce Filing14 September 1747Joseph was a witness for Samuel Heaton of Lebanon, Windham County, Connecticut, when Samuel petitioned the Superior Court on 14 September 1747 to grant him a bill of divorce from his wife Sarah (Hawes) Heaton. Samuel's petition stated that he was married to one Sarah Hawes on 10 December 1706, and lived with her and did all the duties of a loving, kind and faithful husband to her until sometime in the month of November 1743, at which time she departed from him to some parts of the Jersey with a design never to return and live with him again and that, without any just cause given her by the petitioner, she did then and has ever since deserted him and has not since performed any one of the duties of a wife to him and hath broken her marriage covenant, for a time period of more than three years. Joseph Phelps's confirmatory testimony, written at Hebron in September of 1748, reported that Sarah Heaton, wife to Samuel Heaton of Lebanon in the County of Windham did some time in the month of November in the year 1743 set out to go to a place called Black River "beyond York Government", as he understood, with a load of goods on her horse, and had not heard that she had returned home to her husband, and had often heard that she had not.2,3,1
