|35.||Lt. Amos3 Stiles  (Robert Jr.2,
Robert1), was born Boxford, Mass., Apr. 20, 1705; bapt. apr.
22, 1705 (Boxford Records); m. Martha Skinner, "June ye 24 1736."
"Lt. Amos Stiles, died Oct. 3, 1758, in ye 54 year of his age." His marriage
and death are recorded at Hebron, Conn. From the land Records of Lebanon,
Conn., we learn that "Amos Stiles of Hebron, Conn., purchased estate at
L., Sept., 1745." The following was found at Colchester, Dec. 17, 1886,
by Dr. D. W. Patterson: "Est. of Amos Stiles, of Hebron, dec'd, Amos Stiles,
administrator, presented acc. 2 Ap. 1759, and asked for a distribution,
and was 'allowed' to be guardian to Benjamin, Aaron, and Edmund Stiles,
minors." The word "allowed" indicates that they were over 14 years old,
and chose him. Samuel Tiler and Asa Phelps were app. to divide the estate.
The inventory of the estate, L170, was made 18 Nov., 1758. The Probate
Records of Colchester show that the estate of Amos Stiles was settled there.
